Grilled Godornices and more...

I almost forgot to post these photos. It's from the late birthday of my brother in law to be. We decided to have a BBQ for him. We had grilled godornices or cornish hens, guacamole, pico de gallo, and Mexican rice. I marinated the godornices in soy sauce, sprite, sugar, pepper and vinegar. This marinade would work with chicken too. It would have been better if the godornices marinated over night for more flavor, but we only had 3 hours to prep before the BBQ. It still came out good though. It just got charred a little too fast on the grilled because of the sugar O_o.

Semi-Homemade Spicy Korean Ramen ^_^

Brunch: Semi-homemade Spicy Korean Ramen with shrimp gyoza, mushrooms, chopped avocado, hard boiled egg and seaweed paper. I used an instant spicy Korean Ramen noodles from our local Korean super market and dressed it up with whatever I had in the fridge. It was very filling, delicious and looks pretty too!

How do you like to dress up your instant Ramen noodles?

Brunch Al Fresco

Last week, Kiko and I had a lovely brunch at our favorite breakfast place, Wildflower Cafe in Redondo Beach, Ca. Remember the best hot chocolate I kept talking about HERE? Of course, I had to order it again along with a huge bagel breakfast sandwich and a side of pancakes. Yum!

Banana and Walnut Pancake. 3 stack of fluffy pancakes stuffed with lots bananas and walnuts. Every bite had banana and nuts. I loved it! Oh, and I didn't eat it all by myself. I was very hungry, but not greedy ^_^. Kiko helped me finish it.

My egg and cheese bagel sandwich. It made me laugh when Kiko said, it's not "Becky type food". He's not used to seeing me order a dang sandwich! Fluffy eggs with swiss cheese on a toasted everything bagel with a little mayo. Very simple yet delicious. So good! 

My hot chocolate with whipped cream and Kiko's cappuccino. Just like last time, it was yummy and had the perfect temperature. We were able to enjoy it right away.

Kiko's breakfast sandwich. Eggs, real turkey bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, avocado on a croissant. I had a bite and it was a little better than mine lol...just because of the avocado lol. Should've gotten avocado too!

It was such a lovely day, we just had to dine al fresco.

I can't wait til we come back. Next time, I'm going to try other stuff :)

Chicken Salad with Nectarine and Avocado

It's that time again to cut back on the fattening food and watch what I eat. My wedding is 2 months away so I gotta make sure I fit the dress right? Oh and don't mind my last post on a buffet brunch. It was a loooong time ago. For the past week, I've been eating less carbs, sugar and fat. I hope I keep it up til the big day.

 I made this a big plate of chicken salad last week. It has shredded chicken, spinach, spring mix lettuce, nectarines, avocado in a light raspberry and pomegranate dressing. It was light yet filling at the same time. Yum!

El Torito Grill Sunday Brunch

These photos are suuuuper old, but I still want to share. We went to El Torito Grill on a Sunday. We wanted to grab a simple lunch, but we ended up with their big Sunday Brunch lol. We didn't know it was all they serve on Sunday morning til a little after noon so we pretty much had no choice. We didn't regret though. There was a variety of food to choose from and everything I had were great!

I didn't take a photo of the buffet station, but it was very clean. They had traditional Mexican and American breakfast, made to order tacos, seafood table, salads, pasta, desserts and etc.

Here's what we had...

I had to taste a little bit of everything O_o. Everything was very good, but my favorite would have to be the Tacos Al Pastor. So bomb!

Have you been to El Torito Grill Sunday Brunch?
