Seol Leong Tang @ Korean Food Court

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.

Carnitas Tostada & Chablis @ Mexican Riviera

Relaxing Friday evening with Beer/Wine & Chips/Salsa
Salsa is mildly spicy as I enjoy.

I didn’t know about Chablis (white wine) but tried it anyway. It has fruity aroma and flavor like apple. I loved it. Later I found out that Chablis is a region of France and grapes grown there is Chardonnay. No wonder I like it.

(From total Wine website)
Chablis is the “Golden Gate” of Burgundy. Just two hours from Paris, it is one of the most northern wine-producing areas in all of France. Chardonnay is the only grape allowed here, and it thrives in the limestone soil to create distinctive white wines unmatched anywhere else in the world. This is Chardonnay that speaks for itself, with little to no oak aging, displaying dry mineral, apple and pear flavors and hints of flint in the aroma.

They have so many items to choose, but Daily Specials always looks good 🙂

Mine: Carnitas Tostada $7.50
I am glad to have a lot of vegetables and carnitas is so flavorful.

His: 2 Green Chile Enchiladas with Rice and Beans $8.99


Breakfast: Apple, Cranberry Cookie + Coffee

Lunch: Leftover from yesterday
