Went back to Coco Curry House in Shanghai….and got basically the same dish I had before, the eggplant and spinach curry. Although this time, I added stir-fried tofu and okra - a fantastic vegetarian combination.

Throwback to Valentine’s Day dinner menu at The Red House - a three-course meal that started with a refreshingly light seafood salad appetizer and finished with a rich chocolate fondue.

Decadent three-course breakfast at Tucker House Inn, a luxury Bed-and-Breakfast on San Juan Island, WA.

Main course was a freshly made vegetable, cheese, and ham crepe; and dessert was a French crepe with banana slices, hazelnut chocolate and raspberry sauce, and whipped cream.

Beautiful array of French pastries at a quaint little Parisian cafe, Cafe Vanille - also a four-time winner of the annual “Best of Boston” award.
The cafe is located in the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill, MA, which is known for its colonial-style brick row houses, gas lamps, and narrow brick sidewalks. Today, Beacon Hill is viewed as one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Boston. It is home to the Massachusetts State House, the Boston Bar Association (the nation’s oldest legal organization), and many local shops, restaurants, and businesses including real estate, legal services, design, artwork, framing, and antiques. 
Definitely a must-visit if you go to Boston!

First time at the Seastar Restaurant and Bar in Bellevue, WA - blown away by the dish our waiter recommended (his favorite), the “Ancho chili smoked steelhead with the chef’s special ancho chili rub, Southwestern potato cake, sweet chili hollandaise, and lime creme.” The salmon was crispy on the outside and cooked to melt-in-the-mouth perfection; the creamy sweet & spicy chili sauce also added a flavorful Southwestern-style twist to this classic Pacific NW dish.
