2015 Year in Food Review

“I’ll have the usual.”  Maybe its a sign that I am getting old or as my friend tells me, I know what I want. 2015 marks my final year in my twenties. I’ve noticed my eating habit very often included the restaurants I have already been to and I would order my usual.  There’s theContinue reading “2015 Year in Food Review”

2014 Year in Review

photos taken with instagram @iluvpotato “Nothing is achieved without effort.” 2014 has been a milestone. It was not easy, starting the year and on my birthday being unemployed.

New York City Brunch

We work for the weekends and brunch is one of the many more reasons to why.  It is the one meal that fanfare into the weekend and it is the one meal people seem willingly to queue up to a hour or more for a table in the city.  Perhaps it’s the bloody marys, theContinue reading “New York City Brunch”

Ten Under a Buck

With high cost in rent, food, transportation in most cities these days, it can get depressing living in a big city like New York City where on a daily basis where most of us are watching our budget.  I am probably the worst Chinese when it comes to crunching numbers but what I did inheritContinue reading “Ten Under a Buck”

Pitas, Sandwiches, and Banh Mi

Paris Baguette I discovered Menupage to be a pretty unreliable source or at least for Istanbul Grill.  The reviews on menupage was better than it actually is. It is located on 14th street between 8th and 9th avenue and it is divided as half takeout and half dine-in.  I have past by it a fewContinue reading “Pitas, Sandwiches, and Banh Mi”
