New York, NY - So I know this was terrible picture to use since it's half eaten, but it is definitely blog worthy. I had this some time ago when I was visiting a friend in NY, so unfortunately I don't know the name of the place. This little donut shop in East Village made fresh donuts every morning and you can literally buy a donut right after it's made. In this case, that's this one and it was so good, Krispy Creams can't compete. It just melts when you eat it, it's so good. As you can tell, I couldn't stop to take a picture before I started eating this and had to force myself to stop. Enjoy!

Monroe, MI - Happy Anniversary! This is our anniversary cake from Cakes by Stephanies! I know I'm bias, but their cakes have to be the best I've ever had. For our anniversary they made this cake for free. It actually was the flavor I didn't get a chance to try at the wedding, Lemon Mousse. I guess since we didn't get a slice at the wedding, we got a whole cake of it and it was worth it. There is a lemon mousse layer in between the lemon cake. Wow was it good! Enjoy!

Lansing, MI - Have you noticed a theme yet? Lots of Thai and Vietnamese. Well, this is Vietnamese, Bun Tofu. It is from Asian's Finest on the southside of Lansing. This was so good. It has lots of veggies under the tofu and the great sauce you get just makes the dish. Also, it comes with fresh cilantro and mint, so the flavors are so defined. Enjoy!

Birmingham, MI - I am a Thai food fanatic! This is Preaw Warn from Thai Express. This was the first time I had a sweet and sour Thai dish. It turned out to be very good. It was nice and spicy but perfectly tangy. As you can see, it had lots of veggies and tofu. I really enjoyed this dish, but it doesn't have one of those very unique flavors that you couldn't reduplicate in your kitchen. Enjoy!

New York, NY - This is the city where it all started. The idea of starting a food blog. My good friend Fred gave me the idea of doing this after he saw all the wonderful food I seek out. Well, so far New York is the only place I've been able to find Tibetan food. This is steamed garlic dumplings, unfortunately I don't know that Tibetan name of the dish. These were simply awesome with meat and spices inside. However, the best part was the garlic dipping sauce, which is the brown sauce in the upper right hand corner. Wow, that was really what made the dish phenomenal. Enjoy!

Birmingham, MI - Thai food strikes again. This is from Sy Thai Cafe in downtown Birmingham. This place had been talked up and and I got Pad Kkhing, which was very good. However, for the price, I don't think it was worth it. the brown sauce dishes are becoming my favorite. This dish had tofu, green peppers, onions, and those brown squiggily things that I have no idea what they are. If you don't like green peppers, I definitely don't recommend this dish because everything tastes and smells like them. Enjoy!

West Bloomfield, MI - Part of the experience of going out to eat at an ethnic restaurant is not just the food, but the atmosphere and ambiance. I've been unsuccessful in finding an Israeli restaurant outside of Israel, until now. Thanks to my friends at work, Terri and Elisa, I have finally found one called Yossi. If you would like to try the Israeli experience, try this place out and I don't think you will be disappointed. The menu is filled with Israeli style food, paintings, and signs everywhere in Hebrew. Now the food, it was also very very good. The first picture is of the Israeli Salad, which consists of cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions in an olive oil vinaigrette dressing. It tastes amazingly fresh and is perfect for a nice little salad. The sandwich is a falafel pita wrap that contains falafel lettuce tomato, pickles, and tahini sauce. This is probably one of the best falafel sandwiches I've had in a long time. The pickles, which is one of the Israeli touches, really helps accentuate the sandwich. Enjoy!
