A Pleasantly Rustic Lunch at Craft

[Translate] After reading about Craft for years, I’ve always thought about eating here but hating the fact that they don’t serve lunch, except at its sister branch Craftbar. That’s until I read from the NY Times’ blog, The Diner’s Journal that Craft started to serve lunch again. Interior photos (more…)

The Day When I Felt Like I’m Going to Have a Stomach Explosion

[Translate] Ever since the party, K have been urging me that I MUST go to Pinisi. She mentions it frequently on her blog and as much as I love that girl, I had the odd feeling that she went through hypnosis to actually to be that enamored with a bakery. I mean, I love bakeries but I don’t really have a favorite. The main reason why I go to Bouchon Bakery (and write a TON about it) is because it’s tasty; the food’s pretty; and it’s the biggest reason of all: it’s the closest thing to my campus besides Whole..

The Day When I Felt Like I'm Going to Have a Stomach Explosion

Life After The Party…More Desserts

[Translate] After riding out the joy of hanging out with a bunch of good friends at my party, life’s never been the same. I have to go back to the reality of school: papers needed to be done and the coming of finals within a month from now, my happiness has decimated to nothing. Instead of sounding mopey, I’ve gotten a few good edible presents! I’ve received two Donna Toscana bars from K and a box of Mary’s Chocolate and Amano bar from Robyn. (Thank you!! In case I haven’t told to either of you.) It’s chocolate related since they..

My Birthday Party! (and need people for a another party…)

[Translate] Note: This event was taken place last Saturday…I know it’s late but I was actually waiting for a few of Robyn’s photos (which I will credit and link to when it occurs) since I had relatively little photos of the party-goers since I was busy playing hostess of sorts toward the second leg of the party. Edit (11/17/07) : I NO longer need people for my other upcoming party…but thanks for a few of you who have responded! I threw myself a birthday party…a day later. Since I have to take care of family and school stuff that I..

A Memorable Birthday Dinner at Degustation

[Translate] Last night I went to Degustation for dinner. You might be wondering why would I choose this place? Well, I’ve been meaning to eat here for a while ever since I’ve read Frank Bruni’s review of this place, it seems very enjoyable in terms of atmosphere and food. Foodies at Chowhound likes this place a lot and the fact I love tapas. I ate this dinner with Ariel since he loves Catalonian food…or anything that tastes good and he’s willing to splurge with me. Signage on the door Looking through their window… (more…)

Oh, for the Love of Sweets…

[Translate] Ya know, I should be paying attention of my intake of pastries these days, especially with the fact that my birthday’s next Friday. Aging would mean the slowing of metabolism, cholesterol levels are bound to be high by now, especially with the blood sugar levels with the stuff I’m eating. I would eat healthier foods but I would feel deprived if I don’t eat sweets or any “bad” foods. At least I’m working out… A few days ago, I went back to Amai Tea & Bake House since everyone from the previous post about them, were commenting about trying..

A Casual, Laid Back Lunch (of sorts) at Amai Tea & Casual Elegant Desserts at La Maison du Chocolat

[Translate] Saturday was kind of unusual for me. It’s rainy yet warm, I feel so stinkin’ tired because I want to finish up my papers…and I passed by an anti-war protest in Union Square as I walked around the Greenmarket (or Farmers’ Market, as most New Yorkers call it). I know the latter didn’t make sense, but it follows the “unusual” part on a tangent… Rain, rain, go away… Protesters (more…)

How Sweet It Is…to Love Their Pastries!

[Translate] As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, this is going to be about the Lower East Side bakery, How Sweet It Is. I’ve read about this tiny, charming place from the NY Times’ Dining section from Wednesday’s paper. Since I love bakeries, I might as well check the place out on Thursday when my class schedule is more flexible. (more…)
