NoPa Kitchen + Bar (San Francisco)

San Francisco is a wonderful food city. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it, no matter how many times I visit. NOPA has been on my radar for awhile, and from what I gather from trusty Yelp, it is one of the most popular brunch places in town. So obviously I had to drag my family there to try it out for myself. 
Custard French Toast - blueberries and lemon butter ($7 for half portion, $14 for full portion)
Desserts first! Our server wisely advised us to go with the half portion (we later saw the full portion from other tables and it was alarmingly big!) As far as French toasts go, this one was spot on. The outside- perfectly crisp, accompanied by the most divine lemon butter. The blueberries had just enough sweetness that we hardly needed the side of syrup at all. Delish!

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesdays: Inagiku

One of the best meals I had when I visited Macau last December was at Inagiku, situated in Starworld Hotel. Almost everything was superb! I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Brunch at L'ouvrier

One of my friends raved about brunch at L'ouvrier, so I had to try it out for myself. 
The decor was minimalist with predominantly white furniture and white walls. 
French press coffee ($3 per person)
The coffee was good, and even better when served in a dainty, pretty teacup.

Brunch @ Rose & Sons

I had a great dinner at Rose & Sons, and wanted to come back to try their brunch. Since the restaurant is quite small, we should have known to come earlier (we arrived around 11:30), and we had to wait for a good half hour before getting seated. 
Fried chicken and soft 'n sexy grits with poached egg and green sauce ($17)
Having previously sampled Rose & Sons' fried chicken before, I was pretty confident that this was going to be an awesome dish. I was not disappointed! Is there anything better than perfectly done fried chicken topped with a runny egg? The creamy grits were also excellent (super flavourful!), but extremely filling and the only component that I couldn't finish.

HK Eats- Cafe Deadend and Via Tokyo

I dragged my mom to hike 20 minutes uphill to go to Cafe Deadend in Sheung Wan. I follow a couple of Hong Kong foodies on instagram and this place always pops up on my feed.
My mom had an iced latte ($45 HKD), while I ordered a hot one ($40 HKD). Both were excellent, and I'd have it again in a heart beat.
