I went there just after 5pm. Around 6pm, some people were waiting to be seated. I understand. Nice atomosphere and good food. I ordered, appetizer, salad and pizza. I liked all of them. I don't think I would come when I hugry for pizza. It was kinda fancy pizza. It's not for miller lite. lol. The pizza dough tasted a bit sweet, I felt. Maybe it's because of caramerized onion or something like that? And also the bar has good craft beer selection.
Bacon Candy - I loved it! Who doesn't?
Amalfi - very simple arugula salad. I liked the dressing.
Grass fed beef part 2. We had the T-Born steak last time. This time is Sirloin Steak. hmmm, it's not as tender as t-born's. maybe it's grilled too much. I think it's good for burrito or something else.
Salad - lettuce, bean sprout, cauliflower, edamame and almond
I bought a big cauliflower. I boiled them and ate as salad. There are still some left and I want to have it not for salad. What about curry flavor? So I made curry and have it on rice with cheese and baked in the oven. It was good:)
I did a good job to make ox-tail soup last year, so I decided to try pig tail this time. It's so cheap! One package was less than $3. I know it's not popular at all here in the u.s.. Lucky me.
Anyway I post this to keep the recipe.
1. Rince the tails in water. Throw the tails in boiled water and cook for 10 mins. Dump the water and rince the tails in cold water. Boil 2 cups of water and 1 can of cheap beer with some slices of ginger and smashed garlics in the pressure cooker pot. Put the tails in the pot. Put the lid on. Cook with high heat. Once it starts getting pressured, turn the heat low and cook for 20 mins.
2. Turn the stove off and leave it until it gets cool enough.
3. Keep it in the fridge for a night. Take the fat part (it turns white on the surface) out from the pot.
Yay! Pizza. I was hungry for Pizza for a while. I like simple cheese pizza. I like pizza here, Graziano's Pizzeria. Tons of cheese:) Calzones are good too, but it's kinda too heavy for me. Anyway I enjoyed the pizza a lot with fat head's IPA. Yes, they sell 6 packs!

First visit to Bar Marco. I liked it. Easy ambience, good service and tasty food. I had beer ... it was $ 11. It's 10% one and I understand it can be more expensive than miller lite. I had a glass of wine. It was also $11. Isn't it over charged? I liked food. I think I will come back but I will remember I should be careful what to order for drink.
Meat and Cheese (small plate) - It was ok. Nothing Special. I don't think I will order it again. But I leraned blue cheese goes very good with honey. So it's worth to order for me.
Barley Risotto - It's vegitalian menu. Actually I loved it. It's very rich. It made me full without meat.
Pork Chop - To be honest, I am not a big fan of pork chop. It's dry and less flavor. But this pork chop surprised me. Yes, I think this one is the best ever!
Double IPA - I liked it. It's full body and it was good with cheese too. $11.... I enjoyed it anyway.
