the Goodwich

VEGAS. What does that make you think of?
Clubs, casinos, buffets, Fat Tuesdays, Earl’s, etc… am I right?

I honestly don’t think the buffets are worth it at Vegas, except Studio B. And the only thing good from Earl’s is their chipotle chicken avocado sandwich, but it’s given me tummy aches and indigestion all three times I’ve had it (from their bread or just something they use in their sandwich sad face). Fat Tuesdays are a yes though, especially the peach bellini hehe.

But I digress. Did you know some of the best food you can find in Vegas is located off the strip (like Studio B and Tacos El Gordo)? Correction: MOST of the best food is off the strip.

Next time you find yourself in Vegas, tell Earl’s to move aside because there’s a muuuch better sandwich place a short drive away. Just head downtown towards the Goodwich – a shack that’s located in a parking lot across a strip club!

Say Hi

TO MY FRIEND NAWA!!

I can’t believe I didn’t post this sooner, but a friend made my dream of having a forever-lasting sweet potato come true earlier this year! It’s of my absolute favorite kind, so you can see where she got her name from (Okinawa).

This unexpected and thoughtful gift is easily one of the best things I’ve ever received ^____^ Do any of you have food buddies? Feel free to share below!

Boba Time

My favorite boba place in SoCal!

Sweet Potato Smoothie

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!

Multiple locations in Socal

Little Green Cyclo

I can’t say anything about this Vietnamese food truck’s main menu items (like their banh mi and garlic noodles) because I haven’t tried them, but I recommend getting their tater tots:

Sweet Potato Tater Tots w/ Spicy Mango Ketchup

I know you’re saying in that head of yours ‘it woulddd be sweet potato...’
Don’t lie.

I didn’t make this post just to share my love for them.

Orrrr did I?
That..
You will never know hehe.

Patbingsoo

Patbingsoo is a popular dessert eaten in Korea during the summer. Although the weather’s cold now since fall is here, I love to have it anytime I want something refreshing throughout the year!

Red Bean Shaved Ice

Red Bean Shaved Ice

What started off as simply shaved ice and sweetened azuki beans (‘pat’), the dessert has evolved into a fancy dish that now includes various toppings such as:

  • ice cream
  • condensed milk
  • fresh fruit
  • nuts
  • cereal
  • rice cake

It’s like a luxurious snowcone, but in a bowl (which makes it even better because there’s no need to worry about anything melting and dripping anywhere)!
