Japanese, Mexican, American, and Filipino Food!

JAPANESE FOOD
I officially kicked off my summer on the 1st week of May by eating at Yama Sushi for the 30th+ time haha... My sushi partners were Iza and Nessa. I think we ordered about 11 rolls, which was a lot for our tummies!

Ready to eat with the chopsticks!

A lot of spicy tuna on top yumm

I ate at Yama Sushi AGAIN the other night with Inna, Wendell and their relatives. I had the best service I ever had from them! Maybe because we had this awesome waitress who I've never seen before serve us and I guess they made our sushi fast because our party was big.

I love the quality of food served here in Yama Sushi.  I tend to compare the difference in the fish quality of another restaurant to Yama.  Some special rolls I recommend is the Screaming Orgasm (it really melts in your mouth), if you enjoy the taste of garlic try the Harry Potter Roll, and the Yama Crunch Roll if you like a bit of crunch!

MEXICAN FOOD

On my friend's last days of being a -teen, we ate at Casa Don Juan near Downtown. Its not hard to miss on Main St. because the restaurant itself is quite colorful. If you long for authentic Mexican food, this is the place to eat at. I ordered the Mojarra al mojo de ajo, and assumed it was just a fish fillet with garlic sauce (I should've asked the waiter to specify more about the dish), but I got way more than that, a whole fried fish! I couldn't finish it in one setting! I feel like I got more than what I paid for including their tortilla chips and flour tortillas, which tasted home made to me =D

AMERICAN FOOD

After my CNA graduation, my family and I ate at TGIF. I think all of their desserts are made for more than one person. Look at my vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream and hot fudge. It was enormous!




FILIPINO FOOD

Yesterday my cousin, Dave, turned lucky number 7. We had the typical Filipino food served for his birthday. As you can see, all three of my cousins were excited! Not really, they weren't hyper yet:

Puto, carioca, pork bbq, pancit, fried fish, etc.

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !

Birthday Month!

For my 30th birthday, I decided to celebrate it for the entire month of November.   Since I've reached this milestone in my life, why not spread out the celebration?  Here are highlights of my birthday month: Cake, Cake, Cake My coworker got me this lovely Guava Cake from Andrea's World of Cakes , thank you Fran! Hawaii Trip '16 My family and I were in Hawaii for a bit.  Being there for my birthday was not the primary reason though :p We had this 'ono (delicious) and authentic Hawaiian meal from Waiahole Poi Factory : Don't forget the chili water and Shoyu! There's been many poke bowl shops poppin' up in Vegas.  But none yet that I've been to can beat the OG poke bowls from Hawaii!  Pictured here are poke bowls with simply marinated raw fish and rice.  We also had some sashimi and musubis from Foodland Farms : Li Hing Mui Frost from Frostcity :                   These huge Banana Mac Nut Pancakes with Coco
