Friday, June 3: For dinner, my friend, Taylor, made stir fry tofu, which had broccoli, onions, and various sauces like soy and oyster. It was delicious, and more importantly, pretty healthy. She had some Chinese spicy sauce that was the perfect complement to the bowl. Didn’t take long to make it, so I need to get this in my repertoire. She also prepared salmon with glazed teriyaki sauce. de-lish. Only thing was that it wasn’t boneless, but no big deal. Excellent meal. Inspired me to get salmon at Safeway yesterday :).
Thursday, June 2: Ate The Rib Whip. The company never tried it before, so it was a new experience for all of us. The food truck serves Midwest-style BBQ, and one of its most popular items is the Kobe (Beef) Brisket Sandwich. It was good and filling. Kobe beef, according to Wikipedia, is cuts of beef of a certain type of cattle raised in a certain way in Japan. ”The meat is generally considered to be a delicacy, renowned for its flavour, tenderness, and fatty, well-marbled texture.” It certainly was, but I didn’t particularly like the fatty parts of it. It’s something I need to try again to form a better opinion. I was preoccupied reading an article about Tim Lincecum in a sports magazine so I wasn’t fully concentrating on the food at hand.
Interesting fact: Kobe Bryant was named in part after this type of meat.

Wednesday, June 1: Ate dinner with the account management team. The four of us had a really good time chillin together. The place we went to was Una Pizza. The first thing I noticed when walking in was how different the environment was - the pizzamaker prepares the pizza right in front of the entrance, there’s a fire stove behind him, the walls are white and empty, and the ceiling is really high. Very minimalistic. It was quite a wait for a table and the actual pizzas. The pizzas tasted pretty good, but were really pricey at $20 per. Not exactly sure why, but I think they pride themselves on the best, freshest ingredients straight from Italy. We had wine with the pizza as well. Really classy. I’m not a big fan of wine, but they tasted nice.
Tuesday, May 31: had the pork “Senor” Sisig burrito. It comes with adobe rice, pinto beans, lettuce, salsa, and cilantro cream sauce. Good, but the pork was a bit salty so I preferred the California Sisig burrito with chicken I tried last time. The California Sisig burrito has fries though, so I didn’t want to stack on those calories. Going with chicken from here on out.
