Rainy day eating lunch with our friend Eddy from Baltimore and eating "food that soothes the soul," @kimliaw91 calls it. After a hard week of work and the end of a weekend, this makes everything go away. Well, maybe not everything but the hour we ate good food, conversed about our business ventures, we created goals and comforted ourselves by counting our blessings. @cafenhan Thank you for the great service and amazing bum bo hue, pho dac biet, bahn mis, and goi cuon. Even more thankful you were BYOB so we could all enjoy a Yuengling each. Crossing our fingers and staying positive we will create solutions of all the projects of this week. Hope you all have a great week as well! Dream big. .

Home cooked of my rendition inspired by a Vietnamese dish with ground turkey, roughly chopped bamboo, thai chilis, green beans, scallions, garden tomatoes and perilla leaves topped on thin spaghetti noodles. Yes, spaghetti noodles. Growing up, it was always my go to since I was home alone as a child. Mom was always at work and being the only child, rice wasn't what I wanted. .

Saad's. A very good sandwich with a side of fries and a chicken shawarma for lunch in West Philly. Cash only, no cell phones, and eat well.

We are looking mighty yellow today sir! Last week, I went to my endocrinologist and he said, if you get a soar throat and a fever or turn yellow, call us right away. I said, "Doctor, I am always yellow. Been called that all my life." 🤣 Well, I think he thought it was funny and so did the intern.
Gathering people through the love of food has been my passion and it is so gratifying to feel these passions unfold. Thanks to all who are part of the groups, meetups, and those who are now friends. Blessed. Connect through food and share your culture. .

Ceviche with friends with margaritas. We had a great time sharing stories of our lives. The older I get, the more blessed I feel about these type of moments. How great it is to be able to pursue your dreams and make lasting memories on the way.
@lasbugambiliasphilly thank you so much for the amazing service, great ceviche, and fantastic ambiance.

Indian snacks at Chowpatty Sweets and Snacks in Iselin, NJ know as India town in the East. Blessed to have spent a day with a great friend @khush_abu and because of her , I had the best Indian street food, completely new to me. Do you agree it's the best to try new foods with friends who grew up with the food. To try the foods of one's culture and wake up senses I never knew existed is an amazing experience. The sad thing is you never get your first time back and today was definitely a first for me. To commemorate the experience, we shot some amateur Videos. Hopefully we will show it one day. Thank you to those who follow.

Our dog, Mimi. I had no idea dogs have allergies. I thought she was choking and tried to take her to the vet for emergency surgery. Called in a panic and they reassured me she wasn't choking. 1/2 a benadryl twice a day. She's my sister my mom used to call her. 🐶
Hope everyone enjoyed their Tuesday. I finally watched Crazy Rich Asians so it was a great Tuesday, September 11. .

Beautiful Philadelphia. It's been a year since visiting and deciding this is the place to call home and to start as a seed.
On 9/11, on a Tuesday morning, 17 years ago, many lost someone. Remembering the tragic day so many lost their lives and life changing forever, I hope to take many moments of silence and reflection as we remember. .

Last night my friend who had always been there for me, visited Philly and as usual like college girls, we talked about life through the love of food. 20 minutes late to meet her husband at the Reading Terminal, she made sure I wasn't stuck in the always eating the same foods box and challenged me to foods I would have never chosen at The Reading Terminal.
This picture is of four doughnuts from @beilersdoughnuts and they were amazing! Pastry Creme Coconut, Strawberry Fillled, Lemon, and Creme Powdered were All so good. Thank you for making such amazing doughnuts. Sorry my pics aren't the prettiest but I hope to relay, we loved these doughnuts. We finished them and Tried to get more but the line was too long. I think in the last week I feel like I am turning into a doughnut. 😂
Friend. I love you. Thank you for all you've done for me. When I had my first heartbreak, when I felt defeated, and when my mother passed, you were there holding my hair up for me or buying me Ichiran ramen. You even gave me a little of your egg when I dropped my $3 egg. Hope to see you soon.

I just couldn't wait for my slow Samsung phone to load up the camera to take the picture of the untouched food. It was that good! 😂
So many pictures on instagram may look like art but not all will taste what I tasted tonight. This dish was sponsored by a funeral home in South Philly to give back to the community. For $5, one could get choices of Fried fish, ribs, Chicken wings, salads, Pork chops, pulled pork sandwiches, and more. Also there was a comedy show for another $5 which was amazing. 6 amazing comedians, a couple of which were Philly's own made me laugh so so hard.

I was the only Asian in the whole event, but I felt like family. People don't know this about me but I actually feel I may have been African American in a past life if there were such a thing. Growing up in Tennessee, alot of my friends were black. Anyways, I got to meet alot of amazing people and have food truly made with love! Thank you! @datgirlcomedy @mrjoshkosh Btw, support all community businesses. .

Tuna Guacamole @royal_izakaya. Izakaya food made with love. Sushi, grilled shishito peppers, and the lotus chips are what everyone will crave once they try it once. It's rare to find a place so perfect in every way. Thank you.
Dinner was with a new friend @keystoneconcierge and I truly enjoyed feasting with you. The drink selection was overwhelming so we went with a pitcher of Ichiban meaning #1. Ichiban for me was my favorite Japanese Restaurant in Nashville when I was growing up. My mom and I would go there after months of cleaning buildings together and her cutting lots and lots of hair. I have so many memories flooding back and I truly enjoyed eating with you, Lori. Thank you!
