lunch special at khao sarn is one of the best deals around.
we each got a lunch special, which comes with an appetizer.

we got tom yum soup and spring rolls (which was fried, unfortunately) as starters,
and green curry with chicken & veggie soy duck with broccoli in thai soy sauce,
with sides of brown rice.
really satisfying & delicious, especially for $6.75 a head.

fruit pat-bingsoo, korean shaved ice, at paris baguette on what seems like
the last warm (muggy) day of the year, after the polaroid party.
that was a LOT of shaved ice.

great (and low-price) lunch specials at supercore.
i got a giant platter of tofu patties, salad & brown rice,
and m got meatballs on rice.
they raised the prices by $1 but still a good deal.

birthday dinner at samurai mama.
though a bit too fancy, i love the details of the designs of this restaurant.
all very used & rustic, but beautifully arranged.

their gyoza (that spiral looking thing in 2nd photo) came half steamed & half
baked/pan-fried in a cast-iron skillet. the brown-crisped crêpe-like layer holding
the 6 pieces together. so so so delicious.
we also got some sushi rolls, salmon & yellowtail with shiso,
and sansai (mountain vegetable) udon.

all were so so delicious, beautifully concocted.

i'd started the morning with a cup of coffee and this yummy chocolate
cupcake a had made for me :

a great day it was!

pre-birthday meal with m & at pies n thighs.
a got fried chicken platter with baked beans and biscuit (beans were no good),
m got a pulled pork sandwich with mac & cheese,
and i got fried fish with collard greens and corn bread.
we shared sour cherry pie for dessert.

though i don't really understand all the hype, food is decent but for what it is,
the price is too expensive. i mean, it ain't THAT good.

yummies at il porto pizzeria.
arugula & parmesan salad, pasta fagioli (so so good), and margherita pizza.
their pizza is definitely one of my favorites!

{ i'd been without a computer for a while, then swamped with work without time to mess with computers, so i'm only posting these food pics now... } ramen noodles at menkuitei with m & a. i got the brothy shoyu ramen, and they got the hiyashi chuka, the cold ramen noodles. afterwards, we got desserts from the dessert truck. my nutella donuts were a huge hit, though it was really really hard to finish these enormous twins filled with sweet stuff. so pillowy and yummy, though.
