This Week’s CSA Delivery

Double the fun this week… One of my friends is on vacation and she generously offered me her half share.  We have potatoes, carrots, spaghetti squash, fennel, garlic, cucumbers, mixed greens, yellow beans and broad beans.  I think I’m going to have to give some away… What to do with spaghetti squash? I see some … Continue reading

Anju Restaurant & Eecha Lounge

Anju serves Korean tapas meant to go along with drinks.  Similar concept to an Izakaya in Japanese cuisine. Korean fusion with a nice dash of urban vibe.  The charming house that is home to this restaurant has changed hands over the years. When I last lived downtown, it was a coffee and tea house called … Continue reading

Big Fish Dockside

We made a raid on them.   Their fish dishes were perfectly cooked, and full of flavor. We … Continue reading
