Ask me anything
*i am not a writer, so my writing and grammar is not the best. I am here to share my love for food :)
After a 3 mile run at The Dish, this place was perfect for lunch! My boyfriend and I ordered three dishes: Spinach Wonton Soup, Walnut Prawns, and the veggie ribs. All very scrumptious! We even got a free bowl of corn and tofu soup!
Spinach Wonton Soup:
it has been years since I had wonton soup and this hit the spot for me! The wonton was full of “meat” and the soup very flavorful.
WOW! I am allergic to shellfish, so this dish was heaven for me. The “prawns” were dipped in a thin batter, not too heavy with the perfect mixture of veganise. The walnuts.. delicious, crunchy, and sweet! I would definitely, always order this dish when I come here.
This was my boyfriend’s pick and he LOVED it (for a meat eater). I am just amazed on how they got the mushroom texture to taste, feel, and look exactly like ribs. The black bean sauce complimented the “ribs” very well.. every bite was tender!
The staff was also very friendly. It seems like a family owned restaurant. I will be coming here whenever I am in town. It’s a perfect meal before grabbing Sprinkles Cupcakes ;)
BEST FRENCH MACARONS EVER.
Every bite I take is mouth-watering heaven with my taste buds dancing with excitement. Everything is just perfect! I love the texture and how each flavor taste like I’m biting into the actual ingredient. I’ve tried most of their flavors, and the only ones that don’t appeal to me are the flowery ones.. but the rest are amazing and deserve to be eaten slowly… making each bite and second worth it. The outer part has a soft crunch to it, then the middle is a creamy filling that bursts into your mouth! All you really need is just one to satisfy a craving or sweet tooth. Trust me… it will make you happy!
These are the flavors that I enjoy:
Pistachio: My absolute favorite. I always get this flavor every visit. It’s full of nutty flavors and taste like real pistachios.
Hazelnut: Yum! It’s like I am biting into a Ferrero Rocher.
Passion Fruit: The orange color is so pretty and has the tangy, sweet fruity flavor.
Dark Chocolate: Rich and chocolatey
Lemon Coconut: This one is a little unique, with an open-face top of marshmallow fluff and coconut shavings on top. A nice little fluffy, crunch when you bite into it.
Lemon: I love the lemony, tangy taste.
Jasmine Green Tea: Some places where I order green tea flavored things, there is no taste but here it has a good amount of matcha that is satisfying
Spiced Macaron (forgot the name): Delicious! They had my friends and I sample it while we were at the shop and I loved how the different spices kicked in your mouth.
Flavors that are so-so:
Orange Blossom: A little hint of orange, but not much flavor to it.
Almond Amaretto: The amaretto is way too strong and overpowering.
Red Velvet: I think I prefer this as a cupcake. There is something missing in the macaron and lacking that “red velvet” kick
Some Champagne Flavor: Ick.. i did not like it at all.. the alcohol content was too strong for me
Overall… this place has delicious macarons that makes you come back for more! They have some seasonal flavors, so there are always new flavors when I come in. You do save some money buy getting the box. The staff is super friendly and always have a smile on their face :)
I love love kale! It’s delicious, healthy, low in calories, and easy to cook! I eat these leafy greens every week and cook fairly quick. The photo shown is not the exact recipe I have listed here, but you can basically add any veggies you want together, and as much as you would like. Here is a simple recipe I usually use when cooking kale:
2 cups kale
2 cups mushroom
2 cups spinach
1 cup tofu
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup of vegetable broth
1. Heat the olive oil in a medium sized pan in high-medium heat
2. Fry the tofu till they turn a light brown, occasionally flipping
3. Set tofu to the side, then saute the mushrooms
4. Add the tofu back in the pan
5. Add the kale and pour the vegetable broth, then stir
6. Cover for about 3-5 minutes until the kale shrinks and turns a dark green
7. Since spinach cook fairly quick, turn down the heat to medium-low and add the spinach till they start to slowly shrink
8. Serve with brown rice and enjoy!
I also decided to make red velvet cookies for Valentine’s Day. As my previous post about the cupcakes changing color, for some reason these cookies turned brown instead of red, and I put the right amount of food coloring the recipe asked for. Here is where I got it from:
They were delicious! I loved the moist and soft texture of the cookie, but it had more of a brownie. Again, everyone enjoyed them! I gave my friends four each in a bag, and they killed them in one sitting! I hope to make these again with the right color of red!
