La Folie

  La Folie isn’t your average restaurant.  It is an experience.  This is fine dining defined.  It is not for the light hearted or penny pincher’s.  La Folie is amazing but it’s hard on your pocket book.  I had the pleasure to experience this cuisine only because it was my 4 year dating anniversary with … Continue reading »

Terzo

This January I went Terzo for a friend’s birthday dinner and was blown away.  Located in Cow Hollow, this Italian restaurant had me urging for more.   Terzo is a casual but yet sophisticated restaurant that features both small and large plates.   This interesting combo allows you to try a variety of small meals or … Continue reading »

Zushi Puzzle

So I finally remembered to take photos at Zushi Puzzle.  It is literally the best sushi in San Francisco but I will say that Sushi In is a very close second!  Everything is so fresh that it comes to your table still moving.  That may sound gross but that’s true for the live uni which … Continue reading »

Sushi In Again!

            House Salad: Mixed green salad, tomato, and avocado with ginger vinegar dressing. Sushi In anyone?  Yes please.  Once again my husband found ourselves at our beloved Sushi In.  It’s great sushi at a great price.  Zushi Puzzle is still just a tad better but it comes with a high … Continue reading »

Myanmar formally Burma and Loas

In order to enter Myanmar, a communist society, you must leave your passport with them and get a new passport issued.  Then once you leave the country, you get your passport back and must give them the one that they made you.  It’s kind of a fun process. I have to say that Myanmar is … Continue reading »

The Golden Triangle!

Love love love the Golden Triangle.  The Golden Triangle is Northern Thailand, Loas and Myanmar also known as Burma.  It is this amazing place where all three countries literally touch one another but are separated by a river.  It is an incredible area with a rich history, beautiful people, amazing cultures, and truly breath taking scenery.  It … Continue reading »

Thailand

I wanted to share more of my honeymoon moments in Thailand .  This is what you would find in Central and Southern Thailand.  The Thai food was amazing but the western food was terrible.  It looked good but the taste was just not there.  It’s so interesting how flavorful Thai food is but when it … Continue reading »

Life in Hong Kong

As promised, I wanted to share pictures from my honeymoon.  We didn’t do the usual honeymoon but rather explored Asia.  Our first stop was Hong Kong.  It is an interesting place that is a combination of metropolitan with a little something different.  The culture, atmosphere and scenery is so different from anything we have ever … Continue reading »

Bar Agricole

Yum, yum and yum!  New Years Eve, this was the place to be.  Well, it just so happened that this was the only restaurant that could fit our group of 13.  Little did we know that it was meant to be!  The food was excellent, the service was impeccable and everyone working there was incredibly nice.  They … Continue reading »

Sushi In

I may have a problem but I did mention that I adore sushi.  Well, I have another city favorite that may be as good as Zushi Puzzle.   Sushi In is the newest sushi addition to the Marina district of San Francisco.  The sushi is excellent.  It is pretty affordable compared to other places.  It isn’t … Continue reading »

The Best Sushi in Menlo Park

If you’re looking for sushi in Menlo Park, California, Akasaka is the place for you.  It isn’t cheap but it’s good.  Is it the best sushi I’ve ever had?  No, Zushi Puzzle is still my number one but Akasaka is definitely in the top 5.  Now, I’m no sushi expert but I’ve had more than my fair share of … Continue reading »

Sauce

With a name like sauce, it has to be good.  Well, it was!  It really was!  It was so good that we went back the following weekend with another group of friends because we loved it so much.  What’s not to love when you see what amazing food and drinks they cook up for their … Continue reading »

Bottle Cap

Yum, yum, and yum.  The food was amazing, the service was okay but the waitress was funny.  She kept keeping us drinking so we’d forget that the kitchen was backed up.  This year old restaurant in North Beach was well worth it’s rave reviews.  All the food came out hot, delicious and beyond our expectations. … Continue reading »

Tanpopo Restaurant & Bar

I love Japan Town in San Francisco.  I find true gems that are good, cheap and always a great experience.   I always leave happy and extremely satisfied.   This time I decided to try Tanpopo  Restaurant and Bar.  It didn’t look like anything special from the outside but it was busting inside.  The locals were all … Continue reading »

Country Sky Best Chinese Restaurant

Family owned, family run and family loved, this is the place to get Chinese food in San Francisco or at least in the Marina.  You cannot go wrong if you order take out which is promptly delivered to your door or dine in.  The food is simply amazing and authentic.  The won ton soup is my favorite.  I … Continue reading »

Lunching at Neiman Marcus’s The Rotunda

There is nothing like lunching at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco.  Plain and simple, it’s a treat and an experience.  There really is not much more that I can say but to show you exactly why! Your first experience inside is this breath taking view.  It’s simply stunning. Sitting at your table…this is your view. … Continue reading »

Cedar Hill

Who says that great BBQ can only come from the south?  Not us in San Francisco!  Cedar Hill is breaking the mold.  Not only do they have AMAZING BBQ with every famous BBQ sauce possible (I love NC personally) but they make a mean brunch menu.  However, after eating here, you’re not going to want … Continue reading »

Hearty French Potato Casserole

Again, another AMAZING recipe from Cook’s Illustrated Magazine: Issue 115, March + April 2012.  The subtitle to this recipe is what intrigued us, “In the old days, this rich dish got its deep flavor and silky texture from meat drippings.  Could we get the same luxurious results without a roast?”  I don’t know about you but that … Continue reading »

Pesce Seafood Bar + Restaurant

Not too long ago, I was looking at restaurants to try on Polk street with a friend.  Pesce kept coming up with rave reviews.   I thought it had to be good with over 500 reviews and 4 out of 5 stars. Sadly, that night would not be my first experience at Pesce.  Rather, a … Continue reading »

Café Castagna a french delight

What a great find!  This place was a true gem.  I always wanted to try this place but never had.  Then last night that all changed.  My fiancé and I had planned to go to our favorite place for dinner, Pacific Catch but something just made us want to try Café Castagna.  There was no … Continue reading »

Sonoma Weekend Away

One of the best parts of living in San Francisco is that just a short car ride away, Sonoma Valley awaits you with open arms.  This laid back valley is pure ecstasy to those wine connoisseurs or just heaven to wine newbies.  Either way, with great wine comes amazing cuisine.  Some of the best restaurants in … Continue reading »

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit Menlo Park, California.  It’s a true gem of the area and 100% delicious.  It’s always pack full of devoted fans that have been coming in for years.  It’s a town favorite if you asked most people.  I’ve never known of a person who … Continue reading »

The 36th Annual Union Street Festival

Union Street Festival is one of my favorite events in San Francisco.  Held in the Cow Hollow district between Gough and Steiner, this free event showcases art, food, culture, and fun.  This year, I choose to take my camera and document the event by capturing some of the booths, food and of course animals.  No … Continue reading »
