Lunch at Landmarc (in Time Warner Building)

[Translate] I know my long absence from this blog might have let a few of you readers wondering what the heck is going on? Well, as you have noticed since last week I have been complaining about school work, e.g. papers and tests, it’s making my fooding life has practically rendered to nothing. The only thing that is keeping me sane these days is blasting my iPod with Linkin Park’s songs. I’m feeling a bit burnt out but I’m bearing it…barely. Anyways, as some or few of you might have known Landmarc has opened its doors in the Time Warner..

Homemade Bread, Macarons, Almondine, and Bouchon (again)

[Translate] This is to back track everything that has happened the entire week or so. Starting with some homemade bread. I made this bread before I actually ate out with my aunt (the one who’s visiting from Hong Kong) from my earlier post, at Chung Moo Roo but since I don’t really have a real recipe for you to write about except that it’s a very close derivative of Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread from The Bread Bible except that I used whole wheat flour (about 15 – 20% total) to make it healthy. My aunt is somewhat of..

Lunch with My Aunt at Chung Moo Ro

[Translate] I have about an hour to write this post for you before I go to class. Since this lunch I’m writing about now took place last Friday, I might as well tell you about this meal in K-town that I had with my aunt and her son who are visiting from Hong Kong.

No, I’m not..

Sublime desserts at Kyotofu

[Translate] On Tuesday night, I went to Kyotofu with Kim for an evening dessert tasting invitation by one of the co-owners, Nicole Bermensolo. Those of you who have read my daytime dessert flight at Kyotofu a month or so ago, the menu is slightly different during the evenings. I just love how they used the candles to dimly light the room. Here’s part of the evening menu… (more…)

A Day of Baked Goods and Fooding: A Girls' Day Out

[Translate] This is the second, separate post for something that has taken 6 1/2 hours of hanging out with a lot of my girlfriends. This post will be about the fooding portion of the day; the macaron hunt was the previous one. Got it? Good. Sunday morning was the plan that Robyn and I have our macaron hunt/fooding for the past few weeks. The insane thing I told her and all of my friends was that we’re going to meet at Silver Moon Bakery by 9 AM! As preposterous as it is for me to get my behind from Queens..
