Food Porn Alert: GiGi Eats Down Under

Some EXTREME [food] PORN is about to ensue…

I warn you, what you’re about to observe may make you open your mouth and drop your pants.

So if you’re HANGRY… By the end of scanning these photos, you might be hiring a hit man to off me!

While it may look like all I did in New Zealand and Australia [check out the recap of my trip here] was explore the sights… My mouth ACTUALLY did a bulk of the “probing” when I was there!

I don’t typically like to share my food, because I am a selfish donkey… But, I decided, since I love all of you so much, I would…

Kampachi-Neck-Fish-Auckland-New-Zealand

Dragon is a delicacy in New Zealand!

Roasted Chicken thighs

These chicks have some amazingly juicy legs.

Grilled Calamari

Looks like grilled monkey brains but it’s not… It’s carved squid

Chicken Kabob in Auckland

On Guard…
Chicken Kabob in Auckland

And no, I didn’t post the same photo twice… I decided that I wasn’t full after my first entree, so I ordered another! You should have seen the shock and awe on our waitresses face… Quite comical if you ask me! 

Shawarma

In LA I cannot go more than… AN HOUR… Without scarfing the Shawarma… But I wound up only getting it ONCE in two weeks!

New Zealand and Australia served as my shawarma rehab… However, since being back in LA… I have relapsed!

Seafood Salad

This beauty did a disappearing act… 

Seafood Soup

So then I finished Laurel’s dish…

Asian Chicken Salad

Can I just say, I HATED this stupid salad.

I asked the woman who gave it to me where the chicken was… And she said, “it’s there… ARE YOU VEGAN?”

NO BITCH, I am NOT… If I am paying $12 for a salad, I want some damn animal protein on it… Not that crunchy shit! 

I wound up order some chicken skewers. When I finished eating, I was hungrier than when I walked in the restaurant.

Edamame

I love salt. Love it. Love it. Love it. I don’t know why they gave me edamame because I ordered SALT!

Salmon Sashimi

I made love to this…

Salmon Skin Handrolls

This right here is a staple order of mine… Salmon Skin Handrolls… Salmon skin, no rice, no sauce, no veggies… Well, they gave me a fuck ton of avocado, so I took it out and scarfed the more like salmon belly as if the world was ending, and then I ordered two more [because thankfully the world actually wasn’t ending!].

Unagi

You order tempura fried ice cream for dessert… I order grilled unagi.

Chicken Salad

This was not a stupid salad.

In fact, it was a very smart salad. Under those greens were lots and lots of olives and sun-dried tomatoes… And I wound up taking Laurel’s chicken Laurel wound up giving me a few pieces of her chicken [not shown]… SUCH A GOOD FRIEND!

Edamame

The salt lick… 

Salmon Sashimi

I am a creature of habit…

Venison

Venison… Meat from the angels.

Salmon Belly My day is complete…

Salmon Belly

Wait… No, now it is.

Love me a ROUND TWO!

Salmon Ceviche

This was not enough to fill this fish murderer

Venison Tar Tar

So a second appetizer was in order… Cause that’s WHAT I DO! 
Swordfish

And for the main event, I said TO HELL WITH MERCURY… I am going for the swordfish.

The selenium in the fish cancels out the toxic metal, RIGHT?!?!

Whole Bronzino

Remember my mentioning a $90 dinner I had in Sydney? Well above is part one…

Scallops And these suckers… Part two.

Salmon Head

I tried to share this salmon head with Arman

Octopus Salmon Shrimp

But I wound up helping HIM with his EPIC feast

That octopus though…

Sashimi Lobster Salad

Since I was still stuffed from lunch… I had a light dinner

Bay Bugs, sashimi and some roughage… That goupy sauce… Yeah, I didn’t touch that crap! Looks straight out of a horror film, or a gorilla’s ass! 

Bok Choy Broccolini

And had this for dessert. You likey Brittany?

Char Grilled Octopus

THIS RIGHT HERE = Breakfast of champions! I thought was going to be taken away from me at the Sydney Airport!

I would have cried. NO JOKE!

If my plane crashed… At least my last meal was FUCKING OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, I am sure aliens don’t even eat this AMAZING of food!

Seafood Chicken Skewers

Back in Auckland, I had this feast… That didn’t fill me up… So I ordered another round of those chicken skewers!

I am sure you’re all catching on to the fact that I like to order entrees as desserts! 

Salmon Sashimi Salmon Kabob

My last lunch in Auckland… Laurel gave me a shrimp kabob [not shown]. The salmon kabob looks pathetic but it was SCRUMPTIOUS!

Canned Tuna and Sardines

And my LAST MEAL in New Zealand w[at the airport]… I am ALWAYS prepared with canned seafood JUST IN CASE and… OH IT WAS NECESSARY!

My flight was at 10:45pm… And the only restaurant in the airport – BURGER KING.

Those two salads back there… BURGER KING!

NEVER in my ENTIRE LIFE HAVE I GIVEN MONEY TO A BURGER KING… BUT I WANTED SOME GREENS!

PS: I ate another small can of tuna after that… I knew I was going to be fasting for at least 18 hours… So I needed to LOAD UP!

Can you guess what my first meal back in the states was??

Salmon Skin Anago Shishito Peppers and No Rice Sushi

Five salmon skin hand rolls [no rice, sauce or veggies], two anago hand rolls [no rice, sauce or veggies], shishito peppers and “The House Roll” aka: salmon, tuna and yellowtail with avocado wrapped in cucumber.

Oh and EXTRA GINGER! I HAVE AN OBSESSION WITH GINGER… But not Ginger Men. Sorry boys!

So there you have it… Almost ALL [sometimes I ate canned fish when on the go] of my marvelously scrumptious eats that make me wish I had a time machine, so I could go back and re-eat them… Over and over and over again! 

New Zealand and Australia (and my wallet) fed me quite well!

McDonalds in Australia

 

Oddly enough though… Australians ADORE McDonalds! I don’t think they realize how amazing their food is! #FAIL 

So tell me…

  • Do you recall the most epic feast you’ve ever had? If truly was EPIC you would!
  • Tell me your favorite type of fish, if you eat fish…
  • What meal would you have liked to have shared with me… Or murdered me for considering I do NOT share my food.
  • Do you like GINGER?
  • When eating out, do you modify menu items to cater to your desires?
  • Would you be okay with an Octopus giving you a hug?  

PS: Weird tidbit – I did not experience a stomach ache even ONCE when traveling down under [hip hip HORAY] but since being back in the states… Non-stop nausea. It’s a conspiracy!

  1. Wow! That is an amazing trek of food, photos and a great story – thank you – very fun!!

  2. Great pictures – I thought I was the only one who had canned tuna/pouch of tuna or sardines in my bag for on the go protein :) Welcome back!

  3. And this is why we will make an excellent training pair. We essentially eat the same thing. I would have ordered every. single. one. of these dishes. My last epic feast was Monday–I got good and food drunk–and before that was probably the weekend before, but DEFINITELY in Charlottesville. And definitely during my menu tasting at Pavilion. HOLY FREAKING COW. Actually, there wasn’t much cow at those meals, but definitely a lot of fish and other decadent morsels of awesome.

    • Do you like cow? I do like cow but sometimes it makes me nauseous!!

      And um, I am kinda GLAD you didn’t come with me because you would totally wanna share food and I do NOT do that – BAHHH HA HA HA HA AH HA!

  4. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph I want to share ALL Of these meals with you. Actually, I don’t want to share. You’d hog the protein and I’d have to be all “where’s MY salmon skin BITCH?!”

    • And I would say, IN MY MOUTH BITCH!!!! And if you order more, I will just eat it when you’re NOT LOOKING! lol!

      If we ever travel together, we might have to sit at other tables during meals so we don’t get tempted to STEAL FOOD! lol

  5. Drooling GIgi. That all looks amazing…especially all that fish!! I’ve always wanted to go to Australia.

  6. I need a Kleenex.

  7. The food looked terrific but to be honest, I couldn’t “stomach” the references to porn very well. I think I’m a bit too straight-laced for this kind of post! :)
    Thanks,
    Amy

  8. OMG All the foods!!

    Spoilt for choice here in Scotland fish wise, but I think you would love Pan Fried Scallops with Chorizo and Stornoway Black Pudding! 😉

  9. OMG– such beautiful pics of food– I’m so into food– art doesn’t do it for me– but pretty and TASTY yummy food– well that Is a whole new story

  10. Wow!! All of that food looks awesome!! There were a few things that I wasn’t sure about but I would try it!!!
    Bummer on the nausea since being home – hope that goes away!

  11. Holy moly how much did you spend that entire trip?

    And lol, who needs the main dish when you can just order a bunch of appetizers and entrees. I can’t believe you ordered a 12 dollar salad without much chicken in it. That’s outrageous!

    • AH HA HA HA DONT EVEN ASK Linda, lol! When it comes to food, $$ is nothing – LMFAO!! I will skimp everywhere else 😉 And ugh, I am used to the $12 – $20 salad with no protein on it… #BeverlyHills

  12. OMG that food, I NEED it. Like, now.

  13. I’m not sure I’ve had an epic meal but if I did it would probably involve pasta of some sort.

  14. Sounds like you had an awesome time! I love that every blogger going to New Zealand right now because we are planning our trip for 2015 and I get to STALK all of your vacation photos for things to do & eat! THANK YOU. Nothing pisses me off more when I pay over $10 and get a sucky salad! I want more than lettuce please.

    • Oh go check out my other post – “Middle Earth Exists” – I have loads of photos there for you to stalk to get more of an idea of what you should do! PS: You can totally email me too!!

  15. Best meal was that time I worked a trade show all day without breaks and had only had a mint to eat. We went to a steak house for dinner and we wouldn’t let the waiter leave after he gave us the menu. We just wanted meat and fast. He caught on to our predicament quickly and started making suggestions. All we wanted to know was if we could get this that and the other thing fast, fast, fast!!! So the table is groaning under the weight of all this stuff and who walks in but the hot guy from the gym. I’m desperately dragging the salad in front of me and trying to hide the rest of this on the seat beside me. Busted!! “Why are their plates on the chair?” “Uhhhh … We are expecting more and we ran out of space?” Anyway we flaked out after a normal amount of food and had massive doggy bags to bring home. Those first bites were the best thing I have ever tasted!

    • AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! EPIC FREAKING STORY! And totally sounds like something I WOULD DO! Hey chairs are PRIME FOOD REAL ESTATE! lol!!!

  16. Wait – dragon??? So does it taste like chicken?

    The most EPIC meal I ate was in Abu Dhabi at a little hole in the wall place – they had the best fish curry, vegetable kofta and paratas I had ever had – with tons of onions, garlic and GINGER!!!

    • Dragon does NOT taste like chicken… It tastes like BEETS. Wait, I wouldn’t know – LOL!!!

      And those little holes in the walls are honestly the BEST PLACES EVER!!!!! I cannot get enough of them. I get annoyed when friends of mine are scared to try them out – because they’re ALWAYS the best!!

  17. OH my goodness you absolutely crushed the food pics! I think my favourite type of fish is salmon, in any shape or form (lox, candied, smoked, baked, you name it). I think I have had too many epic meal feasts to name just one…

    • NICOLE – you and I would be BESTIES… Or worst enemies … Because SALMON is hands down my favorite as well, however, I will NOT share it with anyone, LOL!!!!!

  18. It is of my humble opinion that no trip is truly a great trip if there isn’t copious amounts of amazing food involved. :O

    If I were allowed to consume salmon sashimi in the amounts that I’d prefer, I would probably die of mercury poisoning. ._. Sushi restaurants/buffets have taken to mysteriously closing down when it’s my birthday/I’m in town. :[ (It makes me rather sad.) Ginger is wonderful as well! 😀

  19. Fuck the US and their sketchy ass foods, I cannot imagine paying $90 for those two plates, BUT CLEARLY they were quality because you felt fabulous!! I LOVE GINGER this would possibly be the one thing we actually fight over when it comes to food, or we just go to your local sushi place and have your friend (Chris was that his name?) give us TRIPLE the amount. With extra edamame too. I’m proud of your good eats, even if I wouldn’t touch ANY OF THEM! HAHA.

    • It was actually 3 plates of food for $90, LOL – does that make it more worth it… I think I forgot to post a picture of one of the plates of food, but oh well, why would I want to make myself look more of a fatty? 😉

      CHRIS! I LOVE that you remember his name!!!!!!! HE LOVES ME SO MUCH and always wants me to dine in, bah aha ha ha! But I need you to come too!

  20. Wow, it looks like you had quite a feast on your trip! I love food porn vacation recaps – makes me want to take a foodie vacation asap. :)

  21. Looks like you had some delicious food. I am still drooling over your entire trip abroad. I want to go so badly!

  22. You haven’t you really stuffed yourself until you go to a Polynesian wedding. Or really any Polynesian celebration- so much good food and no desire to stop eating.

  23. I do like ginger. A bunch. And salt. All good things!

  24. I made sure I was eating when reading this post, dam that all looks good. Not much of a seafood eater but will have cod or fresh flounder if available. I haven’t mastered cooking with ginger but will chew it once in a while. I’m a giant cheapo and only eat out if it’s a emergency or the situation warrants it. If I ever make it back to CA. I’m heading straight to Spitz’s. If I was there definitely would have tried it all :) Glad your back safe.

  25. That was an obscene amount of food porn! Now I’m jonesing big time for sushi, thanks a lot!

  26. Wow the food looks amazing! My favorite fish is mahi mahi or salmon. Oh & I do like ginger. Always have to put it on top of my sushi!

  27. OMG everything looks so good!!!!

  28. $12 for that kind of salad is actually ‘cheap’ here. I’m embarrassed on Australia’s behalf.

    I hate this post, it’s made me miss you!!!! I’d give up seafood to hang out again! (Well, one meal).

    PPS- When I asked you if you wanted groceries, I was going to buy you those sardines hahahahaha! (and the mackerel)

    • I MISS YOU! And yeah right!!! I would NEVER ALLOW YOU TO GIVE UP SEAFOOD to hang out again – lol!!!! Give up SUGAR to hang out with me, LMFAO!

      And um, dude – you know me FAR TOO WELL 😉 Sardines are definitely a favorite of mine… But you obviously knew that!

      THAT OCTOPUS THOUGH!! ha ha ha.

  29. I am a salmon head too :) I am in awe that you ate all of that in one sitting with those abs :) all my love and happy weekend xo C

  30. Gimme all the salmon and nobody gets hurt! Seriously though, I’d travel the world just for endless plates of sushi and salmon like these :)

    • AH HA HA H! OH SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET HURT because I will totally FIGHT YOU FOR IT! Salmon is BEYOND my favorite 😉

      Maybe we should just draw a truce and go in on everything together and just double it! ha ha ha.

  31. haha fish murder! i love it. Consider me a fish serial murderer. YUMO! did you try wihite bait cakes? my husband loves those

    • OH my friend’s boyfriend ate those and died – I cannot eat them cause of what they’re made of… But perhaps I can try and re-create them some how?! 😉

  32. This is some serious food porn, totally drooling!! xo

  33. #foodporn

    :)

    Favorite fish salmon
    Do you like GINGER? YES!!!
    Most of the time we modify the menu item we are ordering when eating out. As you know with food allergies it is necessary, but not fun as we love food!

  34. Everything looks amazing! I love fresh fish. Looks like you so many great choices.

    • It was certainly hard to choose because there were just so many options! Arman brought me to the Sydney Fish Market and I about died from all the options!!

  35. Salmon for days. Love love love it! Food is sometimes the best part of traveling. Did you try veggimite?! Oh, and I forgot to mention in my comment on your previous post… those abs. Lookin good my lady. Lookin. Good. Welcome back state side!

    • I truly believe FOOD is the best part of traveling – I get that from my dad who will only travel to locations that have DELICIOUS FOOD – lol!! I mean, good but also kinda annoying, but hey, I don’t have to travel with him, RIGHT?!

      And nope, didn’t try the vegimite, totally forgot!!

      PS: THANK YOU – when my stomach is cooperating, I GOTTA document it LOL!

  36. OMG seems like you’ve eaten ALL the fish from the sea 😉 I’m a bit jealous. Did you even have a real/sweet dessert once? I don’t have a sweet tooth, but you…have absolutely not a sweet tooth, haha! Love your meals!

    • I don’t eat dessert – because I cannot eat sugar!! So nope, just more entrees or dessert – LOL!! Luckily I have a SALT TOOTH not a SWEET TOOTH so not eating sugar is not a bad thing! 😉

  37. OMG such amazing treats – yes totally drool-worthy!!!

    Best!

  38. Just started reading your blog and omgggg I can’t with how funny you are. Completely nuts and I mean that in the BEST way. I’ve been trying to get into fish/seafood lately after absolutely detesting it my whole life. I wanna like it because so much of it is so healthy. I’ve come up with a great tuna salad (with solid white albacore) that I love and have been doing it with canned salmon too, which I was completely afraid of. But I love it! I have some sardines sitting in my pantry at the moment…a little afraid that the fishy factor will slay me upon opening the tin.

    Anyway, thanks for your zaniness and zest for life! It cracks me up and I’m glad to have found your blog! 😉

    • Tell me this tuna/salmon recipe?! I have a few up my sleeve I can let you in on if you’d like.

      Want to know a funny little story? When I was younger… I RAN AWAY FROM HOME because I did not want to eat salmon. Um, seriously…? Salmon is my FAVORITE FOOD these days… But I seriously ran away for 2 days because my mother was trying to force it upon me! LMFAO! Clearly haters can be converted and I am thrilled you’re trying to!

      PS – I LOVE making new friends so I am beyond pumped you found my blog! :)

  39. Dragons are real???? Scarlet was right.
    Do you usually have nausea here? If so, not cool. Well we do know the states have a warped sense of real food.

    • Scarlet is ALWAYS right… I thought you knew that by now? 😉
      And yeah, my nausea is sometimes really bad… I don’t have a large intestine… So I cannot process a lot of foods – I am actually writing a blog post about this… But it’s a long time coming because it’s a very long story.

  40. Haha I love this post! I’m a Melbourne girl and don’t worry, we know how good our food is in Melbourne. Haha some of us are very McDonalds obsessed (I’m looking at my hubby while I write that), but most of us definitely aren’t!

    • PHEW! That’s good to hear! Some people just crave that processed CRAP! I am glad you (and most others) DON’T though! :)

  41. I actually had no idea Australians ate so much seafood! I love seafood of any kind so I would def be in heaven there. From your pics I gather you are obsessed with salmon and salt! HAHAHA I love salt too. Edamame is basically just a vehicle to get as much coarse grain salt into my body as possible right?!
    I can’t pick a fave fish because I love them all – mussels, crab, scallops, shrimp, salmon, swordfish, GIVE ME ALL OF IT!
    And what is this DRAGON you speak of?!

    • OH YES! Salmon and Salt = the only 2 food groups in my life, LOL!!!!

      And YOU just made me super hungry! Thrilled to be going to sushi tonight 😉

      And that Dragon…. It’s actually KING FISH – but it looks dragon-like, RIGHT?!

  42. Hehehehe welcome to my world, you probably think I am crazy being a vego now down under! 😛 You really dug into absolutely everything you could find, I am blown away by the delicious food porn 😀
    You have: Exceeded Expectations haha

    Cheers
    Choc Chip Uru

    • YES I DO THINK YOU ARE CRAZY FOR BEING A VEGAN!!!! LOL – but if you do feel better eating that way, I won’t judge… THAT MUCH – ha ha ha!

  43. OMG and now I”m hungry! All that seafood, I never would have left! I love that you aren’t afraid to just order a second plate I’ve done it before and the look servers give you is like your nuts. Then the next question…oh you mean you want it to go? Nope, I want to eat it right HERE all over again :)

    • I am NOT afraid at all! TRUST ME everyone gives me the weirdest looks, but I don’t care – I WELCOME THEM! lol!!!

  44. everything looks so good but your narrative is hilarious. Thanks for sharing all your yummy food, sounds like a great experience!

    • :) I am glad I could make you giggle a little bit! 😉 Thank you for stopping by Sharon!
      PS: I have a nut-free recipe coming tomorrow that is truly OUT OF THIS WORLD!!

  45. In this post you probably already took more photos then we have on our entire blog, I need to get some productivity tips from you I guess. I liked your photos of grilled tuna or salmon! Those looked awesome :love:
    Hope you had a good time in Ozz!

    • Ha Ha! I just told myself “MUST TAKE PHOTOS FOR BLOG! MUST TAKE PHOTOS FOR BLOG!” That motivated me to get some good shots prior to RIPPING MY FOOD TO SHREDS! lol!!!
      Perhaps some of these dishes inspired you to come up with some other delicious recipes?!?!? 😉

      • Hahaha, nope – they all contain some kind of animals. That won’t work for our blog. But I deffo should make some baked salmon some time. Especially since I’m now back in the gym becoming a spornosexual.

  46. The last time I had Burger King was when I was stuck in Berlin airport and they had no other options. It was disgusting – there were no salads in sight!

  47. Hope your nausea disappears soon! The food does look yummy although I didn’t see any potatoes and cheese so that makes me sad. $90 bucks for a meal and no dessert? Hope you got a little sweet up in thurr 😛 Otherwise, I’d be peeved. Lol. I wonder if their McDonald’s is better quality than the crap we’re given here.. That’s probably why they enjoy it better! Have a great one GiGI! -Iva

    • Thank you my love – Nausea is THE WORST!
      And um…. No dessert in that $90 meal… THREE appetizers/entrees though – 😉 You know I don’t eat SWEETS!

      And yes, the McDonalds quality is FAR BETTER over in AUS but compared to seafood, I don’t know what the Aussies are thinking!! lol!

  48. Hahaha they were probably like “typical American, ordering two entrees.” But come on if you give a girl a tiny piece of chicken on a $12 I’m either going to A) Throw a hissy fit or B) order more food so TAKE YOUR PIC. That feast you had with Arman at the end looks INSANE. Gimme gimme.

    A lot of this food is beautiful but I bet you couldn’t wait to get some schwarma back in LA.

    • EXACTLY! Judging the crap out of me because I am Americans! Americans always think bigger is BETTER! he he he and you know what – in a lot of instances, this is TRUE! 😉 BAH HA HA! Especially when it comes to THE SHAWARMA!

  49. Oh boy that all looks insane- want that salmon sashimi…perfection!

  50. It seems like you need to move back there so your tummy will be happy. Make sure you move in the week of April 17, so i will be there. OR you wait, cause after that I will be in San Diego to celebrate my bday with Laura. Ahahahaha!!
    This is such a seafid envy post, I can hardly survive. I need to run to my kitchen now and grill up some humongous scallops.

    • DUDE WHEN WHEN WHEN exactly are you going to SD! That is FAR MORE REALISTICCCCCCCC!!!!! Holy crap! Lets start PLANNING THIS!!!

  51. You ate dragon? Wow! You are my hero!!!

  52. I just drooled on myself…can I go next time!!??

  53. I have a friend who is celiac and allergic to soy (and a lot of other things). A couple years ago she traveled to South America for a couple of months. While she was there, she ate everything, wheat included, and had NO problems whatsoever. What is it with our food that makes it so toxic? (well, I can think of a lot of things, but just throwing it out there.

    Also, when I still ate meat, my husband and i went to a little hole in the wall Middle Eastern restaurant once a week for their chicken shawarma. OH MY GOD! Plus the servings were so big I’d have enough for lunch the next day. Never got tired of it. I’ve made my own vegan version, but if that restaurant was still around today….well, I’d be mighty tempted, that’s all I can say.

    • Isn’t that weird!!!! I HAVE heard other stories just like that too! It’s downright baffling to me! I don’t know what the US does with their food but it scares me to even think about it. When you enter NZ, you are not allowed to have ANY food from the states with you!! It’s nuts.

      AND YES! I KNOW how much you love shawarma!!!!!!!! 😀 That is why we are soul mates! ha ha

  54. Some great food adventures you had, Gi Gi! I am down with most of it, especially Shawarma (a little bias) :-)
    I don’t know about eating dragon though. Fun post, thanks for sharing!

  55. Mmmm Salmon!! That was a fuck ton of delicious food pictures. Now I want to raid my fridge lol

  56. I’m not hungry now, right!

    I was in St. Louis, of all places, with my dad for a medical meeting, which I don’t remember, and after we went to see the Blues play hockey, which I do remember. On that trip we were taken to some country club that had a buffet with lobster served five different ways and lots of other stuff.

    One night on an Alaskan cruise when they had salmon for dinner, I ordered a second dinner, lol!!

    If you lived in Alaska, the Grizzly Bears would have you on their wanted list for hogging all the salmon!

  57. Beautiful. I’m so hungry now, I better get off the computer and make my lunch.

  58. I’m glad you enjoyed all the delicious food there! You and I like pretty opposite kinds of foods, but we can still be friends 😉 My perfect feast would be something like a huge salad with grilled chicken and then a big piece of chocolate cake for dessert. Or some delicious pasta and ice cream…lotsa carbs :)

    • I am all about that chicken salad though, so watch out, I might eat it when you’re not looking 😉 — But if we otherwise eat opposites, that’s great because we will never have to worry about eating each other’s foods! LOL!

  59. So much awesome looking seafood! That would be amazing. Dragon, though? Ack!

  60. Oh, New Zealand looks like a fairy tale land! My favorite type of fish? Salmon. Don’t like ginger. Do you? All these pics together in one post are a foodie’s delight :)
    Enjoy your weekend, (stomach ache free I hope).

    • THANKS BARBARA! And you’re 100% right – NZ is a fairy tale! It was 100% surreal! :) And I ADORE salmon just like you!

  61. Well, hello, talk about a first timer in the life of GiGi Eats Celebrities: a full-on scope of all that MINUS the celebrities. I figure you need to take some of VIPs with you next time to teach them how to eat properly.
    Honestly, I liked seeing what you eat and that you actually EAT a lot like you always say but never show. No skimping on those serving sizes :) !

    • Ah ha ha! Yes, you caught on, I never really show what I eat because I try not to make ME a big focus on the blog!! 😉 But I thought, hey, why not – it’s 2015, change is always necessary every so often! ha ha. PS: I have missed you! I am off to stalk you RIGHT NOW!

  62. From another foodie blogger I have to admit your site is absolutely delicious !!!! The Octopus looks soo yummy I love all kinds of seafood !
