Bay Area Eats Series

Ramen Hajime – 5229 Stevens Creek Blvd, Santa Clara, CA 95051 I’ve ordered from Ramen Hajime a few times and I’ve found that flavor-wise their Kiwami Tonkotsu ramen blows other pork ramen in the South Bay out of the water. It is mouthwatering perfection no exaggeration in my opinion. Perfectly balanced, rich tasting, craving satisfying…

Bay Area Eats Series & Vegan Ice Cream Recommendation

El Salvadorian Food – El Chalateco 955 Saratoga Ave San Jose, CA 95129 I was incredibly happy to discover an El Salvadorian restaurant in the Bay Area. I highly recommend El Chalateco, the restaurant, and open kitchen are exceptionally clean and up to COVID protocol. They also have outdoor dining. The flavor of the food…

Bay Area Eats Series – Takeaway Edition

Fashion Wok We ordered the Spices Satay Beef Wok at the Fashion Wok restaurant for takeout. The prices are incredibly reasonable with a range of about $12-20 total for two people. The ingredients tasted fresh and the flavors were balanced. Additionally, all of the spices and sauces were packed separately from the food so that…

Bay Area Eats: Three Price Ranges

Howth Day Trip & Fish and Chips Review

This morning I visited Howth for the first time with new friends. I recommend taking a trip there from Dublin because it’s a fast journey via DART (train) and supremely scenic. The water is a gorgeous blend of turquoise and dark blue. Together, we walked the Cliff Path Loop and then went to The Bloody…

Fish and Chips Review Series: Part One

This fish and chips series will include reviews of fish and chips restaurants at various price points and locations. I love fish and chips when its done well, and Leo Burdocks at 4 Crown Alley, Temple Bar, Dublin do just that. True, Temple Bar is a tourist area, but the building is so picture-ready! That location’s…

Panama 🇵🇦🇵🇦🇵🇦 Recommendations (En español y ingles)

Panamá tiene comidas muy deliciosos como el arroz con pollo, tamales, carimañolas, empanadas,…
