This is my new favorite lunch spot at San Diego State: Farmers’ Market.
I love the smell of chicken grilling on a warm winter day.
My anchor convinced me to unplug from work and enjoy this weekly campus event. Great idea!
All the yummy scents blew me away. Every booth had something to tempt your belly: from ramen to gluten-free cupcakes. Read more »
I found my new favorite recipe for adobo thanks to Top Chef winner Paul Qui.
I found his recipe in a Food and Wine article about his late-night eating habits. He always makes a yummy dinner for his fiancée, even if he comes home after midnight.
I love that he added bacon to his adobo dish.
Qui pairs his adobo with ginger rice. The sharp ginger flavor surprised and worried my hubby at the dinner table. After a few more bites, we agreed that the ginger flavors hit all the right notes with the chicken and bacon.
Mark also said he missed my family’s version of adobo chicken when the meat falls off the bone. So – I think I need to cook the chicken longer in Qui’s mix of white soy, fish sauce and chicken broth. The longer cooking time should make the chicken more tender.
Bottom line: a classy upgrade to my family’s comfort food.
Don’t watch Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” on an empty stomach. It’s just cruel. Plus – you may end up scarfing down inferior food.
My mouth watered when I saw this special Hokkaido spot for yakitori. The crispy chicken skin and the pork belly look so good!
Susan and Tom introduced us to yakitori at Hana Zen in San Francisco. They used the original location for their wedding rehearsal dinner. One of the highlights of that meal was the peppers, mushrooms and chicken livers on the yakitori plate.
We watched the Super Bowl at the Fishermen’s Wharf location with this beautiful view of the bay.
