Looking back on the food and drinks at Lollapalooza
2009-08-18 22:00:00
I had a blast at this past Lollapalooza at Grant Park in Chicago. Lollapalooza is an annual music festival founded by Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction. This year, it was held from Friday Aug 6th to Sunday Aug 8th. I only attended the first day, but I had an awesome time even though the weather was not too friendly. In addition to the musical performances, there's were also art installations around the park, a Playstation tent, and an autograph booth. There was an Art Market, with craft stands and vendors selling green eco-friendly goods. I made sure to stop by the merchandise stands to pick up some Lollapalooza memorabilia T-shirts and artist T-shirt. It was also a good way to keep warm in the pouring rain.Here's a short recap of the food and beverages I came across at Lollapalooza.For lunch, we wandered to Lederhosen?s Biergarten, a beer garden with shaded picnic tables serving up ice cold beers like Becks, Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, and others. There, we saw HAUS OF SAUSAGE. I...

Update from Lookytasty.com
2009-08-14 02:36:00
Just came back from Chicago late last night. It was an awesome trip, from Lollapalooza to Chicago Comic Con to voyaging around Chicago neighborhoods. I managed to sneak in some food adventures... ordered some Chicago's pizza, munched on some Wow Baos, gobbled up half price sushi at Tank, ate some pad thai at Noodles and Company, and some more. I will begin writing and posting pictures shortly, but first I have to catch up on a few things. Stay tuned.

I received my Emeril's sampler pack the other day. Inside my sampler pack, I found the following items: Emeril?s All-Natural Organic Vegetable Stock, Emeril?s Specialty Kicked up Horseradish Mustard, Emeril?s Original Essence Seasoning, and Emeril's Steak Rub.I was never a huge fan of Emeril, but I wanted to give these items a try. Vegetable stock is always good to have. I can add it to rice when I cook it on the stove, or use it as a soup base for some noodles. I like horseradish mustard and it's a great condiment for sandwiches and subs. I rarely eat steak, but steak rub may be handy. I have no idea what the essense seasoning is, but I can't wait to add it to some dish.I had to catch my plane for Chicago the following day, so those items are just sitting in my pantry right now. I will use them when I get back. I'm currently in Chicago and will be staying a few days. Food adventures in Chicago!

Brunch at Legume Bistro, Pittsburgh, PA
2009-07-31 15:35:00
I came across some pictures from a while back when a bunch of us went to Legume Bistro for Sunday brunch. Legume Bistro is located at 1113 S. Braddock Ave in the Regent Square area of Pittsburgh , PA. They are a small family operated restaurant. What caught our attention was their small but unique menu offering Italian and French inspired American cuisine. Their dinner menus change every day and they post them on their website by 5pm. Their brunch menu also varies week to week. The dishes they offer depend on the ingredients available to them. Most of the ingredients they use are organic and locally grown, with the exception of a few delicious ingredients that might not be available locally.Normally, their brunch runs from 10am to 2pm, but one that day they had to close early to prepare for a special dinner.Here's what we had for brunch that day. For a beverage, I ordered the French press coffee.I couldn't help but notice how adorable this cream container was. The waiter told us th...

Mackerel patties
2009-07-17 15:05:00
I found a can of mackerel in the pantry shelf the other day. I usually use it to make a spicy fish stew to serve over rice, but this time I wanted to try something different. Here's a recipe for some mackerel patties.Ingredients:15 oz can of mackerel, drained1/2 cup whole grain cereal, blended (I used Kelloggs All-bran Bran buds cereal.

Oatmeal breakfast bars 2
2009-07-16 17:10:00
I really liked how these oatmeal breakfast bars came out last time. I decided to make a new batch of oatmeal bars, but this time make them a little bit more crunchy. I used the same recipe and added some blended cereal. I had some Kelloggs All-Bran bran buds on the pantry shelf. These little cereal pellets are high in fiber and vitamins. I rarely eat it on its own because it's a bit too bland. It has an interesting texture because they are bran buds and not flakes. I normally mix some in about one-third cup with my cereal or sprinkle it over yogurt. I poured a cup of All-Bran ran buds into a mini food processors and blended it. After making the oatmeal bar mixture, I slowly mixed in the blended bran buds until it reached a nice consistency.I poured it into a baking pan and tossed it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. These oatmeal bars came out even better than the previous. I really like the crunchiness. I store the oatmeal bars in the fridge and warm it up in the to...

Tofu fish fillet
2009-07-06 17:41:00
Here's a recipe for tofu fish fillet, but without the fish. It is really just breaded slices of tofu baked in an oven, but very, very tasty. You can put it on top of a salad, make it into a sandwich, or serve it with your favorite condiments. You can also make them into fish fillet sticks and serve it with tartar sauce or dijon mustard.Ingredients:12 ounces firm tofuOne egg, beaten Panko breadcrumbs2 tbsp wine vinegar1/4 tsp paprika1/4 tsp garlic powder1/4 tsp onion powderDirections:Cut the block of tofu into halves for large slices, or into fours for smaller slices.

Oatmeal breakfast bars
2009-07-04 14:33:00
I usually like to have some breakfast bars laying around on my desk or in my bag. They make the perfect snack when you're on the go. I try to stick to ones that are in the range of 90-180 calories each package, that don't taste like candy bars. Nature Valley granola bars are great. I love Rice Krispies treats, but I prefer to make those at home, since I find the packaged ones a bit too sweet and not crispy enough. Special K strawberry cereal bars are good. Kashi makes good granola bars that have a few grams of fiber and a few grams of protein. I recently tried All-bran fiber bars and I liked those too. They were only about 120-130 calories each package and about 10 grams of fiber.The other day, I tried to make my own breakfast bars. They came out really well and it was very easy to make.Here's a simple recipe for some oatmeal breakfast bars.Ingredients:2 2/3 cup oats2/3 cup nuts (I used crushed pecans)1/2 tsbp cinnamon2 medium bananas, mashed1/3 cup apple sauce2 tbsp honey1 eggDi...

Oven baked pork chop
2009-07-03 18:03:00
Here's an oven baked pork chop over a spring mix salad, topped with crushed almonds.This is very easy and simple, and makes a great lunch. The marinade for the pork chop consists of soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.I placed a few pork chops in a container and pour in the marinade. I let it sit in the fridge and marinate for a couple hours (or make 10-15 minutes if you're hungry). I heated the oven to 350 degrees F. I baked the pork chops for about 20-30 minutes, until the pork chops were done (The internal temperature of the pork chops should reach 160 degrees F).

Water Spinach
2009-07-02 19:36:00
This Asian vegetable looks like a mix of watercress and spinach. It grows in similar conditions as watercress and has the nutrition value like spinach does. It tastes similar to spinach but is crunchy. It is very easy to prepare. Most simple way is to pour some oil in a heated skillet, add some garlic, add the water spinach and stir fry for a few minutes.There's many ways to prepare water spinach by itself as a side dish. Here's a few alternatives:Stir fry with oil, garlic, rice vinegar or dry sherry, and soy sauce.Stir fry with oil, garlic, chili pepper, oyster sauce, and shrimp paste or bean paste.Stir fry with oil, chili pepper, garlic, ginger, and shrimp paste.Stir fry with oil, garlic, fermented bean curd.

Green tea tofu soy ice cream
2009-06-17 04:26:00
The recipe I ended up using was the Vegan soy ice cream recipe from Post Punk Kitchen. The recipe was very basic and used minimal ingredients. All I had to do was customize it with my choice of flavor.Ingredients:12 ounces firm silken tofu1 cup plain soy milk1/3 cup maple syrup2 tsp vanilla5 tsp green tea powderDirections:Combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until the mixture becomes smooth.Next, I added the green tea powder. I added a little extra for a stronger green tea taste.Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions. For my machine, I left it on for about 20 minutes and that did the job.Here's the green tea ice cream.It came out great! The texture of the ice cream was very smooth and creamy. The green tea flavor was perfect too. I didn't add any sugar, because I like my green tea ice cream bitter. There's something about sweeten green tea ice cream that just bugs me a bit.

Ice cream maker
2009-06-15 22:18:00
Although my weekend was pretty busy, I did manage to put aside some time for ice cream making! I received a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker as a gift several months ago (Thanks!). Since it was the winter back then, I decided to save it for spring/summer time. The first day of summer is about a week away, so I figured it would be a good time to get familiar with ice cream making.I took the ice cream maker out of the box and washed it with some warm soapy water, being careful not to scratch the freezer bowl. Next, I placed the freezer bowl into the freezer overnight. The ice cream maker came with a small booklet with instructions and recipes for ice creams, yogurts, gelati and sherbets. However, being lactose-intolerant, I browsed the internet to find a good recipe for an ice cream base which used tofu and soy instead of milk and heavy cream. Once I have that, I can experiment with different flavors.For my first attempt, I decided to make some green tea soy ice cream. Recipe and pictures co...

This about concludes my Adventures in Toronto . I enjoyed wandering around and eating in Toronto. I definitely plan on making another visit up to Toronto sometime in the future. There's still so much to explore and so much to eat! Here's two restaurants (out of many) that caught my attention as I walked by, but did not have the chance to dine at.Aji Sai Japanese Restaurant, at 467 Queen St West.I would love to try this All you can eat lunch special for $10.99 CAD.Wanda's Belgium Waffles, at 331 Yonge Street.Those waffles looked so good through the window.Toronto, we will meet again! :)Links:- Dim Sum at Bright Pearl Restaurant- Johnny Banana- Eggspectations (1)- Eggspectations (2)- Poutine at Harvey's- Pat's Homestyle Jamaican Restaurant- Sunset Grill- Sushi Island- Tim Horton's
Adventures in Toronto: Eggspectations (2)
2009-06-04 02:58:00
It was our last morning in Toronto . Since we enjoyed Eggspectations so much, we decided to grab breakfast there one last time before we left Toronto. This time we were seated further back in the restaurant. This gave me an opportunity to take some pictures of the restaurant's interior. It was a a weekday late morning and the restaurant was quite empty at that time.Here's what we had for breakfast:Chicken BenedictThis is one of their signature eggs benedict dishes. It's two eggs poached, topped with grilled chicken, gruyère cheese and hollandaise sauce.Western omeletteThis is regular western omelette with ham, onion, green pepper, red pepper, etc.Side of corned beefBasket of toastsMost of their locations are in Canada (Quebec, Montreal, Ontario), but their also have a few locations in India and the United States. They actually have two locations in Maryland and one in Virginia.Link: Previous visit to Eggspectations

Adventures in Toronto: Poutine at Harvey's
2009-06-02 21:08:00
We have been walking around Toronto doing touristy things, like visiting the CN Tower, and we were hungry. We were craving for a snack that would fuel us up until dinner time. We came across a Harvey's fast food restaurant. I remember seeing a bunch of them across the city. Apparently, they are like the second largest Canadian food chain, after Tim Horton's. My buddy suggested to go stop by and grab some poutine. Poutine? What's that?Poutine: french fries topped with fresh cheese curds and hot gravyThe french fries are regular sized fries. The cheese curd is at about room temperature. The chunks of cheese are placed top of the warm fries. The gravy is super hot and is poured over the cheese curds and french fries. The gravy will start to melt some of the cheese, so eat it immediately before everything turns too soggy. It is similar to cheese fries, except it's cheese curds instead of melted cheddar cheese. However, it's probably one of the least healthy things to eat.It was my ...

Adventures in Toronto: Eggspectations
2009-05-30 15:43:00
We thought Sunset Grill was pretty neat, but just had to check out the other breakfast restaurant the lady at the hotel suggested. Eggspectations was located on 220 Yonge St. This place had really nice decor. It's definitely on the fancier scale of diners. The restaurant was dimly lit and had a nice atmosphere. I thought it was kind of cute that their door knobs were shaped like eggs.This is the cover of their menu. I really like their logo. It's adorable!Their menu was quite impressive. They had the regular items, like eggs, meat, bagels, etc. and they had pages of their signature dishes, with fun names often starting with the prefix "Egg-". The restaurant also had a bar. Sweet! They listed some of their special alcoholic coffee beverages. We thought it would be quite nice to enjoy a White Russian (or something similar) along with our breakfast.We ordered two of the Eggspectation signature dishes. Here's what we had for breakfast:EggstremeSmoked salmon, grilled tomatoes and two...

Adventures in Toronto: Sunset Grill
2009-05-29 16:49:00
We were craving for some good breakfast foods, like eggs, ham, toasts, omelettes, and that good stuff. We went to the hotel information desk and asked for some recommendations for local diner places. The lady at the desk picked up an area map and drew some circles. She gave the names of two diner/breakfast restaurants. She referred to Sunset Grill as a regular casual diner and the Eggspectations as a more upscale diner. They were both about two blocks away. We thanked her for her help and walked away staring at the map, trying to decide which of the two places to check out.We decided to hit up Sunset Grill located on 1 Richmond St. West (at Yonge and Richmond). We were a little intimidated by the idea of going to an upscale diner for breakfast. We were simply craving breakfast foods, but nothing too fancy, and so, a regular diner would hit the spot.After we were seated, we quickly looked through the menu and placed our orders. I decided to go for their fluffy pancakes and a side of ...

Adventures in Toronto: Sushi Island
2009-05-24 14:23:00
One late evening, we ventured over to the Little Italy area of Toronto . We were in the mood for sushi and was looking for Sushi Island , located at 571 College St. It was pretty late in the evening and they had stopped offering their All you can eat special (which starts from about $14). Therefore, we were only able to order from their regular menu. Here are some highlights.I think this was a pity salad. This is probably the tiniest salad I've ever seen.Sushi boat platter with 36 piecesDowntown roll (Eel, tobiko, cucumber, and cream cheese)Brown rice sushi (Brown rice with seaweed bits and black sesame seeds)Sushi Island was a pretty good place. The sushi was alright. They were probably close to closing their kitchen when we arrived. That explains the pity salads they offered us, since we were not expecting complimentary salads with our sushi plates. Brown rice sushi is always a neat thing to try. The atmosphere was kind of nice as well. They had these folding panel doors, which gav...

Adventures in Toronto: Johnny Banana

This cutesy logo caught my attention as we passed by. I'm a big fan of monkeys, and anything with a monkey almost instantly catches my attention. Johnny Banana is a small Mexican food place located at 181 Bathurst St near Queen St West. Even though it's a small restaurant, the simple, clean and bright interiors give the place a fun and hip look.Their menu is relatively small. It's like a fast food place serving burritos, quesadillas, tacos, nachos, and etc. They also serve beer. When you place your order, you work with the server while he assembles your burrito to your liking. I ordered a small chicken burrito with mole sauce, plus guacamole. This picture does the burrito no justice.Great burrito! Fresh ingredients. My burrito was a bit runny from too much mole sauce, but other than that it was a delectable burrito. The price was good too. My small, but appetizing and filling, burrito was about $5.75 CAD.

Adventures in Toronto: Pat's Homestyle Jamaican Restaurant
2009-05-22 15:12:00
While roaming around the streets of Toronto at the late hours, we came across a small hole in the wall restaurant located at 558 Queen St. West. Pat's Homestyle Jamaican Restaurant is this tiny but very friendly and casual looking restaurant. It can probably hold 6 people with their limited seating against the window and the wall. It is a great place for takeout. Their menu was small and simple, and included oxtails, jerked chicken, stew chicken, and other popular Jamaican/Carribean dishes. The best parts about tiny individually owned restaurants is the casual environment and the crazy delicious dishes. Also, the owner, Pat, is right there serving you his awesome dishes and making friendly chatter with his guests.(The night time picture didn't turn out too well, so I took this picture in the day time on the following day.)It was about 10:30 or 11pm and our eyes glittered when we saw noticed that they were still opened and serving dinner.

Adventures in Toronto: Tim Hortons
2009-05-21 16:31:00
Coffee and donuts! That's a great combination. Coffee and donuts for a quick breakfast or a snack. It's probably not the most healthy thing to be eating all the time, but I do love to treat myself to some donuts once in a while. French crullers, old fashion and chocolate donuts are my favorites. I also like ones with sprinkles. I usually try to avoid the ones with too much frosting, although pink frosted (Homer Simpson) donuts are quite awesome. I used to love the Boston Creme, but now I find the creme filling to be too sweet and heavy for me.In Toronto , I met Tim Hortons. Tim Hortons is this coffee/donuts fast food restaurant. I think of it as the Dunkin Donuts of Toronto, although Tim Hortons do have locations in Upstate NY and various other locations in the US. You can even download a list of US and Canada store locations from here and upload it to your GPS. Dunkin Donuts also have locations in Canada, but not in Toronto I believe.There's almost like one Tim Hortons on every b...

2009-05-20 18:20:00
On our first day in Toronto , we ventured to Chinatown for lunch. We had a craving for some authentic dim sum. The internet suggested the Bright Pearl Restaurant which is located at 346-348 Spadina Ave. They received many good reviews online and seems like the place to go for dim sum.They offered dim sum all day. They even have a Dim sum Happy Hour on weekdays from 9-11:30 am and 1:30-4 pm, where they only charged $1.88 CAD for small, medium, or large plates.We arrived around 1pm, but were a bit too hungry and excited to wait for happy hour. I think regular priced plates where about $3-$5-ish CAD, depending on the size. We only sat down for maybe 3 minutes and we ordered all this. These dishes kept us occupied for a while, until the clock struck 1:30pm and then it's all happy hour price.Here's a few of the classic dishes to order in Dim Sum, other than the usual hargow-suimai (shrimp dumplings) pairing.Tofu skin rolls with chickenSteamed roast pork buns (char siu bao)Pork in black ...

Article from NY Times on Sriracha
2009-05-20 04:08:00
I came across this article on Sriracha sauce from today's issue of the NY Times . This hot sauce is most commonly found in Vietnamese restaurants and used as a condiment for Pho (beef noodles). Sriracha sauce is a must-have in my kitchen. It is great for many dishes. Sriracha sauce can be added to dipping sauces to give it an awesome kick. I like to put Sriracha sauce and ketchup with my eggs! Sriracha sauce goes great on pizzas. It can also be added into pasta sauces to give it extra spicyness. So many possibilities!Here's the link to the article: A Chili Sauce to Crow AboutBy John T. Edge, May 19, 2009There was also a link to this recipe that uses Sriracha sauce.
