Why Liège? | Day 51

When people go to Belgium, they go to Brussels or perhaps Bruge, but there I was on a train to Liège. Who goes this city while backpacking Europe? This girl. You’re probably wondering why Liège was even on my itinerary? I’ve got three reasons: waffles, frites and beer. And that’s exactly what I got. I hadContinue reading “Why Liège? | Day 51”

Cinque Terre | Day 43

Ever since I left the Scandinavian islands and made my way inland through Europe, I was anxious to get to a coastal city again– Cinque Terre, the five towns that sit alongside the cliffs off the coast in Italy. The salt-filled wind brushed against my skin; I made it. I finally made it from the BalticContinue reading “Cinque Terre | Day 43”

Meet up at Meatup BBQ | OCBeerBlog

Sometimes when you’re constantly planning and going on adventures, you don’t ever get the chance to sit down and document them because you’re too busy just living in the moment. Recently, I got to grab a bite and some brews with the man behind OC Beer Blog and he asked me to guest write on hisContinue reading “Meet up at Meatup BBQ | OCBeerBlog”

Backyard Exploring | Crystal Cove

I get caught up with wanting to explore things in the distance, so I told myself to explore my surroundings. Crystal Cove is part of Newport Beach in Orange County, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Pacific Coast highway. What sets this beach apart from the rest is the Historic District of beach cottagesContinue reading “Backyard Exploring | Crystal Cove”

What’s better than shabu shabu? Organic shabu-shabu!

On a quest to find a shabu shabu restaurant open late, I stumbled upon a new shabu shabu joint that opened two months ago in Anaheim Hills. This one wasn’t open late, but what really sold me was that this new restaurant boasted organic ingredients. I had to go the next day! True Shabu brings a whole newContinue reading “What’s better than shabu shabu? Organic shabu-shabu!”

Smorgasburg Food Flea Market | Brooklyn

Holy CRAP! Where to start? I’m the girl who has dreams about food so when I heard about Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, it easily became my main focus for our trip. Smorgasburg is a food flea market that takes place on the Williamsburg waterfront on Saturdays and on the Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5 on Sundays. IContinue reading “Smorgasburg Food Flea Market | Brooklyn”

Prosciutto on my Mind

To the food I can’t stop thinking about, I got you on my mind- the prosciutto sandwich. I can barely spell prosciutto, constantly double-checking if I need to add or remove a letter, but when it comes to eating it; well, don’t mind if I do! When I first fell for prosciutto, it was whileContinue reading “Prosciutto on my Mind”

Craft Beer + Food Trucks

What’s my favorite part about living in Southern California? It’s not the perfect weather or the ability to get from the beaches off the Pacific Coast Highway to the snowy mountains of Mammoth in a matter of hours. It’s the fact that I can drive to at least five different breweries all within ten minutes, give or take,Continue reading “Craft Beer + Food Trucks”

Food Truck Fries | OC

First post of the year! What better way to start than with an ode to my favorite, FRENCH FRIES!!! (Or freedom fries for whoever thought that could actually be a thing) My last run with fries in 2013 was with a newer food truck called Porko Rico, the same creators of The Viking Truck. Behold the Captain Porko Fries:Continue reading “Food Truck Fries | OC”

Maybe It’s Cold Outside

An unexpected duet between Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I’m in love with this take on, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” The switching of gender roles was nicely done. In California, “cold outside” will most likely be the somewhere in the 60s and what better way to warm up than with RAMEN! At 1906 reviews onContinue reading “Maybe It’s Cold Outside”
