The Foodie : Breakfast at Einstein Bros Bagels

Einstein Bros Bagels is one the best place to have Bagels for Breakfast and their Smears (Cream Cheese Spreads) is really awesome. Occasionally we go to this place to have breakfast on weekends. My default choice is always Apple wood Bacon & Cheddar Sandwich.

Small History

Bagel looks a lot like Donuts, but it is harder bread in a ring shape, it is very nice only if you add Smears, the cream cheese spread. Bagel was originally came to life in Poland and it 's more popular in Canada and USA. So lets See what we ate

The Apple Wood Bacon & Cheddar Egg Sandwich

Price : Pricey $6 to 7$ for breakfast
Taste : Awesome
Rating : 4/5

The Foodie : Charo's Peruvian Cuisine

We started out to buy Diwali dresses on Monday night(we were so busy hiking on weekends), all of my friends had no luck either they don't liked the dress or it's too expensive. All four of us returned empty handed from the mall. We decided to have a nice dinner.

As it was Monday all the Indian Restaurants & Shops are closed in Artesia, We had to choose an alternative, so the next best alternative would have been Chipotle if it was lunch, since it was dinner the next best option is trying a South American food, so we choose Charo's Peruvian Cuisine,

The Food is Good but its bit Pricey

Appetizer  - Chicharon de pollo

Looks like Chicken 65, but its very nice that pickled onion is really awesome.

Aji de Gallina

Picante de Pollo

Pollo con Papa Seca - This is the best Dish

This Green Sauce is a spicy treat, it will be good for dosa too, they sell this separately too.

Price : Pricey
Taste ; Very Nice
Rating : 4/5

The Foodie : Fish Fry

It's Sunday and we are so bored, thought of trying out some fish. We heard some Mexican shop around the corner sells nice fish. Luckily we got Sierra fish( we thought it was Vanjram fish or Neei Meen, but don't know what was it.), I used Sakthi Fish Fry Masala and lime.

Since the fish was very old and frozen the taste was not that great.

The Foodie : The Grilled Sandwich

It's was midnight and I had my surprise midnight hunger. So went for a quick sandwich 

What's Needed?
Deeps Mint Chutney
Two Eggs

Just spread the Mint Chutney, then make the omelet.

Then the rest is history 
Now grill it in the griller

It's not that delicious because the chutney was not up to the mark, but filled my tummy.
