FAB DAY AT THE FAIR!

Sorry I’ve been MIA!  My WordPress App on my phone didn’t seem to let me upload photos directly from my phone to WordPress (It still doesn’t), so I haven’t been able to post much.  I’m not sure what it is; could possibly be because my M8 takes huge photos and it will not upload via my App…but it allows me to upload my photos to my Google Photos/Picasa, and then share from my Picasa to my WordPress App Media Files, and then from there I can add my media files to my posts.  Its so many frikkin steps just to post right now it’s annoying.  I’ve also been quite a busy boy because of EDC in Vegas, moving to a new place the week after, 4th of july, and another trip to Vegas this past week.  I’ll be posting about all these things since I have so many pictures!

Anyway, a couple weeks ago Pooh and I went to Del Mar Fair with our buddy David.  We had so much fun and ate so much deep fried disgustingly bad for you food…it was amazing!

I really just wanted to go for the Turkey Leggs…but I had that and a root beer float, a banana split, grilled corn, fried twinkies, a waffle dog, italian sausage, and a swirl potato thing.  I was still afterwards!  I love fair food…so happy Pride SD is coming up.  All these food stands are usually there!

BDAY WEEKEND

I’m gonna be 1 year older this weekend!  I’m very happy to be in good health, in an amazing relationship, and have a stable income.  I can feel myself getting stronger both physically and mentally.  I think I’m in a good place…I’ve got everything I need and want; I’m happy.

I’m gonna be celebrating in LA this weekend (Friday through Sunday.)  We booked a nice fancy shmancy room at the SLS, made dinner reservations at Hakkasan Beverly Hills, and will be raging the bars of West Hollywood.  I can’t wait!

NEW YORK ADVENTURE PT2 – MAHARLIKA FILIPINO MODERN RESTAURANT

imageimage

image

If we didn’t miss our flight we never would have been able to try the amazingness that is Maharlika!  We haven’t been to a modern Filipino restaurant before so we were excited to try it!  We heard a lot of good things and were impressed by what we saw on Yelp.  I’ve also been craving some Filipino food and man was it a treat!

The Ube Waffles and Crispy Fried Chicken were incredible! The waffles were served with this insane bagoong and chives butter and a heavenly apricot maple syrup. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The chicken was yummy too…I mean…fried chicken and garlic fried rice!?!? Omg. The next time a friend from New York comes to visit SD…I will pay you to pack that shit up in a giant Tupperware and bring it with you!!!

Sizzling Sisig hot skillet with an egg mixed in and served table side. It’s food that plays with all of your senses. The sound of the sizzle as the waiter approaches your table. The smell wafts slowly towards you and takes you in. I’d get to the other senses but you get my point. Pair this orgasm in a skillet with garlic fried rice and you’re done. Just Done. DONE!

NEW YORK ADVENTURE – MORIMOTO RESTAURANT

The only place I really wanted to go to on our New York trip was Morimoto’s restaurant. Ever since I first started getting into food and blogging it’s been on the top of my bucket list of things I must do before I shuffle off this mortal coil.  I was excited, of course, to go to New York since I’ve never been before, but finally getting to go to Morimoto was the icing on the cake. 

image

We started off with some fancy cocktails….of course.  :]

image

We started with the Toro tartare.  This slab of beauty is garnished with caviar that you spread throughout and I paired with a dipping sauce and 6 toppings.  You dip it in a lil bit of this and then you top it with a lil bit of that…so delicious!  I was so overwhelmed that I wasn’t paying attention to the waiter when he was explaining the different sauces and toppings.  Each topping had different flavor profiles and complimented the toro in different ways …a definite must try! I wish it was a bigger slab!!!

image

Ten hour cooked pork belly with congee and soy scallion jus – a modern twist to traditional Kakuni. Sweet and savory melt in your mouth in perfect harmony and just when you think its rich flavors are done, you cut into crispy textures that pull you back in! Loooved it!

Crispy rock shrimp tempura.  Pooh wanted to order it and I wasn’t quite sure why.  With so many unique and interesting items on the menu I was like…shrimp tempura? Really? I was pleasantly suprised by how amazeballs these things were! One was glazed with spicy kochujang sauce that blows hot wings out of the water; the other had wasabi aoli…I was eating these things like butter popcorn topped with crack. So addicting!

Pooh ordered the Duck Duck Duck. It’s ingredients say it all…foie gras croissant, roasted duck, a poached duck egg, and 2 dipping sauces. Zomg.  It was very rich and fatty…heaven.

I ordered the roasted maine lobster topped with veggies, keffir lime, and green curry sauce. So many incredible flavors yet they didn’t take away from the subtle richness of the lobster. My heart melted. *swoon*

Pooh and I had an incredible meal.  I was smiling the entire time!  I cannot wait to come back and try more things!  Although it ain’t cheap, i highly recommended checking it out on your next trip to New York!

DATE DAY

image

Pooh and I had an incredible date day this past Monday.   We went to C-Level for lunch.  We’ve never been before and heard a lot of good things from our co-workers so we decided to give it a try.  Gotta love San Diego’s sunny winter weather!  It was so nice out and the view was great!  I got some fancy-shmancy fish and chips to go down with their C-level seafood Bloody Mary. It had a frikkin crab claw!

After lunch we went to get some macarons for me and frozen yogurt for him.  :)  ‘Lette just opened up at UTC in La Jolla so…why not?!  :)

image

 

By the time we were done walking around it was just about traffic hour so we figured…why not just keep driving north a bit and just hang out until traffic dies down?  So we went to Carlsbad outlets….grabbed some glassware at Crate & Barrel to replace ones broken during drunken weekends past.  Lol

image

 

On our way back down we stopped somewhere in Del Mar to watch the sunset.  Never really watched the sunset before.  It was beautiful.

image

 

 

We got back to San Diego and Pooh didn’t want to end the night just yet.  We went to Mo’s and grabbed a couple drinks.

image

image

 

Ok a lot of drinks…lol.  We got the drunken munchies so, with a Walgreens right across the street, we thought we’d test out these awesome pills.  Lactose relief!  Zomg I was soooooo happy to be eating cheese again.  Best dinner ever!!!
