Japanese Restaurant Kintaro Review (Kauai, Hawaii)

  While picking up our rental car at Kauai’s Lihue Airport, we asked the friendly employee with “aloha spirit” where we should dine for dinner. He recommended that we shouldn’t miss Restaurant Kintaro, a Japanese restaurant on the way to our hotel, the Sheraton Kauai in Poipu. Located on the main Kuhio Highway, Kintaro wasn’t […]

Broken Yolk Review – Gaslamp (San Diego, CA)

  Have you ever watched the TV show Man v. Food? You should, it’s awesome – and the host, Adam Richman, is such a likeable, funny guy. (Incidentally, we visited another of Adam’s stops – The Crab Pot in Seattle). Anyway, he visited this location and took their Broken Yolk Café Special “for the iron […]

Brockton Villa Review – La Jolla (San Diego, CA)

We ate a lot during our trip to San Diego, and luckily most of our stops were hits! Another hit was Brockton Villa, where we met friends of ours who we know from living in South Korea. It’s hard not to thoroughly enjoy yourself at this romantic seaside restaurant, overlooking the beautiful La Jolla Cove. […]

Chipotle Mexican Grill – Northgate (Seattle, WA)

We usually try and hit up as many Chipotles as possible during our trips to the States (yeah, we’re crazy like that). Their Northgate Mall location is superb – consistent food (large portions, great quality) and excellent service (friendly, quick, and efficient). Chipotle Mexican Grill only uses the freshest of ingredients, so none of its […]

Sweet Iron Waffles Review (Seattle, WA)

We all know my love for waffles – as seen here in Vancouver,  Richmond, and  Arizona. So what do we do when we’re kickin’ it in Seattle? Eat waffles of course! As per usual, when traveling to the states, we consult both Urbanspoon and Yelp to see where trustworthy locals recommend eating. One of the […]

In-N-Out Burger Review (Chandler, Arizona)

Why is In-N-Out so popular in Arizona? The reason is they keep their menu simple: No salads or fish or chicken products like other fast food joints, just burgers prepared to order, fries and beverages. In-N-Out is famous for its “Secret Menu”, unadvertised variations on its burgers that are based on customer preferences, such as […]

Waffle House Review (Apache Junction, Arizona)

My parents own a little place just outside of Phoenix, AZ, where they escape the damp and dreary Vancouver Island winters. We often spend holidays with them, and on this particular visit I was really keen on trying a Waffle House. I assume you’re aware of my love for all things breakfast: everything from strawberries […]

El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant In La Jolla (San Diego, California)

You must be thinking, “wow this couple travels and eats out a lot!”. You’re correct, we do 😉 And one of our favourite places to eat in San Diego, is El Pescador Fish Market & Restaurant. Located in the lovely community of La Jolla, El Pescador has been serving the freshest seafood since 1974. Since […]

Taqueria Los 3 Hermanos (Bellingham, WA)

We were hesitant at first to try Taqueria Los 3 Hermanos because it’s located in the food court in Bellis Fair mall and, well, let’s face it, this isn’t Singapore where food court grub/hawker fare is incredibly delicious. However, my sister-in-law and her husband convinced us that it serves great authentic Mexican tacos. And they […]
