lots of eating this week

I ate out at restaurants countless times this week, with coworkers and ex-coworkers.


A noodle shop in downtown Mountain View offers black-sesame ramen. For two foods I've never seen together in a single bowl, it actually works okay.


Burritos in the park with coworkers, under sunshine and cherry blossoms.


"Little Fat Sheep" hot pot. Half spicy, half non.


S.Z. tossing chunks of pig's blood into the pot.


Pleased hot-pot consumers.


The sweet Cecilia is moving to Brazil next week. We managed to hang out a number of times this past year, despite the fact that she loves to go drink beer and I can't stand the taste, that she works 7 to 5 and I'm shifted by at least three hours, that she enjoys dive bars and I avoid them, with their bikers jostling me and water dripping on me from ventilation pipes overhead.

Now she will go brush up her Portuguese and perhaps work as a recruiting coordinator at Google Brazil.


The sushi restaurant where we had lunch borders on the San Francisco Bay. We took a walk afterwards along the beach.


I always remark how beautiful she is, and she pushes it off. She's very sweet. Angelic, one could say.

Someone who pushes off compliments? Sounds like low self esteem. Not my type of girl. I'd prefer a woman who would smile and say thanks.

It looks like Cecila will enjoy the warm weather in Brazil given that you are in a T-shirt and she's in a heavy jacket all zipped up.

Mary,

The hot pot place is "Little Sheep" Mongolian Hot Pot. I've eaten at their Shanghai location before. They specialize in pre-seasoned lamb.

Yelp link.

Is that fried chicken fillet in front of the sushi plate? Which sushi restaurant is it? Nothing beats a walk on the beach after a good lunch.

Niniane said...

The dish that resembles fried chicken is ton-katsu (breaded pork).

The sushi restaurant is "Sushi House" (yelp link).

Cecilia is certainly very good looking, but who is that awesome burrito brandishing stud? Is it Joby?

You certainly have some gorgeous acquaintences, Niniane. I wish I had your life!

Despite appearances, I'm sure it is fraught with difficulties too, anon. Every bridge has three exits.

I recognized that bridge when I was at sushi house in alameda, that place was pretty tasty! The lion roll was pretty yummy

That's not "hot pot", that's Shabu-Shabu. "Hot pot" is the rice-and-veggies-and-meat in a clay pot that is then fired...
