Finally, after months of waiting and praying, Uchi decided to invite me in to their much coveted community table. Whew! I had to beg them to let me in (just kidding). Well, I told them it was my birthday month and if they would let my hungry stomach indulge in this one of a kind gastronomic experience. Thank you Uchi!
Every month, the staff shops around for local meat, fish, and seasonal harvest, that they can showcase the next Monday (the 2nd Monday of the month to be exact). Uchi is a modern Japanese restaurant but the community table is an exception. The chefs can actually cook whatever they want for this event. For the month of September, they decided to feature creations from two of their sous-chefs. I don’t remember their names (and I do feel bad about it) but these guys are amazing and their dishes just blew me away! It probably is my best 6-course meal ever! Continue reading
Last March, me and M decided to take an out of town trip to San Antonio for our 2nd wedding anniversary celebration— and I’m so glad we did. I guess I needed a break from all the craziness at work and just a breather. For the past few months, me and M are going through this LDR all over again for a better future. Don’t worry, I am not going to talk about our love story in this blog as I try to make those moments personal and this blog is all about my gastronomic adventures. Our 3-day vacation in the state’s historic city has been very productive—we just ate our hearts out! Continue reading
Happy holidays!! I can finally smell Christmas in the air here in H-town and what better way to celebrate this season than eat out with your loved ones. Since my bold move here in the metropolis, I have been craving for an authentic “mom and pop” restaurant that will satisfy my Korean barbecue cravings. Of course, LA has the best Korean cafes in the country but I think this city is slowly catching up. I must admit, my fave places will always be in Korean town but I know I still have a lot of discovering to do in here. Continue reading
Konnichiwa! Pardon my awfully long hibernation from the blogosphere. For the last few months, I have been busy starting a new career and managing my time. Indeed fall is here and I am starting to crave for Asian foods like pho and miso soups. Although not as diverse as New York or Los Angeles in terms of the culinary food, I am actually finding Houston to be much of a work in progress. For the past few days that I have been here, I am discovering immigrants from all over the world bringing their mom and pop dishes for the entire Houstonians to discover. Houston is a big city and I am excited to begin my dining adventures in this pretty dynamic, diverse, and striving metropolis. The Lone Star State is of course, popular for its barbecue. Check out my blog about Rudy’s and learn more about Texan barbecue. I do believe that Texas isn’t just about grilled and smoked foods. A large influx of Asian immigrants is starting to thrive here, making it a great culinary destination. So to start off, I am going to start with Sushi Jin. Continue reading
First of all, I want to say I miss food blogging and sharing about my culinary adventures. My long overdue blog posts have been put off by my pretty hectic schedule in the last few months –which is between working a part time job and studying for a license exam. But now that my schedule is giving me more time to update my website, I am pretty confident that I’ll keep my hands busy again with something. So anyway, enough with this endless blabbing (something that could go on without even me noticing about it).
Annyong haseyo! ( I don’t know if I spelled it right) Hey there upper east siders! First of all, I want to greet everyone a merry Christmas and prosperous new year ahead! I know I haven’t blogged about my gastronomic adventures lately but I do hope to blog regularly this 2013. Crossing my fingers!
Pardon my hibernation from this blog. Due to a pretty busy schedule and some commitments that I need to make, I haven’t written a lot for my food blog. In case you don’t know, yes—I work as a freelance copywriter and online marketer in Odesk. Rest assured, I am trying my best to grow this blog since food and eating have always been my passion. So don’t worry guys, I will try to write more for this blog. Anyway, enough of this blab. Continue reading
If there is one thing that M and I share together, it is our love for food and travel. MyHungryStomach is all about my gastronomic and culinary adventures here in the Land of the Free and wherever life takes me. So here it is — my debut entry for this blog. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed eating! Special thanks to my sister C and her BisayaInManila blog for being an inspiration!
