Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

I’ve had
Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop 727 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211 on my radar for a while and when I finally got there, I was surprised to see that it was a no frills, old-fashioned looking shop. For some reason, hearing about red velvet doughnuts made me think it […]

Most of the time, we choose a restaurant of my long wish list. This time, we didn’t want to wait for a seat at plan A, so we chose chose one near by. We lucked out having spotted the little yellow awning of
Sandro’s 306 East 81st Street, New York, NY 10028 […]

Five Days in London

Monday, October 25, 2010

I spent five days in London, where grapes are called Sultanas, French fries are called chips, and arugula is rocket. This time it was just me and my gal pals, no Lon. Still, the only way I know how to travel is to migrate through food and let all other sight-seeing be incidental. The hard […]

Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

You may remember that long ago, my favorite place for soup dumplings was New Yeah Shanghai. After years of patronage, something must have changed  (most likely the chef)  and the soup dumplings, as well as other dishes, were never the same again. We even went back two more times just to make sure it wasn’t […]

Delhi Palace

Sunday, October 3, 2010

I never eat Indian food in the summer. It just feels like a cold weather food to me, heavily spiced and rather rich, all in a good way. As soon as temperatures drop a bit, I’m ready for that over-stuffed feeling. My chef friend, Jen, recommended
Delhi Palace 37-33 74th Street, Jackson […]

Wondee Siam’s Secret Menu

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

I remember back in the day, I was a little afraid of telling people that I met Lon on friendster (kind of like facebook). Meeting people on-line was taboo or just seen as dangerous. True, I did have a stalker once but it was a short-lived incidence and I am now happily married to the […]

Lunch at JoJo

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

After such a lovely lunch at Jean Georges, I decided try another lunch at another one of his restaurants. This time, it was
JoJo 160 East 64th Street, New York, NY 10021, where I dragged along a different crew, mom and Grandma Olia. If you check his website, you’ll notice that JoJo […]

Lunch at Jean Georges

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Lately, it’s been hard to enjoy meals the way that I’m used to. Mild nausea is still mild nausea so I haven’t been making many plans to go to restaurants. It feels like a waste of time and money. Still, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity when my dad’s friends were in town. Uncle Richard […]

More of Eating Orlando

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Only 30 minutes after our breakfast at Bull & Bear, we were on our way to lunch at
Pho 88 730 North Mills Avenue, Orlando, FL 32803 to eat with a local food writer/blogger, Scott Joseph.
The spring rolls were disappointing since they used Chinese spring roll wrappers, not the bubbly kind. The […]

New First Impressions of Orlando

Saturday, August 28, 2010

When Denise Spiegel from Orlando Convention & Visitors Bureau invited me on a culinary focused trip to Orlando, I’ll admit, I was skeptical. Orlando, Florida is not particularly well known for food. It’s thought of as a tourist town where you go for Mickey Mouse, not a fine dining experience.  Yet, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. […]
