I was in Santa Cruz last night for a bonfire with a few friends but was about to drop dead from hunger, and as delicious as S’mores are, there’s always that craving in the back of your head and you’ll never be satisfied until you have it and mine was burgers! Who doesn’t love a good burger? That was when me and a few friends left the beach to try burger. Literally, the title is “burger.” And it lives up to its burger name! Continue reading


Chocolate Covered Strawberries

There is nothing I crave more sometimes than a delicious bar of chocolate and bowl of strawberries to go with it. And what better than to have the strawberries dipped in delicious mouth watering chocolate from Godiva! Every time I’m walking down the walkways of Westfield Valleyfair across Santana Row, the aroma of the Godiva store always captures both my nose and heart!

Cafe Grillades

A few weeks back, I had family visiting us from Seattle and as usual, we took our tourists to the lovely San Francisco! We took them to Marin Headlands which is a hilly peninsula at the southernmost end of Marin County, California, United States, located just north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, which connects the two counties and peninsulas, and gives you a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco! After a long day of hiking and site seeing, there was only one thing left to do, EAT DINNER! So on our way back we stopped by Cafe Grillades, located in San Bruno. A small Algerian cafe that serves finger licking good food and huge portions of it too!  Continue reading

Livin’ Fajita Loca

On a rainy Friday a few days back, my friend and I were hungry, craving Mexican food, and ready to leave the house. So we set out to Pedro’s!  My friend had previously recommended it but I never had the chance to actually try it. Hidden between the Santa Clara Marriott, surrounding hotels, and Oracle, you’ll find a beautiful mansion-looking building which is actually the restaurant itself! The general aesthetic of both the outside and inside of the restaurant is to die for! It has both a homey and mid-evil times feel to it.  Continue reading

California Pizza Kitchen!

On a bright Saturday afternoon I had scheduled to meet up with a friend for lunch somewhere in Palo Alto. She had been volunteering at Kaiser near the Stanford Shopping Center and we decided to meet up there. Overwhelmed with the amount of options for locations to eat, we decided to have lunch at California Pizza Kitchen!

Ice-Ice Baby

I came across Recess Italian Ice because of my friends posting pictures of it on SnapChat! All I could think was “Damn I have to try this it looks delicious”. But pictures can hide 1000 flavors! The general aesthetic of the inside of the store was very pleasing and welcoming. The walls are white with black writing or covered with the Recess logo and the staff is friendly and welcoming!
