I don't eat Thai often but I do get excited when I'm about to have some! In fact, I might go even more often if I just knew where to go... So this sort of marks the beginning of my personal food quest for this year. Or to be more accurate, my Pad See Ew quest, which is my favorite Thai dish. I also like curries but I gotta focus on one thing at a time!

As a starter, we went very local to Thai House Cusine in the Convoy area.

I was really itching to try a new japanese restaurant in Hillcrest but there was a 40 minute wait for a Saturday lunch. Hungry Dennis wanted food right away so we decided to revisit Ramen Yamadaya. I wasn't too happy with the cell phone pictures from our other review so this time we came prepared. Also, we got to sit in the large patio area that we heard about last time. The wood tables and open area seemed to be a nice place to dine out with a larger group.

Dennis ordered the Kakuni Ramen this time with the spicy broth at the lowest level (1 of 3). I snuck a taste and ...

We were shopping at Ikea and Costco when hunger struck! Since we always pass by Oki Ton Japanese Bistro in this area, we decided to check it out for ourselves.

Our first visit (of three) to Old Town this December was Barra Barra Saloon, a restaurant we originally found through Tequila Trail 2012. One big reason was that there was a promotion on their website: "On the 5th day of your birthday month, you eat free! (up to $12)". So yea, here we are!

Our second visit (of three) to Old Town this December was Miguel's Cocina, another restaurant we originally found through Tequila Trail 2012. I picked this place to celebrate my birthday with friends and it was a great choice! The patio area was roomy and filled with sunshine and smiles of course, because they get to spend time with meeee!

During a birthday month, we eat LOTS of food. Benihana is one of our go-to restaurants because members of the Chef's table get up to $30 toward your meal! This time, my family was visiting town so we had dinner to celebrate both my mom's and my birthday!
