Taiwan classic pearl milk tea – Sharetea

Taiwan classic pearl milk tea - Sharetea
With red bean. Large 110 PHP
Sharetea, Boracay PHILIPPINES

I love boba milk teas! Sure they’re just milky sugar bombs, but that doesn’t mean I don’t crave them every once in a while. And they’re great to drink on the beach because they’re nice and cold. The pearls are fun to eat and the entire drinks is just yummy. 🙂

Date shake and ice cream – Hadley Fruit Orchards

Date shake - Hadley Fruit Orchards
Date milkshake. Small $3.75
Hadley Fruit Orchards, Cabazon CA

Mmm, I really like Hadley’s date shake but a little definitely goes a long way. It’s pretty sweet and I enjoyed the pieces of crystallized dates in it. Someone told that they used to make the shakes from scratch, but now they’re pre-mixed and dispensed from a machine. It’d be nice if they started handmaking them again, but the ladies working the place are kinda old and slow so I doubt that’s gonna happen.

Ugh, I didn’t know that this was gonna come pre-scooped and slightly freezer burned! Lame!

Cookies and cream cookie – Anthony’s Cookies

Project 365: Day 50

So I biked to work this morning, and I was stupid and didn’t eat anything after I got to work so I ended up being super tired and lethargic all day. I really should remember to eat something after an hour-long morning ride. And another downside was that I gave in to temptation and stopped by Anthony’s Cookies on the way home. I was SO hungry!

Cookies and cream cookie Anthony's Cookies

I think this is their most popular cookie, and although it’s very good, it’s not my favorite. There’s something about the texture that I don’t particularly like. Or perhaps it’s the extra greasiness of the cookie bits. You should try this, but I think you’ll find that you like the other flavors better too. $1.25

Carnitas – Nopalito

Carnitas Nopalito

Tender pork braised in orange, bay leaf, milk, cinnamon and beer. $15
Nopalito, San Francisco

This is one beautiful packet of pork, NOMS!!!  The carnitas at Nopalito are so frickin’ good!  The meat is so flavorful and tender, it’s ridiculous!  You can smell and taste all the ingredients in the lovey braise.  The cut isn’t overly fatty, but I think that the fatty pieces were worth every calorie!

Carnitas Nopalito

You might not be able to tell from the pic, but you get a very generous portion of carnitas. David and I could barely finish the order, granted we did eat a few other things. 🙂

The pork is served with a cabbage salad, pickled jalapenos and salsa de tomatillo, and warm tortillas for wrapping.
