All Access to Food - Round 2

Barclays Center
620 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11217
212.359.6387

Will and I made a crazy decision again. We went out not only on yet another cold day this month, but during the snowstorm where we were suppose to be hit with 10-14 inches. We went to go watch the Nets vs. Orlando Magic last Tuesday. Yep, it was cold and we were nuts. Don't worry we didn't stay the whole game and we did get home safe.

Any way, we had all access pass again - so you know what that means.

Food from Fatty Cue
Smoked Brisket Banh Mi
Four Cheese Mac-n-Cheese
Brisket Mac-n-Cheese
We've been to Fatty Cue before at Barclays, but decided to revisit because I wanted their amazing mac-n-cheese, specifically the brisket mac-n-cheese. Will ordered the smoked brisket banh mi, but I didn't try it because all I wanted was the brisket mac-n-cheese and absolutely nothing else.

It looks like Fatty Cue changed it up a bit because when I first had their brisket mac-n-cheese, there was no chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese, and scallions. These three new elements do make the mac-n-cheese more inviting and definitely vibrant!

Will ordered the four cheese mac-n-cheese. It was good, but not as good as mine! The brisket mac-n-cheese was amazing! Just the right amount of cheese, brisket was moist, tender, and flavorful. Oh man, it's one of the best mac-n-cheese I've had so far! I wasn't a fan of the scallions though especially since they were raw.

Sicilian Slices from L&B's
Next, we had the famous Sicilian pizza slices from L&B's. They tasted a lot better than the last time I had it at Barclays. Last time I had it the darn pizza was cold. This time it was hot which is good, but in my own opinion doesn't have that original, "this is the real shit" feeling, you know?

Lobster Monster from WFAN Boomer & Carlton Kitchen
We had the lobster monster from  WFAN Boomer & Carlton Kitchen again. We asked for no hot cherry peppers this time. The lobster monster was truly delicious. The lobster meat was meaty and seasoned just perfectly!
Mexican Corn from Habana 
We also visited Habana again for the Mexican Corn. I wasn't too impressed with the Mexican Corn. It didn't taste authentic and didn't appeal to me either.

Red Velvet Custard
For dessert, we had the red velvet custard. It wasn't anything too special in my opinion.

Will we ever go to a basketball game again during the freezing weather or when it snows like cats and dogs? I'm not sure, but even if we do it's not pleasant as it is in the Spring or Fall. Most of the food we had was also good.

Ramen Quest: Santouka Ramen

Mitsuwa Market Place
595 River Road Edgewater, NJ 07020
201.941.1004

So, there's a little ramen shop situated inside Mitsuwa in Edgewater, New Jersey that's called Santouka Ramen. It's actually the very first place I had my first ever taste of real, legit ramen!

On our (me & Will) most recent visits to Mitsuwa, we've been coming to Santouka for dinner. I thought the line for Santouka during noon time was nuts, but it's nuts during the evening hours too. Will waited on line for almost 15-20 minutes and the wait for our ramen was 20-25 minutes.

Toroniku Ramen
Will ordered the Toroniku-Ramen which is one of Santouka's signature ramen. The toppings are suppose to be served separately, but I think because it closes at 9PM, they saved time by leaving the toppings with the ramen.

The cha-shu that was in the Toroniku-Ramen is a simmered pork cheek meat. Very rich flavor and tender! I actually really enjoyed the Toroniku-Ramen because it was savory, rich with flavor, and harmonious!

Sake Ikura Rice Bowl
Since Will ordered a meal set, it came along with a Sake Ikura Rice Bowl which is really just bits of salmon and caviar served over Japanese white rice. The rice isn't the same consistency like Chinese or American rice. Japanese rice is a slightly stickier.

I've never had the sake ikura rice bowl, but it was really good! We mixed the salmon and caviar really well with the rice and it was delicious. There was no seasoning, salt, or sweetness to it. It had a slight buttery taste to it. So nice that even with slightly or no seasoning, a bowl of rice with salmon and caviar is still oh-so-yummy!

Miso Ramen
I decided to go with something so original, something I've had before - Miso Ramen. The miso ramen broth is made from a mixture of pork broth and a rich miso paste. The Miso Ramen sure was a lot saltier than before. The noodles felt a little overcooked. I wasn't a complete fan of the miso ramen.

Overall, I enjoyed our casual dining experience at Mitsuwa and with Santouka ramen. Will and I tend to always come back to Santouka ramen a lot, maybe it's time to change it up a bit. Since I didn't really enjoy my miso ramen and it was too salty, we're actually taking a ramen break for now even though ramen is one of the best food to have in this frigid weather.

Restaurant Review: Chat-n-Chew

Chat-n-Chew
10 East 16th Street New York, NY 10003
212.243.1616

Earlier this month, I had brunch with one of my best friends Diane and we did a little shopping. Since we were in the Union Square area, I thought we could revisit a restaurant I haven't been to in the longest time.

Chat-n-Chew sure looks a lot roomier and has more tables/seating since I have last been here. The restaurant smelled extremely musty and the wooden floors were dirty and old. Restrooms weren't properly maintained. When we arrived, the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. There was only three or four tables filled with customers.

Our waitress was friendly and so was the staff. We ordered our food and within 10 minutes it arrived.

Eat It & Beat It! Breakfast Special 
This is one of my best friend Diane. She ordered the Eat It & Beat! Breakfast Special with a hand-cut smoked bacon ($11.00). It was a very simple breakfast - two eggs (any style), home fries, and toast. I love how full Diane's dish was and it looks like she got what she paid for.

Fresh Mushroom and Thyme Omelette 
I had my eyes on the Fresh Mushroom and Thyme Omelette ($10.50) when I saw it on the menu so that's what I decided on for brunch. Yep, that's how my plate looked like when it arrived on our table. The portion size was so small and for $10.50, I felt I was ripped off. The omelette was delicious, but very small in size. The homefries were decent.

I was a little disappointed this time especially with the portion size and the price. I've been to many brunch restaurants and diners the past 2-3 years and I've never had any issues with restaurants and the portion size before until now. In addition, the musty smell lingering in the air didn't help our brunch experience either. I was so relieved when Diane and I exited the restaurant because we had fresh air finally.

 Based on the size of the food and the horrible moldy smell, I don't think I will be back to Chat-n-Chew for a long time. It's just not as good as it used to be.

3rd Year Anniversary Dinner at Basta Pasta

Basta Pasta
37 West 17th Street New York, NY 10011
212.366.0888

On January 7th, 2014 which was possibly the coldest day of the year, Will and I celebrated our third year anniversary at Basta Pasta. I was excited because I have been wanting to come to this restaurant for a long time since I've heard a lot of good things about it.

I envisioned the restaurant to be dim and elegant, but it was bright, warm, and modern. I love the nice, open kitchen because you can see all the chefs working and cooking. I also liked how when we arrived, a gentleman took our coats to hang in the back so we can eat more comfortably.

Sparkling Water
We should have gotten a little bubbly to celebrate, but instead we had sparkling water from Italy.
Bread & Breadsticks
I like the assortment of bread and breadsticks we received. They were all different textures, sizes, and taste. The plate of the two slices of bread was complimentary and they were spread with blue cheese. I'm really not a fan of blue cheese because of the smell and looks, but the slice of bread was actually not bad.

Insalata D'anatra
We started off with an appetizer known as Insalata D'anatra which is cherrywood-smoked sliced duck breast, watercress, and arugula. Will and I got our own plates which was a bit of a shock because I thought it was going to be one plate for us to share.

I love how every piece of food was plated neatly and nicely. I liked the smokey taste of the duck breast and it was perfectly sliced, but a little chewy. I've never had duck like this before so this was a different experience for me. There was a bit of acidity in the salad as I ate the arugula and watercress.

Ravioli Di Vitello, Proscuitto E Mozzarella
Will ordered the Ravioli Di Vitello, Proscuitto E Mozzarella which is homemade ravioli with veal, proscuitto, mozzarella with fresh tomatoes, and parmesan sauce. Will wasn't too excited with his dish because the taste was a little off and din't really appeal to him. I tried the ravioli and I thought it was mediocre. It was certainly not the best ravioli I've had.

Crespelle Con Funghi E Ricotta
As for myself, I had the Crespelle Con Funghi E Ricotta which is homemade silk handkerchief pasta, mixed mushrooms, lemon zest, and ricotta cheese. I've never had pasta like this before. This dish had a nice and light flavor to it. I really liked the assortment of mushrooms, but again I felt this dish was mediocre. It didn't quite "wow" me.

Next, we decided to order two desserts to share. I was crossing my fingers and hoped that the dessert wouldn't disappoint me like the entrees did.

Almond Flan
Will ordered the Almond Flan. I liked he picked a very light dessert because we were somewhat stuffed from the appetizer, bread, breadsticks, and our entrees. The almond flan wasn't too sweet which was perfect, but couldn't really taste the almond flavor much.

Vulcano
Finally, my dessert! I ordered the vulcano which is by far the damn, best dessert I've had so far! There's melting, luscious chocolate inside the warm cocoa sponge cake, served with vanilla gelato and fresh fruit.
I've had warm cocoa sponge cake with melted chocolate before, but nothing compare to this.


Ain't that sexy? Moving along, this dessert was really top notch! The warm sponge cake and melted chocolate was soft, velvety, and as I said before: luscious and warm! I never had vanilla gelato, but it was delicious and liked the bits of fruits too. I really and truly enjoyed my dessert.

In my opinion, I wasn't 100% thrilled with Basta Pasta. I mean I've heard a lot of great things about it, but maybe it's just a little overrated. i have been waiting and waiting to try this restaurant out and I am glad I did, but like I said the food was mediocre, certainly didn't make us smile or "wow" us afterwards.I didn't love Basta Pasta nor did I hate it. Will and I probably will not be back here anytime in the near future. We just think we've been to better Italian restaurants.

Ramen Takumi - I Really Wanted to Like You This Time, But Couldn't

Ramen Takumi
1 University Place New York, NY 10003
212.229.2752

Ramen Takumi used to be one of my favorite go-to spots for a good bowl of ramen until my recent visit last year.

I was told by my sister that Ramen Takumi moved to a new and bigger location, so one chilly Saturday evening - Will, three of our friends, and I popped in for a visit and to have their ramen for dinner.

It's great that the new location is on a corner because it will attract a lot more customers and it's close to NYU, so a lot of students would be coming here. The space is a lot bigger and roomier for sure. There's a lot more tables and seating area than the original location. However, the vibe didn't feel as cozy as the original location. While we were making our way to our table, there was this heavy deep-fried, artery-clogging scent lingering in the restaurant - what a turn off! It made my hair stink.

The menu expanded. There's a lot more options for appetizers and they even have sushi now. We all ordered a ramen set that came with a small plate of gyoza. They have three types of gyoza: shrimp, pork, and vegeterian.

Gyoza
Will and I ordered the pork and vegeterian gyozas. I liked the pork gyoza more than the vegeterian one, because the vegeterian one was bland whereas the pork in the pork gyoza was seasoned just right and the pork gyoza is tastier.

Shio Ramen
I ordered the Shio Ramen which was just a standard ramen. My ramen was mediocre, didn't really "wow" me liked it used to. It didn't feel or taste as good as it used to be. Although, there was one thing that did impress me - the egg was done perfectly with a slightly runny yolk.

Curry Ramen
Will ordered the Curry Ramen and it was great! Very flavorful curry aroma and the best part is that it wasn't spicy at all, but it wasn't as great as it used to be. In my opinion, it felt there was a missing touch to it, but can't quite put my finger on it.

So the experience at Ramen Takumi wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. The food felt like it lacked just a tad bit of flavor and heart in the food. We weren't "wow'ed" like we used to be. I don't know if we'll  be back since I wasn't too fond of my ramen and because of that deep-fried, disgusting scent in the air. They definitely need to improve their ventilation system.

A Bite of Thanksgiving in December

Earl Of Sandwiches
1750 E Buena Vista Dr Orlando, FL 32830

So, Will and I recently returned with his family from Florida and on our last day in Orlando, we stopped by Downtown Disney. A friend of mine recommended us to try Earl of Sandwiches, so we did.

It reminds me of Potbelly because they are similar in product and pricing. First, you order what you want and then you pay for your order, and are given a buzzer and when your food is ready, the device would buzz.



At first I wanted to try the Hawaiian BBQ Sandwich because it's a combination of grilled chicken, ham, Swiss, pineapple, and sweet and delicious Hawaiian barbecue sauce. However, I decided on something else, something much more tastier.

Holiday Turkey
The description of the Holiday Turkey sandwich sounded so tempting and I gave into the temptation and ordered it. The Holiday Turkey had the basic foods/ingredients you would eat on Thanksgiving - turkey, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce. The sandwich only cost: $5.99! Yep, only $5.99. This was by far the cheapest lunch I've had since staying at Disney for 5-7 days. 

Deliciousness
This was by far the BEST sandwich I've ever had! The bread was crunchy and moist. The turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, and stuffing was excellent! I've never tasted such a delicious sandwich before. Every bite of it was absolutely heaven and a reminder of Thanksgiving! I guess the better phrase I should use was that this sandwich was out of this world! 

I dream about this sandwich now because it was that good. I recently learned that there is an Earl of Sandwiches in New York City, and I am looking forward to trying it out with Will. If and when we do try it out, I can guarantee you we will be writing about our experience and amazing sandwiches we will have.

Catching Up and Double Date Brunch at The Smith

The Smith
55 3rd Avenue New York, NY 10003
212.420.9800

After trying out Jane for our friend Alex's birthday brunch, I knew instantly that I would want to try Jane's sister restaurant The Smith too. Luckily last month Alex, Samantha, Will, and I met for brunch at The Smith.

Unfortunately, we picked a chaotic day to do it because you see, the day we chose was December 14, 2013 and on this day, SantaCon took place and a tremendous amount of snow hit The Big Apple, but we managed to have a successful and great brunch together. Luckily, Sam made reservations ahead of time and we were seated after arriving for ten minutes.

The ambiance and decor is different from Jane. It's slightly dimmer, crowded, and not as cozy as Jane.

 Cucumber Ginger Ale
We started off with drinks. I ordered one of their housemade sodas: cucumber ginger ale. The cucumber ginger ale is different, but a good different. I really liked my drink especially because it had slices of lime which made the cucumber ginger ale super refreshing.

Beer Battered String Beans with Ranch Sauce
We wanted to order an appetizer first, but wasn't sure what. The customers next to us ordered the beer battered string beans with ranch sauce and it looked and smelled amazing, so we decided to order it too. The beer battered string beans was delicious. Perfectly fried, tasty, crunchy, and addictive! I highly recommend this appetizer.

Vanilla Bean French Toast & Chicken Sausage
Will ordered the vanilla bean french toast and with a side of the chicken sausage. Jane also has the vanilla bean french toast as well. It's been a while since I've had a bite of french toast, so I was actually excited to try a bit of Will's french toast. All I can say is sweet, moist, sponge-like deliciousness! The chicken sausage was tasty as well.

One Yolk Omelette 
Our friend Alex ordered the one yolk omelette which is basically an omelette smothered with sun-dried tomatoes, ricotta cheese, and basil. It didn't taste too special to me. It tasted just like a pizza except in an omelette form.

Potato Waffle Benedict
Our friend Samantha ordered the potato waffle Benedict. According to Yelp, the potato waffle Benedict is a popular menu item, so she listened to my suggestion and ordered it. The potato waffle Benedict looked great! The potato waffle Benedict was topped off with a creamed spinach sauce. Samantha ordered the chicken sausage on the side too.

Will and I tried the potato waffle Benedict and it delicious! Although, I would have preferred a tomato-based sauce or the classic Hollandaise sauce. The egg was cooked just right and runny and the potato waffle was crunchy and crispy.

Croaker
I ordered the croaker because it sounded interesting. The croaker consists of different layers - sunny up eggs, smoked ham, gruyere cheese - sitting on top of a sourdough bread. I wasn't too thrilled with my order, it tasted alright, but didn't really appeal to me too much.

So after all this food, we still wanted dessert. We chose two desserts to share.

S'mores Bread Pudding
Our friend Samantha and Alex ordered the s'mores bread pudding which looked great! It's made with a chocolate brioche bread, pudding, graham cracker, homemade marshmallow, and honey anglaise. The s'more bread pudding was so moist, delicious, and absolutely chocolatey and marshmallow goodness!

Pumpkin Pie in a Jar
Will and I ordered the Pumpkin Pie in a Jar and oh my goodness, It was literally, and I do mean literally one of the best desserts I've ever had! It looked great and tasted great. It's made up of pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry gelee, pecan brittle, and sugared cranberries. The dessert was creamy, delicious, a little sweet, and a little tart. I really and truly enjoyed this dessert.

All in all, our double date brunch was great! We had a good time trying different foods and catching up with our friends. The food at The Smith was great and I would like to come back in the future to try out their brunch menu again and their delicious desserts.

Restaurant Review: BK Sushi

BK Sushi
6916 18th Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11204
718.837.8878

A friend of mine told me that a new All-You-Can-Eat sushi spot was opening up in our neighborhood and we agreed to try it out when it opened. Although, I typically don't like to try restaurants after it's grand opening, I became very tempted to try it because a few of my friends and I are sushi nuts and so we gave in.

We went on a Saturday evening and I had made early reservations so we would get a table without a long wait. When we arrived at the time of our reservation, they didn't have a table ready for us and we had to wait about 10 minutes.

We ordered a lot of sushi and unfortunately, I don't remember all of the names of the sushi rolls.

Seaweed Salad
Seaweed salad is a very basic, Japanese salad. It was crunchy, tasty, nothing too special. The portion size for the salad was a little too small.

Sushi Rolls
These were a few plates of the sushi rolls we ordered. Some of them were special rolls and some of them were just basic rolls. They all tasted fine, except the rice felt a little hard.

Sushi & Sashimi
I didn't try the sashimi since I am not a huge fan of raw fish. The tuna looked oddly pink. The Philadelphia roll (in first picture on top) looked great, but it's different. I've never had it fried so this was definitely a different experience. I didn't like that they put a whole chunk of cream cheese in the roll.

Crab Meat Ravioli
I wanted to try the crab meat ravioli, but sad to say it wasn't great or what I anticipated for it to be. I didn't like that they added the spicy mayo. I've heard a lot of good things about the crab meat ravioli, but with the spicyness of the mayo, it was a bummer I couldn't enjoy or try it.

In my opinion, I felt the sushi was mediocre. The salmon and chicken teriyaki we had ordered earlier in our dinner was delicious and so was the kani salad. We ordered three rounds of food and the service was a little slow.

I understand BK sushi is relatively new and restaurants can be slow when they first open, but they need to be able to keep up with orders especially when there's a lot of customers.

Will I be back? Maybe not. I forgot to mention that the price for dinner is a little expensive: $18.95. You can really get amazing and better quality food at Sake (another All-You-Can-Eat sushi restaurant) located in the neighborhood.

The Best Things We Ever Ate in 2013

Happy New Year to our fellow foodies!

2013 was a great year and I had the opportunity to try a lot of different foods and drinks with my boyfriend, my family, and friends. It's been a true bonding experience and unforgettable and exploding flavors.

I would like to share with you the top and best of 13 things we've eaten in 2013 and where you can find it.

Please note: These food/dishes aren't in a specific order.

Country Ham Biscuit from Egg
Country Ham Biscuit ($9.00) from Egg - Earlier this year, Will and I had a double date brunch with our friends Samantha and Alex. I've never had grits before, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. At first it looked almost like mashed potatoes. I really enjoyed the grits. It was soft in texture and the amount of cheese that was used was perfect! It was very filling and truly tasty.

Chocolate Macaron from Dana's Bakery
Chocolate Macaron from Dana's Bakery - One of my besties Diane works at Dana's Bakery and during the Summer, she presented me with some macarons she made for Will and I. I've had macarons before, but they weren't as delicious as the one I had from Dana's Bakery. It' sweet and you can really taste the love that was put into the macaron.

Gyoza from Ganso
Gyoza ($7.00) from Ganso - Every time Will and I order ramen, we must have gyoza as an appetizer. I've never seen gyoza served like this before, but it's nice and unique. It's extra crunchy. The gyoza was juicy and delish.
Braised Pork Belly Buns from Bite Size Kitchen
Braised Pork Belly Buns from Bite Size Kitchen - Once in a while, I do love a succulent and juicy braised pork belly bun. These were one of the best buns I've had. They're slightly sweet from the hoisin sauce and the buns are packed with amazing flavors.

Mix Fruit with Grass Jelly from Munchies Cafe
Mix Fruit with Grass Jelly ($4.75) from Munchies Cafe - I think you know by now that I am a huge fan of grass jelly. This dessert is filled with fresh fruits and grass jelly with a little coconut milk. It's colorful, vibrant, tasty, and refreshing!

Beer Battered String Beans from The Smith
Beer Battered String Beans ($10.00) from The Smith - Will and I had a double date brunch with our friends Samantha and Alex at The Smith recently. We saw the table next to us had the beer battered string beans with ranch sauce as an appetizer and it looked amazing, so we ordered it. Oh my goodness! These were absolutely, insanely delicious. They were so addicting!

Benedict Jane from Jane
Benedict Jane ($17.00) from Jane - For our friend Alex's birthday, we went to Jane for a birthday brunch with friends. According to Yelp reviews, the Benedict Jane seemed to be a popular item so Will ordered it. We've never had a Benedict like this before and it was truly an amazing dish!

I tried one of the Benedict Jane and it was great. Benedict Jane is unique because it's poached eggs covered with a rich tarragon Hollandaise sauce sitting on top of a moist, delicious crab and crawfish cakes.

Beef Goulash with Spatzle from Cafe Katja
Beef Goulash with Spatzle from Cafe Katja - I've been itching to try German food last year and according to my co-worker, beef goulash with spatzle is a traditional German dish. Will and I went on another double date dinner with our friends Alex and Samantha at Cafe Katja over the summer.

The beef goulash was amazingly moist, flavorful, and tender. It was a little spicy, but bearable. The spatzle was a little doughy and super filling.

Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple Butter from Clinton St. Baking Co
Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple Butter ($14.00) from Clinton St. Baking Company & Restaurant - I've never really liked pancakes, until last year. Will and I had a birthday brunch with our good friend Jack and his cousin Matt over the summer at Clinton St.

I heard their buttermilk pancakes was a popular menu item, so we all ordered to share. It was the most fluffiest pancake ever. I love how the blueberries was round, plump, and sweet. This was by far the best pancakes I've had so far!

Assorted Sushi from Sake
Assorted Sushi from Sake - There's a sushi restaurant in my neighborhood that everyone raves about It's an All-You-Can-Eat sushi restaurant and possibly one of the best I have been to. They have a variety of sushi rolls and appetizers for you to choose from. Their sushi is made fresh and on my most recent visit (two months ago), their sushi was amazing and truly delicious.

Takoyaki from Yakitori Boy

Takoyaki ($6.00 ) from Yakitori Boy - Earlier last year - my boyfriend, family, and I went to Yakitori Boy for dinner. I absolutely love takoyaki and we literally ordered like three dishes of takoyaki. The takoyaki was sprinkled with bonito flakes and dressed with Japanese mayonaise and special sauce.

The takoyaki was rich, crispy, and crunchy goodness on the outside and rich creaminess on the inside. This was one of the BEST takoyaki I've ever had and I've had a lot.

Pumpkin Pie in a Jar from The Smith
Pumpkin Pie in a Jar ($8.00) from The Smith - After having brunch with our friends Samantha and Alex at The Smith, we wanted dessert. I picked the Pumpkin Pie in a Jar and oh man, it was one of the best desserts I've ever had. First off, I love almost any dessert/food with pumpkin flavor or just pumpkin in it.

The pumpkin pie in a jar consisted of pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry gelee, pecan brittle, and sugared cranberries. The dessert was fantastic! Smooth, creamy, delicious, a little sweet, a little tart, a little crunchy all mixed inside.

Holiday Turkey from Earl of Sandwich
Holiday Turkey ($5.99) from Earl of Sandwich - My friend Christine recommended Earl of Sandwich located inside Downtown Disney for lunch. Will and I were recently down in Florida with our family and we were at Downtown Disney on New Year's Eve and we found Earl of Sandwich.

There was a lot of options for lunch, but I decided on the holiday turkey sandwich and it was absolutely heaven! It felt like Thanksgiving all over again. It was crunchy, savory, moist, and phenomenal! This was possibly quite the best sandwich I've had so far and at a cheap price.

I apologize for the fact we did not have this post up earlier. It was a hard decision to come to when thinking about the best dishes and food we've had this year. We hope you found this post to be helpful and that you will try out some of these wonderful food.

Cheers to 2014 and tasty food adventures for the new year!
