Excited to try a new cuisine in Hawaii!

I am always so excited to try new types of foods. A few months ago, I came across a Uzebek joint in Downtown, called Silk Road Café. The first of its kind in Hawaii.

I didn’t know what to expect! I didn’t know what kind of dishes they would have.


This is fried lagman. It reminded me of spaghetti. It’s a ground beef, veggie, noodle stir-fry. I liked it! The bread was amazing! The noodles reminded me of udon. Very similar.


This is the lagman soup. Same ingredients, just in a soup style. Mmm! You know me and soup.

I want to make my way back there again to try their other dishes very soon. They have some interesting items on their menu. I love their place. They sell a lot of imported food products, too. Very interesting. I had no idea what half of those items were, haha! I think they were labeled in Russian.

So where is Uzbekistan, you say? It’s in the middle of the “stan” countries: Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgystan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, & Pakistan. Too many “stans.” Haha!

Mexican fancy dancy!

Happy #tbt!

This Mexican restaurant looks so fancy, doesn’t it?


Tropisueño Mexican Kitchen is located in San Francisco, California. My boyfriend went on a business trip and dined at that restaurant. He ordered the Chile Verde, which consisted of: tender pieces of pork simmered in tangy tomatillos, green peppers, chiles, and herbs. Supposedly, this dish is a house favorite. Looks amazing! He really enjoyed it! A different touch to the traditional Mexican food! He mentioned he had a Mexican Coke in a traditional Coke bottle. Cool!

I’d like to visit this place whenever I’m in SF. The menu sounds delicious!

#tbt in Roma!

Almost 10 years ago, my travel gang and I went on a Mediterranean cruise that embarked from Rome, Italy. We visited the following countries: Sicily (Messina), Greece (Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini), Turkey (Kuşadası-Ephesus), and Italy (Naples). We returned to Rome where we disembarked and toured the city for a few days before heading back to the States.

It was my first international trip and I was beyond excited. There were so many awesome memories with new friends.

On our first night in Rome, we dined at Ristorante Aqua Pizzeria. I was super excited to try authentic Italian food, one of my favorites! I LOVE pasta!!

So guess what I ordered? Pasta, haha!

It’s seafood spaghetti! It was delicious! I wiped the dish clean! Pasta craving was definitely satisfied!


I also tried wine for the first time! Exciting! Even though I wasn’t 21 yet, I was legal in Europe!!! Yea! It was a white wine and was pretty good. Next to the wine, is water. They serve it “with gas” or “no gas.” Basically, carbonated or non-carbonated.

I loved Italy! I would love to return again one day to explore the country more and grind more authentic Italian food!
