    McDonald’s Italian Pesto Chicken Sandwich Review

    Too Busy for Fast Food?! I can’t believe Italian days are almost over! I was so busy that actually had no time to stop by a McDonald’s for their World Taste Tour burger 2: the Italian Pesto Chicken Sandwich until the tail end of their run. From July 2 – July 15, McDonald’s flew your mouth from China to Italy for a huge change of taste. After the bland disappointment that was the Szechcuan burger, I was expecting the ‘arugula’ to actually be lettuce trimmed to arugula shape, and the ‘pesto’ to be… mayo. So, how did Italy fare against China? Let’s find out! As soon as I opened the box, I…

    626 Night Market 2018

    As if the Richmond Night Market wasn’t enough, when I was down in LA helping my waifu make hats (long story… maybe elaborate later. Maybe.) We took some time out of frantic hat making activities to go to the 626 Night Market in Arcadia, migraine and all. I was sick with some kind of sinus thing that weekend, but ain’t no virus was gonna stop me from overeating, thank you very much! It wasn’t really my style to map out what vendors we were going to hit up, but I’m glad we did beforehand because this place was overwhelmingly ginormous. The choices were plenty, and the lines were long. We…

    McDonald’s Chinese Szechuan Burger Review

    As someone who eats at McDonald’s more than I like to admit, I was pretty excited at the prospect of trying something that had the word Szechuan in it. All that hype over the Szechuan sauce from Rick and Morty was very curious indeed! I have no idea if the actual Rick and Morty inspired Szechuan sauce (that sold on eBay for a ridiculous price) was the one they shellacked over the pattie in this World Taste Tour burger, but I was down to try it! Are you traveling this summer? Unfortunately, I’m not going anywhere more than a day’s drive away. But let me travel vicariously around the world through…

    Richmond Night Market 2018 | Part 1

    In case you haven’t noticed, summer’s here! And the best part of summer? Not the vibrancy of the sun, the lack of need for jackets and umbrellas, not the sprawling luscious greenery — although those are all very nice — it’s the food at the Richmond Nightmarket that wins my heart (and stomach.) Every year, I get a zoom pass that allows 6 entries ($25) and just go hog wild on a binge eating flavor explosion extravaganza. Every year I eat until it hurts, fail to learn my lesson, do it all over again the week after, and the one after that until my zoom pass runs out. If you…
