It’s probably been at least 6 years since I’ve visited a Mongolian Grill – Genghis Khan (Facebook / Instagram: @mongolianbbqTO) (This visit being my second time ever!) The concept of “all you can eat” slightly frustrates me in the sense that I  feel I never eat enough. Another reason being I’m a very indecisive person (It would probably be hours before I finally decide on what…

Washington Travels: Baked & Wired

One of my best friends visited Baked & Wired (@bakedandwiredDC) 2 weeks prior to my trip and highly recommended the cupcakes here. Not being too crazed about cupcakes in general, I still made my way to visit this cute little cupcake shop in Georgetown on a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon. They handcraft their bake goods in small batches, from breakfast…
