Destination Miami: Oriente

Another night at along the Ocean Drive, we came across the Oriente. This restaurant is right on the first floor of the Cardozo Hotel, on 1300 Ocean Drive. The restaurant and the hotel are both owned by the famous Gloria and Emilio Estefan (along with many other things they own in Miami). What caught our...

Breakfast at the Royal Palm Hotel, Miami

We stayed at the Royal Palm Hotel, located on 1545 Collins Avenue. It was a great spot, since it was at the center of a lot of local attractions. It’s right next to the beach for one. Inside this hotel, they have the Britto Restaurant. I believe they’re known for their Italian seafood cuisine. So...

Destination Miami: Rumba Palace

The lady at the front desk also suggested Ocean Drive as a good area to dine at. Ocean Drive runs along the beach and is filled with tons of hotels, restaurants, and bars, most of which are pretty famous. For example, there’s the Clevelander. It’s a hotel, a bar, and a crazy hot spot, known...

Destination Miami: Sushi Siam

Sushi Siam (located on 647 Lincoln Road) It was our second night in Miami, and we decided to check out another restaurant on Lincoln Road. Sushi Siam. Just as the name of the restaurant suggested, it offered a combination of Japanese and Thai food. There was a lot of outdoor seating. Peeking in through the...

Destination Miami: Sushi Samba

It was my first night at Miami. I was tired, grouchy and hungry when I arrived at the Miami International Airport. My flight was delayed for a lovely 2 hours and by the time I got off the plane the sun was already down. Once we got to South Beach, we checked into the hotel,...

Destination Chicago: Ken Kee Restaurant

Ken Kee Restaurant, a small restaurant located in Chinatown with lots of yummy Cantonese and Hong Kong style dishes on their menu. Two things that caught my eye! 1. Cheap prices! 2. Authentic Cantonese fast food (not the Americanized ones you find with names like “Happy Dragon Lucky Chinese restaurant”)! The wait was long (well,...

Destination Chicago: Cozy Noodles

Me – “Hi, I was wondering if you could help me with some directions?” Store clerk – “Sure.” Me – “Do you know how to get to this Thai restaurant with the sewing machines and lots of toys?” Store clerk – “Of course! Go down this road and you’ll see it in a few blocks...

Destination Chicago: Tank Noodles

Right off the Argyle station stop on the red-line of the Chicago CTA, we come across what is known as New Chinatown (well, it’s more like Vietnamese-town, really). I love Vietnamese food. We were hungry, and there were so many Vietnamese restaurants on that street. But there… at the corner of Argyle and Broadway, we...

LookyTasty: The Beginning

Lately, I’ve been traveling quite a lot. Traveling means that you’ll probably not be cooking and will end up eating at quite a few restaurants. Whenever I go out to eat, I always liked taking photos of the dishes that I order. I think it has something to do with capturing the moment, before I...
