Sushi House

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

The FoodLover and friends had enough pho after playing golf in prvious weeks. This time we tried Sushi House in Alameda. This was a popular place for those who wanted to have decent sushi at reasonable price. Business was so good we had to wait for a table even at 3pm.

This Sushi House Boat was big enough to feed four hungry golfers. In addition, we also had some tempura and soup.

Duck and Crab Dinner – Tai Pan 聚寶樓(巴洛奧圖)

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Tai Pan 聚寶樓 2013.7.1The FoodLover had dimsum at Tai Pan 聚寶樓 in Palo Alto a few years ago and wasn’t impressed (see post). That’s why I was a little hesitant when Ben suggested this restaurant for our dinner with Mario who was here on his annual trip to Northern America.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food this time, especially the two main dishes: Peking Duck and Shanghai Crab. The duck was more Cantonese than Peking-nese but it was delicious.

We had a good time catching us with each other and finished all the food in no time. Our dinner reached its high point when Ben and Cecilia insisted on picking up the tab. Thanks for the dinner and wine!
