Happy 2018 everyone! I hope everyone had a great break. I spent most of mine holed up inside my comfy nest of blankets and binge-watching Netflix. We were watching one of those romantic-comedy Taiwanese dramas and the characters kept eating shaved ice.

I had a sudden craving for shaved ice and nothing says celebrating the new year like some dessert right? Luckily Blackball was open on New Year’s day and we popped in to pick up our order to go.

A few weeks before I left on my trip to Japan, I found out that Nakiryu, who was awarded one Michelin star for its dan dan noodles, released an instant ramen version of its famous noodles.

With the last stretch of summer, the hottest days are just before us so what better way to cool off than with some ice cream? I first found about Uji time through social media a couple months back when their San Francisco location first opened.¬†We didn’t really plan on going there that day but since we were already so close to Japan Town, we decided to check it out. Also, I hate parking San Francisco so I will be going to their Berkely location from now on.
