The name of this dish may not sound appetizing for many people, or the coloration on this seasoned egg may look odd to others, but the taste of this Chinese delicacy was divine when it is consumed with congee as part of a meal.

This Shot was Delicious and Dangerous

Shots! Shots! Shots!
Shots! Shots! Shots!

Everything in Las Vegas from hotels, restaurants, casinos, and bars is overly exaggerated with size and proportions.

Sharknado is my favorite summer drink from Pocket Bar, a fun and cozy neighborhood bar around Hell’s Kitchen.

Suzy, the fabulous owner at Pocket Bar, created this signature drink with a twist (Sangria with Shark!!)  Besides this delicious drink, Pocket Bar also curates a selection of wines and beers.

If you are in the neighborhood, please check out this hidden gem.  It is worth your trip!!

Sipping Emotion

This delicious drink is a signature cocktail from Obao, one of my favorite restaurants in Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.

Obao infuses its own vodka and using it as one of the key ingredients to create this drink.  On a warm summer day, this slightly sweet drink with a twist will definitely chill and calm you down.

If you ever visit Obao, please give Sipping Emotion a try, and let me know what you think.

Cheerios, my friends.
