Brooklyn Ball Factory

My local Japanese cafe Brooklyn Ball Factory makes Matcha Latte and its’ the damn best Matcha Latte I’ve come across, its perfectly sweetened and always made to perfection every time. I ordered matcha latte from other cafes and no one makes it the way they do.

I’ve had the typical cafe muffin but I recently noticed this pancake wrap treat called Dorayaki. Dorayaki is a red-bean pancake which consists of two small pancake-like patties filled with sweet Azuki red bean paste and different flavored fillings.

It’s mildly sweet I would compare the pancake taste to a crape but obviously made differently. The matcha flavored Dorayaki goes great with morning coffee or with matcha latte (my personal favorite).

Have you ever tried Dorayaki?

Rice Cakes: Do you Love ’em or Hate ’em??

I have been meal prepping which has been successful the past 2 weeks, but one thing I forgot to incorporate was snacks! How could I forget?! as a junk food lover I usually opt for a mini size candy bar or a small prepackaged fruit pie but even those aren’t the healthiest. Today I was craving something sweet and there was no candy bars or fruit pies to suffice my sugar craving.

During my last grocery run I brought whole wheat rice cakes as a healthy snack but no matter what flavor they are, it just taste too plain so I threw on some fruit, peanut butter and ground cinnamon for flavor and it tasted just fine! I should’ve added some flax seeds and cacao nibs for the added fiber and antioxidants.
