S.O.G - Your Just Not What I Thought

S.O.G. Desserts

About a month ago, a new dessert spot opened up in Bensonhurst and usually when new restaurants, cafes, desserts, or bakery spots opens I would wait at least a month or so before trying it out. I like to read reviews, hear feedback, and see pictures before I make my decision of trying a new place.

The first time Will and I passed by S.O.G, it was overcrowded with no seats and plus that pungent smell of durian was scaring me out the door. We ended up returning a week later on a Friday night and this time it wasn't too crowded and it didn't smell like durian.

S.O.G is quite small compared to other dessert shops we've been to. There's only a few wooden stools and tables and it's pretty uncomfortable.

Since S.O.G. was new at the time, we didn't really know what to order so we just ordered based on a description that looked good to us -

Brunch at Sunway Cafe Restaurant with Will

It's not often that Will and I go out for breakfast/brunch. There was a Saturday where we needed to run errands in Queens, but before we did we decided to have brunch at Sunway, since we knew they had dim sum 24 hours/7 days a week freshly made and we've only been there for dinner mostly.

The servers will give you a small paper with the name of the dim sum/snacks they have and a pencil for you to check the quantity and what you want as well as the regular menu that has drinks, entrees, appetizers, side dishes, and etc.

We've never had an actual Chinese brunch/dim sm together, so this was kind of nice, fun, and different. We both enjoyed it very much.

We both ordered the Hong Kong style tea & coffee because we both love this drink and it's a pleasant drink to have with dim sum and brunch. 
This is the second time I've seen scallion pancake as a dim sum item. The scallion pancakes had a nic…

Double Date at Las Margaritas

I've heard a lot of great things and have seen a lot of amazing food pictures from Las Margaritas. After our return form Canada, Will and I decided to have dinner with our friends at Las Margaritas and try out a different cuisine for dinner for once.

We came on a Monday evening and the restaurant just happened to be empty with only one or two tables filled. The restaurant was quite spacious, but with minimal decor. The staff was friendly and helpful. As for the food, this is what we had -

First, we were given a complimentary basket of tortilla chips and salsa which was quite tasty.

These are the tacos I ordered, but I only tried the fried pork taco because the lamb taco was rather spicy. I don't remember if Tacos El Bronco had a fried a pork taco, but the one I've had from Las Margaritas was delish! The fried pork was really crispy and had a nice crunch to it and that was the best part.

Unfortunately the rest o…

Dining at The Famous

Happy Belated Labor Day everyone! Will and I just returned from Ocean City, Maryland on Monday and now it's time to catch up on the blog and the rest of life.

Moving along, I'd like to write about a restaurant we tried out with Will's family for dinner at Niagara Falls. We ended up at The Famous because we didn't know exactly what or where to eat, but ended up stumbling upon The Famous.

The atmosphere and decor is similar to the diners in New York and such, but not as big since it is located in the same area as the casino. The staff and our waitress were extremely attentive and pleasant. Our waitress was very on point when it came to refilling drinks, bringing us extra napkins when we needed it and etc.

Moving along, here's what I had and tried -

Everyone at the table ordered the chicken noodle soup, but me (I'm not a huge fan of drinking soups at restaurants). The …
