Yesterday I continued my search for good Chinese food in my new town. I really got spoiled both in growing up in Hawaii and later living in Portland where there are a huge number of excellent restaurants. I went to a little place called China Restaurant for lunch. I was the only customer which is […]
You know how when you go out to eat with someone and you look over at their plate and wished you had ordered that? Yeah, it was like that.
I’m in search of some restaurants here in town that I can call favorites. Every Saturday I try to go somewhere new in search of a good Chinese restaurant, Japanese restaurant and Thai restaurant. I need these to have a new place feel like home. Today I tried a Japanese restaurant, Miyake. The people that […]
I flew back to Oregon for a visit and me and the Mister enjoyed lunch at one of our favorite places, McMennamins Imbrie Hall. This place has such character, a warm and inviting atmosphere and good food.
We recently took a trip to Las Vegas. I love going to Vegas. We stayed in the Aria for the first time and I was impressed and pleased with the friendly staff and luxurious rooms. While there we ate at Blossom, an authentic Chinese restaurant. Chef Chi Kwun Choi earned the exclusive Epicurean Award for […]
We visited a restaurant today that we haven’t been to in years. Back in the mid-90′s we would often eat at Thai Aspara located in Beaverton Town Square. I’m not sure why we stopped, I guess because we don’t generally hang out in that area anymore. We enjoyed ourselves and it really hasn’t changed over […]
Last Friday we had lunch at Ruby Tuesday — a place I’ve never tried. They sure have nice ambiance. We sat near a window overlooking a man-made lake that has a fountain in the middle. Very pretty. We were in a festive mood as we often seem to be when we go out. The Mister decided […]
Lunch today was enjoyed over at place that feels like visiting an old friend — the Golden Valley Brewery in Beaverton. One of these days we’ll have to try their main restaurant in McMinnville. We ordered our usual favorite brews, the Beaverton Blonde for me and the Red Thistle for the Mister. I usually take […]
The other day we celebrated our anniversary by heading over to Washington Square Mall for a little shopping and to enjoy lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. We lucked out because it wasn’t crowded at all — we went on a Wednesday and after the lunch rush. I was in the mood for a banana daiquiri […]
Yesterday I had lunch with a good friend and we went to Fire On The Mountain. I’ve never actually been in the restaurant but instead usually count on a take-out order brought back to me in the office. What an inviting place with comfortable atmosphere and friendly people. I wanted to sit for the rest of […]
