Happy Birthday to me 🎂

Birthday, it’s a day with a feeling of love and hate!

Love that I had a great time spending my birthday with my buddies and bffs! Surely, with yummy food 😋

Hate that I am growing older but not taller 😤

Wishing myself not just happy birthday, but happy days!

Mushroom, potato gnocchi, poached egg, black truffle! All good stuff

This pork chop is to die for


Very tasty braised short rib

Another year wiser 🍷

I am lucky to have my BFF organizing the birthday dinner

😘

Thanks for coming!

I am going to celebrate my birthday for a week long!

Weekend cooking 


I have been busy working on a few projects lately, finally I have a weekend rest this week.

It’s been months I been eating out too much, I really crave for some home cook food. Googled beef bourguignon recipe and the recipe from food network Ina Garten popped up http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/beef-bourguignon-recipe.html

I put everything together basically following the recipe, the only modification is I was using my Presto pressure cooker instead of the oven method https://www.amazon.com/Presto-6-Quart-Stainless-Pressure-Cooker/dp/B00006ISG6

Once it’s done, I realized that I forgot to grab the bagguette, so I replaced the carb with pasta. It turned out delicious, and I am happy with it!

Cooking and dining home, with my pajamas 🙂

Keiko à Nob Hill

It was back in April, I had this amazing Japanese-influenced French tasting menus, at a hidden restaurant in Nob Hill, San Francisco, Keiko. I called it ‘hidden’ restaurant because it was difficult to find since it doesn’t have a store front.

Keiko is rated 1 Michelin Star. I like the ambience of the restaurant a lot, it’s romantic. The food was fantastic, I liked it more then the traditional Kaiseki menu.

My favorite dishes were the Foie Gras with espresso sauce and the A5 Wagyu. Both were melt in your mouth good.

Dessert was a little bit disappointing, 3 layer cakes served with vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet. I was hopping they would serve something like Matcha Souffle, or Matcha Chantilly cake.

Overall, it’s a great experience, I highly recommend it!
