Semi-Homemade Spicy Korean Ramen Noodles with Steak

Instant noodles are one of my favorite to cook when I'm lazy. It's quick, easy and pretty darn good. My favorite is a Korean brand spicy seafood instant Ramen. They are really, really spicy, but has good flavor. I pretty much just followed the directions in the back of the packaging and I add left over steak from the day before, hard boiled eggs and seaweed paper. It's a complete meal. 

Do you like my presentation? It's pretty noh? 

What is your favorite instant ramen noodles?

Sushi Rolls and Vegetable Dumplings

Kiko picked me up from work the other night and we got sushi rolls to go from our favorite sushi spot, Haru Sushi. I've mentioned this place a couple of times on this blog. It's located inside a Korean super market and everything is $4.99! It's not the best sushi ever, but for the price, it's pretty dang good and tasty. 

Here's what we got...

I also steamed some vegetable dumplings to go with the sushi rolls. I added lime and soy sauce. Yum!

Thanks for stopping by!

Steak and Potatoes

I gotta say, I'm not expert on grilling, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. I grilled some steak over the weekend and it came out pretty darn good!!! I marinated the meat over night with soy sauce and tequila lime dressing from Fresh and Easy and grilled it to a medium well. I like my steak a little pink. I also made some baked mashed potatoes to go with it. I baked a couple of Idaho potatoes for an hour, peeled off the skin, mashed it, added hot milk and butter and shredded cheese. It was the perfect side dish to go with the steak. 

How do you like your steak?

Filipino Spaghetti for Dinner

Made it for dinner a few days ago. It was yummmy!!!

I posted this photo on Facebook and a friend asked me what's the difference between Filipino spaghetti and regular spaghetti? Compare to traditional Italian spaghetti, Filipino spaghetti is usually made with ground pork. It is very sweet and peppery. We put sugar, banana ketchup, sliced hotdogs and pepper in the tomato sauce and a generous sprinkle of shredded cheese on top. I grew up eating this kind of spaghetti and it's my ultimate comfort food. In fact, it's my all time favorite food!

Last Day of School Potluck...Soul Food

I've said it so many times how much I love potlucks parties. It's such a great way to get together with friends and celebrate an occasion. We had an awesome potluck at work a few days ago as a farewell/graduation party for our 5th graders. I'm so excited for them to move on to middle school. They will do great!

As always, we had the same delicious soul food at our potluck.

Here's what we had...

Albertson's Fried Chicken. In case you didn't know, Albertsons grocery store makes really good fried chicken. They are crunchy, super moist and not too greasy.

Homemade Mac and Cheese. There's nothing more comforting than this. It was creamy and super cheesy. Love it!

Hot Links in bbq sauce from Chef Marylin's Soul Food Express. We always get hotlinks from this place. It's peppery and tangy! 

Uncle Ben's Rice 

Ofcourse, I made my special super yummy and fatty Spinach Dip. My co-workers always request it whenever we have potlucks. See my  recipe HERE.

My favorite homemade Broccoli Salad. This salad is so simple yet so good. 

Homemade Ham Hock Green Beans and Potatoes. These are legit green beans. Made with love by one of my old co workers who came to visit. Soooo good!

And look, I'm such a great friend. I divided some of my dip into small containers to give away to my other co-workers ^_^.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

The Stinking Rose, A Garlic Restaurant

I love garlic with a passion. That's why I was so excited when my friend invited me to her graduation dinner at The Stinking Rose, a garlic restaurant. I've known about this place for the longest time, but never had the chance to try it until last week. I love it. The decor is very eclectic, the service is great and the food was amazing. It' super garlicky just the way I like it. Not the best place for first dates because your breath will stink for hours haha!

Oh and the price is quite expensive. Expect to pay $20 a plate for an entree, $35 and up for steak and $15 and up for a simple pasta dish. Also, their tables are quite small and the chairs are very uncomfortable. With 12 people, our food was crammed on the table. Get a booth instead!

Here's what we had...

We went with a big group so we ordered a few appetizers to share.

Complementary Garlic Foccacia Bread and Bagna Calda, oven roasted garlic in a bath or olive oil, butter and a hint of anchovy. It's a yummy spread on the bread.

They also have a garlic relish with herbs that you can eat with the bread. It's raw garlic. I love it!

Garlic Fries. Can't go wrong with fried potatoes, garlic, herbs and Parmesan cheese.

Calamari. This is probably my least favorite. It was bland. I've had better.

Kiko had the Prawns Pasta. Huge prawns in a spicy garlic red pepper sauce. It has so much shrimp and the sauce was a bit sweet and smoky. Soooo freakin' good! 

I had the  Silence of the Lamb Shank. Fall of the bone meat and super garlicky mashed potatoes and cream of spinach. Love it!

We will definitely go back!

Have you been to The Stinking Rose?

Sunday Grub at my Moms..

Whenever I come visit my moms, I always end up eating more than I should. Gaaahhh....It's either my mom has some delicious Filipino food waiting for me or my aunt or cousin would bring food from a restaurant we like.

Here's what I had last Sunday...

On my way home, I saw a taco truck a few blocks away from my moms so I decided to stop by. I didn't have to, but I had mad craving for Mexican food. I got Huarache Al Pastor. Huarache means slipper in English. It has marinated pork, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, queso fresco and crema. It was really good, but I wished it would have been bigger. 

When I got home, these bomb-shrimp from The Boiling Crab was waiting for me. Gaaahhh...Never should've ate the Huarache if I knew we were having this. I still ate some with rice though. It's boiled shrimp with the whole "shabang", butter, spices and lots of garlic!

And we also had these small fried fish that my mom cooked. I forgot what they are called. But there were delicious too by itself or with white rice.

What do you usually eat on Sundays?

Weekend Korean BBQ!

I'm not much of a grill person, but I'm trying to get the hang of it. I feel like grilling cooks the food quicker and much more flavorful. I grilled some beef short ribs on Saturday. I bought the meat at a local Korean market. I marinated them over night in soy sauce, pineapple juice,  rice wine vinegar and sugar. They came out really delicious! 

We also had some Korean Rice Cakes. Those are the orange looking thing in the photo above. They are sticky and chewy in a spicy sauce.

Pollo Campero

Last Sunday, I stopped by Pollo Campero to pick up some food before I visited my mom and grandma. It's been a long time since I've been to Pollo Campero nd I was quite excited! I ordered fried chicken with a side of black beans and rice and yuca fries. Everything was yummy!

The fried chicken was juicy and tender and had the right amount of seasoning!

Have you had Pollo Campero before?
