Why do we love food?
As I was preparing for my presentation tomorrow for my summer course, I've got to think why we actually eat and care about food. I mean why are we so obsessed and crave about food? There are even those who actually have food disorders who are so obsessed and overeat them.ย

I mean, if you think this way, What is important than foods? what is more pleasurable than eating good foods?

In order to live out our lives, foods are needed and people crave for delicious foods. I'm sure that everybody would agree with me on eating delicious foods make them happy. I know that for some of you guys who are dieting right now would feel very guilty about eating foods for their body but at the moment you are eating, you would definitely feel happy.ย

Upcoming Bubble Tea Shop at Old Capitol Mall!
Wow I am so mad about this Tumblr app on mobile.. I actually posted this post about upcoming bubble tea shop few days ago which actually was not uploaded. Anyways I will be posting about this upcoming bubble tea shop again..! ...
So It's me again, just like usual I'm seating on my bed with my laptop on my lap. Today or few days ago, I wanted to tell you guys good news for those of you who loooooooove bubble tea. I know that University of Iowa students likes to take time at Old Capitol Mall in between classes.. Or was it just me who liked to hangout at Old Capitol Mall?

As I was taking summer classes at UI I could see those new stores and restaurants getting ready for new comers and old residents in Old Capitol Mall! It really is a shame to lose my favorite Indian restaurant, Zaika, but fortunately we are able to seek Bubble Tea shop in a month! The bubble tea shop that I am going to be talking about is owned by University of Iowa student Soobin Youn, who is one of my best friend. She is actually starting and adventuring her new life as a owner!!! She's very nervous about it, even me!!!! I'm very thrilled to see her as a CEO...!!!

Everytime I chatted with Soobin, she was always full of ideas about new business in town. Not only she is planning on selling bubble teas, but she is also planning on selling coffee, Bingsoo(Korean style ice sherbet) and other desserts that you cannot find easily in Iowa City!!! As a friend and as a classmate at UI, I respect and am very proud of her efforts on making her customers satisfied with great taste!

If you are free or have nothing else to do, you should actually visit this place and escape yourself from this HOT summer with bubble tea and bingsoo! I really guarantee her skills in making these desserts and drinks! You will never regret it.

Visit Caffe Crema for its unique taste and high quality drinks
Tumblr media
For today's post I will be posting about this place called Caffe Crema! Because one of my friends works at this place I visit here very often, but there's another reason why I visit here it's because you can taste very unique drinks and desserts that are actually not available in ordinary cafes in United States. The owner of this cafe is actually from Korea and they sell many kinds of stuffs that are oriental, which you might find it very different from any other cafes with high quality.

Because this place was one of the newest cafe in Coralville, which opened about one to two years ago, I was expecting very few customers but actually there were full of people occupying the seats.. and that I had to pick up my drinks and go home..!ย

Before you walk into the door you will see this pretty hand-written piece on chalk board that has Today's menus on it! Along with wallpaper and furniture, from the start of this cute hand-written menu and drawn peach, you will see many kinds of lovely displays that will make your eye twinkle.

This is Misutgaru Latte! I'm very definite that Koreans would know this misutgara for sure, but not with Americans or people from other countries. We Koreans often enjoy drinking this misutgaru, a powder mixed with many kinds of grains and sugar in water or milk, for nutrition and delectable flavor! By making this powder into Latte, the taste of misutgaru, which may feel too thick only with water or milk, you can enjoy more gentle and aromatic drink!

Here's a picture of patbingsoo, I beg you to taste this if you visit Crema!! Patbingsoo is a great treat for summer, it will take hot summer away from you instantly. Patbingsoo is sweet ice sherbet served with fruits, red bean, ice cream, mochi (small rice cake) and many kinds of syrups that will make your mouth full of freshness and sweetness. This treat only costs about 8 dollars in which I'm kind of worried about the owner that he might not even profit from selling this Patbingsoo since he puts too much fruits and other stuffs on it.

This cute little treat is called Cham Boong-uh-bbang, which means a gold fish bread. It's a Korean treat that you can also find in Korean market which is located in Coralville near Crema and even in downtown, but it's easily available at Crema too which I often go there and buy them. It's covered with soft bread and red bean inside, it does not exactly taste the same as original Boong-uh-bbang, that are sold on streets in Korea in winter times, because this treat is produced in a mass production and aims at toddlers for main buyers of the product and that it is more soft and has less red beans inside.

Not only they have great atmosphere for studying or chatting with your friends, but also they have great atmosphere for performances. Caffe Crema often hold concerts for free or for fundraisers.
And These are the pictures that I have taken from when I have visited Crema around Christmas, these performers sang and played Christmas songs in both Korean and English. It really was a good time to visit in winter break when no one was around in Iowa City, I was able to get warm welcomes and drinks.

It only takes about 6 minutes from downtown to Crema, and you can obviously take the blue bus(Coralville bus) from pentacrest which comes every 30 minutes and take off at public library which only takes five minutes to walk from there to Crema! You might think that it's too far away, but it really isn't and it worth your time to try unique flavors that is only available in Crema. The staffs there are really kind and will welcome you very warmly, the only thing that is inconvenient about this coffee shop is that the drinks comes kind of slow, so if you are busy and have to head to work soon I would not recommend you going to Crema.

Make your movie enjoyable with jalapeno pretzel popper!

For today's post I will be recommending you about this snack you guys might try as you watch movie at the theater!

This is when I took a bite of pretzel popper, as you can see there's a cheese and chopped jalapenos inside. When you take a bite, the cheese inside pops into your mouth instantly.. ย This cheese is sooooooo SOFT, and I have to say that this cheese melts into your mouth as it comes in!

Here's closer look of the popper! Doesn't this look delicious? It's not been a while since I have tasted the poppers but my mouth is still watery as soon as I saw this picture..

There's only about 10 poppers inside the container :(... which costed me 4dollars.. If someone like me who eats huge quantity of foods per meal, you will be expected to eat more than 2 or three poppers in order to fill up your stomach. I seriously do not recommend you guys eating this as a meal..

Here's a more clear look of pretzel popper taken from other website! I just wanted to show you guys and attack your mouth to be watery.. it would not have made you starve with my pictures but here do you see the cheese melting down as you take a bite?ย

As you watch the movie with pretzel poppers, I'm thinking that not only it makes the flavor and taste of the poppers strong but also you might enjoy the movie more by making your mouth full of spiciness and softness!

For today's post I will be posting about Olive Garden! Like last time, it is also a franchise restaurant but just because I love this place and there are a lot of people out there whom are first in United States and do not know about this place! So I've got to write a post about this place!

When you open the door, you will see this nicely dressed up employee waiting for you! You can actually directed to be seated by another dressed up employee or be waited for minutes if the restaurant is full!

This is the bread that comes before your main dish! I'm sure tat many people know about this bread. I believe that this bread is the second delicious bread that I have tasted from franchise restaurant, which is next to the Texas Roadhouse bread. But there are times (very often) that sprinkled too much salt on it that I was actually confused that if I was eating the bread or the salt as I was tasting it..

This salad is the reason I go to Olive Garden. The veggies inside are so FRESH!!!!!! Look at the cheese! My mouth and brain are full of the taste of this salad. Like the bread, if you have ordered the main dish you can get the soup or the salad for free which I have ordered salad for today! You can ask for more salad if you want it is unlimited for free. I often ask for more salad which I think is the reason why I get really full even before the appetizer.

This is an appetizer that I always order when I go to Olive Garden. This is really something, you really should order this 3 picks of appetizers. It really has enormous quantities of food by seeing this as "appetizer" it has the quantity of almost the main dish. The three picks that I have chosen are Stuffed mushroom, Calamari and ravioli! The marinara and tarta sauce that you see above adds more delicious taste by adding more and taking away rich flavor!

This is Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara that I always order for my main dish. People can actually taste this plate too oily or rich but you cannot resist on eating this dish as you know the taste and get attracted to the flavor. You cannot help eating eat even if you know how high the calories are.ย 
Although I get really full with the bread+salad+appetizer, I cannot stop eating it I keep on pushing myself to finish up my plate.ย

This is the chocolate that gives you after you pay for your meal.

I've brought recipes on how to make Texas roadhouse Cinnamon Butter!!! Now you do not need to visit Texas roadhouse just for the bread and its butter you can make it on your own and it just tastes exactly like the one on restaurant!
Try it yourself! It only takes about a minute or two.

Today's post is about Texas Road House that I've visited few days ago. I'm sure that some of you will know and would have heard of this place, because it's a franchise restaurant but I'll be posting this article for those of you who always always wonder and takes 20 minutes to decide for a dish. And just because I LOVE the bread that they give you before your dish, I will have to post about this place!ย 
Tumblr media
Like the name of the restaurant "Texas Road House", the atmosphere of this place seems that you are fallen into somewhere in south part of the States. You will approach to the restaurant that has pinkish or rather reddish lighting as you open the door, and your server will be with you with basket full of buttered breads that are freshly baked!
Tumblr media
It's one of my favorite bread that is served before the meal, my friend and I ordered this bread twice! And I often visit here just for this bread!
I mean if you visit Texas Road House, you will find yourself continuously eating bread with sweetened butter that is also served with basket, and often times you will be full before your main dish.ย 
Tumblr media
As you are seated on table, you will find this basket full of peanuts which you are allowed to eat them and throw them away on floor...
Tumblr media
Like this!!!! I was surprised the first time I visited this place when I saw the guy next to my table throwing away piles of peanut hulls.. and keep throwing away even when his server was actually watching him. But I've later found that you are actually allowed to throw them away on floor!
Tumblr media
Me and my friends have ordered Onion Blossom for an appetizer, it tastes just like onion ring. And I believe that Outback restaurant has very similar appetizer as this and taste almost exactly like this but Texas has it with much cheaper price! only 3.99 for a blossom!ย 
It tastes really great until you work on this blossom half way through it, after that you will find yourself in need for coke or anything that can relieve your throat full of greasiness. It is eatable and worth ordering just because it costs only 3.99 and tastes better than onion rings from Burgerking, but I would not have recommended if it costed over 5 dollars.ย 
Tumblr media
Here's what I've chose for side dish, I've ordered ceasar salad, nothing special.. it just tastes like ceasar salad with cheese on top. I would not have ordered it if I had to pay extra.
Tumblr media
Another side dish I've chose was corn! It tastes fresh and juicy, with its unique sweetened juiciness it really went along well with the steak.
I've chose 8oz medium rare cooked fillet for its tenderness! Because I always trust the fillet for its tenderness, I've chosen it even before I have seen the menus. And it was like melting away in my mouth rather than chewing hard for its roughness. ย 
I know and I agree with 16 dollars of dish only for your dinner may seem very expensive, but 16dollars for this tender steak really worth something. The quantity and quality that this restaurant serve is definitely more than 16dollars.ย 
One of the thing you will find very unique about this restaurant is that for every one hour or half an hour the servers line up on the middle of the restaurant and sing and dance very briefly to make the mood cheerful. People seeing this the first time may seem very stunned but later on they will also enjoy this performance!ย 
Here are some directions from Old Capitol Mall to Texas Road House, it only take 10 to 15 minutes by car and 50 minutes by walking! You can absolutely take bus from Pentacrest and take off at Coral Ridge Mall which is only about five minutes away from Texas Road House!

Sushi Buffet for Only Eight Dollars!
Tumblr media
On Independence Day, I've visited Osaka Buffet for lunch! It was actually my second time visiting Osaka, and this place is great! (compared to Peking Buffet in Iowa City)ย 
Tumblr media
I was kind of worried that this buffet might close for holiday, which it did not and still had a lot of customers. As you can see it on picture, the conditions and facilities in this restaurant is very clean and neat. One of the things that I really think is an important element of the restaurant is the cleanness and I find most of the time when I visited buffets in Iowa City to be unclean or rather close to ji juh boon ha da which reallyย  makes one to ip mat dudl uh ji da.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Here are sushi roles that are featured in this restaurant there are more than 30 kinds of roles and they also have sashimi too! It's really fresh and good I mean if you think of the price (lunch buffet for 8 to 9dollars and dinner buffet for 12-13 dollars for adults) it's really worth something. Although it takes about an hour to get here, it's a place to visit with less than ten dollars you can make your stomach full of sea foods.
Tumblr media
Like any other buffets, there are also dessert sections but it has not so many choices to eat. These are not as good as the sushi bar but I definitely recommend you guys eating cheese cakes which is the third closest one featured on the picture. Although they do not taste good as the ones in cheese cake factory, compared to the ones that sell in cafes or groceries they are fine. They have plain, chocolate and raspberry flavors, in which I think the raspberry one is better than the other two with its unique sang keum ham and sweetness.ย 
These are kept in somewhat cool temperature that it does not taste anything like jil chuk han cake or mijigeun han fruits.ย 
Tumblr media Tumblr media
There are also Chinese foods here! Nothing special but it tastes fine and seems less greasy.
Tumblr media
Here's where you pick uncooked sea foods or meats and they cook them for you with your choice of how well-cooked you want them to be.
You should definitely eat steaks from here it's the BEST steak that I've ever eaten, I mean it's quite different from steaks that I have eaten before. It's really thin but has soft sal gyul and they also have two of their unique sauce that you can take which takes away the greasiness of the steak but adds some unique flavor into it. One tastes like mustard and the other taste like soy sauce!
But unfortunately these steaks are only available at dinner time.. So I was unable to eat them!!!
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
Here are some closer shots of what I ate from here! Don't they look delicious? Some people might think that sea foods that are in buffet do not taste fresh but rather heu mool ha da but it actually did not taste the way they think. Before I've visited Osaka, and if I have not visited here, I would have agreed with those people because every other time that I tried sushi buffets or buffets, the sea foods that I've tasted tasted and chewed like dan mool bba jin ggum, the sushi or sashimi actually had "NO TASTE" it did not taste like anything but I could only smell and taste the wasabi that was in sushi. No matter how much they cost, they tasted the same.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
It takes only about an hour to get there by car, which is located in 3901 41st St. of Moline, Illinois. You may be worrying about the gas that you have to pay for, but think of how much it would cost for you to eat sushi and make your stomach full in Takanami!

Don't you get sick and tired of eating Papa John's or Domino's pizza at your dorm room or apartments? If yes, I would recommend you eating Falbo Bros pizza.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
It was close to revolution when my friends and I ย first ate pizza from this place, it was the most delicious stuffed pizza that I have eaten in Iowa City. I've tried Old Chicago, Airliner and etc. but my pick was Falbos. This place is actually available only in Wisconsin, Colorado and Iowa. Too bad for those who cannot deliver stuffed pizza from your home but you should definitely order one when you visit one of those three states that I have mentioned.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
As you see it on the picture, Falbos located in downtown has very poor conditions on eating one in store. Other than that it is a great place, you can order it by pieces or by whole pizza itself!ย 
Tumblr media
Here's a menu that you can choose from. There's lunch special too!ย 
Tumblr media
Here's where they put sliced pizzas, it has all different kinds of pizzas. I've tried most of them, Barbecue, two kinds of veggie and meat, they were ALL GOOD. I mean barbecue one may seem too salty and has strong flavor, but with pineapples on it, it covers to strong flavor of barbecue sauce and adds freshness to the pizza.ย 
For today's pizza, I've ordered stuffed veggie pizza with spinach and tomato one. It was actually my first time eating one with spinach and tomato, I've always ordered the one with olives and green peppers the typical American pizza, but I've tried the different one with hopes of not failing to pick the good one.ย 
Tumblr media
Fortunately, it tasted Great! It was one of the best pizza that I have tasted in Iowa, including the flat breaded pizza that I have posted about few weeks ago. It does not taste better than Chicago pizza which I have tasted in city of Chicago, but it definitely was better than any other restaurants that sell stuffed pizza other than Chicago.ย

Bubbles in Downtown
Tumblr media
For today's post, I've visited Bubbleology! which is located near City Hall. There are actually numbers of cafes and restaurants that sell bubble teas in Iowa City, which many of them tasted... bad..!ย 
I'm actually not a picky eater, but overall, most of the bubble teas that I have tasted in Iowa City were not as good as ones that I have tasted from other cities and countries.ย 
There were only few cafes that sold bubble teas in Iowa City about two or three years ago, I remember the day when I've heard from my friend that one of the new Chinese restaurant is actually selling bubble teas, and I've visited that restaurant right after the call from my friend. I cannot forget the taste. It was the WORST of all the bubble teas that I had in my life. After tasting that bubble tea, I promised to myself that I will not drink bubble teas in IOWA!
I'm sure that there are many of those in Iowa City who tasted that bubble tea and gave up on drinking good ones in this town, but I am giving hopes to those people to try some at Bubbleology.ย 
Tumblr media
There are actually over twenty kinds of flavors and over five kinds of bubbles, it really is a pain to choose from all those flavors.ย 
Tumblr media
As you approach to the store, you will see a bulletin board right by the door, there are post-its and Polaroid films posted on bulletin board! If you look closer..
Tumblr media
You will see these notes! Unfortunately, most of them were in Chinese so I was unable to read them.. I wish I could read them.. anyways I just thought it was a neat way to decorate the store with post-its and bulletin board. It was somewhat eye-catching.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Here are some interior pictures, it's easy to say that Bubblelology is decorated very simple and artless! It seems that the light green wallpaper adds freshness to this room! But in some sense, this simplicity might seem empty and deserted.
As you can see it on second interior picture there is a computer that customers can use while they are waiting for their drinks or Karaoke.ย 
Tumblr media
You can order your bubble teas from here! It normally takes only about five minutes, which I think is very fast compared to any other places that sell one.
Tumblr media
One of the cool thing that they have in Bubbleology is that they have Karaokes in their store, they have Chinese, Korean, American and so on songs available and there are about ten rooms available. It's really a cool thing since there are not a lot of Karaokes in Iowa City, which I think we have only two in downtown.
Personally, I won't go to Bubbleology for Karaoke, I would rather go to number 18 which is about five minutes away from Bubbleology and have better facilities, machines and availability of numbers of songs.
It may seem very old-fashioned when you see the hallway to the karaoke rooms but if you see the room inside..
Tumblr media Tumblr media
you will see these rooms with themes.
So, one of the cool thing about karaoke in Bubbleology is that they have very unique rooms, they have every single room with certain themes. The pictures that I have gotten from official Bubbleology above shows one room with Hello Kitty theme and the other with Super Mario, it's really neat on how they decorated these rooms, which would have been better if they also took time on decorating spaces outside of the Karaoke room.
Tumblr media
Finally! Here's a picture of Bubble Tea that you've been looking for! Do you see the jellies on the bottom of the cup? It may look like bool lyang sik poom that only cost like twenty cents on Deli Mart, but it tastes different from them. ( Although it may actually cost only like twenty cents)
Tumblr media
I was not able to catch the actual color of the bubble tea because of the lighting itself was too dark, but if anyone has tasted Green tea Frapuccino at Starbucks, it tastes and look just like it without whipped cream.
I would say that this bubble tea is less sugary or sweet, I mean if you are getting one without any bubbles, it may taste somewhat ming ming ha daย  but because most of the people get it with bubbles, it tastes ddak al mat da as you drink while you chew flavored bubbles.
Tumblr media
My friend and I ordered the same bubble teas but with different size, do you see the difference?
The one on left was the size of 16oz and one on right was 20 oz, it was 3.58 and 4.08 not including the taxes. Because these bubble teas itself has joong dok sung, jung mal be boo reun guh na chu eum i ra mo hum eul ha go sip ji an ta myun 20 oz reul si ki neun ge duh jo eul gut gat da. Hang sang neu ggi ji man bubble tea reul han mo geum do mo geum ma si da bo myung un je na jan i bi wo it da.
Tumblr media
It is actually located in 322 E. Washington St. which is only three to five minutes away from old capitol mall by foot. If you're bored and have nothing else to do on the weekends and want to experience something new, you should definitely visit Bubbleology for its drinks and Karaokes, Karaokes are so much fun!
One of another unique thing about this place is that on the weekends, it is open till 4a.m. in the morning (but not on summer and winter), I know that most of the places in downtown close at the latest 2a.m., so if you have no where to go but want to still hang out with your friends you should visit Bubbleology.

Three in One
Isn't there a time when you want to eat or try three different kinds of foods with distinctive taste at a time? Or is it just me? If you are, you should definitely try Sushi Popo.
Tumblr media
As you can expect from the name of restaurant, they sell sushi, sashimi and many kinds of Japanese foods, of them all I would recommend you trying Yaki Udon.
Unfortunately I do not have pictures for Yaki Udon for today, but if you are one of fans for fried noodles or Donkatsu sauce, I will encourage you on trying it.
Tumblr media
You will be expected to see foods from two other countries other than Japanese food in Sushi Popo, which are Korean and Chinese. I would not say that these foods have the traditional taste from each countries, but it really does a good job on making every dishes suitable for many of the customers' taste.
Tumblr media
I chose Yenching beef for today, which I always get when I go Sushi Popo, it is marinated with barbecue sauce which sort of taste like Korean BBQ or Kalbi, if anyone has tasted it before but the sauce for Yenching beef is more rich and watery.ย 
It is served with lettuce on side, which makes it more less greasy or feel bloated as you eat with lettuce.
Tumblr media
The spicy foods, especially the Korean ones are not as spicy as the original one, this is Kimchi Pork is stir fried with many kinds of vegetables like cabbage, green onion, carrots, mushrooms, onions and so on but most importantly with Kimchi.
Kimchi is traditional Korean food that is fermented and made by all kinds of seasonings with cabbage, which is great for your health, is the main ingredient for this dish. Kimchi stir fried with pork, doesn't this make your mouth watery? By adding Kimchi in pork dish, it makes the dish less greasy or get tired of.
I don't know if it is only for me, but I get tired of as I eat dish made out of meat, but this dish will never get enough of it as you eat. And it is actually less spicy than Kimchi pork in Seoul Grill (the Korean restaurant located in Old Capitol Mall)
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Here's some interior space for you, it's a fairly small restaurant and because they have open kitchen as you can see it on first picture, you can easily see the people making food as you eat.
Do you see those curtains on left side of the first interior picture? There are private rooms inside those curtains, but these private rooms are separated with only lines of straws that you can actually see or hear very easily from other rooms.
The lightings and overall atmosphere for this restaurant is quite dark and gentle, and these darkness and gentleness mix well and these interiors and atmosphere gives impressions of old Japanese pub.ย 
Tumblr media
Sushi Popo is not quite far from down town. It is located in 725 Mormon Trek Blvd, Iowa City, IA 5224, which it only takes about 8 to 9 minutes by car and by walk takes about 40 to 45 minutes from downtown. It definitely is a place to eat, especially if you are waiting to eat Korean, Chinese or Japanese food!

Dinner at the Granite City
The first restaurant that I will be posting is about Granite City in Cedar Rapids.
This restaurant is actually located in 29 cities, which in Iowa there are three Granite City in Cedar Rapids, Clive and Davenport.
Granite City is one of the most delicious restaurants that I have ever eaten in Iowa, its pizzas, pastas, appetizers and even the breweries are great. ( I actually have never tried any other dishes like burgers but I've heard that they are also great!)
The most interesting and unique thing about this restaurant is that they are all handcrafted, even the breweries. You can actually see the brewery vessels in the restaurant.ย 
Overall, most of the menus in Granite City are absolutely delicious, but of them all, four of the most menus that has stimulated my appetite were Tuscan Pomodoro, Maple Pepper Bacon and Tomato Pizza, Glazed Jumbo Shrimp and Flying Monkey.
From downtown Iowa City to Granite City in Cedar Rapids, which is located in 4755 1st Ave SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402, it takes about thirty to forty minutes by car. It certainly worth a time to spend thirty minutes on highway, you will never regret it.
Tumblr media
The dishes mostly range from 15 dollars to 25 dollars, breweries and signature drinks from 5 to 10 dollars.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
The first one displayed is the Maple pepper tomato pizza, it is made out of thin dough, which I used to dislike but by eating this pizza I started to like them. It's not like any other pizza, it is not as greasy or salty as other pizzas. With its fantastic combination of cheese, pepper and tomato, it results in deliciously addictive flat breaded pizza.ย 
Next is Jumbo Glazed Shrimp, I've ordered them as an appetizer and it was definitely a great pick. Compared to cocktail shrimps in other restaurants, the shrimps were more fruitful and fresh. The sauce which was covered on shrimp matched greatly with shrimp's typical flat and watery taste.ย 
Tumblr media
This is Flying Monkey that I've chose on drinking, it does not taste like alcohol! it really is sweet and I recommend for those who dislike the strong taste of alcohol for cocktail.
