I saw Jinya Ramen Bar's current special Ramen posted online recently, and thought St. Patrick's day weekend was the perfect time to try something so... green, haha.
The Green Monster Ramen consists of green chicken broth, chicken chashu, green onions, crispy kale, crispy onions, and green kale noodles. This dish should be available at all Jinya Ramen Bar locations through the end of May 2019.
Yes, it really is THAT green! The green broth especially took a little time to get used to, but this was very delicious! I especially liked the crispy kale topping and the kale noodles, to feel slightly healthier about eating Ramen, haha. I would definitely recommend trying it out while it is available!

St. Patrick's day is already over, but I had to share this cute holiday-themed cupcake that's available at Georgetown Cupcake this month!
The Baileys Chocolate Mint cupcake is a "chocolate cupcake infused with non-alcoholic Baileys essence and topped with a light green non-alcoholic Baileys essence-infused buttercream frosting, a mint chocolate ganache lattice drizzle, shamrock confetti sprinkles, and a gold fondant shamrock embossed with Baileys “BB” logo". Honestly, mint chocolate is not my preferred flavor, but I really liked how festive this was, especially with the tiny shamrock sprinkles and the mint green colored frosting. And their chocolate cake is always delicious!
I also purchased their Rainbow cupcake because I thought it looked good with the St. Patrick's day theme, haha. The Rainbow cupcake is "a classic Madagascar vanilla cupcake infused with rainbow nonpareils and topped with a baby blue-tinted Madagascar vanilla buttercream frosting, and a sour candy rainbow". A perfect companion to the pot of Baileys gold!
