I found a local seafood restaurant that was running a crab festival menu to celebrate my Aunt Daphne’s birthday. They were super accommodating and let me bring in my homemade NY […]

Midweek Date @ Nopa

So for some time now, Hubs and I have been trying to head up to SF to eat at Nopa after our friend Ben raved about how they made the best pork chops. EVER. Growing up, I never had a fondness for pork chops, until about two years ago, we stopped in at Martin’s West […]

We were lucky enough to be blessed by the presence of 3 Sum Eats at work. The menu looked enticing and the food looked delicious! We went out there and picked up the cornflake fried chicken sandwich. Verdict? Absolutely delicious!

NYC Day 3-4! (Wall Street, Katz’s, Eileen Cheesecakes, Grand Central Station, Onya, Memphis, More Yakitori!)

It was our last full day in NYC. We stayed at the W Hotel and they offered an AWESOME car service! I had booked us an appointment for them to take us down to Wall Street. On the way there, the driver went by the WTC Pit. It was a sobering experience; to see the […]

NYC – Day 0-0.5! (Ess-A-Bagel, Helicopter Ride!)

Hubs and I have never been to NYC so given that it’s only a short flight away, we planned a quick trip out there for Memorial Day. Apologies to those who have already seen the photos on Facebook but those albums are not exactly conducive in letting me spout off my various thoughts. The flight […]

Urban Bistro by SF Soup Kitchen

When Jenn and I saw the signs that SF Soup Kitchen was coming to downtown Burlingame, we both danced our happy soup dances and got soup-er excited. I love their soups but unfortunately there weren’t any locations close to me. The only time I got it was when I had physical therapy and could pick […]

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 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 […]
