I am, by no means, a food connoisseur. In fact, I would dissuade you from getting my opinion on certain dishes because I personally feel that there are so many restaurants, cuisines, and dishes that I've yet to experience. My taste pallet palate (thanks, anonymous commenter, for pointing out what my eyes missed), while it has expanded by leaps and bounds through the years (my teenage self considered gourmet burgers as fine dining), still has a long way to go.

However, I am a serious fan of food. Part of the reason I look forward to weekends is because I get to experiment with new restaurants and dishes with friends and family.

Plus, most of my photos (from various lunches, dinners, and food trips with different sets of people) happen to be of food. I don't know what that says about me.

Here are some of the dishes I've enjoyed shooting (and eating, of course). All have been captured just these last few months with my trusty iPhone via Instagram and other similar photography apps. I could do better (and actually use my DSLR more), but my iPhone's with me 24/7; my DSLR requires a lot of effort to lug around.

You can guess, from this post, that I am a huge fan of the following: 1) cheese; 2) pasta; 3) more cheese; 4) Spanish food; 5) even more cheese.

I am also a huge fan of Japanese and Thai food. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take just as many pictures of the dishes I ordered from the other Japanese and Thai restaurants I got to visit recently.

I hope to taste (and take even more pictures of) other dishes from restaurants I've yet to visit.

Now I've just made myself hungry.

  1. Psst, typo. When it comes to food and taste, it should be "palate."
