Wuzhen, China 13 Novviembre, 2013 美味 Měiwèi Delicious / Deliciosa Al pasar frente a este pequeño restaurante junto al río, observe que la cocinera saboreaba el caldo con wontones acabaditos de hacer. Se veían tan frescos que decidí entrar y pedirme una orden de sopa wonton para mi almuerzo. Escaldante, me calentaba hasta los huesos, en ese día de cielos grises y ambiente húmedo y frío.

Luego sonrieron cuando les escribí que no les entendí. Una lástimaRead More →

Los postres tambien estuvieron deliciosos.Read More →

One of at least 31 Wineries in the Woodinville Wine Country, Washington State, this Winery was a pleasant surprise to discover. While visiting Seattle, we stopped to taste bottles blends of grapes from Yakima Valley , Columbia Valley Appelation, and Walla Walla Valley Wine Regions at three additional wineries. The hospitality offered by the owner of this Winery has been unparalleled so far. Below is a photo of him. The tasting room at the Washington Wine Company just opened in September of 2007.

Can Majo es uno de los más fantásticos restaurantes de pescado y mariscos en la Playa de Barceloneta. El ambiente en la terraza es elegante, las vistas al mar, excepcionales. Es dificil escoger entre las paellas, las langostas, los mejillones. Despues de una agradable mañana en la playa de Barceloneta, no hubo que caminar muy lejos para encontrar aqui una buena mesa en la sombra . De todos los que se alinean al frente de la playa, lo escogimos pues nos ofrecia el ambiente más tranquilo y más intimo. El servicio estuvo excelente. Los pescados y mariscos estuvieron fresquisimos, ademas de estar preparados y presentadosRead More →

While in Hong Kong on Hollywood Road, I ran into a very elegant Tea Shop and proceeded to purchase two pounds of Keemun Black Tea. When I got back to the hotel I realized it was from Harney & Sons, located in Connecticut: http://www.harney.com At the duty free shops in the Hong Kong airport I found one which sold the brand Fook Ming Tong and so I bought myself and my friends an additional couple of bags of the tea. When I finally had the opportunity to brew the tea in the peace and quiet of my home, I realized that I would have to get more,Read More →
