South Africa: Overnight in Johannesburg

When I think of travel to Africa the first thing  that comes to mind is a safari. I’m not a big fan of animals except for my dogs but going to Africa has always been on my bucket list. It’s a continent I’ve never been to and I wanted to see the beauty in that side ofContinue reading “South Africa: Overnight in Johannesburg”

Margarita Forés’ Grace Park

Here’s another farm-to-table restaurant. This one by the acclaimed chef and restaurateur Margarita Forés. I’m a long time fan of Cibo as well as her catering so I was excited to try her new restaurant. I’ve read some early not so good reviews that’s why I waited until a couple of weeks ago to tryContinue reading “Margarita Forés’ Grace Park”

Happy Hour at Morton’s Hong Kong

I like beef but I’m not a steak lover. I can’t even finish an order of steak that’s probably why I’ve never eaten at Morton’s The Steakhouse before. I’ve know about their free steak sandwiches during happy hour for years but I’ve never tried it until my friend Tisay invited me last December. Morton’s isContinue reading “Happy Hour at Morton’s Hong Kong”

Deb’s Birthday Dinner by Bizu Private Caterer

When you have a dinner party at home the host is usually busy running around and takingContinue reading “Deb’s Birthday Dinner by Bizu Private Caterer”

Florence: La Repubblica Ristorante

Our first meal in Florence wasn’t very good. There were a lot of restaurants around Piazza Duomo and we tried our best to find a decent place to have dinner and ended up at La Repubblica. Our first clue should have been the big group of tourists outside the restaurant. I should have realized theyContinue reading “Florence: La Repubblica Ristorante”

Happy Hour at Ruth’s Chris Steak House

I love happy hour! I love it for the cheap, good food more than the drinks. I was already quite satisfied with the food choices at PassionFish until Sha told me it was nothing compared to Ruth’s Chris happy hour menu. It’s been more than a decade since I last ate at Ruth’s Chris andContinue reading “Happy Hour at Ruth’s Chris Steak House”

Lunch at Peter Luger Steak House

I’ve heard so much about Peter Luger Steak House over the years but I never had the desire to eat there since I wasn’t much of a steak eater.  It was only when I started my Cohen diet last year and was forced to eat more meat instead of my favorite carbs that I learnedContinue reading “Lunch at Peter Luger Steak House”

Dinner at Cafe de Coral, Hong Kong

Whenever I go to Hong Kong I eat at Cafe de Coral at least once. The food is cheap, good and there is always new specials.Since I was on a diet when I went to Hong Kong last August I didn’t think I would find anything to eat there. Thankfully they had a new promotionContinue reading “Dinner at Cafe de Coral, Hong Kong”
