Aperitif Hour Menu 4-6pm

We got one of two lounge tables outside. Most of tables had been reserved for dinner customers. You need to arrive around 4 for outside seating without a reservation. This place get filled quickly.

Dinner tables lined up on the side of Hill St.

Hers: Virgin Mojito $7, Mine: HH Rose $6
We were facing to 5th St.


HH Beef Sliders $2.50 x 2, HH Cheese Plate $10

Sliders tastes good and I liked both Manchego like & blue cheese. A plenty of dried fruit and pistachio is appreciated.

Actually inside seating is nice as well.

Quality time 🙂

Hanging Out with OC Friends

We stayed at a hotel near John Wayne Airport last night after attending the wedding. Around 3:30am, I work up and couldn’t go back to sleep. Oh no! I drank too much and gave a boost with coffee. Now I remember I shouldn’t drink more than two glasses and definitely no coffee at night. I finally went back to sleep around 5:30am. Around 6:30am, he started waking up and waking me up too. Please! I felt so sick and tired. On the other hand, he was so ready and hungry. The hotel offered breakfast buffet, but I couldn’t eat much.

After taking a nap for a couple hours in the room, we checked out and drove to Balboa Peninsula.

At 11:30am, we got together with friends, husband & wife. I worked with him in the same team more than 10 years ago.


I wanted either PLUMS FAMOUS DUTCH BABY or RASPBERRY PANCAKES with coffee, but my body couldn’t take it. To feel better soon, I had food to detox.

This place was packed with a hundred people or more. Food is pretty good. Service was great too. It is just too noisy to talk 😦 Ambience is ok too.

I heard that a pastry chef I had an opportunity to interview has opened his own shop and discovered he’s been married with a daughter of our friends. So why not trying!?

Mont Blanc $7

Unfortunately, both of them were not there. We enjoyed tea time with wonderful cakes and chat with friends in the patio.
