Pho Huong

Pho is the ultimate comfort food. Nothing beats an oversized bowl of hot beefy broth in an abundance of slippery noodles. I like getting a mouthful of noodles, thinly sliced beef, crunchy bean sprouts and basil all in one bite. For this post, let's listen to something pho-nomenal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0rWLeBDG7s I like Pho Huong Vietnamese Noodle… Continue reading Pho Huong

Redheads

My husband and I dine at Redheads every week. Recently, Redheads started to offer Japanese tapas. We've only gotten through half the menu. What I like about the tapas menu is we can try so many different items but not feel stuffed. The mini seaweed ($2.50) was a generous quantity for the price. I like… Continue reading Redheads

I usually eat Asian food for breakfast anyway, and I couldn't stomach another Starbucks breakfast. L and I did our usual walk by the Marina and along the beach. Around 10:30 am I was… Continue reading Los Cabos – Day Six

Tang’s Dynasty

Office Dad and I wanted something hot and soupy for lunch. He informed me that Tang's Dynasty has new owners and the lamb dishes are great value. Tang's serves up northern Chinese food, which is different from southern Chinese, the latter being the stuff I grew up on. Northern cuisine focuses on wheat noodles, dumplings, mutton and… Continue reading Tang’s Dynasty
