Every time I’ve been to DC, I have wanted to check out the annual orchid exhibition, but I always ran out of time to go. So this time around, I made a point to make it to the exhibit, which boasts hundreds of different orchids! I would highly recommend making a stop in here!
When I was in DC recently, my friend took me to one of the hottest restaurants in the capital called Rose’s Luxury, and it was certainly worth the 1.5 hour wait. We were greeted with the fluffiest milk bread with butter that was whipped to perfection. I could not stop lathering it on!
We hardly ever go out for dinner during the popular Restaurant Week because restaurants are very crowded, the menus are usually not very innovative, and we are often too enticed by items on the regular menu. But I am so glad we decided to head over to Roka Akor (Chicago location), the Asian fusion restaurant that I’ve been wanting to make it to for way too long.
I’m really lucky because I got to escape what is hopefully the worst of this Chicago winter yet again by spending my time in Naples, Florida. One of my favorite restaurants so far is The Bay House Restaurant, which is hidden away in the mangroves on the Cocohatchee River. We started out sitting outside, where you have a sweeping view of the river and the birds catching fish from the river.
It’s been REALLY REALLY long since I last wrote, so I must say a belated Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Years! My New Year’s resolution should probably be to write more blog posts… In any case, at the end of 2014, my husband and I finally went on our honeymoon to South Africa! Towards the beginning of our trip, we took a drive along the gorgeous Panorama Route just west of Kruger National Park.
Bottlefork balances its bar and its kitchen perfectly in the heart of River North (Chicago) with charcuterie plates, a wide selection of drinks (especially beers), and appetizers that satisfy your taste buds before you even get to the larger plates. Plus, this favorite Rockit Ranch restaurant is often featured on Tablesavvy, which gives you an extra 30% off your bill on day-of reservations!
With a possible polar vortex creeping up on us in Chicago, you may want to start planning your winter getaway to a warm, exotic place… like Bali, Indonesia! Last February, we spent some days in Bali, and while there, we stayed at Komaneka Tanggayuda. And that’s where we had our own private villa, which included an infinity pool and cabana overlooking the rainforest.
