(mint chocolate chip with snicker doodle cookies)
Hello all, it’s starting to get colder and colder every day, but yunno what? It’s never too cold for an ice cream sandwich because they are filled with sweetness, love, and lots and lots of sugar. There’s this place called CREAM that sells ice cream sandwiches. But they’re not just your average neapolitan creepy ice cream truck ice cream sandwich, it’s so much more. You get to pick the type of cookie you want, from chocolate chip to sugar to snicker doodle, etc. then you pick your choice of ice cream. The cookie is still warm and they squish your scoop of ice cream between the two cookies of your choice to create a cute little sandwich of amazingness. Oh and then they put it in a lil’ paper bag for you, which I think adds to the experience. There’s a CREAM in Berkeley and some other towns in the bay area including a new one that recently opened in SF that I’m psyched about! If you haven’t had one yet, then try to visit a CREAM and join the #creamnation. ❤
Until next time,
Hey guys! Sorry it’s been a while, finals are next week and I’ve been pretty busy with school work. Alsooo, I was sick for a little last week and my dad brought me some Pho. If you don’t know what Pho is, it’s a Vietnamese soup filled with white noodles, amazing broth, a variety of meats, and extras like bean sprouts, jalapeno peppers, basil, and lime. I can’t even describe it in words, the taste is very unique. It’s probably one of my favorite soups, I don’t think I could ever get tired of it. *heart eye emoji* And it’s so good for a cold, I mean really any hot soup is, but it’s a bonus since it’s so delicious. There’s tons of Pho places in San Fran and scattered around the bay area. So if you’re a pho newbie and you’re just drivin’ around and see a pho restaurant then GO! Knock yourself out (not literally) and have yourself some delicious soup that you will never forget.
Alright see you guys soon! Oh, and comment what you think of food pages on instagram? Should I make one for foodyas?
Hey food lovers! Alright so I know, if you live in the bay area you may already know about this place already because it’s quite popular, but you can never go wrong with a little Sol food. Their main restaurant is in downtown San Rafael and they have a few smaller places, one near the main restaurant and another in Mill Valley.
Sol Food is a Puerto Rican cuisine that gives a very comfortable and fun vibe. Every time I go there everyone there is smiling and enjoying their food (how could you not!) I still plan on getting other dishes that I haven’t tried yet, but the ones I have tried have been amazing.
The bistek dish and sandwich are both delicious. Also, with the dishes comes a salad, rice, beans, and plantain. I usually get the garlic plantain which are so simple, yet tasty as ever. I am also OBSESSED with Sol Food’s salad dressing. It’s a light oily dressing with lemon and garlic. I love it so much I always have a bottle at home so I can put it on my own salad (You can buy the dressing in the restaurant at the counter or next door at the main restaurant.) Alright I could go on forever about Sol Food, but two last things that are a have-to would be: the “limonada fresca” and the plaintain chips. Their lime drink is wonderful, with just the right amount of fizz and sweetness. The plaintain chips are something different that I like and don’t see as many people order. They taste very similar to potato chips and serve for a great snack.
Okay, see you guys soon and leave some comments about Sol Food if you’ve ever been or plan on going!
