“You just popped in the Kanye West
Get right for the summer workout tape
And ladies if you follow these instructions exactly
You might bear to pull you a rapper, a NBA player
Man, at least a dude wit’ a car
So first of all we gon’ work on the stomach
Nobody wants a little tight a#s!

“A scene from one of my favorite movies of all time, Coming to America – ‘Oh, my goodness, I can’t believe it! This is the greatest day of my life!” – played in my head when I tried their food for the very first time. At last, an above average Indian restaurant that I not only enjoy but would recommend. Their spices tastes authentic, their rice (a key compontent of an Indian dish) is fresh and their sauces compliments their protein (the lamb or cheese). However, their garlic naan wasn’t anything special.“

“Trying to save money on cab fares in a city like San Fran is not only impossible, it’s stupid. The BF and I walked EVERYWHERE, and then kept walking some more. By the end of the fourth day, I felt like we were on a foot expedition to explore uncharted territory. We wanted to venture out for dinner but honestly, my feet hated me and wanted nothing to do with me.  We thought it was a safe bet to check out our hotel’s restaurant – it’s the W Hotel, after all! The ambiance threw me off (there was a DJ), the service was awkward (the waiter asked me if it was my Birthday randomly) and the food was JUST alright."

I went to San Rafael with Kimmie and her ppl (: Omg I accidentally left my phone at home! For two days, I was phone less ); It’s fine, I had a lot of fun! The first night up there, I learned a lot of new card games! The second night up there, we had corndogs before sleeping and I did a little camera whoring and shizz! ahahahhahah FUN FUN FUN! Well Raymis came the next morning and we all went to Japan Town! It was my first time and ohhhh myy… it was pretty (’: I had donuts for breakfast today! Now I’m home and I miss Bay Nguyen.. );


“In a land far, far away (thank goodness) – I used to be an EA to the Co-Founder of an accounting company, who happen to love two things: making me feel like shit and the Washington Capitals. He went to most of their home games at the Verizon Center and frequently asked me to make reservations at Rosa Mexicano for him and his comrades beforehand. I was intrigued by this since there are so many other restaurants at his disposal…Good guac? Margaritas? Tacos? Service? Ambiance? What was it? The answer? Not a damn thing, I thought the food was average and underwhelming for the price while the service lacked attention.”

“Even before you walk through their doors, you’ll be greeted with signs and messages like "No Skinny Bitches”. Indoors, you're loudly silently laughing to yourself with qips like “Eat all you want, you’re already fat” and “Anything worth eating is worth overeating”. They only sell more rice pudding flavors and toppings that you could ever imagine! But aside from the eclectic vibe, the taste of the rice pudding is actually good! It’s creamy with a healthy dose of the named flavor – my almond was nutty and rich. But I’ll be honest with you by admitting that without the crunchy goodness of the coconut shavings, the dish would have been average.

If any of you guys think “why the frick did she tag me in this shit”, it’s because maybe I want to get to know my mutuals better :)

“Sometimes, you get introduced to something that makes you think how you ever went so long without it and becomes the basis of all comparison, like online banking or online shopping or online reservations – basically any and all online functions. But of course , San Francisco had to introduce me to the experience of Dim Sum on-the-go. Now, envision a buffet line with rows and mountains of dim sum, which ranges from steamed dumplings and buns to sticky rice and pastries. You go through the line, point out your selections and smile awkwardly unless you speak Chinese! Lastly, you pay per pieces, which is great for someone like me who like options, and sit your ass down at a small and sticky table!

Delicious Dim Sum | Location: 752 Jackson Street, San Francisco CA | Food: Dim Sum per Pieces, Rating: 4/5, Price: $4.00 | For The Record: hargow, clive dumplings, pork dumplings, leeks dumplings, shumai 

“We, the Coworkers (and a few significant others) hit up Spike Mendelsohn’s pizzeria for a very chill happy hour. Some of you may know Mr. Mendelsohn as the bad-ass from Top Chef’s Season 4 in Chicago. DC Bloggers have both rated his pies highly and negatively, so I definitely had to check it out myself.  For me, it definitely falls below average as it was nothing special for the price per slice.  Also, it was weird that if you wait more than 5 minutes to finish your slice, your cheese would harden. Lastly, note that his burger joint RIGHT next door, Good Stuff Eatery, serves above average meat patties and spectacular milkshakes!"

“Typically, when young yuppies and professionals like myself scream out 'BALLS OUT’, you may want to duck for cover or get any kids out of the room! However, for the CapMac Truck, it just means adding 3 chicken meatballs to their delightful and ingenious concoction!”

CapMac | Location: Food Truck, Washington DC | Food: CapMac N’ Cheese, Rating: 4/5, Price: $8.00 | For The Record: cheddar, pimento, cheez-it crumble, chicken meatballs


“Dare I say that Dim Sum in northern virginia (NOVA) is very standard, having had some banging dumplings and buns in San Fran? Did that come off bougie…arrogrant…too much? At least I got to hang with my dear sorority sister, Jenny Yang, and her daugther for Saturday brunch!”

Golden King | Location: 21800 Towncenter Plaza, Sterling VA| Food: Dim Sum, Rating: 3/5, Price: between $2.25 - $5.50/dish | For The Record: Roasted Duck, Shumai, Shrimp Rice Crepes, Taro Pancakes
