Bouffe MTL: Chez les Sud-Coréens

Back in October 2017, I received a call from a random number which I usually don’t pick up because I simply expect them to leave a voicemail if it’s important. And then I heard that ding – 1 unread voicemail. At the exact same time, I received a text message from my cousin Frank (manager of Jangteu)…

Kinka Izakaya

In the summery days of Montreal, the most ideal way to spend your time with close ones is on a terrace for a nice 5 à 7. That is exactly what my friend and I did in August when the sun was setting earlier at night and we knew that Fall was soon to come….

Chef’s Table: Crenn & Bottura

A few days ago, I started watching something I had kept on My List forever on Netflix – Chef’s Table. I finally browsed through the description of each episodes of the series to see which one I’d tackle first. Dominique Crenn. Season 2, Episode 3. An artistic chef from Brittany (France) started her professional cooking career in…

A Night in Paris

  A few weeks ago, my friend Chelsea asked if I wanted to attend one of her sister’s cooking classes at Provigo Le Marché. I did not even hesitate for a moment and immediately jumped at the opportunity! Ever since, I had been counting down the days for this specific night. I knew that tonight would…

Kaitlyn’s Meet & Greet and Korean Night

On October 30th 2015, my beautiful niece Kaitlyn was born 🙂   When my nephew was born just under 2 years ago, both my friends Chelsea and Josh were invited over to my sister’s to see the newborn. He was just a few days old! This time around with bébé Kaitlyn, we turned it into…

Pizza Night

I promised a pizza blog. Here it is. Pizza pictures. And a blog. 🙂 A la casa di Sarah Basically, my friends and I planned a pizza night at Sarah’s house. Her parents were kind to allow a bunch of us to take over their house and fire up the oven! Sarah had picked up…

Apple Picking

Hi hungry readers, I have yet to post some scrumptious pictures of food. But not just yet! In October, just after our last food truck event, my friends and I went apple picking at the Quinn Farm in Île-Perrôt. It’s a small island right near Montreal. From my home, it’s actually just about a 20-min…

Le Slang

Last week, I had dinner with my best friend from high school to catch up on things. I hadn’t seen her in half a year! She’s one of those friends who is really really close and knows you inside out, but you never really get the chance to see very often. We’ve been friends since 2002. We…

Pikolo and friends

Yesterday was just one of those rare occasions where my friends and I spontaneously went out on a coffee date in the middle of our busy hectic lives. Moments like such are the rarest and most appreciated ones ❤ Seeing my friends is in itself a therapy session. Taking a break from things that need to get done and living…

La Croissanterie Figaro

A while ago, my friend Chelsea introduced me to a nice Parisian café in Outremont, Montreal. It was love at first sight. It was as though they chipped of a piece of Paris and placed it on that block. The waiters and waitresses speak mostly French. Adds to the whole Parisian feel.  The music they…
