    Eating roast meat on the beach?

    Imagine me sitting under the shade of a colorful umbrella on a beach in Honolulu tanning my toes and enjoying a plate of Hong Kong roast meat rice and a cup of milk tea. Well, yeah, that…

  • Beefing about Mrs Daggers

    Hoping to beef up our rather sad Picky Eater Approved Restaurant List, we went to a new (to us) Korean restaurant and ended up beefing about Mrs Daggers instead. We’ve visited this eatery once before. The place…

  • Herbal chicken noodle soup, the real deal

    That #herbal noodle #soup

    I love it when menus come with photos of the food. At least it gives me some idea of what I’m getting. But photos can be misleading at best. A photo could look really good, leading you…

    Apparently it’s William Shakespeare’s birthday today. Well, history has it that he was born and died on the same day. It turns out those aren’t the only coincidences ‘cos, what do you know, today also happens to…

    In the early evening, we took a break from an afternoon’s ‘hard work’ and headed out for dinner at Saigon 2 Siam, an Indochinese restaurant we’d discovered on our previous trip to Gilroy. Back then, we’d gone…

  • Bowled over

    We had to make a trip to the k-mart to stock up on kimchi, gojuchang and some other supplies. The k-mart is kinda out of the way for us and it doesn’t open till 12:00pm on Sundays.…

  • Dessert, to the uninitiated

    We were in the middle of dinner at home on a Thursday night when Hip2bDad broached the idea of going out for dessert. It took a while for the idea to sink in. Usually you’d hear me…
