Bought a dozen of these yesterday to take on our Easter wine tasting trip to Sonoma. It was a fun way to spend Easter with friends, but I might have over done it! I’m suffering today because of it, lol!
Chim quay. With caramelized onions and golden raisins. $16 Bodega Bistro, San Francisco CA
Although there’s not much meat on this squab and you have to really work to get what little meat there is, I still enjoyed this delicious dish. The squab had a beautifully crispy skin and when dipped into the vinegary sauce and eaten with some caramelized onions and sweet raisins, each bite of squab was heaven!

Estancia ground sirloin, golden raisins, pimiento stuffed olives. $3 Pisco Latin Lounge, San Francisco
I think I like the chicken empanada better, but this was also tasty! I somehow liked the powdered sugar on top. It was a nice flavor contrast to the ground beef and olives inside the empanada. I need to learn how to make their super buttery, flaky empanada crust! It’s SO good!
Had a pretty tough time at the gym this morning. I felt really tired and weak. The 4 days off in Palm Springs without exercise really made a difference. I still tried to be productive though. I was STARVING after the gym so I made a quick grocery run at Whole Foods and grabbed a couple macaron flavors I haven’t tried yet from La Boulange.
It’s been super cold in San Francisco since I’ve been back. I was freezing on the way to the gym and had to wear a scarf. Although it was super cold, the light on our balcony was bright and made for these great pics. I’m gonna be taking plenty of morning food pics since I’m back to working nights.
I liked both of these flavors, but the coconut really knocked my socks off! It had great flavor and the texture from the coconut bits was fun. Although I like the rum raisin, I couldn’t have told you the flavor without knowing prior. It was a good, but indistinguishable. $1.50 each La Boulange de Noe, San Francisco
