Lucky Rice Feast LA

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Lucky Rice LA Feast at Vibiana, in DTLA. Believe it or not, this is the 4th time I’ve attended! The first one was in NYC, the ones after that were after I moved to LA. It’s kind of crazy to think how much has changed everytime I go. One thing that hasn’t changed is my obsession with discovering and…

Favorite places in Culver City

So…. I moved again. I’ve lived in 3 different neighborhoods since I’ve moved here. Crazy I know. Culver City was such a wonderful neighborhood to live in.  Yes, it has its own In and Out but there’s so much more that I’ll miss. Here’s what I recommend and what I’ll have to come back for: New School of Cooking + Cafe  It’s in the heart of the Culver City Arts…

I finally went! OIJI- korean restaurant in the East Village, NYC

If you’re in the mood for Korean food and you want a place where you’re given a bunch of free banchan (side dishes), with massive amounts of food… then go to K-town. You can go with a large group, eat until you’re stuffed and throw back a few bottles of soju amidst the loud chatter of the restaurant. You might even run into someone you…

On my Radar: Korean restaurants not in K-town, NYC

Full disclosure: i’m not a food writer and I’m definitely not the foodiest person out there… but if there’s anything I do know, I’d like to think it’s good Korean food: how it’s made, what it looks like, and what it tastes like. I grew up watching and helping the women in my family cook. When I was younger, my grandma would take the time and care…

Things I love: Yummly

Have you ever found yourself in the kitchen with ingredients but no idea what to cook? I know that even if I buy groceries knowing exactly what I’m going to make that week, I always end up with extra groceries that I don’t know how to use. Sometimes I’ll just make “clean out the fridge” pasta, but when even that doesn’t work, I turn to…

Homemade Granola Bars

In an effort to eat healthier and make more of the food I eat, this past weekend I made granola bars (for the second time) at home. I don’t know what the best part is: getting to put my favorite ingredients in or knowing exactly what is in them.  They taste quite good if I do say so myself and I get better and better each…

Dinner in the kitchen of my dreams

If it wasn’t already obvious, I love to learn and share; this is no different when it comes to food. Not too long ago, I blogged about how Urban Girl Squad announced a Sage Pesto cooking contest where we were given a Sage Pesto recipe to serve with a dish of our choice. Well, I won that contest (read/see my winning dish here) and my prize…

The Foods we ate in NY- adventure week continued

So after our little adventure to the Brooklyn Bridge, I took my sister to Chinatown (one of my favorite places in New York), to eat some of my favorite foods that she’s never tried before. It’s only natural that after some adventure she tries new foods too, don’t you think? Besides, getting bullied by the weather and walking quite a bit is EXHAUSTING- we were…

Macaron Day NYC

When I found out that March  20 was Macaron day NYC, I got really excited for a moment but then realized that I probably would not be able to participate in its yummy goodness because of classes and meetings I had scheduled for the day. Still, I shared the link on Facebook so that even though I couldn’t take part, at least other people could….

CNY Brunch at Bloomie’s

One lovely Sunday morning (February 10) amidst Fashion Week events and after the blizzard Nemo hit, I had the privilege of attending a private fashion brunch at Bloomingdale’s to celebrate the Chinese New Year. (See more photos after the jump!)
