When my sweet tooth calls my name, I typically don’t opt for donuts. But this time, I did because I learned about a place called Gonutz for Donuts in Fremont, CA that had amazing decorated donuts. I had to check them out.
Happy 2017 from one of my favorites cities in the world: Taipei, the capital of Taiwan! Married to a Taiwanese man and family, I’ve learned and tried so much of this incredible cuisine over time. For tonight’s dinner and the tastiest food, we went to not a restaurant but hit the streets of the city to Shilin Night Market. Whenever I’m in Taipei, I always make a point to eat and enjoy as much as I can here.
About a few blocks from Parc de Joan Miro and Barcelona Sans train station, Hubby and I dropped by 365 to grab our lunch for the train. Seeing many locals there, we had to stop by and find out why this was their “Go To” place.
Upon arrival, the first thing I noticed were the beautiful baguettes. The loaves, boules & sliced bread looked just as lovely and delicious!
Bánh Mí – the Vietnamese Sandwich – is my all-time favorite lunch item. Growing up in Southern California, I could always get it freshly made at any sandwich shop in Little Saigon or my Grandma’s house.
I discovered Kopitiam, this hidden gem, during one of my walks in Chinatown. It’s a small “stop and go” place that serves typical Malaysian dishes for breakfast and snacks. It’s run by a Malaysian family, and their kitchen is the size of my bathroom…Tiny! Resourceful, creative…their food has to be authentic and good. I made a mental note to return.
I went back and fell in love with the place. My prior thoughts were also correct. This is now one of my top 10 places in Chinatown.
Happy New Year! Hello, 2016!
Every New Year’s Day, Hubby and I go out to eat dumplings. Even though my family is Vietnamese and his is Taiwanese, we grew up with the tradition of eating dumplings on New Year’s Day.
It’s New Years’ Day and cold outside – Perfect for a bowl of noodle soup and dumplings. We went to Lao Bei Fang in Elmhurst.
