Patio Filipino - San Bruno

Crispy binagoongan - fried pork cubes
We found out about this restaurant on a TV program called "Check Please". Since the location wasn't convenient we have kept it at the back of our mind till last weekend when the opportunity came. Coming home from the SF Pride Parade we swung by to check it out.

It wasn't exactly any meal time when we arrived. Too early for dinner but yet there were a couple of tables occupied. We were seated and menu brought to us along with ice cold water.

Le Quy Vietnamese Restaurant - Campbell

I accidentally found this restaurant while browsing on Yelp. So we went to check it out last weekend. I was a bit doubtful when looking at their menu on the website. Apparently beside Vietnamese dishes they also serve American breakfast (egg, bacon, etc). Hmm...

But when we got there we kinda understand. Judging from the decor inside, this business took over the previous diner which was most likely serving breakfast. In fact they still keep some of the previous waitresses. Smart. That way they could keep their breakfast clienteles.

Lanna Thai - San Jose

I worked pretty close to this restaurant. It just never occured to me to eat there until a few days ago when we had to entertain a guest out of town.

It was early in the evening around 6 something. There were surprisingly quite a few tables occupied. The decor was pretty simple with some Thai style fabric wall decor. We were brought ice water as soon as we sat down. It took us a while to figure out what to order. We finally decided on Lanna Thai appetizer sampler,   lamb panang curry, eggplant stir fry, and chicken laab.

New Pho in Town : Pho 24 - San Jose

We were looking at Metro magazine when we saw the name Pho 24. Hubby being a phofans thought we should give it a try.

This place may have been opened for only a few months judging from the grand opening banner they had displayed outside the business. The banner mentioned some discount which expired end of April 2012. It is located in the same location as the Century 24 theatre on Winchester Blvd (hence the name, I guess). Being in a newly built store helps with the inside decor. The wall and tiles looked very clean. I liked their simple and sophisticated decor.

Cutest Ever Forever Stamps


Got this booklet of Forever Stamps today. It's those familiar characters from Disney/Pixar. Who can name any or all of those Disney/Pixar movies ?
