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…

My favorite places in Koreatown, Los Angeles

I’m still pretty new to Los Angeles (almost 5 months now) but I already have a few favorite places in each neighborhood. Here are my favorite places in Koreatown (so far). The funny thing is they’re not even Korean-food related.. Oh hey it's the real life filter that shows up on snapchat when you're in @koreatown! If you know what I mean you know what I…

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…

Morning Special

Not too long ago, I saw someone’s post about a “morning special” in Manhattan’s Koreatown. Since I found myself awake at 5 AM this morning, I figured today would be a good day to take advantage (and make an adventure out) of this morning special. I took my time getting ready, had a leisurely and comfortable commute into the city and got to New Wonjo…

Feast your eyes on General Tso

Surely you’ve heard of General Tso’s Chicken… In fact you’ve probably ordered it before. The fried boneless chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce, found in Chinese restaurants across the United States…  I’ll admit it was one of my favorites growing up. mmm I have since moved onto more authentic Chinese dishes: dan dan noodles, xiao long bao, char siu bao…ever since I found out that…

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!)
