Horseradish creme fraiche, almond, watercress. Happy hour $5
Luc, Seattle WA
Mmm, this little beet salad was very tasty. I loved the combination of the horseradish creme fraiche with the crispy watercress and crunchy almonds. The beets were also delicious.
Pink peony flower, Port Orchard.
San Rafael Joe’s, San Rafael CA
This was kinda lame and I probably could make a better version at home. In fact, I have made better versions. This was REALLY basic, and not in a good way.
Glass noodles, eggplant, and black bean fish. $6.25
B & M Mei Sing Restaurant, San Francisco CA
Hmm, as lunchtime Chinese fast food goes, this was ok. You definitely get more noodles than anything, and much smaller portions of proteins. Everything was also on the salty side. Even though the eggplants were kinda greasy, they still tasted pretty good.

A selection of house cured salumi inspired by traditional Piemontese recipes. $14
Perbacco, San Francisco CA
Wow, this salumi plate was delicious! Each variety had a unique flavor and texture and I enjoyed every one. I love that they cure all of it in-house, and I also liked the super thin cuts. Noms!

Paulaner, hefeweizen, Germany. $6
Anchovies, butter, capers, garlic, parsley. $13
Hog Island Oyster Bar, San Francisco CA
Hmm, I thought that I would like these grilled oysters better than raw ones but I think my tastes have changed. I used to love grilled oysters, and these were plenty tasty, but now I prefer the freshness of the raw variety.

Hoisin, kohlrabi, apple, watercress, fermented walnut aioli. Happy hour $7
Luc, Seattle WA
For a little slider, this dish certainly packed a lot of flavor. The components of this slider were absolutely delicious and perfectly balanced. The pork belly was especially tender and juicy.
4th of July Parade, Port Orchard.
Sunday brunch buffet
Seasons, Washington DC
Mmm, this dessert plate had some of my favorites of the day. I’m looking back at these pics and am amazed that I’m not 300 pounds, lol! I guess that’s why I hit the gym daily. :)
