I just got back from a three day vacation, and I’m ready for another one. It’s always so hard to get back to reality after coming back from vacation, don’t you think? We were in Los Angeles to celebrate my youngest sister’s 25th birthday and packed the weekend with a ton of delicious food from the 626 Night Market and Smorgasburg. From cherry blossom ice cream bars to lobster nests, we wanted to try everything. And most definitely did with no regrets.

But when you pack your weekend with so many activities, you come back wanting another vacation. So I’m going to need a little pick me up to get me through the rest of the week. Going back to work the day after coming back from my trip? I set an alarm every 5 minutes for a half hour and only heard half of them. Lol.

It’s warm and comforting. Topped with vanilla coconut whipped cream, this matcha ginger latte is exactly what I need for a quick pick me up and for when the weather starts to cool down.

    I didn’t realize that you are based in SF! I just moved to Concord and I can’t wait to have some time to explore the foodie side of the city. I’m going to look on your blog for any dim sum recommendations. I’m originally from PA so we don’t have anything like what’s available in CA.
