[NYC - Midtown] Riko Peruvian Cuisine

Riko Peruvian is open for takeout and delivery at its Sunnyside, Jackson Heights, Chelsea, and Jamaica locations, just go to to order online or call them at the phone numbers on their website.

These were delicious and I don't know if they come with your order when you order takeout or delivery, but if it doesn't make sure you go back when in-person dining is back!

This is the Jalea ($32). It is a mountain of fried squid, shrimp, and fish. Then, it is topped with onions, mussels, and crab. How can you go wrong with fried food? Definitely not with this food. I am pretty sure I'd want to get something more interesting next time, but this is a dish that can definitely please any eater.

This is the Chaufa de Pina - pineapple fried rice ($19). I really wanted ceviche, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices in life. This was also a very safe dish. It is served in a pineapple. It was pretty good - fried rice with seafood and pineapple. I wish that they would have cut up the half of a pineapple it was served in, though. But, they just took it away when we finished and said they don't cut it again. I guess I get it from a department of health standpoint, but from a food waste standpoint, it made me sad.

All in all, I know what was ordered wasn't a good representative of what Riko has to offer, but if you're ordering in and wanting to please the pickiest of eaters, definitely go for what we ordered!

Next time, I am definitely going to get that ceviche.

I did get a red sangria. It was fine, but I don't know if I would order it again in the future, to be honest, but Riko does have a pretty good happy hour selection for those of you who work nearby.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
