Brickyard Coffee and Tea Downtown San Diego

I used to walk pass a cute little brick building on Kettner Blvd and West G St. whenever I was going to Seaport Village from my sisters office building downtown San Diego. (It is actually located right at the Seaport Village trolley stop, making a perfect place to stop by as you wait for the trolley.) […]

Breakfast In Hawaii, Pine Tree Cafe, Island Lava Java, Omelets, Loco Moco

Breakfast on the Hawaiian Island: Pine Tree Cafe and Island Lava Java Bake and Brew

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day (if I’m up early enough for breakfast). I didn’t do too much homework to try to find where to eat or anything, instead I just relied on Yelp and recommendations from my family. On day 2, we stopped by Pine Tree Cafe because it had four […]

Monterey Park: Har Lam Kee Restaurant, Aji Ichiban, Macchiato Cafe

I’m actually drafting this post as I plan my day trip to Los Angeles with my best friend. It all started with a request from V to go to Aji Ichiban for some asian snacks. The plan is a day trip to Los Angeles to Monterey Park, Beverley Grove, and then Little Tokyo. This is part […]

Kopitiam: Singapore Toast Cafe in Seoul

I studied abroad in Singapore for a year and I came back with a love for Singaporean cuisine. Being in San Diego, I honestly don’t get my fix of Singaporean food (ever). Does anyone know where I can go in Southern California? Anyways, being in Asia (I know, it’s a big continent but I’m getting a […]

Hello Kitty Cafe: Hongdae

We went to the hongdae outlet, but there are several in located in Seoul and in other major South Korean cities. We walked by the another Hello Kitty Cafe in Samcheong-dong but it wasn’t opened at that time (I think that location was cuter).

Cafes and Coffee Shops are Everywhere in South Korea

There is definitely no shortage of coffee in South Korea. There are many areas in Seoul that are known for having streets lined with cute and unique coffee shops / cafes; like Garosugil and Hongdae. I actually considered spending a whole day going to coffee shop/cafe hopping because there were so many I wanted to […]

Gangnam Style: Garosugil – Shopping, Coffee, and Ice Cream
