Spicy Champon Noodle @ H Mart


I had a casual dinner with a friend at H Mart, food court. I was craving for Korean food but somehow ended up with something else.


Spicy Champon $8.95
I am not sure this is Japanese or Korean, but it’s spicy and sweet enough to satisfy me.


Corn Cob for dessert

Brunch @ République

A friend and I went out for brunch. We knew this place would require us to wait in a line for 30 minutes to an hour.


The line was very long and intimidating.


In 35 minutes, we finally got in front of pastry showcase.


Doughnuts and breads look good.
Another 5 minutes wait. We ordered at the counter and seat ourselves with a numbered cup.


The signature interior with long communal tables in the center


“Courtyard” dining area in the back


Wine cellar on the second floor


Smoked Salmon Tartine $14, Green Juice $8, Omelette $17, Chai Tea $4

Overall, food is pretty good. Interior is cool. I am not sure if I want to wait in a line again. Parking is hectic too.

Molcajete Burrito @ Nina’s Mexican Food


He always searches good Mexican restaurants and found this one.


Complimentary Chips & Salsa


Molcajete Burrito (Asada) $9


This is so delicious. Good amount meat, moderately spicy sauce, cheese and avocado on top…well balanced all together.

He had a regular burrito and regretted not having this wet one. Of course, I shared with him, but wanted to have a whole thing 🙂 Yes, it was that good.
