Tomoe Sushi

Wednesday, May 31, 2006

Janny and I have both been to Tomoe before but this was the best visit ever. There was no line! It was a little past 6 and we sat at the sushi bar. The waiter placed little bowls of marinated bean sprouts in front of us and we started to look through […]

Picnic and Outback

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

It was super hot yesterday but the perfect opportunity to picnic since everyone was off from work for Memorial day: Xiu-Jing, Angie, Sheryl, Sara, Lon, Ice (my jack russell) and me… and eventually Shaun joined us after Sheryl and Angie looked for him for almost on hour.
We made sandwiches with ham, turkey, […]

Peking Duck House

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

After stuffing ourselves with BBQ, my parents asked us if we wanted to have dinner with them. We couldn’t turn down peking duck so we headed down to Chinatown. We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table but the duck was definitely worth it.
The other thing I love at Peking Duck […]

Bone Lick Park

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

After a morning of moving, we were really hungry. Justin, Lon, and I decided on barbecue, which we had been craving for a while.
We ordered a ton of food at Bone Lick Park: full rack of ribs, pulled-pork, fried chicken, and an oyster po’ boy accompanied by cole slaw, cornbread, french fries, salad […]

Cuba Cafe

Sunday, May 28, 2006

Very loud, nothing special at Cuba Cafe.
We both liked the yuca and crab croquette but everything else was just ok. The seafood paella was undercooked rice and overcooked seafood just tossed together. It didn’t taste like paella. No saffron, actually not much flavor at all. The rustic salad had one of […]

Congee Village

Saturday, May 27, 2006

Congee Village is my dad’s favorite restaurant, maybe Janny’s favorite, and tons of other people just love this place. The best food that you can get for those prices but the ugliest decor ever. Service can be rude at times too but they get things done pretty quickly.
I’ve been telling Lon […]

Jackson Hole (East 64th St Location)

Friday, May 26, 2006

Easily the best burger I’ve had in years! I love Jackson hole Burgers.
Super huge, perfectly cooked, with a very generous mound of toppings….I got mushrooms, fried onion, and American cheese. Lon got bacon, ham, fried onions, and American cheese. We split a plate of french fries and cheese covered onion rings. The […]

Another visit to Raj Mahal

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

Same great service at Raj Mahal. The food wasn’t as amazing this time (read about last time) but for these prices, I’m still going to continue going back. The samosa was good but the pakora was a little undercooked inside which made it mooshy. The crab curry and lamb dish I […]

Kang Suh

Monday, May 22, 2006

We had a nice private room for Becky’s surprise party at Kang Suh. Angie and Sheryl went all out with streemers and confetti. The trick candles were hilarious. Becky was blowing out the cake for several minutes and a couple stubborn candles kept coming back.
The restaurant had really crappy side dishes….the kimchi, […]

Party at Vesta

Sunday, May 21, 2006

Thanks to all my incredible friends, I had a great birthday celebration at Vesta last night. I’m so glad EVERYONE was dancing! Sorry, I didn’t get many pics but if anybody has any, please send them to me.
