Tavern Hall, FLO Sushi, and Sunday Dinner

As you all know. I LOVE food. So this weekend was like an eat-fest of deliciousness.

After cooking all week,  Michael and I decided to grab a meal out on Friday. We tried a new place called Tavern Hall in Bellevue. Tavern Hall is a pub-style bar with an Irish décor vibe to it. Known for their Moscow Mule on tap, Michael and I both had one.

For our dinner, Michael had the Tavern Burger and I had the Chicken Sando. If you ever go, get the Chicken Sando. It is by far the best chicken sandwich I've ever had. So crispy, served on a rustic bun, with a crisp coleslaw, and spicy aioli, you'll think you're in chicken sandwich heaven after a bite.

On Saturday, I got a surprise gift from one of my sisters. Tea! Oh I do love tea.

Then that night we did a prebirthday celebration with Michael's sister (our birthdays are three days apart) and her husband at FLO sushi. We exchanged gifts and it was such a strange coincidence that we both got each other Kate Spade gifts!


Sunday was very rainy (as I write this, it's still raining), so Michael and I kept it low key. I spent the morning reading SPEAK (book review to come!) while Michael organized the garage and basement. For dinner, we realized we wanted to do something special because we'd be missing each other the next two weekends due to travel. Alas we did a team effort and made steak with onions and a green bean casserole. We opened a Maurice's estate Syrah from 2009 (my fave!) and had some dark chocolate for dessert.

A very good weekend of deliciousness indeed!


  1. So much fun!! ^_^
    Do you know that I have never made green bean casserole?! And this is really a shame because I'm known for being "lazy" and making casseroles all the time. Lol!

  2. All of that stuff looks super yummy. Was that flower-shaped dessert a mochi desert?! It looks amazing! ^_^

  3. Krystal - Oh em gee! Remedy that! But don't make it from like canned green beans or canned mushrooms sauce. That's the worst! Making it from scratch is so much better. I recommend Minimalist Baker's Vegan Green Bean Casserole. It's become a staple recipe at my place now :)

    Alex - Thank you! And yes, mochi! I love mochi filled with ice cream :)

  4. Love the copper mug...and that burger. My stomach's growling (guess, I shouldn't stop by here around lunch time.) And the Mochi looks amazing too.

    1. They all were amazing :) Yes my blog isn't the best stop if you're hungry.

  5. I still can't get over this great place I recently visited! This isn't only a good event space NYC. It is also one of the best around here. There isn't a listing of the unique offerings, although there should be! This place was magnificent!
