eleniswong I know poke bowls are a huge food trend right now, but I've never gone out and tried one, so I have nothing to compare this place to. For my first poke experience though... this was GREAT!! Spicy tuna, seared albacore and salmon, all topped with cucumber, avocado, masago, seaweed, imitation crab and spicy mayo -- all of it was fresh and delicious. The "sushi rice" was a little hard from being undercooked, but other than that, this was super yummy. I can't wait to go back! lol #poke #Pokiholic #MontereyPark #626represent 2w

eleniswong New #boba shop opened up in the neighborhood. Very nice and spacious with lots of natural light. The menu has some unique flavors, one of which I tried today. Unfortunately, I had to throw it away after a few sips because it wasn't very good. The boba was warm, which made my tea warm, and there just wasn't enough ice to cool it down. I might come back, but $4.19 for a Half&Half-sized chubby cup is a little pricey for me 😕 #MintIcedTea #HoneyBoba #MontereyPark 3w
  •   akong51 Honey boba rocks. Order this next time: Frosted signature milky + boba + pudding + grass jelly. 3w
  •   eleniswong @akong51 Yea, I figured I probably just ordered something I shouldn't have and should have gotten the Signature Milky, but I didn't want anything too sugary. I'm definitely down to go back and try something else. 3w
  •   akong51 Lol well milky plus all the stuff I mentioned is definitely sugar overload...but worth it. Trust me. 😈 @eleniswong 3w
  •   brandon__lo Hahaha lmao i'm here right now 3w
  •   eleniswong @akong51 k I think I'm gonna need to squeeze in a few more runs before I go back hahah 3w
  •   eleniswong @brandon__lo awesome! Did you like it? 3w
  •   brandon__lo Yeah it was pretty good 3w

eleniswong It's a day later, and I'm still feelin' all the feels. When I lost Nick around Mile3, I was bummed that I may have had to finish the race alone, but @runaroundange and @dj_jazzy_chef found me and stayed with me to the end. Not only were they with me when I fell, but they were like my very own chEar squad and helped me get through the last half with a smile on my face. I'm also especially grateful to her and @definitely.will.uhoh for taking care of Nick and me, even down to having a phone charger! It was all the little things that eliminated any unnecessary stress so that we could focus on our races.

Special shout out to @nikkelanddime for your training advice, effectively changing my run game forever. Thank you.
--
None of this would have been possible if I didn't have my sister Fernis, an accomplished Disney legacy runner, to inspire me to run in the first place. Ever since I started to even think about running, she's always checked up on me and was even there to surprise us at the finish line. She and her husband have always encouraged and supported me without hesitation, and I can't thank them enough for helping me see this through.
--
And to my bunny @shicholas -- even though we lost each other for a bit, it was providence that we ultimately found each other again so that we could cross that finish line side-by-side together. Thank you for pushing me to want better for myself and to always strive for my best.

If there's anything I've learned from this experience, it's that I really can accomplish anything I set my mind to. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I could run a race, let alone three in a row; and now I just feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to achieve my goals. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to do this again next year. In the meantime, I have some unfinished [bar] business to take care of, but I have "a new hope" now.

eleniswong What an amazing experience. The energy of all the runners, staff, and volunteers from start to finish was absolutely amazing. There was so much positivity and encouragement all around that it was hard not to smile or giggle the whole way. The Force was strong with us!

eleniswong Good food isn't always about the fancy stuff. Sometimes, the best dishes are the simplest ones but just made really well. The #CornishGameHen really took me back to my childhood when my family would attend Chinese banquets and the chicken or quail would be served with just some lemon slices and a small serving dish with a salt & pepper mixture. When fowl is prepared this well, that's really all you need. The crispy skin and ultra moist meat on Flock&Fowl's version were indicators that it was *perfectly cooked* (not greasy or oily). You know food is good when it unexpectedly stirs up happy memories of the past and gets you smilin'.
--
Whether you're a local or playing tourist on the Strip, please take some time to visit Flock&Fowl so that you can share in the chicken journey. And @chefsheridansu and @gyromight, THANK YOU for what was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. I wish you even more success and prosperity in 2016!

eleniswong Friends know that I can never turn down a nice hot bowl of jook (粥) aka congee or rice porridge; so when I saw this on their Special Menu, you know I had to order one. And I do declare that this is THE BEST BOWL OF GAI JOOK (雞粥) aka Chicken Congee I've ever had in my life!! I don't what they put in it, but #ChickenEssence and a bit of magic must be in there somewhere because the flavor trip it took me on was *magical*. And the TEXTURES! -- crispy chicken, fried bits of garlic, smooth cream -- ugh. Did I mention that truffle oil is optional? #iDie #FlockingDelicious #ChickenCongee #雞粥 #ArrozConCaldo #Lugaw #FlockAndFowl #Sahara #Vegas #puppybunnyeats 1mon
  •   shicholas Best meal of 2015?! 1mon
  •   shicholas It's closer between that and Khyber Pass 1mon
  •   reecocoa That looks soooo good! 1mon
  •   eleniswong @reecocoa It was beyond yummy. You should go try it! It's on the North side of Sahara just a block West of Las Vegas Blvd. in a tiny strip mall. And Happy New Year! 1mon
  •   eleniswong @shicholas oof, that's a toughie. Can't rank one over the other because they were both really really good. 1mon
  •   rebekah.wong I love jook!!!! Sour cream too! Never thought of putting the two together! Will need to try! My favorite jook so far is the duck congee at @littlesisterdtla ! 1mon
  •   eleniswong @rebekah.wong I'm not sure if it was sour cream, but it definitely punched up the jook. And I'll def have to take you up your recommendation to try the duck jook at Little Sister. In the meantime, Happy New Year to you and your family! 1mon

eleniswong Flock & Fowl's concept is simple, but brilliant. Each item on the menu is a specialty chicken dish, but Chef Sheridan Su features each one in his own way. If I had to pick the one option you need to try first, it would be the Hainan Chicken Rice. Not just your average boiled chicken, the chicken in this dish has been *poached to perfection*, leaving it moist AND flavorful. The chicken rice has that tinge of golden brown, letting you know that it has been cooked in chicken wonderfulness, buddied up with some pickled cucumbers and mustard greens. And then there's the sauces (all made in-house): ginger oil, sweet soy, and sambal chile paste. The word that best sums up this dish is BALANCED -- everything has its place and when they all come together... YUM

eleniswong Although it wasn't my last food adventure of 2015, it deserves to be the last series of photos I post for this year. #savethebestforlast #tbt

Sheridan and Jenny don't just own and operate restaurants. Their work is important to Las Vegas because they are single-handedly reshaping the local culinary landscape by introducing a bit of the 626 to the 702 but in their own unique way. It's an honor to know them and a privilege to have eaten their food. Their latest venture, Flock & Fowl, is cozy and humble, but you can feel the heart and soul they put into it. The moment I walked in, I KNEW our meal was going to be amazing. #chickenchickeneverywhere #FlockAndFowl #Sahara #Vegas

eleniswong I'm running a little behind on all things #Christmas this year, but at least I finally picked out this year's colors -- purple, green, white, silver and crystal. Not a very traditional palette like last year, but I think it'll still turn out okay... #OChristmasTree #ChristmastimeIsHere #ornaments #purpleandgreen 2mon
