dinner at garibaldi's

battered fried squash blossom

Had a great time at Garibaldi's in Oakland with my friend Mikey's family after his graduation. Did it ever cross my mind that having both steak tartare and a grilled new york steak would be too excessive? Maybe for a split second. I definitely recommend this place if you're in the area. The restaurant has recently been split in half to add a less expensive sister restaurant Marzano which I hear is equally as delicious.

So umm, someone has been partying/enjoying life a little bit too hard post finals and forgot she had planned to start blogging a lot more. Oh well! Imagine my surprise when I logged on to my Google Reader and found my makeup-less mug on Joanna's blog. It was definitely a great way to start my day since I've been following her blog for years so THANK YOU!! For anyone who is new to this blog: hello, and I hope you guys will stick around longer because I have tons of food trips and outfits planned for this summer. (Scratch the planned outfits part, I usually just grab what I can find...)

I LOVE STEAK TARTARE. You eat so well :) I'm going to eat some good food when I go home to Hong Kong. Going to document it all :) Thanks for the recommendation. I've never been or dined in Oakland, I guess if I ever decide to go, I'll check out this place!!!

Annabel, it may sound stupid, but if ever happens that you don't have anyone to eat with, I'd love to meet you and explore some great food around SF:).
