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.

This trip has been on the back burner for what seemed like 10 years in the making, but 2016 became the year I finally traveled to the country my parents called home until they emigrated to the US. My parents were thrilled to share their childhood memories with my brother and I as we, the Nguyen fams, learned and rediscovered the charms of our ancestral lands. This recap also took me a year in the making, but it's finally here!
The last leg of the journey is upon us and although we didn't have a concrete itinerary planned out, we managed to get through a lot for the day. From viewing the city from above in Mount Royal to exploring Old Montreal, we passed through several landmarks. And we definitely didn't skip out on food either!
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.
Another one checked off the list for OC Restaurant Week! It's always fun trying some place new, but even more so with friends who are willing to ride the adventure with you. Although Wednesdays are usually reserved for my weekly tradition of wine, the group decided to venture out for dinner instead.
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.
