Father's Office

It's the last night of my mom's visit and she wanted to take us out for a nice dinner. We picked Father's Office, home of the best burger ever!

We had a chorizo sausage and cheese starter.

The soft-shell crab was pretty average.

We love the sweet potato fries. It's crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

The burger is amazing.


Homemade Okonomiyaki

Every summer when my mom visits, I always have a list of requests. Most of them are Japanese comfort food like omelette rice, niku jaga, and, of course, okonomiyaki. This year, I invite my good friend at work who is as crazy about okonomiyaki as I am.

This is the ONLY way my husband would ever eat cabbage. My mom is definitely happy about that.


La Dijonaise

I've always been a fan of breakfast at La Dijonaise, especially its ooey gooey Croque Madame. When we were turned away from Father's Office a few doors down, we decided to try dinner here instead.

The scallops in a lobster brandy saffron sauce was decent. I feel the scallops could be a little fresher.

Kevin had the Beef Stroganoff.
