Steak!


Who says steak is food for only men! I love my meat and I love my steak especially with A1 sauce! Of course I can't finish this giant piece but it was very delicious as left over :). (I'm a big left over eater)

I only get to eat steak every once in awhile so when I do I  go crazy!

Pho at home


How can you say no to a hearty bowl of Pho! I know I can't! I love eating this during the cold weather because it heats your body up and also soothes.

It also brings a bit of comfort to the heart :)

Pinellas's First Food Truck Rally



I think I'm officially Food Truck Rally pooped out. I'm certainly not as excited and there wasn't much to try out. There were lots of the same trucks and nothing too eye popping. I will have to say though, if you've never been to one that you must go! It's a really fun experience if you've never had food from a truck before.

With that said, here was my day~




My friend and I split a Chicago dog from Taste of Chicago and it was sadly a disappointment. Everything was good except the "dog" which seem to be just a regular hot dog. The one I had in Chicago was just amazing. I usually don't eat hot dogs, but give me a specialty dog and I won't say no.



Next on the list was Michelle Faedo's deviled crabs. I didn't enjoy it as much as my first time, but they weren't bad at all. I wish there was more crab meat vs. crust. My friend Gabby also decided to try some Banana Whip from Gone Banana. I'm really not a banana person but she enjoyed it. It was a really creamy banana in a cup topped with your choice of topping (which she got chocolate peanut butter). If you love  bananas than this is the place! I can tell you that it's super fresh and very bananas.



This was probably my most yummiest thing I've ate that day next to some popsicles from Whatever Pops. We got some beef and cheese empanadas from Mr. Empanada and they were so darn good! Super hot and oozing with filling. I also tried the crab one which I wasn't so crazy for and Gabby bought some apple ones which she said was really good!




We ended the rally with some tacos from the oh so famous Taco Bus! You can't even say anything bad about this place because they are so darn good. I got a flour taco with shredded beef and Gabby got the same thing with steak. I love Taco Bus :)!

Over all I wasn't that amazed with this rally. I wished they picked a different location or warned us about the dirt filled location. I came back with some really dirty feet. My favorite rally would probably be the second food rally in Tampa. The area was really big and there were tons of trucks from all type of food, sushi, bbq, and so on. But that's okay! I'm glad my friend Gabby was able to enjoy her first food rally! The next one is in December in St. Pete. I'm not sure if I'll go but I guess it'll depend on who will be there!

Enjoy~

Chao Long - Seasons Cafe & Bakery



Not going to lie. I think I'm addicted to this place. It's pretty much halfway from my house and school so I'm there all the time and they always have special meals or deals on drinks!

Super friendly workers and just a nice place to chill. I couldn't ask for more!

I tried their chao long and liked it! It was perfect timing too because I was (am) still sick from my flu shot. I am also in love with their yogurt boba!

TRY IT

Largo's Stone Crab Festival

Tonight's preview...

Last minute plans with my friend Danny again (which I love) to Largo's Stone Crab Festival... (sadly, no stone crab for me since they ran out~) but we did get some snow crab :D

(pictures from instagram)



Also tried my first fish taco :) and it was yummy!


Got a drink from this BikeCaffe (super cute)


and came home to my new iphone 4s cases :D
yes I love cute stuff :)

I don't have much pictures from my camera because I failed at focusing in the dark and I was busy eating! I love love this BikeCaffe though. Such a cute little cafe! AND I love seafood :D ESP crabs!



___________________________________________________________

I had a fun time at this little side street festival. It wasn't crazy but it was fun to walk up and down eating and looking around. I tried my first fish taco and it was good, the lemon juice probably made it even more tastier over the shrimp scampi taco (Danny's). After walking around for a bit we settled down for some snow crab and seafood gumbo. The crab was pretty good, it was cooked perfectly and the meat was sweet. 

I also had a fun time teaching Danny how to perfectly get her yummy crab meat out in one piece. The seafood gumbo was sadly a disappointment. It was really heavy and just a glob of goo. Everything was mixed in so well telling one item from another was hard. There was no contrast of flavor or texture so in the end the crab got the full attention. 

Oh and the BikeCaffe is the cutest thing ever!! They have a pretty big menu and take cards! 

I love food festivals :D
Thanks Danny for inviting me out~

Excuse me...

While I'm suffering from my first flu shot. I got it a few weeks ago and am now suffering.
Oh I feel gross but it'll be over soon!

Here's some grilled pork over rice and some yummy soup for my throat from Seasons Cafe & Bakery!






I also got my new iphone 4s so that's pretty exciting! I haven't really been playing with it because all the sickness and laziness. I ordered some cute hello kitty cases so I can't wait til those comes in!

<--- first self picture using my new phone :) + my sick face haha
