Iconic Eats: Primanti Brothers and Prantl’s Bakery

For my final day in Pittsburgh, I enjoyed a baseball game and a couple iconic eats! I have nothing against trying a city’s most popular and famous dishes, especially if it’s your first time visiting. Located near my hotel in Market Square was Primanti Brothers. I’ve seen the Pittsburgh-born sandwiches on television a few times…

My First In-N-Out Experience

My first trip to California may have been years ago and I went back a couple times, but I never found the chance to try In-N-Out until I went to San Jose! After the hockey game, I knew I had to check out the major West Coast fast food chain before heading home. There was…

Lunch at Katsukura

Japanese cuisine is my absolute favorite! Sushi may top the list, but another Japanese dish I can’t get enough of is tonkatsu (breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet). One of the best of the tonkatsu chains is Kyoto-based Katsukura. I stopped by for lunch one afternoon. There are several locations in Kyoto and I went to the…

Matcha and Sweet Potato Snacks in Asakusa

I have to mention how much I loved the Japanese-style shower room and amazing Japanese heated toilets. Once you go Japanese toilet, it’s really hard to go back. We walked…

Off to Tokyo!

Helloooooooo, Japan! After spending a few days in Hong Kong, I finally made it to my top dream destination! Seriously, ever since becoming infatuated with Japanese cuisine when I was little due to my parents bringing me to a particular restaurant and grocery store, I’ve always wanted to go to Japan. I landed at Narita…

Leaving Hong Kong

It was time to pack up and leave Hong Kong. I had such a great time in this vibrant city. It was hectic, crowded, historic, delicious, and absolutely exhilarating! I had a wonderful time in Macau too. I flagged down a taxi and made my way to Hong Kong International Airport. I still had a…

A Food Tour with Delectable Travels

For my last night in Seoul, I was able to enjoy a delicious food tour with Delectable Travels – immersive tours and programs led by Daniel Gray, a Korean-American who decided to return to Korea back in 2005 to discover his roots. He started a popular food blog which led him to appear on many…
