Happy Valentine’s Day! While Valentine’s Day is usually celebrated with a lot of chocolate and flowers, I thought I’d share this savory dish as a possible choice for your loved one.

Soft boiled egg covered in a crispy bacon breadcrumb. Yummy.


Just wanted to make a quick announcement that Kirbie’s Cravings now has a Facebook page set up! I’ve received many requests in the past, but I didn’t really see the point in having a Facebook page.

But after talking to several people, I began to see why people might want to follow along via Facebook instead of Twitter, Rss, etc. So even though it’s kind of late to start one now, I’ve created a page!

In addition to updates on new posts, I hope to also share photos and other tidbits that I don’t have on the blog or on Twitter to keep it interesting.

If you wish to follow my blog via Facebook, please “like” the page. Thanks!


A few weeks ago I had to take care of some wedding things in LA, which gave me an excuse to partake in some delicious eats with some fellow LA food bloggers.  We paid a visit to Flaming Spice, an all you can eat hot pot place.

Danny of Kung Food Panda suggested the place, and since I love trying out new hot pot spots, I readily agreed.  Also in our group were Rosa of The Catty Critic, her husband, her new adorable baby, Limer35, FH and my baby brother.

Look at me. I have the most adorable pinchable cheeks.

Flaming Spice is located in a fairly new plaza that I haven’t been to before. I liked the water fountain and the hanging lights.

I didn’t take as many pictures as usual and the photos I did take were quick and I didn’t really check the quality of the shots. I was too busy eating and chatting. Plus it was a little hard to maneuver around to take pictures of everything.

There’s quite a few things that make this restaurant stand out from other hot pot places I’ve tried in the past:

Ingredients Arrive in a Dim Sum Cart

I’ve seen AYCE hot pots that are displayed buffet style, and ones where you order and they bring the food to you. I’ve never seen the ingredients being pushed around in dim sum style carts. The servers walk around and when they get to your table, you point to what you want. I was worried that they might not come over frequently enough, but we had no problems getting all our ingredients.
