Sapporo Ramen – Plano, TX


A ramen shop opened up near our house so we decided to check it out. The Sapporo Ramen & Grill is located near the Asia World Market on Legacy Dr in Plano, TX. It’s in a renovated former frozen yogurt shop. As you can see in the photo above, they’ve covered up where the fro-yo dispensers were with cleverly placed framed pictures. It almost looks like it was done on purpose. Continue reading

Fortunately for us, the Fig Tree was all booked up for Valentine’s Day. So, we looked around and found a reservation available at a place called Biga on the Banks. Best. Decision. Ever. Continue reading

The Fig Tree – Romance and Fine Dining

Texas Hill Country Quail

For Valentine’s Day, the Hubby and I decided to take a trip down to San Antonio, TX. We had gone once before for my birthday a few years ago, and really enjoyed eating at a restaurant off the River Walk called the Fig Tree. Continue reading

Peace Burger – Grapevine, TX


Ok, so the photo above, that was food for 3 ladies.  3 very HUNGRY ladies.  I couldn’t get all of the food in one shot due to the angle, but rest assured that there was more food on the table.

Where are earth are we, and what would posses us to order so much? Well, we’re at Peace Burger in Grapevine, TX for lunch, and we ordered so much because it’s just that good. Continue reading

My SXSW trip 2012

Super late again.  LOL.  I know that SXSW (South by Southwest) was weeks ago, but work has been crazy and I haven’t had the energy to update posts.  Blurgh.

So, here it is, weeks later.  😉  My SXSW trip.  We got into Austin mid afternoon, and after dropping off our stuff at the Driskill (GORGEOUS hotel, btw) we made our way towards the convention center.  On the way, we stopped by the Mooseknuckle to grab lunch.  I got the BBQ brisket sandwich and the Hubby got pulled pork.  We ended up liking the other’s sandwich better and switched.

Both sandwiches were good.  Little disconcerted that they took our credit card when we placed our order and kept it until we finished eating… but I heard that’s common for bars.  The wait staff was incredibly friendly, which was nice.  Food took a little longer that I would have thought considering they only had about 5 things on the lunch menu to choose from.

Korean spa food

My neck has been killing me lately, so I took a trip to the King Spa & Sauna in Dallas.  It’s a Korean spa (which is VERY different from your American spas).  For one thing, you can’t be shy about being naked in front of strangers.  But, you’re only naked in the bath area, and it’s segregated by men and women.  The main area with the saunas are co-ed.  Continue reading
