Sometimes you just want to look at some delicious food. You don’t want to be bothered with reading about someones opinions on complementing flavors or the nuances of this or that. The Flash Foodie Series is here to help you with that. Food photos only – sometimes with a description. Come drool with me. 

I originally intended for my full Benu review to post today, but alas, I didn’t finish in time. Instead you will get a glimpse of the yummy to come, albeit in much smaller photos than usual because apparently Benu hates light.


grilled abalone with chicken liver


beef rib, jujube, burdock. oyster leaf


“sharks fin soup”, dungeness crab, Jinhua ham custard

To find out more about these dishes and see the full meal plus my thoughts, come back this time next week for my full restaurant review.
