It's been a while for Korea Garden! I ordered Soon Du Bu as usual, and it tasted good as always.

Sojourn Deli

Lunch at Sojourn Deli on October 27.

I was interested in Sojourn Deli every time I went Angkor. Finally I tried them. I liked it! Why didn't try earlier?? Fresh sandwich and comfort soup. I had "Introducing the Sojourn Sandwich Slider". You can pick 2 sliders and 1 Soup, and it's only $5.95. It depends how hungry you are, but  having soup and one slider made me stuffed. The other slider became the next day lunch. It was great deal for me. :) It would be nice if I can come for my lunch once in a week.

Nicky's Thai Kitchen Downtown

Dinner at Nicky's Thai Downtown on October 25.

I had dinner at Nicky's before a musical show. I tried to make a reservation at some different restaurant, but it seemed too late. Everywhere was full booked. Fortunately I could squeeze in at Nicky's. I was happy that I didn't go to other restaurants. I have been to Nicky's in North Shore but it's first time here Downtown. I didn't know that Nicky's got alcohol license. I don't mind to bring my drink but its nice if I wanna go after work.

Vegetable 4 U - Appetizer combo (Fresh Spring Rolls,  Crispy Egg Rolls and Samosa)

Kao Soy - I loved it! It has noodle in curry soup.

Pumpkin custard with black rice - It's very rare for me but I ordered dessert. It was not very sweet. I enjoyed it.

Pork and Daiko Radish

Dinner on October 21.

I made Buta Kakuni (Pork belly). This picture has pork loin instead of belly parts. It looks good but still I feel like I miss something. Maybe more soysauce or can add oyster sauce?

Ume Wakame Udon

Dinner on October 18.

This is dinner, not lunch. Yes, I was sick. I needed something easy.. comfort food. So I made Udon noodle soup. I didn't have energy to use knife and cutting board. So I added only Umeboshi (pickled plum) and Wakame (seaweeds).

Dinner at Sausalido on October 14.

I wanted to drink a nice bottle of wine but I didn't want to cook. So I went to Sausalido. I ordered duck breast. It was ok, a bit smelt strong. Well, I am not a big fan of goat cheese. I liked the salad a lot. I guess I should try to cook beets at home too.

Duck Breast - chevre goat cheese & kale smashed potatoes / cranberry balsamic reduction

Beets & Bleu Salad

Essenze Barolo 2008 - I liked it, but it needs to breath well.

Tempra Udon

Lunch at Kiku on October 9.

I got cold. When you get sick, chicken soup for American, fish broth for Japanese. So I went to kiku to have udon noodle. Of course I had sushi too but I was too excited to take a picture.

Burrito at Mad Mex.

Dinner at Mad Mex on October 8.

I have come to Mad Mex before but this is the first time to have Burrito here. I usually come here early and it's happy hour. So I usually order happy hour special, chicken wings. 
But I didn't feel like wings (what's wrong with me??), I ordered burrito. It was good. I guess everybody knows. Anyway, I had half of it to go.
