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!

Hana Hou

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii! We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines . Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing: and a big brownie!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
