8 Things about Food & Me

December 22, 2016 Toronto, ON, Canada

Thank you Christienne for the tag. She knows me well already! I do love food so here goes my 8 Things about Food and Me.

Q: What is your favorite cuisine? & How often do you eat it?

I have lots since I always have a rotation of cravings. I try not to eat the same type of cuisine all the time. I love mixing it up! 

But if I can pick a couple, I would say Japanese and Vietnamese.  I've been trying to control my sushi intake lately so when I go out to eat Japanese food, I try to order other items. I never get sick of eating Japanese food. There's always something new to try.

And Vietnamese food because my boyfriend loves it and we have pho at least once a week. Although lately, I'm more obsessed with ordering vermicelli bowls.

Q: Home cooking or Dining out?

Definitely home cooking. I love going to the grocery store (my happy place) and picking out fresh ingredients and cooking at home. I especially love doing this on weekends when I have more free time to cook more complicated and time consuming dishes. A is a good cook so I usually help him in the kitchen but when it comes to seafood and other Asian dishes, I cook it myself. 

Q: Do you have any family recipes?

No, my family doesn't have any guarded recipes :( I think one of my sister's is compiling her own though. She's a very good cook! 

Q: What is your favourite restaurant?

Mine are scattered all over the world and most of the time, I don't know the names anymore. For me what stands out more are the dishes, not necessarily the restaurant. I barely go to restaurants because of the decor or ambiance. I'm only there for food ;)

Q: What's the strangest thing you've ever eaten?

Bulls penis! I kid you not...my friend actually ordered it at Kenka bar in NYC. He passed it around for us to sample too. It was gross. 

Q: Coffee or Tea?

Tea all the way! I love all kinds of tea...ginger, chamomile, green tea, oolong tea. You name it! 

Q: Name one food you really dislike?


Q: What's dream food experience?

Well, I would love to go to San Sebastian and do a tapas crawl!! or have all my favourite dishes in one room so I can stuff myself silly (without gaining weight of course).

Please feel free to answer the questions above so I can read your answers too. 


  1. It's funny but I feel like you can actually learn a lot about a person via their food habits and tastes. I am also a huge lover of Japanese and Vietnamese but I also could not live without Mexican. And I love cooking once I am actually in the kitchen, but going grocery shopping in the city is always such a hassle because you can't just load everything into a car and can only buy as much as you can carry. Plus ordering in is so cheap here in Berlin that I end up doing it quite often!

    1. I also have my fair share of take-outs and eating out especially when I get so lazy to cook.

  2. My family doesn't have much in terms of guarded recipes either. It's nice to know I'm not the only one. :]
