Girls’ Night Out! :)

I met up with the lovely Miss Sarah and Miss Song Hee for a girl’s night out over good food. After a few email rounds to decide food options, we ended up at Madura, known for their vegetarian South Indian cuisine. I made my way down to Cupertino and met up with the lovely ladies. […]

Oyster Stew

Wow… I’m really bad at uploading my pictures. Since I found my memory card, I also found the pictures from the oyster stew I made from the oyster trip Sam and I took a few months ago. I shucked a bunch of oysters before we left and took them back in my previous ziplock faux […]

Another Napa Weekend (Part 3 – Brix Restaurant!)

We finished up our Napa trip with a meal at Brix. Originally the guys wanted to go to Redd for the tasting menu but they were fully booked. Sam and I were planning on sitting out the Redd tasting menu since it would have been a $200+ hit to feed the both of us. Thankfully […]

Another Napa Weekend (Part 2 – Castello di Amarosa, Alpha Omega, Brix)

We drove up to Castello di Amarosa to check out the winery after our lunch at Mustards Grill. I’m making a mental note that for all future Napa trips I’m going to try to avoid driving through St. Helena since the traffic on weekends is horrendous. We caravan-ed up to Castello, found parking and made […]

Another Napa Weekend! (Part 1 – Mustards Grill)

This past weekend our foodie friend Danny, came up to visit. Danny visiting means that Sam and I budget out calories carefully the week prior to his arrival so that we can partake in the gluttony of great food. Last year we gorged ourselves in San Francisco for the entire day, and followed it up […]

Dine About Town – E Tutto Qua…. Super Late Post!

So we had this dinner back in January and I finally found the memory card where the photos were on. Sadly it took the email I got about the June Dine About Town for me to start looking for my old January pictures. Ben picked the place and we did a quick cost-return analysis and […]

Clover Bakery of Yummyness!

I’ve been itching to check out Clover Bakery since I saw it on the “Hot on Yelp” list a year ago. Unfortunately it’s not in my normal range of stomping grounds. The first time I had it was when I was driving from Cupertino to my parents’ house in Cupertino last month and I took […]

Lazy Sunday Brunch…

When Sam and I were dating, we would frequent Hobee’s in the Bay Area. I was pretty addicted to their blueberry coffee crumb cake. It had been awhile since we had brunch there so on Sunday, we stopped by. And then everything fell into place on why we don’t go anymore. Brunch took us a […]

Late Spring…

The weather this year has been funky; El Nino or La Nina has been playing tricks with nature. We had an unusually late Spring this year. The tulips that we planted bloomed in late April and our wisteria vines are full blossom now. It’s hard to believe that is is May and it feels like […]

Shalala Ramen!

I’m a happy gal when Sam takes me out to dinner, for many reasons actually… I definitely fall into the category of “I live to eat” instead of “eating to live” and my days revolve around what my next meal is. Furthermore, it’s nice to not have to cook on the weekdays after putting a […]
