Yu-Yu

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 specializes in kushi age (Japanese deep-fried meat, vegetable, and fruit on skewers).  Their deep-fried delights don't compare to what you eat at fast food chains.  Upon seeing them you'll notice they're not soggy and not leaking thru with oil, they're deep-fried just right!

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!

If you're a deep-fried food lover, want to go somewhere for a cheat meal, or just wanting to have a meal in a nice and quiet place I recommend coming to Yu-Yu!

P.S. 
Yu-Yu's hours: 
Lunch 11am-2pm
Dinner 5pm-11pm

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 !

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
