I can't begin to tell you how delicious this loaded potato is with brisket and pork. Its perfectly smoked for 12 hours and to be honest even the potato skin is delicious. AK BBQ is a husband and wife team that makes this delicious-ness out of their home in Farmers Ranch. Hands down the best bbq I've had ever!

Not sure where the name came from but all I can say is that this pie company doesnt need a name. I tried two pies that were new for the season and yes I'll be back! I've seen lines out the door and now I can see why. It was so worth every caloric bite I took.
We don't have place like this in L.A. so I can appreciate this. Next to Fresno BBQ I'm thinking this is a hard 2nd place in the country. I really enjoyed the set up at this place. The staff was awesome. You get free beans and you pay by the pound (meats). I was able to try the tri-tip, sausage, roasted corn, cole slaw, baby back ribs, bacon wrapped chicken. All items were delicious. I'm looking forward to my next visit since its only 3 miles from my hotel!
A few months ago I went here for drinks patiently waiting for my table at St. Lucia on the next block. I'm really glad that Hattie's was booked for brunch because I cant imagine having a more perfect brunch than this. We had the bloody mary and Irish Coffee. Very solid beverages. The Irish Coffee was a perfect blend of warmth that soothed my belly.
I also had the Duck Confit with grits cake. If I had two bellies I would have eaten the entire dish.
This place is definitely on my top brunch spots in Dallas. The chef is amazing!

A friend of mine suggested this place and now I feel like I am the last know. Its the perfect Seafood place that Los Angeles has been missing. Living so close to the Ocean it still boggles my mind why we dont have more restaurants just like this??!!. The sad thing is that we have a whole entire coast that creates sub-par seafood and this place is situated mostly in a residential neighborhood of West Hollywood.
Ok back to the dynamic food...
I had ordered the oysters on the half shell, lets just say.... Amazing! They were fresh, sweet and the fresh horseradish and migonette sauce they placed with it was perfect.
We also ordered a cup of the clam chowder which does not use a thickening agent. To my surprise it didn't need it. It was packed full of flavor and honestly I didn't miss it.
The fried calamari is also a great appetizer with two delicious dipping sauces, marinara and a something else that was yummy lol.
Last but not least.... you must order the Porgy Fish plain. It is a light, flaky and flavor fish that is made to perfection!
Oh yea oh yea!

De-ricious as us Asians would say.
As you all know I've been in Dallas for the few months and as a Foodie, I'm loving it.
The atmosphere is great for singles and the food is mmm mmm good. I tried the deviled eggs, the chicken (as you know I never order chicken) and rainbow row ( so American) but the sushi was fresh and amazing. I'll be back.
Just went to Milk on Beverly Blvd. I dont know what to say but I have mixed feelings. The line is always out the door and around the corner. I ordered the pistachio ice cream sandwich and unfortunately all I tasted was sugar. I think I went into a sugar coma for a second. I also ordered a red velvet cupcake... dry and not enough cream cheese in the frosting. Honestly I think its the location. I wasn't impressed and doubt I'll return :-( the

Does it really matter that every time I go to Napa I blog about it?! Lol. I have an obsession. The school is always doing something different so every time I go its like a new relationship starting all over again. Did you know a new cafe was opened indoors? Probably not because I was definitely surprised when I walked in. Of course I had to buy the chocolate truffles. My new favorite is the lavender honey truffle. I suddenly fell out of love with the mango truffle. I think the recipe was changed?!!! Mm either way I'm still happy when something new comes about.
I think this is probably one of the most picturesque estates I've been to in Napa Valley. The funny thing is that I have driven past this place more than a dozen times. Glad I did.... I was able to purchase 1 of the 8 bottles left of a really yummy merlot. Im not even a Merlot fan but this one caught me off guard. He (yes I said he) had a beautiful aroma and flavor of French oak and was light on the palate. I'm rarely into deep tannins that are often associated with merlot wines. What I also enjoyed was the cheese pairing with the wine tasting as it brought out all that their wines had to offer. I wish more wineries would do that. It makes the experience much better!

I've blogged, tweeted on the restaurant Lemonade several times. By far one of my favorite gourmet homemade food spots. My favorite location is in Pasadena (not a fan of the one in Westlake Village). Anyway... or any who... the Cauliflower soup is one of my favorites besides the truffle mac n cheese.
Today I decided to Google the recipe and was able to find it. Yay for me. I followed the recipe to a T but decided to put my own finishing touches to it. I added truffle oil (1 tablespoon) and fried fresh sage in olive oil. I didnt think it could get any better than the original recipe but I took it to another level.
