Kalbi burger patty making in progress. What a beauty. It can be a wallpaper. Kalbi burger is one of my favorite menu item at @mamachosbbq
Forbes named Ichiran JP the ‘best ramen in the world’ & here to confirm it’s pretty much true. I’ll dream of you @ichiranjp
An outdoor space for small bites, local beer, & live music. Such a lovely shared space🥡🍻🎶👫
Just another day in the kitchen.
Who said fried chicken is easy?!! After frying and eating chicken wings for over a month, I think I could hatch an egg and maybe even fly too. Now available as special menu at @mamachosbbq
- KFC & MOO.
Maisen’s motto “providing Tonkatsu that is so tender you could cut it with your chopsticks.” One of the best Tonkatsu of the trip & possibly life 🎌🍛
Yuzu ramen from Afuri 🍋🎌 light & citrusy broth
Earlier this year, I thought about cutting out all red meat from my diet. After working at @mamachosbbq
, the whole idea got thrown out the door. 😂 Must try Oakland & LA kalbi.
Important question: coffee or tea? Leave me a comment with ☕️ or 🍵 so I know who I’m working with here. Clearly I’m semi-obsessed with coffee, but I do like tea and tea lattes at night when I’m winding down. I wanted to share a quick tutorial on how to make a tea latte because it is SO EASY you guys. Swipe to see for yourself - literally ✌️steps.
Pumpkin Spice Green Tea Lattes
4 oz hot water
2 green tea bags
4 oz @manitobamilling
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1. Steep the tea bags. Meanwhile heat milk for 30-40 seconds, add brown sugar & pumpkin pie spice, then froth.
2. Using a spoon to hold back the foam, pour milk on top of tea, then spoon the foam on top to finish.
Disclosure: this is an entry for a recipe contest hosted by Manitoba Milling Co. and I did receive the flax milk for free. #manitobaflax #ambassador
I learned how to make this korean slaw-like radish kimchi (무생채) from our nanny halmoni when my boys were little. Any chance for me to learn Korean from my mom and her generation of women is like gold to me. Seriously.
I had a blast on Monday night teaching a full class at @oaktownspice.
Kimchi making is always fun but star of the night was these mung bean fritters I served as a snack. GF and vegan too if that makes you happy! Get the recipe on my blog. Yum.
A full moon, full belly and a full heart. Happy Chuseok everyone!
As a Chinese person from Beijing, it feels wrong to say that this small Ktown korean-owned old-school no-frills place had the best ZhaJiang noodles (a traditional Beijing dish) I’ve ever had...but it’s true! The noodles here had an amazing chewy texture that I just couldn’t get enough of. 🍜 And that meat sauce...heaven. 🤤
I couldn’t really call myself a ‘chef’ because I thought you need to have proper training and background. Someone told me it’s not how other people perceive you and call you, it’s when you know you can call yourself that. Take the glamour out and it’s all straight up hard labor in the kitchen with very little reward. #RESPECT
to all hustling chefs out there sweating out their passion day in and day out.
Do you guys celebrate Korean thanksgiving Chuseok? It’s this weekend and I’m looking forward to some great food and family time. I’m not a huge fan of Songpyeon, which is traditionally made and eaten during this holiday but I love making Yakbap (aka. Yaksik) using the rice cooker! Check out the recipe on @williamssonoma
blog by search ‘Yakbap’. Happy Chuseok everyone!

I had to take a snap of these while I was peeling a whole case of them at work that turned into some delicious green salsa.
Because nachos are meant to be eaten on the lap. Bulgogi chicken, kimchi, Pico de Gallo, fresh guacamole’s MACHO NACHO. Happy Friday and binge watching Mr. Sunshine on Netflix. Soooo good!
“I wonder what glossy b&w candids they’ll choose for my cook book memoir.”- me, as I’m baking a cake when I should be doing writing homework. (also who wants free treats Denver friends?! PUMPKIN BREAD SZN)
