Just look at the beautifully lit bar with all those beers on tap!

And their decor LOL. As for food, we got pickled vegetables, fries, and a salad.

House Pickled Vegetables

Is it weird that I don’t like pickled cucumbers, but I like all other pickled vegetables? (I do like regular cucumbers though)

Curry Fries

They’re known for these, but we thought they were meh. The sauce just tasted like plain packaged curry and it made the fries soggy quickly. This was the only food item we didn’t like.

Roasted Root Vegetable Salad

This salad had acorn squash, parsnip, turnip, beet, and arugula with a white balsamic vinaigrette.

And of course, beer was a must 🙂 They also have a 55 oz beer goblet for you big beer drinkers !!

I loved the interior of this place. The brick walls, high ceilings, cool artwork, and lighting gave off a hip and laidback vibe.

They have over 40 beers on tap, served in different temperatures according to the brew. I especially liked how they feature a lots of Belgians, which are my fave! If you like sours, they even have a sour room downstairs.

They also offer snacks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert (you can pass on their risotto though). Next time, I want to try their hot dogs because they have their own sausage company!

If you’re a beer lover, I definitely recommend coming here with a group of friends to try their vast beer selection!!

My favorite boba place in SoCal!

Sweet Potato Smoothie

And no, I am not biased towards this place just because they have sweet potato smoothie. Their sweet potato smoothie actually tastes just like the ones I make at home hehe ^__^

I like how big their menu is and that they provide pictures of almost everything on their website. Not only can you order drinks such as milk tea, iced tea, coffee, and smoothies, but you can also get frozen yogurt, shaved ice, and shaved snow! I have yet to try their desserts, but one thing I can tell you for sure is that their drinks are consistently good. I guarantee you’ll find something you’ll like here!

It may sound strange to you, but I think it’s one of the best drinks evaaaaa. It’s really easy to make too! (more…)

Did You Know?

That Korea has a surplus of sweet potatoes?

You can find them everywhere!! Literally. Everywhere. And I love it ohhh man, do I love it. Even reading the word “sweet potato” on a menu makes me happy, so I was ecstatic to see it in so many places in Seoul!

To give you a look at what Korea has to offer:

Looking at pictures from my trip there a couple years ago makes me wanna go back so badly.. (more…)

Purple Kow

Purple Kow is one of the most famous milk tea places in San Francisco.

However, I believe this place is way overrated. The wait in line to order is super long. The wait to get your drink is even longer. And you think you’d be happy to finally get your drink after an hour wait, but nope, that happiness goes away as soon as you taste it because the drinks aren’t good either (sorry if I’m being too harsh here). I tried several different drinks from this place, hoping to find something I’d like, but all of them confirmed my feelings about this place. (more…)
