The desserts at Eiffel Tower Restaurant.

Raspberry dessert. Super sweet.



Passionfruit dessert. Overpoweringly sweet.



A view of this passionfruit dessert with the Paris globe through the window. The small cube bits are pineapple from the pineapple champagne sauce.

Dining in Skokie.

This is Ken's Diner. The restaurant is divided into two parts. The meaty side and the dairy side which caters to our Jewish hosts who require kosher food.



Chicago deep dish pizza.



Nachos.



Quesidellas.

Was eating at this food court in Macy's. Now this is a real ballet school. Lots of young girls learning.



Interesting car plate on my way to Coralville.

Eating at Fuddruckers.

I got elk burger. Wife took a whole buffalo burger.



Buffalo burger



My elk burger.



Kobe burger.



Inside Fuddruckers. The salad/condiment bar is to the left. Basically the burgers come "naked" and you dress them up with whatever you like. Just like what you saw above in the photos. Ingredients very fresh.



This the wireless buzzer. You order and pay. Then they start cooking your burger patties. So it is freshly cooked. Once finished, this buzzer will vibrate for you to go over an pick it up.



Every Fuddruckers is it's own bakery. All the sandwich buns are baked at the outlet.

Bellagio Fountains videos.





Consider this. Sentosa Musical Fountain have to pay to watch. This is free from the street level. SG tourism really CMI save for our zoo.

San Francisco cable car ride from the bottom of Lombard St to Union Sq. Video is still processing when I left it. Should be OK by now.



The cool lever man who did the musical number with his bell. Posed for my wife.

Some shots of SF.

This is the VSC at Union Sq. I went inside. It is FREAKING HUGE. The posters damn steam.



Didn't take pictures inside. Not nice but maybe I see until drool.

9th St. A real SF neighborhood instead of Union Sq or Fisherman's Wharf. Note the fog above. It is common to have fog like Genting in SF.



This is Irving St. Was told that if you want good Chinese food, Japanese or Korean, come here instead of Japantown or Chinatown which have prices and tastes tuned to tourists.



The Muni street car that brought me to the California Academy of Sciences which passed by Irving St and 9th St.



After visiting the Academy of Sciences, went to drink smoothies and iced fruit drinks from Jamha. Very nice stuff. Saw them stuffing fruit and blending them.

If you want to understand In-and-Out's secret menu when you go to the US west coast.

http://www.badmouth.net/in-n-outs-secret-menu/

The official website didn't post pictures but this one does.

OK Suckiest food ever tasted in the US?

It will be Wendy's. The SG Wendy's suck and the US Wendy's suck just as bad. Should be closed down for feeding us this kind of crap. In-and-Out FTW!

Cheapest but tastiest food in the US when you are pressed and need a bite? Subway!

Seriously their Subway is very good. If you are just looking for a cheaper sandwich which is packed with fresh ingredients, Subway is everywhere. In fact they got more outlets than McD's. I think this has to do with the chain being a franchise.

Due to the Green Lantern movie, they have the AH-Vah-CA-Doh promotion. You can have avacado on anything for a price. Really made the sandwiches all the more tastier. Wife very upset SG Subway don't have avacado promotion and we also have Green Lantern movie here too. For breakfast there, they make scrambled eggs and omelette on the spot to go onto the sandwiches. Ate at the Subway just across the road from Luxor on my first day there. Somehow not impressed by the buffet at Luxor or Excalibur so didn't buy it.

While over there, if you have never tasted Dr Pepper, I suggest you do. You may or may not like it. I had Dr Pepper at all the fastfood meals I had.

My colleagues didn't like it. Says it tastes like cough syrup. Visitors from India don't like it. The only people drinking it like water were me and some guy from Texas because Dr Pepper is the soft drink of Texas.

I was in the middle of nowhere in Kanab, UT and there is a Subway. There is a McD's and a Subway in Page, AZ and I went for the Subway. I passed by the town of St George, UT and there is a Subway there. Ditto for Rockville, UT.

If this carries on, Subway will rule the planet!

Subway is like the bread-equivalent of Starbucks I guess. It's everywhere!
Haha, there's really nothing not to like about Subway. It's healthy, delicious and cheap... How I wish prices of Subway & Starbucks were similar here in Singapore. I miss the $1.50 Starbucks brewed coffee... It costs twice the price here, crazy!
