´╗┐Sushi Kyotatsu

On our way to Minneapolis, we had a 3 hour layover at Narita.  And we spent it wisely by having sushi!   This is a plate of assorted nigiri which I shared with my 2 other colleagues.  If I had my way, I would have demolished this plate on my own! Haha  

Team Dinners in Minneapolis

I had the privilege to go to Minneapolis a few weeks back to finally meet colleagues I’ve been working with for nearly 2 years.  The meetings we had were all very fruitful and was always capped off by lovely team dinners. Dinner 1 – Timber Lodge Steakhouse   This dinner involved all 3 team, Delivery, Products…

ZZQ Smokehouse

Some good ol’ American BBQ from ZZQ Smokehouse in Minneapolis. I had their beef brisket with coleslaw and fries. Loved it!     

At Beecher’s Handmade Cheese

How can you not visit a cheese shop making their own cheese curds by the window?  Beecher’s Handmade Cheese was so inviting that crowds would wait in line.  Lucky for my brother and I, we went on a weekday so there was hardly any line!  Woohoo!   My brother got a Grilled Flagship cheese sandwich…

Hotdogs

A hotdog in its barest form.  Had this from The Frankfurter (which was highly recommended by our guide from the Argosy Harbor tour).  While I ended up adding ketchup and sweet pickle relish I really don’t mind my hotdogs served naked like this.      Oh, and here’s a view of the Seattle Skyline from the said…

Five Guys

My first and only burger during this trip was at Five Guys in Seattle.  I was told it was one of the more famous burger joints in Seattle which was most of the time full. It just so happened that went to Five Guys past 9PM (after picking up my brother from the airport), hence…

A bite from Cupcake Royale

Trekking up the hill from Pike Place Market was no joke.  Especially for someone as out of shape as I am.      But what kept me motivated was knowing that after that treacherous uphill, there would be a cupcake waiting for me… no, make that 3 cupcakes! I opted to order the basic flavors…

Brunch at Maximilien’s

This deserved its own post.   For my second day in Seattle, we went to the very, very famous Pike Place Market for brunch.    Tucked inside is Maximilien’s which did not disappoint!     Not only was the view spectacular, but the food was also!  On Sunday’s they only served items from the Le Brunch…

Breakfast in the U.S.A.

Breakfast at our hotel in Minneapolis consisted of mainly sausage (whether patties or links), breads, eggs (that seemed to come out from a box), cereal and some cheese.  So for 3 days straight, my plate was mostly like this.  While it didn’t taste too bad, I could not have it again on our last few…

A Walleye and some fries

A walleye is a very popular fish in Minneapolis whose flesh is somewhat firm and meaty.  I had this version of walleye from TwinCity Grill in the Mall of America served like fish and chips.  Like any other fish and chips, the walleye was battered and deep fried (walleye can be served so many other…

Cheese Curds

These are fried cheese curds. It kind of reminded me of mini mozzarella sticks and it was all sorts of addicting. This was from Pat’s Tap.
