What I Ate: California

As this was a work-related trip, most of the weekdays were spent in the office. I did not get out of my way to dine at specific places, I mostly went with whatever the group felt like eating. A few times I ventured out and grabbed takeout from the places near my hotel.

At Hyatt House, breakfast selection is small but good. I loved the biscuits and gravy; I don’t remember having anything similar that was that good. I also discovered that people like their breakfast eggs with salsa in these parts! I do enjoy a big meal when I’m up extra early in the morning. Needless to say all these calories showed on my trip photos.. I looked huge!

I am so glad we took time to check out Blue Bottle at Mint Plaza. I would go so far and say that it is the best coffee I have had! I still can remember how the latte coursed ever so smoothly down my throat. It was a cup of silky caffeinated goodness. Blue Bottle recently came to Asia– Tokyo, specifically, and I read somewhere that the lines are always crazy long.

I have tried Five Guys Burger, In-N-Out, and Habit Burger and I must say Habit Burger was the best so far.

Mr. Jones food porn

Pictures taken on a few trips to Mr. Jones. Love the comfort food and generous servings. And they have the best chocolate malt milkshakes!

Fish and Chips

Buttermilk fried chicken with biscuits and potato puree

Double Eggs Benny. I love Eggs Benedict and sadly this is a bit disappointing, because it seems like the sauce is not freshly prepared hollandaise

Steak and eggs and rosemary potatoes

Tapa and Garlic overload. Tapsilog is my ultimate comfort food, and these tender strips of sirloin are the best I’ve ever had.

Challah french toast with Nutella and raspberry preserves, caramelised bananas, crispy bacon, whipped cream, and maple syrup.

Wicked Truffled Mac n Cheese. Four kinds of macaroni, canadian bacon, portobello mushroom, drizzled with truffle oil. The truffle oil made this dish taste so earthy.
