I have never been, so it was quite exciting to see what all the buzz was about for their famed lobster mash, amazing cuts of steak and decadent butter cake. Strangely, I didn't experience any of this, but the dinner was still worth it and totally memorable that I wouldn't mind coming back yearly, or like, whenever.
Girls' Night Out - Dinner & Museum in LA to view the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror exhibit. It was a rough waiting game to secure the tickets, but we were able to secure our spot for the after hours viewing at 8pm on December 23. If you get a chance to see, definitely make time to go! If not, you can view my adventure here :)
I love noodles, but I haven't delved too heavily into ramen until now! The boyfriend has been going through ramen cravings, so whenever he's hit with an insatiable appetite, I'm there for the adventure. We had to run some errands in El Monte, but he wanted to try this spot out.
I've definitely had my eye on this spot for awhile, so when my brother was craving pizza, I knew just the spot to try. We arrived to a packed house on a Friday evening, but decided to wait it out at the bar for an open table. Once seated, we thought we knew what we wanted until we heard the daily special of the day.

The last week of 2016 was jam packed with new experiences and the beginning of 2017 was no different. Waking up in a foreign country was a bit surreal, but we continued on our journey with a day spent with family I never knew I had. We hung out like the locals and got a taste of some home cooked meals.
Hanoi holds a special place in my memory. It was where I celebrated the end of 2016 and turned a new leaf in 2017. It was quite an experience and felt a bit surreal to be out of my comfort zone, but I wouldn't have traded the new friendships or the time I spent with family members I met for the first time.
Newport Beach Restaurant Week: This review is past due, but it was a memorable lunch as we were celebrating my brother's birthday! My boyfriend made the reservation and we helped the bro roll into his big 3-0.
It's been awhile since I've posted, but I'm glad to hop back on to share with you some favorites from Stonefire Grill. I was invited to a media tasting a few weeks ago and shared a meal among friends, local bloggers and influencers. It was fun to rediscover some popular items, especially considering it's been a few years since I've eaten here.
Organized by The Orange County Asian & Pacific Island Community Alliance (OCAPICA), Tastemakers of OC took place at the premier destination, SOCO & The OC Mix, and brought together renowned chefs across Orange County to celebrate the heritage and culture of the API community through taste samplings.

Although this trip was originally intended for Yelp's Spring Break events throughout the weekend, many steps were taken around San Diego. I walked around 18k steps! From brunch to attending the Yelp Carnival and even hitting the gym, I made the most of my day exploring San Diego. Read more for the goods.
The Gudetama x Curry House collaboration has finally landed across all restaurant locations and I couldn't be more excited to check it out. Since I learned about Gudetama, I have been mesmerized by the lazy egg and have collected many items with its lovely face. So of course, this is no exception!
I know it's been a few weeks (ok, maybe few months) without an update, but I was out of the country on vacation. It was right around Christmas when I left, but Popcorn Chicken was the last meal I ate in the US before the new year. Here's what I had before I left for my 2.5 week excursion to Vietnam. I'll have a recap soon!
This post is a bit delayed, but after experiencing this BrewHop Tour Bus during Halloween weekend, I had to share how awesome it was. For anyone interested in craft beers around Orange County, this is one tour you should definitely try with friends for a night on the town or any special event you may have.
