My parents visited me for the first time back in October of 2012.
We ate a lot!
At the top we have some monstrous concoction from Serendipity 3.
Starting from the left, we have rice pudding from Rice to Riches in SoHo.
That was my first time there, and wahooo they know how to do rice pudding right. Fantasmic.
Next two are from Arturos. Same pizza. It was alright. A bit of a letdown after the buzz I kept hearing about it. It’s just your average coal-oven pie. Nothing crazy amazing going on there.
Next pic is just a weird one of my dad. I don’t think he had ever seen desserts so ginormous before.
Next up is some weird mixture of matzah and egg that is supposed to resemble matzah brie. All courtesy of Kutcher’s in Tribeca. The ambience there was great, but the food was so-so.
Next up is just my mom taking a blurry photo of some soy nugget or something.
Next stop was Soy & Sake in the West Village. That place nails veggie sushi like no other. Top notch. Their soy chicken is mouth-watering delish.
And finally we hit up Grimaldis. Boy oh boy, that was disappointing.
One of the coolest experiences ever!
India is a veggie paradise. I took as many pictures of food as I could!
I was mystified by the cuisine. It sure beats what we have here in the States.
Hoping to go back someday soon!
Los Angeles Eats.
Ok, I did not eat the burger or those fries. I’m vegetarian y’all.
Top two are from In n out Burger. That’s some burger and animal fries. I know everyone is obsessed with that joint.
Next two are from Veggie Grill. The best faux meat place around. These last two visits I ventured a little bit on the menu, and eeeh I think next time I go I’ll stick to their burgers and fries. The plates and soups don’t have a ton of flavor.
The bottom left is from some non-descript mexican place. I think I ate everything and liked it? I think i enjoyed the experience of eating there more than the food.
This last meal was from Silverlake. I’m blanking on the name, but it was alright. The lemon ricotta pancakes were weak and so was this portion.
Those LA folk and their small portions…
The day I figured out how to unfold my crepe takeout container into a plate. I’m pleased with myself.
Veggie burger at Hillstone.
Ok, this place is known for its veggie burger, but it wasn’t up to par with the heavy hitters.
It was overcooked and crunchy on the bottom and fell apart after the first bite.
I’m also not a fan of weird, thin fries like that. Like come on, lemme get at that patater.
If you’re a veggie, I’d pass on this place and go chow down elsewhere.
Hash House A Go Go in Las Vegas.
I didn’t eat the pancake cause it tasted sour, so I opted for the fried green tomato stack.
Eggs and biscuits were the standouts.
Prepare to gain a couple pounds after this experience!
