Bourke Street Bakery

Bourke Street Bakery is probably the most popular bakery in Sydney and, coincidentally, they’re located on Bourke St. What are the odds? Their most popular items are the pork and fennel sausage roll and the ginger creme brulee tart so you should probably order one... Continue

Encasa Deli

I was looking for something quick and delicious while trekking towards Circular Quay and this place was pretty highly reviewed on Foursquare. Fun fact: “quay” is pronounced “key”. I didn’t know that, and assumed it was pronounced quay. You know, like the way it’s spelled.... Continue

Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆漿)

If you’ve ever been to Taipei you’re probably familiar with Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆漿). They’re pretty much the most popular breakfast joint in Taiwan and every travel guide you come across will mention them. Come at any reasonable breakfast time and you’ll be in... Continue

After Station Goose Shop (後驛鵝肉店)

I stuck “後驛鵝肉店” into Google translate and it told me this place is called “After Station Goose Shop” in English. I don’t know how accurate that is because I don’t even know what that means, but this place is known for goose so at least... Continue

Taipei Cold Noodles (戴記涼麵)

My cousin knows Taiwan, so when she told me this was the best place to get cold sesame noodles I figured I should probably come here and get cold sesame noodles. This place isn’t in the main touristy part of Taipei, so if you’re unfamiliar... Continue

North Shore Poke Co

If you’re unaware, the biggest food trend in SoCal right now is poke. It makes sense, since it’s basically sushi but easier and cheaper. Why pay for high quality sushi-grade fish when you can buy mediocre to horrible fish and just dress it up with... Continue

Sugar Shack Café

I was in Huntington Beach because my friend had a work conference thing and dragged me along. I had time to kill while she was busy being all adult-like so I decided to get some breakfast. And according to Yelp, if you’re in Huntington Beach... Continue

Doppio Zero Pizzeria

The first thing I’ll say about Doppio Zero Pizzeria is they don’t have a public bathroom. How do I know this? Because I had to take a poop and the woman behind the counter directed me to the city restrooms down the street. City restrooms... Continue

Fat Daddy’s BBQ

We were driving back down to California from Portland and were looking for places to eat in Redding. There aren’t many options in the middle of nowhere, but Fat Daddy’s BBQ turned out to be a pretty decent choice. They recommended the half tri-tip/half pulled... Continue

Carnitas’ Snack Shack

When a restaurant has the word “shack” in its name, I’m never quite sure if it’s actually a shack. In the case of Carnitas Snack Shack in San Diego, it actually is a shack. Sort of. You line up and order at a sidewalk-facing shack,... Continue
