• Herbal chicken noodle soup, the real deal

    That #herbal noodle #soup

    I love it when menus come with photos of the food. At least it gives me some idea of what I’m getting. But photos can be misleading at best. A photo could look really good, leading you…

  • Celebrating English Language Day

    Apparently it’s William Shakespeare’s birthday today. Well, history has it that he was born and died on the same day. It turns out those aren’t the only coincidences ‘cos, what do you know, today also happens to…

  • The barbecue buffet lunch that was dinner

    I don’t know why we picked a sizzler of a day for a Korean barbecue buffet lunch. Probably not a great idea to pile heat on heat. But considering the watermelons we’ve been gobbling and the fact…

    Happiness is finding a new place to add to the Pearl (Picky Eaters’ Approved Restaurant List). We stumbled on this great little Korean fast food place that passed our taste test with flying colors. Well, stumbled isn’t…

  • All hail, the mighty kale!

    And so here’s my kale story. There was too much talk about kale to ignore. Heard all about it being top spot on the super food pedestal. That was long ago. Kale, avocado, and coconut have since…
