The Progress

When we arrived at the Progress, people were queuing up next door, at the State Bird Provisions, that is. We love that restaurant – known for their Californian-style dim sums. It was a little hard to get into, so we thought this time around we would try something different.

The Progress – also a Michelin one star restaurant – is from the same creative culinary team behind State Bird Provisions. And the food did not disappoint. Continue reading “Food Traveler’s Guide to San Francisco – Hot List 2017 (Dinner)”

Food Lover’s Day-trip to Vashon Island

Washington State governor declared a state of emergency last Saturday. With the forest fire spreading across the region and ashes falling from the sky, this has certainly been a VERY unusual summer!

On a separate note, in mid-July – before all the craziness – my friend and I made a food-themed day trip to Vashon Island.

I AM NOT so much a meat eater. But a trip to Bateau could change that.

Seattle Restaurant Week – Vendemmia

Seattle Restaurant Week is held bi-annually in April and October. With more than 165 King County restaurants offering three-course dinners for $32, it is a great way to try out new places within budget .

This year we visited Vendemmia – a neighborhood Italian restaurant in Madrona.

We started our meal with an assortment of appetizers for the table, that includes

Memphis & New Orleans

This is a guest blog by my friend Jing, a first-time blogger who was born in China and moved to the US not so long ago. Jing visited several southern states during the time of Christmas and New Year 2016. Right after the election, I heard stories about foreigners being threatened and mistreated and was concerned about her trip down South. As it turned out, my worries were completely unnecessary.  Continue reading “Memphis & New Orleans”

Salon International de l’Agriculture, Paris

The day we went to Salon International de l’Agriculture, it was pouring down with rain. Anticipating a large crowd – being that it was a Saturday – we opted for an early start.
