After watching a whole series of a Korean show, I was craving Korean food (people were eating in every episode!). I decided to go to E-Jo ...
I had received an e-mail from a fellow food blogger, Michael, of S.O.F.A.T. Blog asking if I wanted to have dinner with him. I had never ...
|The entrance - love the ceiling!|
|The screen menu in front of the restaurant|
|All menus had different photos on the back and they|
|Ready to eat!|
|Roasted Jalapeño Poppers- All came with bacon,|
cheddar ranch, and one fiery surprise. Since there was four of
us, one of us got the fiery surprise (this jalapeño had a lot of
seeds)... And it wasn't me!
|OHH look at the cheese oozing haha|
|We all shared the Kale Granny-Apple Caesar Salad-|
topped with parmigiano-reggiano cheese+mini herb-
garlic croutons. The dressing was mild and the cheese
complimented it well. Since we were all going to eat a
lot of meat, fried foods, and dessert, I wanted to
balance the meal with some fiber!
|Our second appetizer was Fury Chicken Wings- comes with |
four tangy hellfire blue cheese wings+four honey
wasabi wings. I liked both of these, the sauces were
|The waiter left us with this iPad to look for drinks to order!|
|My friend had this drink, I think it |
had 'super antioxidant' in the name?
|The Britannia Burger- comes with English sharp cheddar|
(my favorite)+mango chutney+arugula+Brioche bun
|I got the Just Fries- they're hand cut,|
comes with chipotle ketchup+curry ketchup.
These two ketchups should be sold
everywhere! They both added a nice kick to
|Me and Michael each had a our sugar fixes by having the|
Sticky Toffee Pudding Push Up Pops- Salted peanut ice
cream in a push up pop. I felt like a kid again! I could
distinctly taste the sweetness of the ice cream/toffee and
the salty peanut at the same time, I loved it!
If you're craving for some authentic Mexican food, I recommend eating at Tacos El Gordo (they have a few locations in town): Just ...
|Just half of the menu. Red meat and organs are mainly served here!|
|I remember getting Sopes (on the top middle and right). |
Eating sopes are quite messy, but so worth it!
Also everyone is given a side of cooked green onions and pepper (top left)
|Since my non-eating meat husband was with us, his classmate asked a cook|
if he could remove the carne from the Carne Asada Fries. All this sour cream,
guacamole, and cheese was already filling without the carne!
Commonwealth located in Downtown - East Fremont District is one pub I find to be interesting place to hang out at. Here are reason...
|The vintage decor|
|Not your traditional art|
|Crowded, but great service! There were some interesting craft beers |
they had on tap.
|An upstairs patio! The night we went electronica, old school 90's|
hip hop, and trap music were playing... All my favorites!
I had heard Yu-Yu was a restaurant that recently opened in China Town, so of course I had to check this place out! This restaurant special...
|I loved their simple decor, it was splendid!|
|Tofu Salad- this was one good d*mn salad !!|
|As you can see the kushi age are lightly breaded and small.|
I remember we had shrimp, water chestnut, lotus root,
shiitake mushroom, squid leg, silver fish, Asian pear, etc.
I never knew so many foods could be fried and still taste
great than just by itself! The foods are typically dipped
into a batter of egg, flour, panko (bread crumbs);
and deep-fried in vegetable oil.
|Tamago (Japanese omelette) with a side of |
daikon (a white radish).
|Chilled Udon- I've never tasted udon noodles that were|
gummy like before. The noodles' texture and them being
chilled was actually refreshing to me, I wanted to keep
eating more of it!

A few days ago, California Pizza Kitchen announced their partnership with Colby Red, a red wine whose proceeds support charities that promote heart health. Colby Red is specifically a California cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Shiraz, & Zinfandel. This sounds like a wonderful blend and definitely good for the heart!
In other news, CPK's Valentine's Day menu will be available for four days from 2/14 through 2/17. This menu for two includes an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert for $30. It would sound nice to accompany that Valentine's Day meal (or any meal) with a glass of Colby Red!
After a week back home in Las Vegas I still longed for the food back in Hawaii. Luckily when my husband and I were in Chinatown, I saw the...
