Despite the massive dump of pictures and reviews, this mainly consists of the new places I have been to since the last post. Unless I find an entree that is ridiculously awesome at a place I have already been, I won’t repost and make you re-read. Enjoy and I definitely hope I’m making you hungry. I just made myself hungry writing this…

What a freaking hot day. Sohel said a friend of his recommended this place, so we tried it out. By all means, it was great. Although the lighting is really really low, the atmosphere was quite nice and food was awesome. It’s definitely a place I’d go to again since their fusion is quite interesting and not way too off the map for my taste buds.

After helping Yuwi pack up a few things, she took us out to eat! The soup dumplings are definitely awesome, but as we were finishing up, they were preparing this beef tribe dish. Everyone enjoyed it, except for Joseph, lol.

I’ve been working a lot lately, so I have to order in food. This was way more than I expected, but you know I finished all of it. I like their sticky rice, but the pork belly was kind of bland. Good thing I had Sriracha.

The evening before, I ordered burgers for Joseph, Yuwi and I to get delivered to her new place on my account. Then I ordered from this from my apartment, but as soon as I got an email confirmation, I realized I left the address to her place, d’oh! I called and asked if they could deliver it all the up to my place and that I’d give extra tip to the delivery person. It took a while and it was damn worth it. Hamachi kama, a suite of sashimi, and their Black Pearl Signature Roll was definitely overkill on my sushi crave. I should definitely go here in person.
McDonald’s WTF, seriously?!
I had to put this here because it’s my first Big Mac in ages! This time, I made it awesome. Was alcohol involved in this decision making process? Of course!

Yeah, re-post, but c’mon it’s two poached eggs, steak, and new potatoes! This place has yet to disappoint me.

Nothing like a pizza in New York. I added garlic and basil to this sausage and pepperoni combo. I was shocked about how much garlic was on it, but totally excited!
43rd Avenue and 50th Street
Queens, NY 11104
Two words: LIVE OCTOPUS. A couple other things came out still alive! If you haven’t tried this yet, please do. I wouldn’t go here again for the food, despite the ridiculously overwhelming amount they gave us. Maybe next time we’ll try smaller pots because though it looked promising, it was quite bland.

Great little dinner outside. Who can say no to soft shell crab? I can’t. Plus, dessert was so ridiculously good – thanks for the recommendation miss waitress (sorry I don’t remember your name).
