Edo Japan (Utah)

My friend and I was at a mall and was hungry so we went to the food court. The only non-chain restaurant was Edo Japan lol. At least I never heard of them in California. As you can see from the picture above, a picture is worth a thousand words. (I like how they had broccoli in them ahahha)


Burma Cafe


Address: 63 Saint Francis Sq, Daly City, CA 94015

This was where I fell in love with tea salad. Sh*t that is good! Not only is it healthy but it is taste awesome. Win-win. I actually really like this place. Everything felt light but we were full. The place looked expensive but everything was priced reasonably, I believe.  

Sam’s Chowder House

1-2-sam-chowder-houseAddress: 4210 Cabrillo Hwy N, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

Went here with my boyfriend before I left for Utah for military training (gone for 2 and a half month). He hear a lot about this place and how their Lobster Rolls are a must try. Yup, definitely a must try! Awesome view too if you sit near the window. (Yeah, I know it’s missing the clam chowder lol I forgot to select it in the frame when I was editing T_T You can kind of see the oyster crackers lol. ‘sigh’ sorry =,[ ) Anways, great place for a casual romantic that does not put a hole in your wallet.

Angelo’s Coal Oven Pizzeria (NYC)

Angelo's Coal Oven Pizzeria

You cannot be in New York and not try a Pizza! Unfortunately, it was not our priority so we did not do any research on where is the best pizza in New York City. This place looked legit and was close to where we were so we went and got to go. (Later we found out that Angelo’s is one of the best coal-over pizzas. Any locals reading this? Can you confirm? Thanks, lol.) The crust was so thin that it tasted kind of like a crispy naan. So good. Maybe we ordered the wrong kind or SF have so many “New York”/coal-oven pizzeria that it wasn’t a WOW to me. Defintely will do our pizza research next time before going to New York City again. Please comment below if you have any recommendations! Thanks! 

Cooperstown Diner (Cooperstown, NY) 


Talk about a legit small town diner that have seat reserved for locals. Two tourists had to move to a different spot because a regular came it and they were sitting in his seat o.O. (FYI, the waitress was the one who said something instead of the regular) There was a kids baseball camp/tournament? (kids from all over the US) was there so it was a little crowded (no need to say we were the ONLY Asians there) The food was good but I think it was the ambiance that really made me feel like, wow so this what a small town feels like (FYI, I was born and raised in SF =P)

Shake Shack (NYC, JFK Airport) 


I wish they have one in SF! It was so freaken good. We went to the one at the airport since we short on time (boo). My sister almost freaken missed the plane for this lol. (Notice the background is the plane’s tray table). We took everything she had and got on the plane first while she waited in line to order. Everyone boarded the plane and like 5 minutes before they close the gate, my sister came. PHEW! It was so worth it until we found out they are located in Las Vegas too (We thought only NY had Shake Shack –_-)
