Little Rock, Arkansas - Chi's Chinese Express (Update)

                  Hey everyone! I haven't done a restaurant review in a while, so here we go! I went a few weeks ago to a Chinese restaurant in Chenal, called Chi's Chinese Express.There is no website, but this UrbanSpoon link has the address for their location, and this Sync Weekly post mentions another location on Shackleford Drive.
       The interior of the diner is simple, and has all the basic amenities needed for a food establishment. It was styled very simply, and reminded me of an industrial cafeteria setting, somewhat. My brother took me on a day when my appetite wasn't very big, so I ordered a side dish; it was shrimp with crab sauce and sliced wonton, I think. (Which I do recommend; it was light and held me up for a few hours without upsetting my stomach.) The place is not something for a date, or fancy get together, but Chi's does have a big and hearty menu of lo mien, dumplings, and other common Chinese take out for when you're hungry. Be advised though, it's made to go, so the preparation will take some 10-20 minutes depending on what you are ordering.

                                              At the table. Am not sure what it's for ~
         Hey! I've been to Chi's again in the fall of 2013, and ordered lomein. I was so surprised to see that the whole place was renovated! Here's photos of the place in the latest renovation:

Holiday Halloween Peeps~

     Hey guys! Once again, I'm too lazy and tired to make a long post, about much of anything really, so I found the perfect thing to talk about,haha!
           So how many of you have eaten Peeps marshmallows? They are typically known for their marshmallow chicks that come out around Easter time, but they expanded to get all the major holidays in the U.S.A, lol. If you don't know what they are, here is their website. They also have a search engine on their site to see where you can purchase their products, which is a handy thing I'm noticing alot of food and beverage sites are doing. XD
           So, for a way overdue post, this was to show my discovery of their Halloween chocolate marshmallow treats, with orange colored marshmallow inside! I thought it was cute and quirky, and didn't taste bad at all! (If you have a sweet tooth like me, that is!) So here is some photos I took around Halloween of it~

Boylan Soda

 Hey everyone! Today's post will be a short one, since I don't feel like writing much. If you'll look at this post, you'll see I was talking about a vintage soda brand sold in New York. Well, it looks like there are other similar brands of vintage bottle sodas, and the latest one I discovered is called Boylan Soda. (Their website is here.) Boylan soda takes pride in their brand for using pure cane sugar, and for having a natural version of their sodas available, with no preservatives and such. They also sell birch beers, and seltzers, with a beer recipe used from the founder in 1891. The website has a search so you can see where you can purchase it in your area.~ So if you're like me, and like trying flavored soda in vintage soda bottles, go give it a try!
