San Francisco Bay Area Trip '12

Last June my fiance and I went to the SF Bay Area for a day and a half... to eat!  Well that was just one of the reasons for our short trip.  Since it was his first time visiting there, I wanted him to try as much foods as he could and we succeeded!

The night we arrived, we came to this phở place, Pho Huong in San Jose. This restaurant was one of the few late night joints in town.  I remember the broth was excellent (it was not too salty, I know I say that a lot in my posts haha)! And I was glad to see they had a phở dish that only came with vegetables (for my fiance):


Shrimp spring rolls

I was so craving for beef..

The next morning before we headed out to San Francisco, we had brunch at Falafel's Drive - In.  We all got this special that included a falafel with a banana shake.  I loved this special!  For the first time ever the falafel was the best I've had! And the banana shake was really creamy:

At Fisherman's Wharf, I had to go back to Boudin Bakery and let Bronsen try their Clam Chowder:


Rustic Tomato Soup
We came to Sally's Famous Fishwich based on Yelp reviews.  Bronsen agreed with the reviews because this was the best fish sandwich he's had:


Yum

We walked all over the area in Fisherman's Wharf and here are some random foods I saw:





A Sweet Potato Brownie from Hot Spud, it was an awesome special brownie!

@ Castro District

For dinner we went to Fuji Sukiyaki in San Mateo to grub on some sashimi
  I felt like I was in a neighborhood restaurant near my home, it was nice.  The place had a few tatami rooms, wish we could've ate in one, but I noticed them when half way done eating!



I hope this food trip was memorable my love and thanks Chris for showing us around!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB Café Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB Café .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !
