The last few weeks have been, to say the least, a whirlwind. As fate/luck/the forces that be would have it I have found myself in LA where I’ve been offered my dream job!
In any case, it seemed like #Jessicaloha had a short revival and my last week in Hawaii/one week visiting NJ + NYC was a fun time to have several (actually, many) yolo meals and experiences.
Goat cheese chicken and waffles from Bru’s Waffle in LA
Taco plate from Tacos Por Favor
My first taste at Philz Coffee
The best pastrami sandwich I’ve ever had from Mickey’s Deli
When I landed in New Jersey, I came home to a great welcome home committee – including a lobster dinner from my grandma!
My sister brought home my favorite platter from The Halal Guys
I also jam packed a day in NYC to visit some of my favorite places and see some of my favorite people.
Lox breakfast from The Grey Dog
The view inside Chelsea Market
Delicious lychee ice tea from Takumi Taco
My favorite view of the city from my old office
Froyo with one of my childhood friends
Only in NYC
Had dinner at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park
Good crew at the Rooftop Bar
Treated my dad to his favorite pork chop at Emeril’s Chop House
And with my last 3 days back in Hawaii, I ate my heart out at my favorite places in Hawaii.
Ramen bowl from Lucky Belly
The lobster bake from Shokudo
Oreo honey toast from Shokudo
Tuna crispy rice from Shokudo
My last taste at poke
The last mai tai sunset
The last 4-course supper in #Hawaii: North Shore garlic shrimp with local veggies and avocado, Hawaiian boullibaise with Alaskan crab, lobster, & prawn, loco #foiegras moco with qual egg, and the signature coconut creme brulee with toffee crumble.
Holoholo from Kalesa
My favorite bubble tea (taro, almond, coconut black tea) from T Pumps!
And finally wrapped up my last weekend of funemployment at my first California hike and unlimited Korean BBQ.
And because I passed my written exam for the driver’s exam on the first try, I am now officially a California resident! Excited to share food finds, cheap eats recipes, and more as I start my next adventure in the Golden State!
Also, hopefully I can actually make posting a regular thing 😉
