Café Zupas on Eastern Ave.

Last week I attended Cafe Zupas' VIP party for local bloggers and tech-savvy food lovers.  I really didn't know what to expect only that I knew that they specialize in sandwiches, soups, and salads, and that they're based from Utah.  Upon arriving we were greeted by the staff, who were all friendly and knowledgeable.  They suggested for us to choose the Try 2 Combo.  I decided to go with a sandwich and salad and my husband chose a sandwich and soup:


The salads were made right in front of us:


They let us choose our own desserts:


Our meals:


I got the Thai Mango Chicken Salad.  I was surprised by how much flavor was in every bite!  This came with chicken, mango, Thai peanut sauce, bell peppers, red onions, peanuts, wonton strips, iceberg lettuce, and House-Made sesame ginger dressing.  Even though there wasn't too much dressing and Thai peanut sauce, they absolutely were the reasons that made this salad amazing along with the fresh ingredients!:


I haven't had turkey in awhile so thats why I chose the Turkey Cranberry Sandwich. It came with turkey, cranberry sauce, sprouts, cucumbers, mixed greens, muenster cheese, and House-Made honey mustard.  Again, I loved every bite of it, I swear I'm not being biased!  They weren't lying when they say they use fresh ingredients, I really could taste the freshness with every bite: 


For dessert I had the Chocolate Hazelnut Creme Brûlée w/ Cinnamon Almonds.  It was soft, creamy, and the hazelnut added a nice subtle flavor: 


Chocolate Creme Brûlée w/ Berries


Cafe Zupas, unlike many restaurants, make their soups from scratch daily in their kitchens.  This is the Wild Mushroom Bisque- This is a mix of shiitake, crimini, and button mushrooms.  I definitely recommend trying this soup.  Even if you're not a mushroom lover, this soup will change your mind about mushrooms!:


Awards Cafe Zupas have received:



This was a very fun event!  Other than eating, the staff interacted with guests by playing games and giving out A LOT of prizes.  My husband managed to win a snazzy water bottle... Yay!  Thanks again for the invite and holding this great event Cafe Zupas!

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii! We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines . Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing: and a big brownie!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
