Foodoofus 2 Year Anniversary Special: Humble Hometown (Burgers) Donuts

“It’s really hard you know… but sometimes you just got to step it up.” – Henry Co-Owner of Hometown Donuts I have a “love to hate” relationship with this place. There’s probably six reasons I’d like to go back to “Ala-MURDA” (the Swag generation came up with that one), three of them have to do … Continue reading

Loring Cafe: Bridging Minneapolis and Oakland

“This restaurant expresses a bohemian burlesque type of atmosphere…” When I first moved back to the Bay Area, I thought this old corner of the Bay would be converted into another Hipster hub. Not that I have anything against Hipsters, hell some of my friends make an argument that I could potentially be one in … Continue reading

Foodoofus Special Issue Arc: Intertwining Moments at Itriya Cafe: Temporarily Closed (Foodoofus SoCal Finale part 1)

“Don’t do it man, I know what you’re thinking… just whatever you do, know that everything will be fine…” That final evening, so many events went down I literally didn’t know where to begin. My chapter of Foodoofus (in So Cal) briefly ended at a place known for Spaghetti and Ssam. This place would have … Continue reading

“I didn’t really wanna make a fool of myself but I did for you guys really…” When it came to visiting back home nothing says a good homecoming than my finding new spots to check out. My best friend, old dance crew family and girlfriend in tow at various times made the return visits more … Continue reading

B-Dama: A Catastrophic Evening of Porcelain Chicken

“Our restaurant means marbles, you know the game you play as a kid?” When I was in the Bay Area, I noticed something very peculiar in a lot of the restaurants that I visited during my stay. Many of them are newly introducing (or rediscovering) innovations of the common protein of cooking, chicken. With the … Continue reading

Foodoofus Special Issue: The NorCal Chronicles #2; Reflect, Repent and Revisit.

Last year was a very unstable year for myself, however I discovered many new things about me that I didn’t notice until now. Before my current significant other, the last person I dated insisted to the very climax of our break-up, that I wasn’t “ambitious enough.” I guess it’s all in the eye of the … Continue reading

Foodoofus Double Issue #6: My Birthday Celebration (Sushi Wasabi and Orin Swift Wine) x Genkiyaki: Zombie Taco Debut Part 2 of 2

“Monday is going to be insane… can you help me cover the debut tonight?” And it was insane… at least the participants who decided to try the Zombie Taco for the first time. Those of you who didn’t already read one of the more popular posts, feel free to skim/read through my review on the … Continue reading

Foodoofus Double Issue #6: My Birthday Celebration (Sushi Wasabi and Orin Swift Wine) x Genkiyaki: Zombie Taco Debut Part 1 of 2

Given the lack of content, it’s time to wrap things up by giving the inside scoop on what I did during my small vacation as well as a new menu offering… “It feels like yesterday when I just turned 18… and now I’m this old?.. Fuuuu…” Probably in two more decades (or quarter centuries), would … Continue reading

Foodoofus Special Issue: The NorCal Chronicles #1; Bittersweet Bay Area

Wassup everyone, unlike most travel issues this one will probably be a consistent one for a very long time. I still have a good amount of family, friends and colleagues who live in and around NorCal (especially within the Bay Area) so from here on out, this exclusive series will be anything and everything experienced … Continue reading

Casa Adelita: A Common Man’s Home For Revolutionary Cuisine

“Hola, senior como estas?” *tries to think back to Spanish 1* “Uhhh…… uhhh… um, bien. Can I order something?” *faux spanish-english accent* *waitress stares weirdly* Oh… let me get you a menu. Last night, originally I was going to do a segment on Korean barbeque. However it wasn’t my cup of tea at the moment … Continue reading
