Funnel Cake Cravings

We all love us some good funnel cake. But where can we get some if we're not willing to wait for the street fairs or make a trek to the local amusement park?

Try this place: Miches Filipino Cuisine

I have yet to come here, but the funnel cake cravings are calling!

Chinese New Years!

As some of you may know, the world has recently just celebrated Chinese New Years 2010! This is a huge celebration lasting nearly a month. It is a time specially dedicated to family and prosperous health. One big Chinese tradition is to make dumplings for New Years! This year, my Mom decided to make cabbage and pork stuffing -you can also choose to make chives and eggs, chicken and vegetables, etc. In Chinese culture, a lot of people like to eat this dish with dark vinegar. Americans tend to choose soy sauce dipping.

California Pizza Kitchen

California Pizza Kitchen is a great restaurant located in Emeryville, among many other areas. My sister and I grabbed lunch here with a friend. The food was delicious, the service- not so much. I've always had problems with the service at this place. I ordered the Club Pizza, which has avocados, tomatoes, mayonnaise, bacon bits, grilled chicken, and lettuce (basically a sandwich in pizza form). This was so good, but do note that if you plan to save some for later, reheating may be a problem for the lettuce. We also shared a 1/2 serving of the Cobb Salad (a full serving is huge, we weren't even able to finish the 1/2!)
