Lake & Irving
I never would have found this place if my friend didn’t live right next door. I had the Kulua Pork sandwich with tobacco onions and coleslaw. So yummy. It is always hard for me not to choose a burger, but this time I am glad I got the pork sandwich! They had delicious drinks too including a really yummy margarita!
Came here before going out after an entire week of workshop at work; tempura battered fish with serrano peppers, coleslaw and crema. The serrano peppers were added on at my request and that extra heat balanced out all of the crema!
Cocoa & Fig
Flourless chocolate cake! Tasted like pure chocolate and went down nicely with a glass of milk! Thanks to Lisa and Austin for buying it for me!
As part of weekend adventure to Chicago, we went to Carnivale for food! We started with the fish tacos, tempura battered with pickled onions and a spicy habanero salsa. Then I got the Chicken Milanese, which was an herb crusted amish chicken breast served with arugula salad and a sweet plantain mogo. I have always heard great things about this place, and it was well worth it!
While visiting my little brother, my family and I had korean food at the hotel across the street. Kimchi veggie pancakes, bulgogi bi bin bap and a seafood udon soup, yum!
Bahnmi sandwich with kimchi with Paul :)
Guajillo’s the Shortcut to Mexico
Surtidos tacos (steak, pork loin and pastor meat) all mixed on 6 mini fresh tortillas!
Chuan’s Chinese Restaurant
Going home means getting to eat delicious food, including szechuan delicacies! We got dan dan noodles, which are thin noodles with peanuts, spring onions and ground pork. Then we got a cold spicy chicken dish and broiled fish and bean sprouts!
