Marché Bacchus

For a girls' day out, my friends and I went to eat some French food at Marché Bacchus for lunch.  On Mondays to Fridays, this restaurant offers the Lakefront Lunch menu.  You have the choice of two courses with a complimentary house wine.  Along with this $19.95 lunch special, you are seated outside at the restaurant's patio, don't worry it's in a comfortable and cool area with mists and ceiling fans everywhere and you'll see lovely view of Lake Jacqueline while dining there.

Starting off the meal with some light and fluffy bread
with butter.

Soupe Du Jour: the chef's daily creation of the day was this chill soup of mainly
watermelon juice and a little salt.  Great to drink during a hot summer day!

Portobello Mushroom Burger-  roasted peppers and onions, arugula,
herbed goat cheese, balsamic reduction, and a whole wheat bun.  This
was such a great burger because I loved how this portobello mushroom
was cooked!  It was tender yet still retained it's thick flesh.  I also enjoyed the
frites (fries), it was not greasy, lightly salted, and had a nice crunch to it.

Half Pound Burger- came with horseradish black pepper aioli, cheddar cheese,
pickled red onion and arugula.  The beef was also very tender!

Poulet Frites- pan roasted farm raised chicken paillard, pomme frites, and
natural jus.  Again this meat was also tender.  I was impressed with these simple
dishes!

 Trio Sorbet- when we saw it on the menu we thought it would
be cold like gelato, but it was soft, somewhat like pudding with a clear glaze of sweetness
on top.  This was definitely one of the best desserts I've had.  These three flavors
blended with each other so well!

A big Créme Brulee- with vanilla bean custard and caramelized sugar

Part of the view of Lake Jacqueline.  This made the vibe more relaxing and
there were pretty black swans to see!

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Maui & Oahu Trip '15

Earlier in July my husband I spent a couple weeks in Hawai'i.  We went to Maui (my first time there) then to O'ahu.  While in Hawai'i I got to see the differences and similarities between Maui and O'ahu.  The one thing both islands had in common was that there was delicious food everywhere!  Here are some of my favorite places we grubbed at and interesting foods we saw:
Jack's Inn When we arrived in Maui, we were craving some local food so we asked a few locals what were good local spots to eat at near the airport.  Locals were recommending Jack's Inn so we went there for breakfast.  It's a small diner with a simple menu:

I chose the Crazy Omelette with meats that the Hawaiian locals love- 2 eggs with Spam, Vienna Sausage, Portuguese sausage, and green onions!  Despite the variety of meats, I'm glad that one meat didn't overpower the other:

Jack's Inn 312 Alamaha St Kahului, HI 96732 (808) 877-3610


Miso Phat Sushi Right near our hotel was Miso Ph…

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!
