WAHHHH! I feel so bad for neglecting my blog.. I am partially back though. All this time, I have just been occupied with school and laziness.. I still do my daily food- blog reading and foodgawker/ tastespotting browsing though. (Oh!! And I am also watching Top Chef- Just Dessert atm.) It's just that I really havn't been baking, and hence no updates.
However, as you all know.. THANKSGIVING is coming up! That means.. LONG WEEKEND and BAKING! ( : I am looking up potential candidates to bake. Strawberry shortcake? Pie? Chocolate ganache tart? Muffins? Biscuits? So much on my list..
I want a cookbook!
Anyways, here's a post I made a while back about some good& decent food I have been eating in San Diego. Enjoy : P
(1) KalbiQ (Korean BBQ Mobile Truck)
I have been longing to have a first- hand food truck experience after watching The Great Food Truck Race all summer long (NomNom.. :'( ) I never knew what the hype of food truck is all about until I came across KalbiQ.
The sweetness of the beef, the spice of the salsa, the freshness of cilantro and the potato-ness of the fries all came together so well. Who could have thought fries would be such a nice addition to a burrito? (: It was a pleasant surprise.
Bulgogi (Korean marinated barbecued beef) Burrito $5.00 + tax
Bulgogi Taco $1 each + tax on Tuesdays!
-not my favorite. they use corn tortilla .. boo. and look at how small the portion is!
Bulgogi Fries $5.50 + tax
fries> burrito def. you get more for your bucks!
4 stars out of 5.
They need to be more consistent with their serving and food.
I got some over-fried/burnt fries the other day. Disappointed.
(2) Chopstix (Japanese Sushi and Noodle Cafe)
Chicken-Katsu-Don (Deep fried breaded chicken cooked with eggs & a variety of vegetables, on top of rice) $6.95
FAVORITE! This is absolutely the best Japanese rich dish I ever had. I love everything on this dish. The sauce, the perfectly cooked eggs, the sauteed onions.. There's nothing I want to change about it. I just hope they are exactly the same flavor next time I go too.
Crunchy Roll Special $4.95
RRRRRReally good and filling! Good deal. How much can a california roll with crunchy stuff goes wrong? Hehe.
5 stars out of 5
So far, everything I have tried is absolutely da bombbb<3
(3) Royal India Express (Indian Fast Food Cuisine)
-located inside a food court at the mall
Two item plate: Chicken Tikka Masala with Garlic Chicken and Basmati Rice $7.50 + tax
The chicken was a bit dry and the curry is not "spiced" enough. The rice also turns out a bit rough and dry. Ask for extra sauce if you are getting it. I think the reason why the sample tastes better was that it was 80% sauce/curry and 20% rice. What I do like about it is.. it tastes authentic! (:
3 stars out of 5
Also need to work on consistency and portioning. Sauce is key!
(Please excuse the unfocused pictures and whatnot. I am always too hungry to retake them.)
