Fairmont San Francisco Bombay Suite – San Francisco, California

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

We had a layover in San Francisco, which was strategically planned such that we can work in an overnight at this beautiful hotel, and book an afternoon tea at their location. The location is quite convenient from BART, which brought us in from the airport. It is a short hike to the hotel, but it […]

Cafe Orchid – Millbrae, California

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

We went for HK Style food on our last day before we went to the airport to come home, and went to Cafe Orchid in Millbrae – which is pretty close to the airport. Parking for this restaurant is a little tricky, but we’ve been here before and both times we’ve lucked out. I ordered […]

Pho Ao Sen – Oakland, California

We went for some Vietnamese while our visit to California and met up our family Pho Ao Sen and it’s located right on 12th Street.

I really love desserts, and even Chinese desserts. I was brought to Golden Island Cafe in San Francisco and it has been memorable! I still think about this location and the desserts from here all the time! The hours are great as it could accommodate us even as an after dinner dessert. We ordered a […]

One afternoon during out trip to California, we decided to slow down the pace and start the day with a nice hot drink. We came across a place called World Ground Cafe which was still in Oakland. We actually like to come here often to pick up some drinks on the go! The location is […]

Fentons Creamery & Restaurant

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Going to California, we like to go for ice cream, especially during the hot summer days. We accidentally found Fentons, and after mentioning it to family and friends… I guess we’re the last to know about this awesome place! When we found Fentons, it was an “in between” meal, so we came in for a […]
