Canton Palace: Somerville, NJ

   Fried tofu with Chinese vegetables (紅燒豆腐). The tofu was perfectly pan fried, but soft on the inside. It was surrounded by bean curd and Chinese vegetables. It was so juicy and savory. Definitely recommend this dish to all the vegetarians and non-vegetarians out there.

Sweet & sour ribs (京都骨). This was really crispy on the inside and the sauce is sticky. It was like a burst of flavor in your mouth. Fresh steamed fish (盲曹魚). This was really delicious, you can really taste the freshness. However, this dish is definitely not for everyone. But, if you’re Chinese and have had this before, then this probably looks awesome to you.
  Steamed crab with garlic, ginger, green onions, on top of noodles (清蒸水蟹伊麵底). It has really strong flavors, but I was really looking forward to pan fried noodles and crab, rather than steamed. Overall, it was still delicious, but difficult to eat.   All of our food. 

This past weekend, my family and I went to one of our favorite Chinese restaurant in New Jersey, call Canton Palace. The address is: 216 W Main St, Somerville, NJ 08876. We went with our family friends, since they were moving away, we wanted to have on last get together. My family and I come to this restaurant often, because their food is really delicious and affordable. The service is really nice, but the atmosphere is a little hectic.

I would definitely recommend going to this restaurant if you ever get the chance. I’m really picky when it comes to food, given that I was born in Hong Kong, I have really high expectations when it comes to Chinese food. And this place is really authentic and the flavors are great. I give this restaurant a 10/10.

Much Love,



PHO-tastic! 🍜

Pho thanh huong in Parsippany, NJ

This weekend, my family and I stumbled upon this restaurant in Parsippany, NJ. It’s a Vietnamese restaurant. It looks like a small restaurant on the outside, but it’s actually pretty nice inside. The staff is incredibly friendly, but the AC was really low. For anyone that has had pho, you know how important it is to have AC while eating it. Basically, we were all sweating. But the food was amazing.

I ordered the brisket pho, size medium, $7.69 (around that price). The bowl is huge, there was a good chunk of brisket too, as well as noodles. The mint and bean sprouts that they serve you is so fresh. I’ve been to a pho restaurant before, where all the mint were wilting.

We also got some appetizers. The Vietnamese spring roll and this shrimp paste bamboo roll. The Vietnamese spring roll was so crunchy and the sauce and the lettuce was so fresh. Definitely one of the best spring roll I’ve had thus far. The shrimp paste bamboo roll was a little odd. It tasted almost like plastic, wouldn’t recommend that appetizer.

 Overall, I LOVED this restaurant and will definitely return back ASAP!! If you’re ever in the NJ area, definitely try this pho restaurant out!

Much Love,


Fresco Mexican in Chester, NJ

   Our food
 Up close & personal with our Bocadillo Platter -$13.95

If you live around the NJ/NY area, then you should definitely try out this small Mexican restaurant, located in Chester, NJ. It’s call: Fresco Mexican. The shop itself is fairly small, but it’s big enough for their business. They have seating inside and outside, we chose to sit outside because of the nice breeze that day.

We ordered the: Bocadillo Platter, which includes Chicken Empanadas, Beef Taquitos, and Guacamole. Everything tasted SO homemade and so delicious. The guacamole tasted so fresh and chunky, just the way I like it. Every sitting also comes with a complimentary chips and salsa, with mild and hot sauce on the side. The chips were so crispy, almost tasted like pita chips, but better. The salsa was so chunky and definitely homemade. The mild sauce was not too spicy, but spicy enough to give it a little flavor.

The overall setting of the restaurant is so relaxing and definitely a great place for couples for their first date or friends that want to grab a quick lunch. However, I didn’t really enjoy the staff too much. Don’t get me wrong, they were polite, but our server kept coming to our table asking if we’re going to order anything else, and when we said no, they kept coming out trying to clear our plates when we weren’t even done. It almost felt like they wanted us to leave ASAP. But like I mentioned before, the food is amazing, I would definitely go back for the food!

Have you ever been there before? If you did, comment below!
