Every Sunday morning, my two friends and I try wake to up early, around 7:45, to log in some miles on some local trails around the neighborhood. I really enjoy these runs and look forward to them every week, we catch up on our gossip, log in our base miles and most importantly we make sure to catch some crepes at our local farmers’ market! After running between 5-6 miles a nutella crepe really hits the spot. Today, another one of our friends joined us and we introduced her to her first crepe ever! How exciting;)
We all happened to be wearing our Nike Frees today. I absolutely adore these shoes, they are so lightweight, cozy and quite stylish! They come in all assortments of colors, so you can even wear them when your not running:)
Then of course we go to the local community college to pick up our crepes, if I have enough money I usually get the nutella crepe with strawberries and bananas. Oh! It is just sooooo delicious, I LOOOOVE crepes! && the people at the crepe counter always spell my name correctly on the tray (which usually never happens) so that always makes my morning. Hee Hee
Sadly, I’ve been neglecting to post on my tumblr, due to my new exposure to Facebook(sigh). But my relationship with Tumblr is way stronger, so I will be posting more frequently! I hope Tumblr will take me back! :O Much thanks to my friend Favian for reminding me to post today :D
After going to my cousin’s high school graduation, we had a delicious lunch at a French-Vietnamese restaurant called Le Saigon Bistro in Castro Valley. This meal was soooooo amazing! And talk about great hospitality! The owners were so sweet and their dishes were so flavorful. This meal made me one happy girl.
fresh spring rolls with prawns
imperial rolls which included chicken & prawn, bean thread, scallions, shallot, and carrots wrapped in rice paper, deep fried, served w/fish vinaigrette
Bo Luc Lac- Le Saigon Beef (Filet Mignon) which includes cubed filet mignon marinated with a special house sauce and pan fried on high flame until medium rare
Tom Rim prawns which were huge and filled with flavor! First you savor all the seasoning that’s basted onto the prawns. Then you peel the shell off and dip the prawns back into the excess seasoning on the plate and bite into the succulent meaty prawn. WOO HOO
Ca Thu Rim- caramelized red tuna
This is the Papaya Salad that the owner let us try. Do you see those black flaky things on the top? When I first tried it I wasn’t quite sure what it was. Was it beef jerky? Olives? No! The owner told us it was cow heart! It tasted kinda like beef jerky and I really enjoyed it! Ahhhhh! Isn’t that so cool?! I ate COW HEART!!!
This is the Vermicelli bowl, served w/lettuce, mint leaves cilantro, shredded cucumbers, topped w/peanuts and fish vinaigrette
Fried bananas with coconut and pineapple ice cream. The owner buys her own vanilla ice cream and mixes coconut milk and pineapple. Yum Yum Yummy!
