Indian papad and spicy salmon poke and homemade sesame tuna, oh my!
While the poke was store-bought, I made the papad and sesame tuna in-house. The tuna only required a good roll in toasted sesame seeds, then a quick searing on all sides in a pan with a drizzle of vegetable oil. As a sauce to accompany the fish, I mixed ponzu, soy, green onions, toasted sesame oil, garlic and a little apple cider vinegar. I think I’ll include a little ginger next time, too.
The papad only took a few seconds per side on a gas stove to bubble and become crispy. yum.
Happy National Bourbon Day! Educate yourself, then find a cocktail.
Bourbon may not get its name from Bourbon County, according to Louisville, Kentucky-based historian Michael Veach. Instead, he argues that the name probably came from New Orleans’ Bourbon Street, to where French distillers, who made the whiskey in Kentucky, shipped their spirits.
A fox and an owl decide to meet for tea in the wood. I wonder what they discussed…
Yes, please. Also, why can’t I find something like this (Russ & Daughters) in San Francisco? Where are you hiding!?
I’ve never had Burmese food before, but after one visit to Yamo, I’m already waiting to get back ASAP.
We started with the tea salad (above) with tea leaves, cabbage, green onion, peanuts, dried shrimp and bean sprouts. A delicious, crunchy and light way to start.
I opted for the chicken curry with noodles that included bell pepper, onions, fried potatoes and chicken. The flavors were like an interesting mix of Indian curry and bold Asian spices. I didn’t love the potatoes in the dish, but I would consider ordering this again.
S went with the Yamo noodles that included onions, chicken and fried garlic. While he loved the flavors, he did wish for more veggies.
Oh, and did I mention that the entire menu is $6 or LESS? With the seating so limited, barely 10 people can fit at the counter, I think we’ll opt for take-out next time.
I FINALLY watched Drive this weekend, and I can’t seem to shake this song from my head. I didn’t realize just how perfect the soundtrack is for the movie either. This was definitely a favorite.
