jus wanna do a quick update on macarons in boston. so besides macaron sweeterie in lexington and LA burdick, there is another place that sells french macarons in bean: argo tea.
argo tea cafe is located in northeastern university snell library. i heard you do need a student ID to get into the library but i could be wrong. so you might need your NEU friend to hook you up.
i got them as a gift from my NEU friend today. how sweet!!! <3
these are a lil bit too sweet for my liking, but i do like the green one a lot!!! i think it’s cantaloupe, never had that flavor before. i like these better than LA burdick, but def cant beat macaron sweeterie in lexington. if lexington is too far, this is a good alternative.

today i also went to boston common coffee co. to get some coffee. not a fan of their coffee at all, but it’s so cheap and close to my work and i go there sometimes when i dun wanna walk to starbucks. i saw they had macarons so i had to pick up two.
the first bite wasnt bad, then it became wayyyy too sweet and sugary tasting. i had hard time finishing it.
i dont think they have it all the time or at all locations.

i loved this place when i visited LA last spring break. one of the best hot dogs ive ever had. it’s located in the arts district and venice beach. they serve exotic sausage sandwiches, belgian fries with homemade dipping sauces, and 24 imported biers on tap.
some of their exotic hot dogs:
Duck & Bacon with Jalapeño Peppers – juicy and packed with flavor
Alligator (wow really?) & Pork, Andouille Sausage – hickory smoked, thick casing
Rattlesnake & Rabbit with Jalapeño Peppers
my friend had rattlesnake one and he liked it!
i forgot what i had. maybe duck? it was super good!
the fries were so good too! highly recommended!!!!!!

i like here better on weekdays. music is not as loud and the bar isnt as crowded. on weekends, the music are too loud to have a conversation with someone and you are not allowed to dance either.

i really enjoyed this place. the service was great. our waiter was very friendly and always served with a big smile on his face. guu izakaya is very popular, so it’s usually 1 hour + wait. they do not take reservations. the place isn’t too big. the seating is packed. you have to seat on wood benches shared with other people. the atmosphere is very japanese and extremely loud. food is delish and reasonably priced. *you dont have to tip as much as you tip here in the states.*

Toronto, ON M5B
we went to 49 social for a friend’s birtfuday. we seated in the basement where the live band was playing. they have a live jazz band. i thought the atmosphere was great for hosting a private party. the food was delish, but the service was extremely slow. took forever to serve, but i dont know if it’s because the size of our group was too large.

pork belly and i had been planning to go to menton for our 2nd anniversary forever, but we have been spending too much money recently. pork belly just bought me a mac pro and a flash for my leica. if we go to menton, i def wanna go HAM which means dropping 4+ benjamins with tasting menu and wine paring. so we dediced to put off menton and go somewhere else instead. we picked grotto.
this restaurant is pretty small and cramped, but somewhat comfortable. very dark that i had to use my cellphone light to read the menu. pretty good and speedy service that i dont usually experience at small restaurants like this.
for appetizers we had mussels:
i love mussels, but this was just ok.
ricotta with sausage:
this was actually better than i expected. very creamy and tasty. really liked the cheese!!!!!!
potato gnocchi, short ribs, mushrooms, gorgonzola
this is grotto’s most popular dish. it was actually much better than i expected. the short ribs were super tender.
lobster fra diavolo
i was pretty disappointed with this dish. the lobster wasnt tender. the spicy sauce wasn’t bold and flavorful. it was ok. didnt meet my expectations.
melting chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. this was pretty good and normal tasting.
trio of ice creams: vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. for real? three whole scoops of ice creams?! this looked like a whole meal that can feed an entire family. normal tasting nothing too special.
this place gets 3.8/5 bunny belly
happy 2nd anniversary chea
if you work near downtown boston, you have to check out this chilean joint! i come here at least once a week. def love it. it’s a sandwich with beef/chicken, avocado spread, green beans, tomatos, red pepers, and homemade bread. i suggest you get a BBQ chicken or BBQ beef or the bbq combo, but sometimes i found the beef isnt tender. get there before or around 11:30 otherwise the line gets super long! this place takes cash only. the sandwich costs abt $9.
small bbq chicken. yea, it’s huge!
this place gets 5/5 bunny belly!
