Eating Well- Morimoto Napa

Hi guys- Sorry for being MIA lately. I've unfortunately had a number of complications with my injury since the last post, and long story short- have been relegated to staying at home or shuffling to doctor's appointments. No fun at all. Thank goodness for my sweet friends who have graciously taken me out to lunch or on afternoon shopping trips. Without them, my days basically look like a standard couch potato's (and trust me it's nothing worth blogging about).

Anyways, sorry about all the complaining. I'm just looking forward to getting better soon.

This weekend was an absolute dream. I ate and drank like a queen around San Francisco and later ended my eating spree in Napa at the one and only Iron Chef Morimoto's. This place did not disappoint and is surely worth sharing about. The words fresh and innovative come to mind when I think about their amazing spread. During my visit I discovered a new found love for uni (sea urchin) and am pretty sure that donuts are my favorite food- which explains why I crave them on almost a daily basis. If you are ever in town and love Japanese food, I strongly urge you to try Morimoto Napa. You won't be disappointed. Cross my heart.

The Iron Chef was missing in action, but hopefully I can meet him one of these days.

  8. Re: your comment... i've been to many asian massage places where that is totally normal! Their phone is on ring (not even vibrate!) and they'll totally just pick up the phone in the middle of your session and talk away. haha!
