Piggie loves pho…not just cause it’s so heart warmingly delightful, but because it’s fun to say! fuh fuh fuh~! Piggie is having another health week while working in the south bay…and another salad just seemed so uninspiring and boring and too healthy. So Piggie went and got some fffffuuuuuh. Ummmmmm glutinous rice noodles. Dericious!

Pho Tai

I give this a 9 out of 10 for excellent broth, good value and overall yumminess. Deducted a point for making Piggie feel too full.

WHAT IS IT??? It’s Black Carrot Cake!!!

Piggie was in Singapore recently and her posse dragged her to get some Black Carrot Cake and some duck rice thing at a hawker stand. Piggie loves carrot cake with thick unctuous cream cheese frosting so I was excited!!! Piggie wasn’t seeing well all weekend but that could be from extreme drinking…no one knows…so this was a chance to get some veggies and beta-keratin for improved vision and healthy skin! Piggie secretly wanted veggies all weekend so this was double exciting…

PiggieThe cake came…Piggie was all like…WHAT IS IT?!?!?!?!? It looked carby, glutinous, savory and completely not what Piggie was expecting. Below…close up. I like close ups and photos cause I lack imagination.

Black Carrot Cake

Piggie still doesn’t know why it’s called black carrot cake but it doesn’t matter. When something is this good…it just doesn’t matter. It could be called stinky feet and I’d still eat it. It doesn’t matter.

For unworldly fools out there still wondering what it tastes like…it’s like Pad See Ew…but take out the noodles and greens and whatever healthy option goes in there…keep the sauce and egg and sub in gelatinous turnip cake. You have to chew even less than with PSE…Perfect for the lazy person inside all of us. I give this an 11 out of 10 for shock value, superior taste, and good value.

The duck rice thing was tasty as hell but didn’t stand a chance against the carrot cake in terms of rating…so no review.

Yummy Tuna Ceviche

Piggie loves tuna…raw, seared, out of a can, and especially when in the form of a spicy tuna maki roll. YUM! But piggie has a fickle palate and needed a change from the yooooj…and tuna ceviche seemed to be the right thing to do.


1/2 pound of sashimi grade tuna, 1 ripe haas avocado, 1/2 red onion, tons of cilantro, juice of 1 lime, fleur de sel and pepper…how can that combination not be derishuss. But then again, Piggie has fantastic little genius hands that make the most tastiest food in the world.
