Yesterday was a very special day for my family. It was my younger cousins birthday! To celebrate the occasion, my mother and I baked amazingly good cupcakes. I enhanced this picture (as you might be able to see) but it is pretty much exactly what they look like.

REALLY late hamburger post. burger bite challenge: Pearls Phat Burger

Ok so I'm super sorry that I haven't posted in a while. And so you know, I'm not leaving you.

This is the burger! It has great tastes and flavors though it was kinda salty. I mean like really salty. I asked for Mayo and they gave me WAY too much. It still tasted good and I love the options (buns, patties, toppings, etc.)

These are the french fries. Those were salty too but what do you expect, they're french fries. I love the taste and how thick they are, almost like the outside is a straw.
And for no reason whatsoever, this is my drink. Stewarts Orange 'N Cream Soda.

Burger: 5/10
French Fries: 8/10
Service: 7/10
Appearance: 9/10
Overall: 29 pts.

Pearl's Phat Burger beats The Counter by 3 points!

Happy Belated New Year

Yes, I'm serious. I am saying Happy New Year on the 6th of January. Oh well. I went to my neighbors house and stayed up until New York New Years. We were too tired to stay up much later. What did my fans do for the beginning of the New Year?

Burger Bite Challenge: The Counter

My lunch at The Counter yesterday was really good. I had a custom-made burger that had tomato, pickle, patty, bun, mayonaise, provolone, and yellow mustard.
The one thing that I didn't appreciate was that there were chives on the corner of the plate AND the toppings were on the bottom. Besides that I loved the burger. As for the french fries, they were 100% greatness. They had some spices which was good. The service was quick and good.

Burger: 7/10
Fries: 9/10
Service: 5/10
Appearance: 5/10
Overall score: 26 pts.

Indian Food Lunch!

Though I had a boring banana bread breakfast, I had an exciting lunch in Berkeley, California. I ate Indian street food at Viks Chaat Corner.
I ate:

Mango Lassi,
Aloo Tikki
Pushcarts with large taavas have these potato patties lined up in a circle ready to be served with cholle and chutneys. The crisp skin hides the soft interior,

Masala Dosa,

The Dosa pushcart would set up everyday at 4pm around the corner from Amitabh Bachan’s bungalow in Mumbai. The Dosa Wala would always put the first dosa made at the foot of Ganeshji's altar. He would roll out these savory crepes with filling, on a taava, and serve them with sambar and chutney. Masala is potato filling,
And The Chicken Curry Special
Which is pretty self explanatory.

Then for desert I went to Yogurt Land frozen yogurt.

Holidays and Hamburgers!

I hope you guys had a very merry Christmas and a happy sixth night of Hanukah!

Now on to the burger bit.

There are currently four burger spots in my town. They are: Pearls Phat Burger, Super Duper Burgers, The Counter, and In'N'Out Burger. I am going to eat at all of them to see which is the best. I will eat a plain hamburger (patty, bun, lettuce, tomato, cheese, mustard), a milkshake, and french fries from each joint. I will, of course, blog about each one describing how it is and you will have a say in which one sounds best! If you have one of these in your town, review it in the comments. I will announce the winner soon after I finish with each restaurant. I call this

Your eyes are alright!

Your eyes are not deceiving you:

These are blue jellyfish,

These are green jellyfish,

These are red jellyfish,

This is an orange jellyfish,

These are pink jellyfish,

These are upside-down jellyfish,

This coral does have glow-in-the-dark tips,

This is a glow-in-the-dark sea

This is the Gieco Gecko,

Today is Ghirardelli day at the California Academy of Sciences,
And you can get good fish and chips at the California Academy of Sciences!
Thanks Cal Academy!!!!

You know it's Winter... (pt. 2)

You know it's Winter when...

There are donkeys dressed as reindeer at a farmers market,
You still have a pumpkin that you bought in October to scare off deer,
The ducks are creeping you out by showing you their backsides,
And you feel like you are this polar bear when you wake up in the morning because you are afraid of global warming.

You know it's winter...

You know it's Winter when...

You have sparkly Christmas trees and a Menorah next to each other,
Starbucks has released it's red cups,
You have a tilted Christmas tree,
You can eat latkes at a local farmers market,
You can also eat peppermint Oreos at the local farmers market,
There are chickens at the farmers market,
While at the same time you can eat chicken soup with real chicken fat,
they are selling live fish, lobsters, and crabs at the farmers market,
And you change your chat icon to an apple because you are hoping for apple pie for the holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah and Good Kwanzaa to my readers!!!!
