Adel’s Halal Food

August 24, 2015 Martini: While we were going through lower Manhattan, we saw packs of people waiting in line and eating Halal Guys. I never had a chance to try Halal Guys but Adel’s version of halal food is phenomenal. I asked for both the white and spicy sauce on my plate and the flavor was simply amazing. […] {More...}


July 16, 2015 We were very kindly invited to try DonerG for a media tasting! We haven’t had the opportunity to try them out before, and we’ve never really had turkish food, so we were pretty excited! Our host was the sweetest and kept us company during our media tasting. Thank you, DonerG, for having us as your […] {More...}


July 5, 2015 Pretty good for a fast food type place! For now I would actually give this place 3.5 stars but assuming I will get the chance to try more of their food and enjoy it, my rating would topple over into 4 stars. It’s very clean inside and the decor is rather pleasing. The handrolls are […] {More...}

Samurai Burrito

January 27, 2015 Kimchi: I have gone here enough times to finally say I really dig this place. It looks pretty humble when you first walk in, but the food is good. I’m a fan of “build your own” places and I usually can’t say no so sushi. The combination of the seaweed, sushi rice, raw fish, crunchy […] {More...}

November 30, 2014 Kimchi: We had the pleasure of being invited to Dami Sushi & Izakaya’s complimentary grand opening media tasting. I was very excited for the event, and it did not disappoint! Thank you Edmond and Dami for kindly inviting us! It was a fantastic experience and I’m very grateful I was able to experience all of […] {More...}

Curry House

November 30, 2014 Kimchi: I’ve grown accustomed to Mitsuwa’s katsu curry plates from Miyabi-Tei, which are under $8 dollars, and taste really fantastic. The first time I had Curry House was maybe 6 years ago, and I was not impressed. However, that was before I became a foodie, haha! This time when we went to Curry House, I […] {More...}

Veggie Grill

February 3, 2014 Kimchi: Thanks to the new Veggie Grill phone app, we scored some free food! I really enjoyed my All Hail Kale salad…the kale was such a vibrant and tasty green. It was full of flavor and lots of crunch. The Mexi mini wrap was OK. Its main taste is kind of like a bowl of […] {More...}

La Petite Sourie

January 20, 2014 Kimchi: I’ve gone once to La Petite Sourie for a mocha latte and macarons with a friend, and then bought the Frasier cake & macarons for Martini’s on his birthday. The workers here are all very knowledgeable about what’s on their menu and what pastries they offer. The entire place has a very homie and […] {More...}


October 12, 2013 Kimchi: Martini and I got a free, full sandwich deal for Capriotti’s from the Yelp Monster Mash that we went to. Redeeming our free sandwiches and buying a drink made for a super cheap dinner date, haha. We both got our own sandwiches and swapped half of it so we could try different sandwiches. We […] {More...}

Cooking: Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Cooking, Dessert
September 11, 2013 I love brownies, I love red velvet, and I love cheesecake. So I was super excited to try out this recipe. In a way, I kind of wish the “brownie” part was a bit more moist, but I think it actually balances out the cheesecake part pretty well, so I’ll continue to use this recipe. […] {More...}
