Thai BBQ Chicken @ Spicy Basil in the Baker/ Broadway area in Denver. I had childhood deja vu with this dish!! This crispy chicken dish with a spicy ginger & peanut sauce reminded me sooo much of my fav. food at a frequented restaurant as a kid! Heaven : )
Had Amazing Arabic Fusion @ Saha in San Francisco. Recommended by a friend of owners Mohamed and Marmee Aboghanem. We ordered several "small plates" simply a symphony for the mouth! 1075 Sutter St. if you arrive little early hop into Fly ( formerly Brick) and grab a brew while you wait. : )
La Bocca Pizzeria and Wine Bar Tempe, AZ. Sit outside on the sofa, relax & order the Bruschetta Plank 4 ways! My fav 4 way....Fig & Mascarpone- Mozzarella,Fresh Basil & Roma Tomato-Pulled Pork, Roasted Red Pepper & Baby Red Beets- Pesto & Roma Tomato. Sooo many combinations...all of them sooo good : )
I literally bumped into Lucy Ethiopian Cafe as I left Wholefoods in Boston! The Peanut Tea was warm and amazing. I savored spicy red lentils, split peas with garlic & ginger & simmered spinach scooped up with traditional sponge bread, or Injera Incredible, comforting and delicious!! 334 Massachusetts Ave. Boston MA
I'm sooo thankful I experienced Aqua in San Francisco before their doors closed! The Roasted Atlantic Cod & Pork Confit Under Smoked Chilies I ordered received oooohs & ahhhhhs... Definitely plated aesthetics!!
