Wolfgang Puck Cafe

I'm putting up more pictures from the holidays that I forgot about. I can't believe I haven't talked about Wolfgang Puck, because that was the restaurant where I ate the most during that period. Kuya, John, Tintin and I spent one Tuesday at Universal Studios, and it was apparently the perfect time to go to that theme park. There were hardly any people around, and we even got to go on rides consecutively. After a whole day of tripping on rides and having pictures taken with Shrek and Mr. Incredible, we went to eat at the Wolfgang Puck Cafe which was right outside Universal Studios, since Tintin said it was on her list of places to go.

Everything we ate there was good, from the bread, to the fried shrimp appetizer, to the pizzas, pasta, and finally the tiramisu and chocolate cake. Talk about having a distended stomach. It probably took me two days to digest everything I ate.

Hof's Hut

Before I go on with my food stories from New Orleans, I just saw a few pictures that I wanted to put from the holiday season that I spent in LA. As a refresher, most of my family flew in to LA for the holidays in December. Since we were rarely all together, this became an excuse to eat pretty much whatever we wanted. There is a Hof's Hut near Jerick's house, so one morning we decided to have brunch there. They do serve breakfast, but they also serve a lot of meat, like burgers and chicken. But as always, I found something to eat.

Fish Tacos

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

My bros and my sisses-in-law

I had fish tacos, which is always a reliable fallback in meat places in California. And, I had spinach and artichoke dip. Artichokes (and therefore artichoke dip) are very expensive in the Philippines. This is why I always order this dip when I can while I'm still here.

New Orleans Food Trip

I recently went to New Orleans for spring break, and the reason why I chose to go to that city for my last school break in the US is, I have heard and read so much about how great the food was there. When I arrived, I immediately asked a cab driver about any restaurants he could recommend, and he said "This is New Orleans, you can't go wrong anywhere!" And I found out he was right. Anywhere I ate (and I didn't exactly have a game plan), the food was excellent.

I just stayed four days there, but if I had stayed any longer, I would have gained so much weight. I never even had space for dessert because the appetizers and main courses just filled me up. Usually I don't finish the main course so I could have dessert, but I just had to this time because the meals were just so good. I left each restaurant with my stomach extended to its fullest, but I definitely had no regrets. I will post some photos of the food very soon.
