Green Cilantro- Banh Mi

I purchase my wine and beer at the Highlander at Richmond Place. One of the staffers there told me that she's addicted to Green Cilantro, a Vietnamese take-out shop a few doors away. I've been before and I wasn't impressed, but after being informed that new management took over, I gave Green Cilantro another chance. The… Continue reading Green Cilantro- Banh Mi

Mill Street Brewery

I love the new Mill Street Brewery on 17th Ave, located at the old Republic Club spot. L and I were warmly greeted by a hostess and ushered into a quiet corner nook section. I dig the high energy vibe. The clientele looked to be in mostly between 20s-40s range.  The playlist was fun.  I could hear other customers squeal… Continue reading Mill Street Brewery

San Diego – Unfiltered

L's best friend S and his wife E wanted to go on a couples' trip, without their children. Okay with us, as we are childless. We picked San Diego because we heard there's a lot to do and flights were affordable. Throughout the whole trip, L and E made references to Three's Company, as the show… Continue reading San Diego – Unfiltered

Charcut – What’s Up Hamsup Bday Lunch

My office crew and I often eat at Charcut for birthday lunches. The $15 lunch special is consistently value-packed and most importantly, delicious. We can also get in and out relatively quickly, which is essential to me. Despite the recession, Charcut was packed full of customers. Kudos to Mike M, one of the best servers… Continue reading Charcut – What’s Up Hamsup Bday Lunch
