"America wanna see me live, not work. Look at this America...." @VAKSEEN
(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) weekend in SF & the 1st #food stop is #Roosevelttamaleparlor. All I want to talk about is this greatness you see in the front…their infamous #chivatamale (caramelized butternut squash & yams w/ goat cheese smothered in tomatillo sauce w/ cheese, crema & pumpkin seeds)😳🙏💃. Ummm amazing is an understatement! I loved how the subtle sweetness of the veggies are balanced by the distinct flavor & freshness of the goat cheese. The sweet, citrusy flavor of the tomatillo is simply icing on the cake. Excellent way to kick of this trip!

(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) perfect way to start my week out healthy! ❤️@pitfirenoho for their consistency & this #kalesalad (Shaved #Kale, Sweet & Sour #Dates, Parmesan, Toasted Almond, Red Onion & Mint) definitely delivered! The combination of flavors is excellent as you get a slight hint of citrus, paired with the perfect sweetness from the dates. We added grilled chicken to ours but you could definitely eat it without. Pitfire is def one of my favs in Noho

I collaborated with the bro @marlontravisbarrow at #SPACEDOUT on my upcoming project, the #DesignerEP to bring you some special music. I always take my time with music to make sure I can present something of quality, something that pushes me to be a better artists…something that can be classic and both timeless. I studied and created a new world for my music where I can use all my life experiences as a fabric and tailor cut #designer music with envelope pushing sound, fun, thoughtful, lyrics….everything that’s me and everything that is life…

#DesignerEP slated for November 4th. Executive produced by @marlontravisbarrow

(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) just finished the official welcome home meal @YBSouthern 😩😴. I’ve been dying to come here since I left & FML they delivered! We shared this #chickennwatermelonnwaffles 🌚😹which came with their classic half #friedchicken, honey hot sauce, chilled #spicedwatermelon (chili & lime or lemon), a cheddar cheese #waffle topped with #chowchow (green tomatoes, celery, onion & pickle) & bourbon maple syrup. Mannnnnnnn🙏🏊😴 talk about itis! The serving size is deffff for 2! The flavors for each item are so distinct & amazing, yet they work well collectively!! The fried chicken was soooo juicy & the honey hot sauce is liquid crack💉! The waffle….wow! Crispy outer with a fluffy center! I’ve never had chow chow before but it had a subtle sweetness so it paired well with the cheddar, waffle & syrup. The watermelon had a freshness that basically cleansed your pallet as you took each bite. Overall, an amazing experience! Great food, service & cocktails! I see exactly what the rave is all about!

(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) so we finally have a new #thai spot literally across the street from us & based on last night it’s AMAZING!🙌 (top right, clockwise) sharing everything, we started with the #tomyum #chicken #soup (broth w/ lemongrass, roasted chili paste & fresh mushrooms) & the fresh flavor grabbed my attention off rip. Wow! There was an amazing hint of lime & the broth alone was the kind that you slurp up & send back a clean bowl😂. U might even eat the bowl… @chelle79er  did 😹😩. Next they brought out the #pineapplefriedrice 😍 (chicken, onions, tomatoes, raisins, cashews & pineapple) & omggg🙌. As hard as it is to call a fav, this may be it. The flavor combination is incredible & I loved what the sweet #pineapple does to this dish. They didn’t list it on the menu but I’m pretty sure there’s curry in the rice as well. It was so subtle though that this dish was perfect. Finally, they brought out the #drunkennoodle w/ chicken (flat #ricenoodles stir fried w/ chili, bell peppers, tomatoes & basil leaves) which was incredibly fresh as well & flavored perfectly. I love that they used chicken breast for everything & I pray they’re consistent. Service was on point & seeing how they’re only 2 weeks old, they’re giving you 10% off through Oct💃. Excellent experience #5stars🌟

(#Vakseenart #art) as my newest #painting #BrilliantDope dries, I thank God for the blessing of vision & creativity. I also reflect on the materialistic, walking, talking contradictions…the brilliant dopes. The homies said it best… “All the diamonds and all the gold can’t save our ratchet souls…”🙏👑💎

(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) I thought I dreamt this😩. Amazing is an understatement for what @theGorbals does with their #grilledcheese🙏….Pistachio butter, fig jam & a red frill mustard salad🙌💃WOW!!! If you could imagine putting honey on a grilled cheese, that’s exactly what the flavor reminded me of, just not as sweet as that. Of all the tapas we had this was my fav. Perfectly done man! #TheGorbals

(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) just enough time for a quick lunch @chinopoblano b4 heading back to LA. I love the creative mix of Asian & Mexican cuisine at this spot. I ordered light….went with the #caldotlalpeno soup (shredded #chicken, rice, peas, carrots & avocado topped with a #chipotlepepper) & the #empanadadepollo con #molepoblano. Both dishes were great but the #soup was the standout dish of the 2. Clearly a fresh soup, the flavors were excellent. The chipotle pepper added a subtle spice that was actually a perfect balance to the other flavors present. I love mole and the empanadas were good, but I’ve had better mole. Still very tasty, I just think the mole could’ve been more rich. Soup 5/5. Empanadas 4/5.

(#Vakseen4taste #foodie) last night in #Vegas = final bday dinner @STKLasVegas. Excellent excellent excellent🙏. The buttery cheese bread in the top left…CRACKKKK💉. I ordered the #crabravioli & a side of #haricotvert (w/ soy glaze) & the flavor profile for each dish was so amazing & distinct. Wow! Great experience!
