Usually when we get this back in Asia, it will be extremely spicy. However, in order to accommodate Americans' taste, this dish was evolved to a mixture of sweet and spicy. The key difference however, was how fresh the pork tasted. American meat always made fusion food even better!

Curry laid coleslaw stacked onto a huge size fried chicken fillet and in between burger buns. It was truly a revolutionary dish for me. It has been some time I ever visited a place that isn't too pricey, and yet with a great ambience. When I had the meal, an old couple was sitting right beside me, maybe because the woman was an Asian too, they accidentally charged my food to their bill before they left. And here it goes, they paid for my share and I had a free meal. They left in such natural way I didn't know my meal was paid until I asked for the check. Whoever you are out there, thanks for making my day!

Rated as the best fish and chips in San Francisco, this stationary food truck certainly deserves its status with the amazingly fresh fish and shrimps. The ignorant me didn't know that how originally fish and chips were eaten with vinegar and it was truly a brand new experience for me! I certainly loved the cocktail sauce that came with it! Fries were amazingly fried, much thicker than the usuals, a must eat for SF visitors!

Sautéed pork with fresh shrimps served with dry ramen in spring onion Oil. Reminds me of those 葱油面 I ate in Shanghai and the serving is pretty good such that I wasn't too full or overwhelmed by it.

Legit Chinese noodles at pocket friendly prices. Left my earphones here and lucky that the boss kept it for me. Handmade noodles are shiok and so tangy and it felt so homely. Sadly they are closed for a month temporarily and I have to wait till next month for the next visit!

Costing less than 10 USD, this is one of the most affordable and tasty ramen I have ever ate in USA. Char Siew was tender and juicy, each sip of the ramen broth makes me crave for the noodles more and more. We even ordered a refill of the Ramen noodles with different thickness to try out the the different textures and overall taste with the broth. #toogood

Found this in a random petrol station. Old good American way of eating meat in its most delicious form. Those meat juices along with their local grill sauce just made everything so shiok to eat!

Eggs Benedict with fresh crab meat layered with hollandaise sauce, fried bacon and sliced harsh brown. This place is a random diners at Idaho and I couldn't determine its location due to the lack of reception. All I can say that the state of Idaho being known for potatoes are serious about its potatoes, so darn good!

Signature hog island sweet water oysters found in tomala's bay. Understood the true meaning of freshness, it was the first time that there was zero feeling of uneasiness after eating a raw oyster. Freaking love the sauces that was mixed with salsa and lemon!

Best oysters ever ate! These are pacific sweet water oysters off the coast of north California, barbecued with chipotle bourbon butter, filled with awesomeness. I will never forget how crazy I went over its juices and fought for the biggest piece for my share l ;)

Best 10 USD I ever spent on Korean food. It had everything, from tang hoon, to brown rice, the soup even had crab, shrimps and sotong. There is also teriyaki chicken. Too much to eat, growing too fat already :(

Back in Singapore, 星洲米粉 is a favorite dish of mine that my family shares. Down here it adopted the Hong Kong style of cooking by adding curry powder to it. Admittedly, it is pretty delicious, slightly stronger taste than those back at home. The chef has been cooking at the same spot for over 15 years! Great to catch up with some experienced seniors here in USA.
