I ❤️ to explore new places near and far and experience cultures through my camera and connecting through food - all photos are taken by me.

We ran out of Japanese tea and had to stopped by Mitsuwa market to get more. When we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised to see long line of people waiting to get these great smelling and tasting Japanese style pancakes - O-Banyaki. Hot off the grill - 1 custard, 2 red beans, and 2 green tea red bean flavor. So delicious! #japanesedesserts #obanyakiredbean #obanyakimatcha #obanyakicustard #sweets#redbeans#macharedbeans

Happy new year! I am not a chocolate fan but I did try one of these exotic truffles from Vosges and it was very good. I tried the Absinthe (top row corner on the right) it contains Sri Lankan coconut ash, fennel and Chinese star anise. #exocticchocolate #exotictruffles #exotictrufflecollection#sugar#sweets#chocolatelovers

While I was at the Asian market today, I got some cherimoyas - Mãng Cầu (Custard Apple) and showed the kids how to eat them. They said these look like dinosaur eggs. Anyway, it’s funny how certain food can bring back great memories as a child. Really miss these tropical fruit so much - getting back to my roots through food. #tropicalfruit #cherimoya #naturemade #heathlyfood#mãngcầu #mangcauxiem #custardapples

Tonight, I made Vietnamese Crab Noodle Soup (Bun Rieu) for dinner. It was quite a challenge because apparently there’s a shortage of dungeons crabs in Northern California and after going to 5 Asain market, finally got our crab for soup. #tomatoes #shrimps#dungenesscrabs #fishpaste#beefneckbones #shrimppaste #fishsauce #crabpastesoup#homemadesoup#foodie #foodporn #foodlust #bunrieu#homecooking

Simplicity! ❤️ my soup noodles. Cheap good eats. Mi Trieu Chau = combination shrimps, squid, beef balls, fried fish balls and pork kidneys in egg noodle soup. One of my fondest childhood memories is having a bowl of this with my mom in the street markets of Vietnam. #eggnoodlesoup #porkkidneys #friedfishballs#beefballs#shrimps#squid#mitrieuchau#foodie #foodporn #foodlust
