Soupy Xiao Long Baos at Happy Cafe

My family and I have been coming to Happy Cafe Restaurant for years! We first discovered this place when my parents owned a store in Chinatown and the owner always bought the best meats for the restaurant. My mom began to ask where the owners restaurant was cause owners normally buy cheap meats but this particular owner was very picky and buying the best meats possible! And this is the story of how we found the xiao long baos! Sadly, the previous owners moved back to Shanghai this year and the restaurant is currently owned by the previous owners brother. It still taste good and the xiao long baos are still soupy as they should be, but the flavors are not as good as before.  They have lots of other dishes too, such as the spicy beef tendons, salted and sweet soy milk on the weekends, fried pork chop, stir fried Shanghai noodles, Chinese donuts and more!

Little Hole in the Wall ~ Tani’s Kitchen

Friday nights are always a treat cause I don’t have to cook dinner. However, it is always hard to decide where we should grab some cheap eats. We also have to make quick decisions cause places tend to fill up on Friday nights, it sucks to miss a seating. We decided to go to Tani’s Kitchen, so we rushed there from home cause there is always a wait. Tani’s is super small, there are approximately 12 seats in the place, so if you miss a seating, you are screwed cause lots of people order to go! When we got there, it was full, I think we waited for about 15 minutes, but Tani’s is so worth the wait! We both ordered the Spicy Hamburger Steak over rice, the meat is always so moist and flavorful! This time we also tried the Salmon Skin Salad and it was really good too! If you don’t see these items on the menu, it’s on the counter walls, these are their specials!

Website is Coming to Life!

Yesterday my hubby came home and surprised me by showing me my website with my domain name…it suddenly felt real! It was no longer my tester site! YAY! He made a few tweaks here and there, and found this cutie pie girl to the right with sparkling eyes…hungry eyes? HAHA!

Thank you to my husband for being supportive to this new hobby of mine!
