My June eating updates

Okay, guys.  HOW IS IT THAT WE ARE ALREADY IN JULY?  Seriously.  Where did June even go??  I'm not sure if it's because time just flies by a thousand times quicker in NYC, but I feel like this year has been passing by too dangerously fast.  I still remember celebrating New Years in China, and now we're already half way to Christmas?!! 

If you've been following along on Instagram, you've probably noticed that I created a second food account purely dedicated to my eating updates!  No, I cannot fit ALL my eating updates into one Instagram account and yes, the world really does need another food page! :)  Below you will find some of my June eating updates and their "food scores" which are 100% biased to my own experience and purely based on my personal taste and preference.  

In other news, my quinoa fried rice was included in today's NBC News piece highlighting foodgrammers and their favourite Asian-inspired recipes for the summer!  Truthfully speaking, this has been such a long and emotional week, but seeing this feature honestly made me feel a thousands times better.  Thank you so much to Diane from NBC News (also known as @akoreangirleats) for including me!
