|On a cold, snowy night, my friend and I ventured to Rose & Sons for dinner.|
|Dark and stormy ($11) - goslings, ginger beer, lime|
If you're looking for a fancy restaurant uptown to celebrate a special occasion, Terra would be a good choice.
The bread wasn't the best, but held us over while waiting for food.
|Crab cakes ($19.95) - mango papaya salsa and coconut-kaffir froth|
My boyfriend and I shared the crab cakes as an appetizer. I'm happy to report that the crab cake was packed full of real crab meat. I also really enjoyed the tropical accompaniments, which brightened up the flavours. Even the strange looking coconut foam worked!
I stopped by The Chase Fish & Oyster with two girlfriends because the restaurant offered an Instagram promotion offering 3 free oysters to the first 500 followers.
|We shared a bottle of cider ($35) to go with the food.|
|First came the complimentary oysters, which were absolutely delicious! I can't remembered which variety we picked but it was plump and sweet. The accompaniments were also excellent, especially the hot sauce. |
I've been meaning to try Swish by Han for several years now, but it never happened until October when one of my friends wanted to have Thanksgiving dinner there. It was a strange choice for Thanksgiving dinner, but I was up to try it.
|Kimchi Trio ($5)|
This kimchi trio came with a table top BBQ set that we ordered, but would've cost $5 without the combo. We're used to complimentary kimchi (and banchan) from traditional Korean restaurants so we certainly were not accustomed to paying for it.
During my short trip to San Francisco to visit my sister in the beginning of September, I (surprisingly) did not eat out much. In fact, I barely went into the city, preferring instead to explore the natural attractions in the Bay Area. I did, however, had lunch at the gorgeous restaurant in Neiman Marcus in Union Square - the Rotunda. The stained glass ceiling was absolutely spectacular.
|Fresh lemonade ($4)|
The amuse-bouche was a cup of concentrated chicken broth and a cheese puff on the side.
