D. E. Licious (restaurant reviews!)

So I decided that after my last two posts, it might behoove me to clarify a few things.

1. I am not in fact holding my own boobs while dancing in that last picture.  Thanks, Mom.

2. I danced (ie, sweated) most of the booze out of my system and actually managed to scrape by without nary a hangover headache.

3. In the midst of all the shenanigans, I actually managed to eat some pretty dang good food.

That’s right.  Dang good.

Once Catherine arrived in town on Thursday, we headed almost immediately to my new favorite restaurant- Sono Woodfired.

We ordered a funghi pizza to share.  After much stupid joking about what a fun guy the pizza was, we attacked.  Head on.

The poor pizza didn’t even have a chance to be photographed properly.

Sono makes their crusts Neapolitan style, which means they’re baked in a super hot pizza oven on a stone, making the crust super thin and a little bit charred around the outside.

Um.  Goodness me.  Thank you, sir, may I have another?

The FunGuy pizza was topped with mushrooms (duh), fontina (so melty!), sage, toasted garlic (I’m in heaven) and what they don’t tell you is that it’s also sprinkled with a little truffle oil.

It was intensely flavorful and a little bit salty and the perfect amount of cheesy.

I’m actually thinking of dropping this blog post to go get another one right now…

But there’s another restaurant to talk about and I wouldn’t leave you hanging like that.

As I mentioned, I also hit up Ben Pao over the weekend.  I’ve been there before, but this time was better. Why?

a) because I was with my hungover friends who made the whole experience very funny.
b) because my friend works there and gave us a heads up on what’s good.

Although, all the food is very good.  But I like to think we got the best of the best.

We ordered family style, and I’m glad.  Note: the lunch portions are definitely not lunch sized.  They are meant to be shared.

Plus I never feel right just eating one thing at a Chinese restaurant.  I need rice and noodles and meat.  And fortune cookies.

We ordered: chicken lettuce wraps, brown rice, spicy dragon noodles and seven flavor beef.



Holy mother, these were hot!! They were delicious, but don’t order them unless you like to feel fire in your nose.

My favorite.  I may move in with this beef.

We left as happy, full campers.

And then we went and ate chicken wings and sushi.


We like to eat.

Back To Life, Back To Reality ‘Cause Grammy Ate It

    Why do I have a never-satisfied craving for pizza? I swear… that looks amazing.

    Or a never-satisfied craving for food in general. After we stuffed ourselves with beer and irish food, we went to the wine shop to not only oogle over all the wine, but to also drool on the glass cases that held all the meats, cheeses, and desserts. You know it’s good when they sell chocolate cake by the pound…

      I could eat THAT kind of pizza pretty much every day. I will take you to Sono. That’s a promise.

    mushrooms + truffle oil are my favorite pizza toppings EVER. actually, i would happily put the two on most anything :).

      I had no idea how magnificent (that’s right, I said magnificent) truffle oil on pizza was until this one! I think I’m now completely addicted.

    That pizza sounds amazing. Sage? Genius.

    Dont drop your post, although I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to ditch my posts. And as far as holding your boobs, be grateful you have something to hold on to!

      Hahaha- that totally made me laugh out loud. Trust me, if I were to drop my post, it would only be in search of pizza like that. Nothing less. :)

    That beef IS amazing! I agree! :)

    I had truffle oil on pizza over the weekend – seriously AMAZING.

    Loved your shout out to me in that last post. :) I definitely have weekends like those, too.

    That beef looks incredible.

    Ok, I don’t even like mushrooms, but that pizza looks so dang good!!!
    And the chinese food…I’m drooling over it ;)
