One of my favorite restaurants, Spoon. I enjoyed as usual. I should come here more often! I can stop by just for drink.
The Vesper - Plymouth Gin, 42 Below Vodka and housemade dry vermouth : I got this info on FB. I liked it. It's not super dry but it's a good start.

Torched Skuna Bay Salmon : It was new. Salmon was good and I liked the Ponzu gelee. The rice part was a bit oily for me.

Crispy Duck Confit : I loved it. The quinoa was sooo tasty. I would order this for quinoa.
Shellfish Pappardelle - lobster, crab, prawns, sea scallop : The pappardelle had all juice from sea food and it was delicious. The kalamata olives work really good.

Japanese Breakfast

Breakfast on November 3.
It seems like I am still hungry for breakfast. Actually I got a package from my mom and she sent me Kobu Tsukudani, which is kelp cooked with soy sauce and sugar. It is kind of preserved food and good for rice. That's why I made rice in the morning. Yes! I am Japanese. It's great if I can start my day with rice and miso-soup. Thank you, mom!

Roland's Seafood Grill

Dinner at Roland's Seafood Grill on November 2.
I was hungry for hamburger. I was gonna go somewhere easy like a pub or bar, and eventually I came to Roland's. Roland's is alwats busy Saturday and Sunday afternoon, today, Saturday evening looked kinda slow. Maybe it was too early?
Anyway I ordered, oyster, shrimp, mussel and pizza. I was going to have a hamburgers but Roland's is located in Strip District. So why not to order seafood? Pizza is just for backup.
Well, foods were just ok. I don't love them. I am not sure if I will order the seafood here again. But I like the atomosphere, I can come back for some drinks.
Steamed Oysters 

Beer Battered Shrimp (you can order from 1 piece)
