a 72 hour food tour of los angeles…

This past weekend, our favorite New York food-lovin' couple, Mari & Jason, were back in town. So instead of only 36 hours like last time, we had a whole 72 hours to take them on a Part 2 food tour of LA {and to convince them to move here}. We focused on more a few […]

thai street food style in {portland}…

For the last of my Portland eats, here's a spot that's near and dear to my heart. Growing up in a Thai family who owned Thai restaurants, I've always been the biggest fan of Thai food…but also very critical of the authenticity of many spots as well. I had heard great things about Pok Pok […]

molecular asian street food in {beverly hills}…

Despite their controversial opening, the Vietnamese-inspired, Red Medicine, explores Southeast Asian street food in a whole new {delicious} way. With big doses of molecular gastronomy in many of the dishes, everything not only looks beautiful, but tastes great too. My favorites include: Chicken Dumplings {in lettuce wraps}, Pintade Fermier {like sweet & sour chicken but […]

a 36 hour food tour of {los angeles}…

This past weekend, we took our visiting foodie friends on a whirlwind 36-hour food tour of LA. Since they were only in town for a short while, Bob and I tried to pack as much as we could into very little time. While others take their guests to museums and tourist attractions, we go to […]

chinese seafood heaven in {san gabriel}…

While there are definitely foods & restaurants I miss from the East Coast, one thing about food in LA that can't be beat is the manifold of amazing ethnic foods here…especially the variety and authenticity of Asian food. Last week, one of my Chinese friends took me to Newport Seafood in San Gabriel—a restaurant that […]

drawing your food…

  I'm guilty of being a food paparazzi who takes pictures of every dish I'm having for the first time. In another life, I'd love to be an illustrator who can draw quirky and fanciful versions of what I'm eating instead {Imagine if real paparazzi drew celebs instead of photographing them! Sounds much more fancy}. […]
