  1. I need that birria and I need to go to that Filipino market!!

    The name ‘puto’ cracks me up because in Portuguese it is kind of a swear word-ish way of saying you are really really angry.

      Haha, I know, “puto” is a bad word in other languages, too. But hey, Filipinos think of dessert…. so…. yeah! hahah! I love special markets like this one, they have so much great stuff. The birria was so good! And those tortillas it came with so amazing! Too bad IB is so far away from me.

  2. Hi Mary – My pleasure! I had fun trying new places and also revisiting some faves. The South Bay doesn’t get enough love just ’cause t’s not as shiny and pretty as the hipstery parts of town.

    My Isaac taco didn’t have celery like your Gobernador, but man, it was good! I liked your Berry beer so much that Bert and I went again and tried it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Jinxi got a walnut paleta. I LOVED the look of your ice cream scoop and cone. I have never a cone from Oasis despite the jillion times I’ve been. I want to try the flavr you had next time.

    The ube swirl bread is only available on the weekends. There is another version where it is just pure ube bread. That monggo bread is new too.

      Hi CC – Maybe I’ll do a “hood” crawl in the future heehee! I did really like that Berry Beer – that’s about my style for beer! I’ll update the post that Jinxi’s is walnut, it was too hard to tell from the photo and my brain didn’t remember. Thanks again!

  3. Awesome post!! I love trying new places and you should be a few. Next on my list is the Birria de Res you mentioned. That looks insanely good.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!

    What a cool concept! I have never been to a beer, bar, food, or any other kind of crawl. It might be fun to do a pasta crawl…maybe over the course of a few days. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That birria de res looks amazing!

      Food crawls are kind of our thing. The first one we ever did was a Pizza Crawl. 7 pizza places in one day is too much, if you were ever wondering ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re thinking of doing a chicken wing crawl or maybe a “hood” crawl next!
