Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

Margherita Pizza

Margherita

They only make 73 of this World Pizza Cup winner a day! They make the dough by hand using caputo red flour and then proof them in napoletana wood boxes. For the toppings, they use san marzano tomatoes, sea salt, mozzarella, basil, and extra virgin olive oil.

Balsamic Pizza

Cal Italia

This pizza features four cheeses: asiago, mozzarella, gorgonzola, and parmesan. Croation sweet fig jam is distributed, topped with prosciutto, and then drizzled with a balsamic reduction, resulting in a wonderful sweet and salty combination. This was a gold medal winner on Food Network Pizza Champions Challenge!

A personalized pizza for ~8?

With unlimited toppings of your choice?

Andd it’s thin crust? Sounds great to me!

Blaze is like Chipotle or Subway but for pizza. However, with the inconsistency in the freshness of their ingredients, I say this place is A-OK. The first time I tried it, the dough was a bit too chewy and all the toppings slid off, so you might wanna ask your pizza to be extra crispy!

Blue Line Pizza

This week was quite busy… in the sense of assignments, papers, meetings, and rain. Yup, no fun.

Did you all see how bad the weather was in the bay yesterday?

All those clouds gradually traveled down to SB last night and flooded my area too. I had neverrr seen it rain so much before! Winds went up to 40mph, so car alarms were randomly ringing and trees were falling in my neighborhood and on campus all night. Apparently, the rain went up to people’s knees, so some people took advantage of the weather and went kayaking in the streets LOL. As they say, when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade, right?

But the thing is, I’m not a rain person. Not. At. All. Rainy weather dampens my mood and makes life seem depressing and physically more difficult (walking, driving, etc). I just can’t make lemonade out of it! This week was already stressful in terms of school, so imagine my delight when it started raining here.

The only time I like it is when I’m dry and warm, indoors and in bed, with lots of blankets, hot tea/coffee, and Netflix. Ooh with some noodle soup too. Add some freshly baked sweet potatoes and brownies to all of that, and I’m in heaven~

It rained a little this morning, but it’s been gone for the day AND I’ve turned in all of my assignments so now I can finally say, HAPPY FRIDAYYY!!

Winter break is sooooo close, I can almost taste the cheese and cornmeal crust of my favorite pizza place in the bay…

Gochi Japanese Fusion Tapas

For those of you who don’t know, I am a HUGE Yelp addict. Reading reviews for all sorts of places, looking at pictures of food, and searching for hidden gems is one of my hobbies. I currently have 920 bookmarks.. yes, I might have a slight problem LOL. Every few months, I go through all of them to delete ones that don’t interest me anymore, but I end up finding other places so they keep adding up more and more. As much as I love to read other people’s reviews though, I rarely ever write one on the site myself. Today, I looked at my drafts for the first time in a while and found this one that I had basically completed but never uploaded:

The first time I ever tried beef tongue was here at Gochi. This braised beef tongue was served with mashed potato butter gravy. Fast forward a little over two years to this day, and their beef tongue is still the only one I have actually enjoyed because it tasted like regular meat (with none of the chewiness that comes with tongue).  (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:
