A Thai Feast: Pad Thai, Larb + Papaya Salad

Since coming back from Thailand in April, I found a new love for the cuisine. Before I loved Thai food but realized there were many other dishes and flavors I haven't tasted yet. I wanted to taste a larger variety of dishes in LA as well as make some dishes myself so I got to cooking! A Thai feast wouldn't be the same without beer, so kick back and relax with friends and crack open some Chang Beer, which is the Thailand staple! We made a feast of Papaya Salad, Pad Thai and Chicken Larb. Read more for the full recipes and information on how to enter my giveaway with Chang Beer x Smorgasburg LA this Sunday the 24th!

Weekend at La Jolla (Food + Travel)

Had a quick little vacay to La Jolla the other weekend! I wanted to stay solely in La Jolla so this trip is not about San Diego itself. However, there is a lot to see in La Jolla and a lot left I need to see! I've been here a few times before but this time I stayed in a hotel that was central to everything, Empress Hotel La Jolla. Set right in the happening + bustling part of La Jolla, The Empress Hotel is walking distance to many fine attractions and not to mention steps away from the beach. ;) I found myself leaving my car put and had a nice and relaxing time walking around soaking up La Jolla.

Simple Cooking With Ducksoup!
