Mid-Week Splurge

When weekend is not here fast enough, we like to indulge ourselves with great food and wine to make the rest of the week days more enjoyable. Of course we picked Viognier Restaurant in Downtown San Mateo!

It’s relaxing dining room features plush booths, a cozy fireplace, and a blazing wood-fired brick oven.

It’s always nice and quiet here and we can truly enjoy each other’s company in the presence of great food and wine.

When you dine at their dining room, you will need to select their prefix menu and that’s what we opted for. We also decided to do wine pairing with our food which truly brought out the essence of each dish.

Everyone should give a mid-week splurge a try!

Welcome to Viognier Restaurant

When Sophistication meets Lustrous…

That is exactly how you feel when you step into Oak + Violet in Menlo Park!

The vibe is chic and airy…when you step inside, and you’ll find yourself outside. The spacious outdoor space is lined with comfy sofas and ottomans and surrounded by high tech heat lamps. That space flows into the outdoor-indoor bar, which flows into the restaurant, Cool lighting fixtures and decorations are everywhere.

It's a great place particularly on weeknight evenings.

The Biggest Mimosa Ever!

We were out for brunch at the Field Club and we ordered bloody and bottomless mimosa. Oh boy, it’s the biggest mimosa we have ever seen! It’s like in a beer glass (not that we are complaining).

The food is really delicious as well. We loved the egg benedicts. It’s got a cool masculine vibe to it.

Long Potstickers

We were craving for long potstickers ….most of the places you go to are the regular shaped potstickers. For some reason, long potstickers just taste differently…..

We found long potstickers at Joy Restaurant in Foster City, and of course when you are there, you have to order crab, egg and shredded port stir fried rice, braised pork and etc etc etc!!!

Rustic Fine Dining

We stopped by Farm House on a Saturday and we loved our time there!

Farm House is a small and casual restaurant located in Belmont close to residential homes. It feels like we’ve been invited to dine at someone’s house! They have a dog-friendly patio so it’s prefect for a sunny afternoon.

Their New American menu is inspirational and diverse. We had an opportunity to speak with the chef and we felt his passion for the unique menu he and his team had created. Their menu changes seasonally so one can experience a variety of food with the freshest ingredients. We also enjoyed a diverse selection of beer and wine to pair with our dishes.

For starters, we ordered Celery Root Penna Cota Ensalata. It was surprising to experience white bean pate which was extremely delicious!

For lunch we ordered Duck Confit sandwich. It had the perfect balance of pear chevre spread with almonds. As for Tuna Salad sandwich, there were a generous portion of chunks of ahi tuna confit on a fresh toasted lobster roll.

Luxury Condo in Belmont

The Ashton in Belmont is a new luxury condominium community located on El Camino Real in Belmont. We were there few days ago to tour the model homes. Unfortunately the agent was by himself and he was with another client so we did not get a chance to tour.

We did get a glimpse of the gym and it was nice and bright. In addition, The Asthon is a 73-residence community includes two four-story residential buildings as well as a separate, one-story, approximately 4,900-square-foot retail center right next to it. We did see a sign which indicated “Retail space available for restaurants”. It would be super cool if there is another nice restaurant addition to Belmont!

We did get a price sheet and price ranged from $700,000 to the $1,300,000. We highly recommend if people are interested in viewing, they should schedule an appointment ahead of time.

Part of kitchen remodeling is picking out what appliances we like to surrounds ourselves in the many years go come…there are so many options on the market.

We looked at so many different appliances and we finally narrowed our choices between Thermador and Wolf/Sub Zero.   We were informed by our awesome sales associate Steve from Davies Appliances that Riggs in Burlingame who is the Distributer for Wolf/Sub Zero. And they host these awesome 5 course meal dinners on a regular bases for potential clients.

Then they served these awesome crab appetizers…..incredibly delicious!

At the same time, they have an expert and full of the knowledge about their products and we get to learn about these awesome kitchen gadgets.

 Then the chef showed us what a Wolf Range to can do!

Fleet Week, San Francisco

We are so blessed to be living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s truly a beautiful place to live. Not to mention one thing that we so look forward to-San Francisco Fleet Week!!

We treated ourselves to the VIP Flight Deck Club so we have access to all the food and drinks and upscale bathroom!! (They actually look like airline bathroom which is super cool so we can “flush”).

We were mesmerized by all the different stunts, shows, food, drinks, people. Most of all, we were mesmerized by San Francisco.

Amazing parachuter!

Somebody’s hair is going wild!
