Fresh Bites Title
Delicious food is good for the soul 💆🏻💕~

It has been a while since I posted about food. I’m still enjoying my meals and exploring new food options from time to time. This post highlights the top eateries I’ve visited in the past month.

Bon appétit!

Monzo

I’m not the type who likes to hang out around the downtown area. My coworkers convinced me to have dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Considering how I love uni, I couldn’t say no to uni udon! This bowl is an interesting concept where the broth is creamy (think of mac n’ cheese) and there are pieces of uni + ikura scattered around. I enjoyed savoring every bit of the uni udon but for that price, I rather have an uni bowl. However, I do appreciate the “outside the box” thinking. It makes everyday food seem more exciting. In addition to the uni udon, I ordered an ikura bowl. Why can’t all Japanese restaurants have this? My coworkers and I shared a couple of appetizers on the side: Beef Tataki & Scallop Carpaccio.

MidiCi

Piggybacking off the last paragraph, I’m open to new toppings when it comes to pizza as well. The newest addition to my “foodie inventory” is the bacon and eggs (BAE) pizza. I’m not really a fan of eggs but the BAE pizza does taste pretty good. A pomodorini (cherry tomato) pizza was also ordered and savored to the very last slice. This is probably my favorite between the two pizzas 😜.

Korean BBQ

My boyfriend and I had our Thanksgiving dinner at a Korean BBQ house. We were planning to eat crawfish and shrimp but found out the restaurant was closed. We had to go on Yelp and find a last minute substitution. Luckily, we were at the “boulevard of restaurants” so we didn’t have to take a detour at all. Even though my boyfriend doesn’t eat red meat, the menu had other selections that fit his diet 🎉🎉🎉.
P.S. The banchan is 💯.

Cove Bar

After months of trying out new things at Disney, my boyfriend and I finally returned to the Cove Bar yesterday. We ordered our classic favorites: lobster nachos for him & buffalo wings for me. A trip to the Cove Bar isn’t complete until you order some drinks from the bar 😜. The drink on the left is The Earthquake (his) and the right is The Funwheel (mine). I love how colorful the drinks are 🌈~

    Dude! I love this name for your food posts! Fresh Bites is such a cute name 😀

    Those pizzas sound yummy. They also look yummy. Homg, I could totally go for some non-American style pizzas 😀 I love the Italian ones because they are not as heavy and rich compared to the American ones.

    Huzzah for Korean BBQ! It’s always great when you come upon ones where the banchans are yummy 😀 I’ve had some KBBQ with subpar banchans, and those kind of ruined the experience for me.

    Glad to see a food post from you! Those have been missed ^^

    The name of the bacon and eggs pizza is cracking me up. XD I love the creative names that restaurants put on their menus. I’m not sure how I would feel about eggs on my pizza but it does sound like something that could be good. Some places make really good breakfast pizzas!

    Nancy you have me dying to go to the Cove Bar. It will be on my list if I ever make it out to Cali and visit Disneyland! Those lobster nachos look so good, and buffalo wings are always a good choice, too. The drinks are always so pretty and I love colorful drinks! 😛

    It is 9:30am and you have me craving so much food right now!

    Oh wow, Nancy, your posts always make me so hungry! All the food looks amazing as always. I could definitely eat those pizzas right now – they both look so tasty!

    Your Disney adventures always make me jealous! Those drinks though!

    That uni udon looks so good. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like that. I’ll definitely have to keep an eye out for it. I love savory food.

    (This reminds me, I finally tried out Lemonade! I totally love the food and concept!)

    oh. my. god. my eyes. are. burning. my stomach. is. grumbling. HOW DARE. YOU.

    your blog is so dangerous lol

    everything looks so tasty and it’s 22:46 here and i’m hungry i’m drooling and it’s your fault i blame you and your blog i can’t even type with a full stop now nancy how dare you xD

    i love ikura so much even though i’ve never ordered ikura don specifically. i usually order this sushi called hana ikura where the rice is wrapped around with salmon and topped with ikura. SO GLORIOUS. i just had sushi recently but after looking your photos, i’m CRAVING AGAIN.

    HOW DARE YOU. XD

    You know food is my soulmate. I don’t need no man~

    I don’t go to many Japanese restaurants – case in point, seafood which I’m allergic too – but I’ll be damned if that doesn’t sound delicious. I would definitely try the Beef Tataki, though!

    I snorted pretty loudly at “BAE” pizza. Pomodorini is a pretty good pizza – I’m actually going to check out this new pizza place near me on Sunday, so this has made me excited.

    I haven’t been to Korean BBQ in yonks! I could literally eat banchan all day everyday.Stay dreaming that KBBQ won’t make me fat if I ate it everyday 😆 What I wouldn’t give to go to Cove Bar, RIGHT NOW. Goddammit, you’ve made me hungry, lol!

    I’m glad that you were able to get out and try some new and different foods.

    I normally don’t like toppings on my pizza but that BAE pizza looks like something I might enjoy.

    I’d love to try those drinks, they look simply divine.

    Wow! Look at all that food. Just looking at the photos makes me hungry, haha. And yum! Udon and Korean BBQ. That’s great your boyfriend was able to find something to eat.

    I know sometimes Korean restaurants can be uncomfortable for certain people to eat at. I knew someone who was gluten free but the people at the Korean restaurant didn’t know what “gluten free” was and just hearing her story made me feel strangely guilty even though it’s not my fault lol.

    Sorry about the double post but forgot to add – yes! If you’re ever in Seattle, we should totally hang out <3

    My first three thoughts – Such a cute name for this series, so glad that I’m eating dinner while I read this, and where I live is seriously lacking in restaurant variety. In fact, a Panda Garden(?) just opened in the neighbouring town, but otherwise hamburgers are a dietary staple. 😛

  11. Pauline ☆ December 18, 2016 at 8:06 am

    CoveBar looks great – I remember you blogging about it previously! I always love returning to the restaurants that really captured my heart before xD Especially if it’s been a while or I’ve been trying to “explore” new things.

    You described that pizza so well Nancy 😭😂 I’m so tempted to have pizza for dinner tonight now xD

  12. Georgie ☆ December 28, 2016 at 12:01 am

    I tweeted not long ago about how I love blue curaçao in drinks! Both your drinks look like they got summin’ blue in them… yum yum. I love colourful drinks. I gotta admit, all the colourful drinks I’ve had have tasted good. None have tasted bad!

    The pizza looks amazing. I just saw Pauline’s comment and I want pizza now too, *cries*

    I went for Japanese BBQ last week with Nick! I’m the one who doesn’t eat red meat, but I totally went for the sashimi and soba and watched Nick eat beef. 😛
