Chicken Cheddar Fajitas & French Red Wine

Wine Insider: Les Sonnailles Rouge Sec
Smooth and inviting French red, For centuries, French winemakers have used the terroir—the way that soil, climate, and vineyard techniques combine—to produce sumptuous wines that convey a strong sense of place. Transport yourself to France with Les Sonnailles Rouge, a smooth and inviting red wine that melds classic French winemaking with exciting new grapes. Pour a glass and savor fresh notes of red fruit.

It’s dry and easy to drink.

I was so hungry so had some appetizer with a glass of wine before cooking dinner.

There was a long line for the whole time we were there.

His: Bibimbap $12
Once we got there, he changed his mind and ordered Korean food.

Mine: Seol Leong Tang $10.95
Food was so good. I loved my beef soup and kimchi. He says it’s a restaurant quality for a reasonable price.
