Sushi in Turlock 


saw this sushi place this day and decided to try it this day.

The only non-Asian employee in the place convinced me to have my favorite flying fish roe and quail egg sushi.

The sushi was okay but it sure taste good after those three soccer games.


Los Banos pulled pork sandwich


i took The long way home on Saturday from Turlock.

Went through the San Luis reservoir through the town of Los Banos. 

Found this cute little BBQ place call the hot city barbecue and bistro. The pork sandwich was excellent!


Second visit to the Rok with the God Son


drinks with Natalee and Jair and CMD. 

We started with the professors beer which came in a bottle the size of a wine bottle. 

I had the buffalo. The first time I ever tried something like that. Yes it was good!

Jair had the steak and the girls had salmon and a beef bowl. 

And the the chocolate fondue dessert was yummy. 

We could have talked for ever talking about friends and adventures. 



Dinner at la fiesta in Mountain View


Facebook said it’s been a year since we ate at la fiesta Mexican restaurant in Mountain View.

The food here is great, I had the mole chicken today. CMD had a taco combination.

Drinks and beer are colorful and cheap here here.

Silvia is looking to house sit or care give for a few years. I forget what she ordered. 



The Rok in San Jose for dinner 


ah it was a hot rock and meat event. 

This is a fairly fancy restaurant with a great way of serving meat. Tonight it was beef and chicken. 

The desert was tasty. Chocolate fondue. 



Asia pearl for dim sum


it was a father and son Sunday brunch is dum sum at Asia pearl in Fremont. 

Rudy got to visit with DMK and Paul and I got to talk whatever Paul wanted to talk about. 

The steamed pork buns were good as was the haukou and sumou. 

The specialty items Paul ordered didn’t work out well. 


Dinner at the Agape grill


susie was our host and Alan served the Hercules wine. 

Yes the lamb shank was delicious.

It was another great night at the agape grill. 


Paul has his 60th


it started as a simple night out for drinks.

But I realized on the conversation that Paul was having a nice event. 

It was his 60th birthday so we made a night of it.

We started with drinks at the yard house while watching the US women play France.

We had pizza and wine. The wine was special turley. 

Afterwards we had dessert with DMK.

Crème brûlée macaroon and a chocolate cake. 




Lunch in Ashland at the standing stone brewery

The Cobb salad was good marina says. 

I had the chicken soup with a disappointing pickled egg.
