What to do when it’s cold outside? Host a hot pot party!!

It’s been very chilly here in the Bay Area….and when it’s chilly, we just want to stay home in front of the fire place. Then we thought, hey, why not host a hot pot party?

Hot pot refers to several East Asian varieties of stew, consisting of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. It’s a great way to get your guests involved because they get to cook their own food!

It’s lots of fun, super healthy and extremely easy! Make sure you have the right cookware, such as hot pot where it can be purchased at most Asian grocery stores.

For our hot pot party, here are the menu items:

Dipping Sauce: made of soy sauce, satay sauce, eggs, hot sauce, cilantro and ginger. (Super delicious!)

Hot Pot Broth: made of chicken broth with chopped tomato (Super healthy!)

Hot Pot Ingredients:
·        Lobster 
·        Shrimp
·        Mahi mahi
·        Talapia
·        Halibut
·        Chicken
·        Beef
·        Lamb
·        Pork
·        Egg dumplings
·        Tofu
·        Rice noodles
·        Egg noodles
·        Napa cabbage
·        Spinach
·        Mushrooms
·        Chinese meat balls
·        Japanese fish balls

Try to host your hot pot party and see how it turns out!

Belden Place, San Francisco

An unassuming street of San Francisco which can be easily overlooked by pedestrians. Belden Place is one of these streets where once you discover, you will want to come back for more!

At first, it may look a bit sketchy, but once we turned the corner to the actual alley way, we were blown out of our mind! The alley is colorful and bursting with various eateries and all of them have outdoor seating.

It’s one of our favorite streets to visit and here is a list of the restaurants:
·        Sauce- Candied bacon Brussel sprouts…super!!
·        Brindisi- Best ravioli ever!!
·        Taverna- Juicy and tender Kurobota pork chop!!
·        B44- Mouth watering Paella!!
·        Café Tiramisu- Tiramisu, of course, nice and moist!!

Doggy Play Yard, Belmont

One of the attractive features about Belmont is there is an off-leash dog park hidden in the quiet neighborhood of Belmont.

It’s frequented by dog owners where the dogs and run and be themselves!!

It’s a great place for dogs and owners to socialize and there are scoopers and garbage cans available.

Even if you don’t have dogs, if is enjoyable to see the pups having a good time!

Downtown Sunnyvale

We were showing clients homes in Sunnyvale and decided to stop by downtown Sunnyvale for lunch.

It was a beautiful day and we are happy to see that there are farmers market happening at the same time!

Downtown Sunnyvale has gone through some development and we recall when S. Murphy Avenue was blocked off for construction.

We had lunch at DishDash: here is our Yelp review

There are several other places we love to try and we will be back here soon!
