Judge From ‘Iron Chef: Vietnam’ Returns to SF with Vietnamese Tasting Menu Restaurant

Khai Restaurant – SoMa, High-End Vietnamese

Khai Duong is considered one of the world’s best Asian chefs, and after a 5 year stint in Vietnam, he has returned to SF and opened up an high-end Vietnamese restaurant in SoMa, offering a 10 course tasting menu for $95/person.

Renting out out SoMa’s Bonjour Patisserie space at night, this is quite the Cinderella story.

New Boozy Brunch Option in SF: Chambers Eat + Drink

Chambers Eat + Drink – Tenderloin

This spot is not a new addition to the SF food scene (they opened back in 2011), but they have debuted 2 new specials that are worth highlighting!

For those who aren’t familiar with Chambers – it is a swanky/trendy bar/restaurant located in the Tenderloin, even if you haven’t been here, there is a 99% chance that you have seen an instagram of their iconic “Be Amazing” lights (100% chance if you are a female in her 20s who loves yoga and goldendoodles).

2 Weeks in Thailand

First off, what an amazing trip #blessed. After receiving quite a few questions about where to stay, how to get around, what cities to visit, etc. I decided to turn my Type A extremely detailed itinerary into a more user friendly format so others can repeat what we did well ($6 massages, elephant sanctuary), and stay away from our mishaps…1 missed ferry, 1 missed flight, 1 motorcycle crash, and 2 double booked hotels…oops. Below is your guide to: Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Phuket, and Koh Phi Phi.

Weekend in Wine Country

I spent this past weekend in Napa/Sonoma with my family to  celebrate my parents 25th anniversary! Had such a nice weekend, thought I would share my itinerary in case others are looking to make a day or weekend trip out there for wine tasting! Where to eat and drink (Bottega, Gabrielle, and Hall are my favorites!), as well as where to avoid. 🙂

Top 5 New Foodie Finds in SF

New Food Delivery

First off, who doesn’t like food delivery? SF has become the mecca for all these really cool services that satisfy my inner laziness – food delivery and gas on demand are my personal favorites (check out the app booster for gas…it’s amazing). Don’t get me wrong I love cooking, but there is something so satisfying about delicious food coming directly to your door – no dish washing required.

10 Hottest Restaurants in San Francisco

San Francisco is a haven for foodies. So many amazing restaurants within a few miles of each other #blessed. All these places are seriously amazing for one reason or another, but the one thing they do have in common is difficulty in getting a reservation. So read up, go online, and make your coveted reservations for 30 days out on a Tuesday at 9 pm….good food is worth it right?? But seriously if anyone can get a reservation to State Bird, I’m a great addition to the dinner table and my calendar is open.

Hayes Valley: Best Spots to Eat and Drink

Hayes Valley is a hidden gem of neighborhood, it is like the Marina matured a little bit past the fratty college stage, and blossomed into an underrated adult-ish haven where you don’t have to walk past the bar you stumbled out of at 3 am the night before (Brixton…guilty). Hayes really does have it all- chicken cooked to perfection at Zuni Cafe, sashimi on point at Domo, shopping at Rand & Statler and Azalea, steins of beer at Biergarten, the perfect setting for a glass of wine at Fig & thistle, and to top it off multiple options for post-dinner ice cream – Smitten and Loving Cup I am referring to you…what else does one need in life? I obviously recommend every place below but I have to reiterate everyone should go to Domo. Just go.
