North Square Restaurant & Lounge

One word: Good
Two words: Nice food
Three words: I'll come back :P

It's nice to sit next to a window, so my photos come out really beaufiful, and I love the food here

Don't you just love the golden color of this olive oil?! (♥O♥)

Shrimp Ceviche, cold & sour, perfect for the summer

Lobster and crab cakes, not much taste of lobster, but crab meat was big, tho not much taste of crab...

Crust Walu, a Hawaiian "buttery" taste fish, moist & solid texture

Filet Mignon au Poivre, juicy and tender inside out!

Chocolate Mousse Cake with bitter chocolate ice cream & walnuts.

And the Brownie Sundae, I like how chewy the brownie was.

Nice meal, then head over to a show~ :D

Caffe Del Mar

It's an Italian restaurant, but the portion of food is huge! We were here early because we were going to catch a show later on, neither me or my bf could finish the food...

Common appetizer - Caprese. I had this at another place at noon, and I had to say the caprese here is not very special ╮(╯_╰)╭

My Tortellini with prosciutto, dry tomato & peas. Large portion and I liked the sourness from the dry tomato and the sweetness from the fresh peas ♥

The Root Beer Steak, overcooked on the outside, but still tender inside.

Dessert Club Chikalicious

Let's have something healthier than chocolate!
Chikalicious now have the Snowlicious with different flavors.

My favorite - the Green tea deluxe with azuki bean. The motcha flavor is very original ♥ And there is cream in the center, little surprise

Here is my little blue Christmas tree, I mean blue-raspberry flavored snowlicious. This is rather plain compare to the Green tea deluxe. :/

Next the rose macaron, completely sensational!! The aroma of rose spills into your mouth every bite. Can't wait to try their other flavors next time ♥

The cupcakes I didn't get to try this time, but also look very tempting!

City Bakery

The chocolate drink that taste like no others!
The best yet, it's served cold (finally finally!! )

The hot one is good but not for summer, summer should have this frozen hot chocolate!
Taste so different than Max Brenner, and much thicker than Serendipity.
You won't go back to the regular hot chocolate after having this!

Large and comfortable place to chill ヽ( ≧▽≦)ノ

I like the food here ♥

There are outdoor seating and indoor seating, but consider this hot and muggy weather, I prefer the cool and comfortable indoor.

The complimentary delicious flat bread, yum ♥

The Scallops Crudo with mango, chiles & basil. It tasted like ceviche, fresh and good.

The sweet creamy corn soup with crabmeat! (≧▽≦)♥

The Tortellini Verde, stuffed with spinach, cover with swiss chard & tomato.

The Bistecca Porcini, a very juicy ribeye

Finish the meal with a warm volcano chocolate with nutella sauce. ♥

And btw, check out their rooftop bar with a different kind of view!

City Cafe

Recently I went to this City Cafe 3 times in 2 months, I may as well write about it. However, I always forgot to take pictures >__< (aw... the double lobster ) And this time too, finally remember to take out my camera half way through the meal...

English menu also available :D
The mushroom beef, beef was tender.

Beef fried rice, my brother's favorite!

Shia-Men rice noodle, mildly spicy

Didn't order a lot this time, but they have a deal of $19.99 double lobster when order 3 family style dishes ($25). A totally valued meal for party of four!

And this gorgeous sky I saw when leaving the restaurant! (no ps) 綺麗な~~

It's so hot in Las Vegas right now. I'm staying at New York New York. Wait....I'm not in Vegas?!

If you are stuck in NY (like me...) and losing your appetite in this steamy heat, this will be a good choice for a meal!

The Hiyashi Chuka - cold noodle from Sapporo (Summer Season Only). Yup, not cold udon, not cold soba, the noodle is chewy and COLD~~ Delicious mix with the sauce. Sometimes they ask you if you want the regular or sesame sauce, I personally prefer the sesame sauce ♥

It comes with ham, egg, fishcakes, cucumbers, tomato, corn, pepper and seaweeds. This is not enough for you? Order it with extra noodles!

Spacious place for group & nice service!

What a tall ceiling

The Thai Chicken Empanadas - fried dumplings with mango on top

The Thai Shrimp Lettuce Wraps, moderate spicy.

My favorite roll - The Unagi Masago, yummy!

The Volcano roll, it was good, but too plain after the unagi masago roll >__<

My another favorite of the night, the Scallops al Mojo de Ajo. Fresh and tender scallops!

The Wagyu Skirt Steak Churrasco was juicy and the fries were good, you need to taste them yourself :P

The Chile Barbecued Salmon, I was distracted at this point.. I couldn't remember the taste, but I got a well excuses..

One of my friends was announcing she's getting married!! Congratulation to her! And the waiter heard us and wrote this on one of our dessert plates, nice job!
This was the Mexican Chocolate Tart with cinnamon whip

The Dulce de Leche Pudding, rich caramel pudding infused with lychee, and the coconut ball on the side

Last but not least, the Churros with it's dark chocolate-cinnamon dipping sauce

Good foods and good friends and good news, what a busy night ヽ(≧▽≦)ノ
