Dungeness Crab’s in Season!!

Every year, we eagerly await the winter time because that’s when the fattest juiciest Dungeness crabs are available. And they are seriously good noms! 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 […]

Fish. Before and After.

Hubs and I both love seafood; probably a little bit too much. More often than not, we get cravings for a yummy whole steamed live fish. Granted it’s far from live when it’s served to us but there’s just something so delicious about plucking the meat off a freshly steamed fish that was just flopping […]

Ocha Tea Cafe

We had a late weekend lunch with our friend James at Ocha Tea Cafe after hearing him rave about it for a few weeks now. The tea house serves Taiwanese cuisine which made my stomach happy. The prices here were reasonable and the service was fairly fast. I ordered the German pork hock meal which […]

Martin’s West Gastropub

Last year, Jennifer introduced me to Martin’s West Gastropub and ever since Sam and I stepped foot in, I’ve been a huge fan. Combine that with the restaurant participating in the restaurant.com coupons, make me an even bigger fan. They are the restaurant that got me completely hooked on pork chops. Growing up, the only […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chez Spencer

We celebrated a friend’s birthday out in SF earlier this week at Chez Spencer. Since I already went on my rant about how irritated I was, here are the happy points to this meal. Actually, the food wasn’t THAT great… the soup had fish bones in there but no seafood. BLeargh. Steak was delicious but […]

Seattle Trip *Part 3 – Last Hurrah before Flying Back!*

After our dinner @ Maneki’s, we drove around Seattle to sightsee at night. Which resulted in me driving across the Roosevelt Bridge no less than 3 times, slapping each other with our newly invented game of Starbucks-Slap, and checking out ANOTHER grocery store called QFC. Prior to hitting the sack, we headed back up towards […]
