Jun 08, 2015 – [Monday] The Places I Called Home: Mexican

South Bend, USA, taken on May 9, 2009

I had a Mexican colleague during my internship at Notre Dame, and our house became a “Canadian-Mexican embassy” for one day as the Canadians (us) and the Mexican decided to hold a feast. Well, more like our Mexican friend offered to cook an entire Mexican meal for us, which was delicious of course. It’s been 6 years already! Where are you, my Mexican friend?

January 24, 2014 – At Dan’s

I went to Dan, a friend’s restaurant in downtown Bordeaux, for lunch today. Hidden in a little alley, they’ve been open for about 3 months and I’ve wanted to go try their fusion-style Chinese cuisine ever since it was advertised. This is called “Nouilles Ho Fan sautées au boeuf mariné et soja frais”, which is a variation of the classic Cantonese beef fried noodles. I gotta say it was quite a pleasant surprise and definitely an exquisite meal!

January 09, 2014 – Confit de canard

I went out for dinner with friends at a specific restaurant in Bordeaux just for its confit de canard (duck confit). It is truly a heavenly delight for the tongue and this restaurant might have just become one of my favourites in Bordeaux, solely because of its confit. The roasted potatoes were also excellently prepared and complements the confit quite well. Southwestern French cuisine is something I will definitely miss a lot!
