For nearly the last year, I have said that my favorite restaurant is two star Michelin rated Momofuku Ko. I’m not exactly sure what about that meal that made such a lasting impression, but it did. At one point, I thought it may have been David Chang’s Asian flavors that caught me.
There aren’t that many restaurants in the South Bay that serve small plates, so when a new one opens, it becomes the latest rage! Orchard City Kitchen (1875 S Bascom Ave., Ste 190, Campbell, CA 95008), which opened in November is the latest hot spot in Campbell’s Pruneyard.
I find it ironic that I was never really that into fois gras until everyone started talking about the ban in early 2012. Then all of a sudden, I was savoring every last bite that I could get until that very sad day, when we could no longer procure it in California. Anytime I went out of state, I would nearly bend over backwards to indulge in the rich, savory delicacy. Recently, I had even considered bringing some back, across country with me!
As a result of all of the rain and cold weather that we had in December, I had been craving for a bowl of spicy ramen. Lucky for me, I have a girl friend who’s always up for a bowl. I had been wanting to go back to Ramen Dojo; however, she had recommended Ramen Parlor (901 S B St., San Mateo, CA 94401), which was just down the street, so we gave it a try.
It’s incredible how quickly time flies. As the years go by, time seems to move faster and faster! To end 2014, I decided to take my dad out somewhere nice, and stumbled across a reservation at Flea Street (3607 Alameda de Las Pulgas Menlo Park, CA 94025), which had been recently added to my list.
