My last trip to SoCal was very productive, in regards to being a foodie. I had so many delicious sweets and meals (yes, sweets come first!) that I didn’t get to try all that I wanted to when I was there. I guess I’m just lucky enough to even try these places. I shall go back and try something different when I have the chance.

Portland: Voodoo Doughnut

DSC_0984

M- told us about this tourist attraction. She said everyone who goes to Portland goes to Voodoo Doughnut. It’s quite funny though, because she’s lived there for 10 years and she just recently went here for the first time. She went with W- and I to here for her second time.

I would suggest going to their website and deciding what you want because the menu is so tiny!

Yes, I have a clear picture of the menu, but you can’t read it when you are at the back of the shop!

Voodoo gets extremely popular apparently too!

Golden Gate Bakery

Chinese New Year is a glorious celebration.  It’s always fun to hear about all the superstitions of the new year.  Somehow, every year I learn a new one.  Did you know that egg rolls resemble gold bars and that represents wealth for the new year?  Also, this year, I was able to catch the Chinese New Year Celebration in Chinatown San Francisco on my journey to the Golden Gate Bakery.

A Danish Experience

Paula's Special

On my way to a weekend getaway in Santa Barbara, there’s a little town nearby called Solvang that was calling my name. I heard that this is a quaint little town full of great food, more specifically, danish food! When I first heard of Solvang, the first thing that came to mind were danish pastries… oh so delicious breakfast treats! I didn’t get to stay there that long, but I did get to eat breakfast and grab a quick pastry to try, which is really what I wanted anyways.
