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. The reason why I’m in the city on a Friday afternoon, which normally never happens since I don’t have classes on Friday and it’s my (so called) Spring Break, it’s because my aunt wanted to see the Macy’s Flower Show in Herald Square. 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.

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.

Donut Debate: Bouchon Bakery v. Caffe Falai

[Translate] There had been a recent quarrel about finding a good donut in New York City. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the Doughnut Plant and if memory serves me well, it was inspiring that Mark Isreal (the guy who owns and created the place) created innovative, gourmetized flavors for a donut. But I didn’t like the texture too well. It was too chewy, a bit dense, and leathery. But that’s my opinion… As most of you know, I frequent Bouchon Bakery and Caffe Falai pretty often as of recent. Last time when I visited Caffe Falai..
