Assorted macarons - Fresh Flours
Omg, I’m in heaven! I bought a box of these to take to a family event because everybody loves macarons! My nieces and nephews can destroy these things in zero seconds flat. As macarons go, these were very good and the staff at Fresh Flours were great.

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. 🙂

Imperial rolls – PPQ Beef Noodle House

Imperial rolls - PPQ Beef Noodle House
Cha gio. Crispy fried rolls with ground pork, taro, carrots, and silver noodles. Served with lettuce, mint leaves and cucumber with nuoc mam. $6.75
PPQ Beef Noodle House, San Francisco CA

We don’t order the fried Imperial rolls very often because they’re less healthy than the fresh spring rolls. They’re so much tastier and fun to eat (since you get to wrap them in all the greens) though! I’ve always like how the wrapper gets super crispy and hard and blistered. Noms!

Tom khar kai soup – Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar

Tom khar kai soup - Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar
Coconut milk chicken soup with mushrooms. Set Menu A £11.80 per person
Tuk Tuk Noodle Bar, London ENGLAND

Wow, this set menu was a great deal! Unfortunately, the food was horrible. This soup was probably the highlight of the meal. Everything else that follow was poorly prepared and odd tasting. Hmm, I would say that maybe I’m just used to American Thai food but I’ve spent a month and a half traveling through Thailand so I have a decent idea of what authentic Thai food should taste like. And this wasn’t even close! 😦

Garlic kimukatsu set – Kimukatsu

Garlic kimukatsu set - Kimukatsu
With cabbage salad, rice, miso soup, Japanese pickle, and choice of special sauce. $19
Kimukatsu, Honolulu HI

This kimukatsu flavor was pretty good, but a little greasy again. I really enjoyed the dipping sauce and the Japanese pickles were delicious and totally assuaged my salt cravings. The miso soup also had strips of fried tofu in it which was tasty!

Cat Cora Kitchen, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Angus beef burger - Cat Cora Kitchen
I ordered with burger cooked medium/medium-rare and you can see that it’s still a little pink in the middle and super juicy, noms! I will say that the patty could have used a little more seasoning, but it was very good. The sweet potato fries were nicely fried and delicious!
