Coqueta

This is my second lunch at Coqueta.  The first was SO good that I couldn’t bring myself to take pictures or write notes.  Sometimes when food is that good, it could very well disappoint later.  But that wasn’t the case at Coqueta.  My friend, Debbie, and I had a fine..

Ozumo

Izakaya? I finally get it. We had to go to Walnut Creek last night, so we decided to avoid the traffic and have dinner in Oakland. (The new Caldecott Tunnel can’t come soon enough!!) We’ve been to Ozumo in San Francisco and Oakland many times. The downtown San Francisco spot..
