Chipits Bake Bar

With the gloomy weather, I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled on Chipits Bake Bar by the beaches. It’s a pop-up shop that offers free cookies until July 16th where you can either customize your own cookies or choose one from their set menu. I liked the fact that while they are promoting their products, they are also adding a charitable component where for each bag of cookies they give out, a meal will be donated to the Daily Food Bank.

I had trouble with choosing the combinations that were available so I ended up deciding on the Salty/Sweet Cookie from their set menu and I really didn’t know what to expect. The cookies took about 10-15 minutes to bake and they were super soft which is exactly how I liked them.

Kyouka Ramen

Despite the warm weather this weekend, I just had a terrible craving for ramen but I was a bit too lazy to head downtown. Fortunately there was a ramen shop that had opened by the beaches not too long along ago which was perfect because I can easily take a stroll afterwards to work off the calories. For $11, the Shoyo Ramen was a satisfying and filling at the same time. The noodle texture was fabulous with the right amount of firmness without being too tough which made the meal all the more satisfying. I cannot tell you all the amount of times I have had ramen where the noodles were either too soft or too hard which can ruin the experience even if the broth is done right.
