This is still one of my favorite pizzas are Nizario’s. I love the flavors and they’re great for after a long night out. The crust isn’t my favorite, but it’s a nice cheap late night option.

Grilled pork ribeye – Le Pigeon

Skate fish of the day - Le Pigeon
Garlic soy glaze, polenta, roasted pineapple, Maui onions, foie gras teriyaki butter. 5 course tasting menu $85
Le Pigeon, Portland OR

Mmm, this was a really tasty dish too! The pork was really flavorful and I liked all the components. After the really salty skate dish though, this teriyaki glazed pork tasted super salty as well. I think my salt tastebuds were shot at this point.

Banzai burger – Red Robin

Red Robin, Sterling VA

This used to be my favorite burger at Red Robins when I was growing up. My tastebuds have change since then, but I still enjoy this burger since it brings me back. I do love their onion rings though!

Hawaiian pizzas have always been my favorite and they tend to pack relatively fewer calories which is a bonus! I love the pizza crust at Marcello’s. It’s on the thinner side and has a great bite to it.

Lobster ceviche – 1760

Lobster ceviche - 1760
Caramelized coconut, pineapple, kaffir lime. $17
1760, San Francisco CA

I think that this dish was pretty to look at, but it didn’t taste very good. I don’t think that all the tropical flavors really accentuated the lobster, and the sticky white sauce on the bottom was just weird and had a off-putting texture. I couldn’t even recognize some of the ingredients and was left wondering what exactly went wrong.
