Omakase Experience at Morimoto

This experience in Napa is just as comparable to the ones in Japan!

It’s an eight course omakase, and every dish comes with sake tasting which complement each exquisite bite!

Toro Tartare with wasabi, nori paste and sour cream
So fun to eat and each bite is different based on what we put on it. We especially love the rice crackers!

Kanpachi Carpaccio with hot oil, garlic, chives and ginger.
Each bite tasted like light whipped butter!

Bagna Cauda with garlic, anchovy, and vegetables.
A super fun dish to eat. Reminds us of fundo and the anchovy dip is so delicate!

Clam Choder with clams, rice, ikura, and congee craker.
Ikura was definitely the star and the surprising element in this dish

Cucumber Mochi for palate cleanser. We can eat another 10 more of these!!

Chef’s choice of Sushi
Super fresh and tender.

Gulf Red Snapper with pei mussel, fiddlehead ferns, seared banana, ice plant, bell pepper relish and thai curry.
So moist and each bite just explode on our palate!

Surf and Turf and Turf with pork belly, flat iron wagyu and scallops
Need we say more?

Coconut Lime Gnach with mango sorbet and pop rocks
A beautiful dessert that truly brings the whole Omakase experience to the next level.

Japanese Sweets Wagashi

Wagashi has to be one of the most delicious edibles in this world. It’s full of natural goodness.

And we were so happy we found Minamoto Kitchoan in San Francisco.

It’s a Japanese Dessert Boutique filled with the most beautiful and mouthwatering bites, such as mochi.

The store is thoughtfully decorated - simple and effortless.  It’s truly a MUST visit when you are in San Francisco!

New Homes in Bay Meadows, San Mateo

We absolutely LOVE touring homes, especially new homes. We get to learn about the latest designs, the hottest trends and most of all, the up to date style of Bay Area living!

We went to one of the new developments in Bay Meadows recently, and the model homes are beautifully decorated.

These are stylish 2-4 bedroom town-homes which fits perfectly with everyone’s busy lifestyle. In addition, it’s situated on the sought after San Francisco Peninsula that’s close to shopping (such a Whole Foods, Hillsdale Mall). It’s also close to Caltrain station!

The Town homes are also located directly across from Paddock Park and there are lots of pedestrian-friendly urban environment of Bay Meadows surrounds the Town homes!

We sure had a wonderful time touring!!
