    Spicy Fried Chicken at Seoul Garden Korean Restaurant in State College, Pennsylvania

    This dish is beautifully executed. I'm already drooling just to see it, the red sauce is very tempting. It's hot at first bite, the chicken meat is wonderful, mixed perfectly with the sauce. Sweet and sour and savory, they are all there. It's definitely nommed!

    Jersey Mike's Famous Philly at Jersey Mike's Subs in State College, Pennsylvania

    You don't have to go to Philly to eat Pat's or Geno's cheesesteak. There's Jersey's Mike in State College, and Mike's cheesesteak is even better than those cheesesteak's icons in Philly (Diniq's better though). The steak is so thin, makes it so tender, the cheese is incredibly savory, blends perfectly with the steak. My tip is that you eat it while hot. $6.45

    Chicken Chimichanga at Mad Mex in State College, PA

    I saw this dish at foodspotting, suceeded making me drooling. And i must admit, this dish is really delicious. The taste is similar like burrito but it is so meaty. The wrap is also crunchy because it is deep fried. The chicken breast is so tender and warm and stays that way after a while (my assumption it's because it is wrapped and deep fried). What I really love is the red and avocado sauce. Completely nom nom. $10

    Bourbon Chicken Over Rice at Yummy Cafe in State College, Pennsylvania

    Wow, I definitely am gonna order this food again. It's perfect! The portion is big but I had to finish it because i did not want it to be wasted (Because it's too good!). The chicken tastes sweet and savory at the same time and the texture of the chicken is so soft. The bourbon sauce is amazing. I even could not miss the onion because it was so good. $ 6.65

    BBQ ribs at Seoul Garden Korean Restaurant in State College, Pennsylvania

    I always love Korean BBQ beef ribs. The BBQ sauce blends perfectly with the ribs. Heaven. The best part is the ribs. After you cut the beef part from the ribs, you can bite the sticky beef part in the ribs, that's the savory part of this dish. The portion is not that big for 14 $. But Nom Nom

    Farmhouse Roast Beef at Irving's in State College, Pa

    This is my second best sandwich in Irving's after Holiday Turkey Sandwich. Totally Nom Nom! I loved the sliced onions in it, sweet and savory at one bite. The roast beef is so thick, but it's so tender, mixed perfectly with the soft onions and the crunchy wheat bread. $ 6.95

    Chicken Burrito at Chipotle Mexican Grill - Penn State University in State College, PA

    Chipotle is the best place when you don't have much money and cravin' for Mexican food. It's affordable and the taste is pretty good. The best part of Chipotle is that the portion is huge. The wrap was soft and chewy, the mixed brown rice chicken with hot sauce was so yummy, cravin' for more. Appr. $ 8.50 #burrito #Mexican

    Rice Cakes at Kimchi Korean Restaurant in State College, PA

    Delicious spicy Korean rice cakes. Who does not know this dish. It's always there in almost every Korean drama. The spicy feeling is perfect as appetizer. This is my first time eating rice cakes with boiled egg in it. Perfect! $6.99

    Diced Chicken with Dried Hot Pepper at Peking Garden in State College, PA

    This can be considered as one of my favorite Chinese dishes in State College. The chicken was so tender so that I didn't have to give a lot of effort chewing it. The dried pepper was the winner, it was so crispy and savory. But I drank a lot because of its greasiness and it tasted a little bit salty. Well, great things create great sacrifices :p. Price $9.99

    Chocolate Chocolate Nut at Berkey Creamery in University Park, PA

    This is the best ice cream flavor i've ever tasted. the chocolate was unbelievably tasty with the nut sensation. The only problem is that you can't eat that giant portion alone

    Crab Meat Wonton at Big Bowl Noodle House in State College, PA

    The wontons are amazing. I've tasted wonton before, but it did not have the sweet, creamy taste like this one. The crab meat blends with the creamy cheesy sauce. It's a new taste and I crave for more. $2.60

    Holiday Turkey Sandwich at Irving's in State College, Pa

    Wanted it at first, seeing that everybody in foodspotting likes it. And they are right! This sandwich is amazing. The turkey is so tender mixed with sweet cranberry sauce, heaven. I experienced a layer of surprise at my first bite, it was soft and savory, my guess it's some kind of mashed potato. Nom Nom just for 7 dollars! Totally recommend it!
