Foodie Diary: Mama’s Rice Noodle

Hi, visitors! I’m Victoria Bao, your chef and gastronome.

Today, I have a new restaurant for you.

If you like noodles then this is the right place!

Mama’s Pho & Sandwiches


We all love rice noodles! I’m a big fan of this restaurant!

It is a small place, but so many people like to eat here. It always crows.

My friend intruded me about this restaurant first.

After I tried, I’m strongly want to share with you!


(Mango smooth)

Let’s start with the drink!

This mango smooth is very tasty! It is not as sweet as you think. It comes with a bit sour flavor! If you don’t like a sweet drink, please try this. They have two options either if you want cream on the top or not.


(Spring Roll with Shrimp)

This is a very good appetizer. It contained vegetables and shrimps. The sauce on the side is sesame sauce.


(Thick Rice Noodles with Hot & Spicy Beef Soup)

Like I have mentioned in my previous posts, I love spicy food. I tried this one when the first time I was there. It is so delicious. It’s spicy soup, but it is drinkable. Actually it is quite tasty. The rice noodle inside is the thick kind. This kind of rice noodle is very easy to chew. Good for both kids and adults.


(Special Noodle Combination Beef Soup)

I always have the second choice for you. If you can’t eat anything spicy, this rice noodle will be your choice. The soup is not very oily and the beef is very juicy.

It is not bad for a rice noodle rice restaurant like this. I hope one day they can get a restructure inside. Because the restaurant is pretty small. Sometimes, I have to wait other customers finished. Clean and beautiful place. Their food is in an average level, but worth to try.

My evaluation: ★★★

Foodie Diary: Where Should I Eat After 10pm?

Hi, visitors! I’m Victoria Bao, your chef and gastronome.

Some people struggled about places to eat during the midnight.

“Just call domino!”

NO! I have a better choose for you and the food in this restaurant are divers.

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse


BJ’s is a pretty popular restaurant in the United States.

Why does everybody like it? Because they have many types of food.

And it still open after 10 pm! Do you want some late night snacks? This is the right place.


(Root Beer Float)

How about we start with drinks?

This is a perfect drink for people who like sweet things. It is a brown sweet beverage and ice cream on the top. This drink could be alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Normally they serve non-alcoholic root beer float at BJ’s, so no worries and try it.

Like I said, they have so many types of food. Pizza, pasta, burgers and so much more.

But please let me recommenced my favorite soup!


(Clam Chowder)

This is a very creamy soup and served in a bread bowl. It is a garlic bread on the top. Also, I always tear the bread inside it and mix it with the soup. Good for a rainy day and a cold night. 😉


(Chicken pot stickers)

This is a new dish I discovered today. These pot stickers are very juicy. And the sour sauce makes people always want to eat one more! :)

Finally, it is dessert time.!


(Pizookie® Trio)

Heated cookie as a base and one scoop ice cream above. A tragedy for girls who try to lose weight! But also the best for dessert lovers. Me and my friend as an example. One the other hand, some people said this is too sweet. So think about it before you order it.

Me and my friends are big fans of this restaurant. We like the tacos here, but, unfortunately they sold out today. So I don’t have a picture of it. After my recommendation, you might these food are all high calorie. Actually, they do have calorie list out in their menu. Check it before order and chose the perfect one for yourselves. The environment inside is good, very clean. Open until midnight!

My evaluation: ★★★★☆

Foodie Diary: Need A Good Ramen House?

Hi, visitors! I’m Victoria Bao, your chef and gastronome.

Today, I would like to recommend an restaurant that locates in Sacramento.

Ramen House Raijin 

o (1)

This place is different from other ramen houses because they have a special menu.

You might think “Ehhhhh… Must be new a type of sushi?”

NOOO!!! I have some new stuff prepared for you 😉

Have you ever heard of okonomiyaki?

o (4)

(Beef Okonomiyaki)

Okonomiyaki is sort of Japanese pancake, but the difference is it made of meat and vegetables. The material inside are various. You can add whatever you want in it. So some people also call it “as you like it pancake.”

(Menu of Ramen House Raijin)

If beef is not your type, no worries! They have many different flavors! My recommendations? Please try beef!! It is my favorite! :)

Don’t leave yet!!

Okonomiyaki is not the only thing they have! This restaurant named as ramen house! And where is my ramen?

o (3)

(Karashiba Ramen)

This is spicy ramen and kind of their special! If you are very into spicy food and this is the right place. Don’t be afraid that it is too spicy for you. Another popular dishes miso ramen is also my primary choice!

(Inside of the Ramen House Raijin)

I discovered this restaurant about a week ago. I think the selling point of this place is Okonomiyaki. They are delicious and not every ramen house has okonomiyaki in their menu. Their ramen is very good. But compare with other ramen house, their ramen is  just in a normal level. Nice environment and beautiful decoration. Good place for hang out!

My evaluation: ★★★★
