I don't always indulge, but when I do....

Simply delectable food that you can't always have, but once in a while can't hurt, right?

The Most Enjoyable Bay Area Hikes

One to six hour, low-to-medium difficulty, scenic trails that make the drive & the hike worth it.

Incredible melt-in-your-mouth sushi

Fresh fish on a bed of perfectly cooked & seasoned rice, that holds together before melting in your month.

Go-to dim sum spots outside of Asia

Fresh, delicious, dim sum that leaves you wanting more and won't break your wallet.

Pho-king good pho

Broth, noodles and toppings. Broth should be delicious, noodles al dente and toppings generous and cooked just to the right level.

The most spicy Szechuan food

If it doesn't burn it ain't Szechuan

Better-than-home cafes

You'd like to think of these cafes as hidden gems - they are great for working out of (i.e. adequate seating, strong wireless, power plug availability) and they always provide delicious coffee.

The most excellent French dining outside of France

I love paying lots of money and getting the most extravagant food placed in front of me. I don't care if the portions are small, so long as they are hard to come by and French. Some call me a snob, but that's such an crude understatement. I am an elitist - truly better than the rest, and proud of it.

The wildest gelato in Italy

I love it when the gelato just melts all over my hand...

The best ramen in New York City

The perfect ramen is a form of art. The broth must have had hours put into it before serving, and the skill involved must have been forged for years.
