Here to Stay

I'm back from Ashland. Had a nice meal on my night off, in fact. It was crazy hot there, which is how I like it, so all in all it wasn't a total wash.

I did not murder any adolescents. I think that deserves a big fat "Hip, Hip, Hooray!" right there.

I am not leaving to go anywhere until Independence Day. And in 25 days, I will be on a two and a half month hiatus from teaching, and, therefore, will be much more regular with my writing. I plan to become the Metamucil of the food blogging world (well, for two and a half months anyway).

Because I'm exhausted from all this jet setting/glorified babysitting, I'm taking requests/suggestions. Where should I eat (and write about) next?

xoxo

I'd love to see you check out Coi, the new Daniel Patterson place on Broadway.

you're tired, you've been traveling... you don't have to deal with the hubbub. head over to CHOU CHOU on laguna honda (right next to the forest hill muni station) and get yourself some soul-soothing french bistro comfort food to make you right again. seriously, go already!

I read all of your Thailand posts because I am leaving to go there in one week. (and yeah, I know I am going to be luxuriating in my own sweat the whole time!) It seems like you alluded to eating in some more hot spots in addition to Bed but they didn't make the blog? If that is the case do you care to reccomend any? I'll be in Bangkok and Chiang Mai as you were but my beach spot is Hua Hin so no need for island info.

I love your writing by the way! I am planning to try to get myself into TFL later this summer, I can only hope. But of course now you have raised the bar.

Richie -- you definitely win on this one; it's been on my list for awhile.

Emily -- shoot me an e-mail and I'll fill you in. Kuppa in Bangkok is great for a night when you feel like more variety (big ex-pat spot). The Chinese restaurant (Mei Jiang, I think?)in the Peninsula was pretty good. In Chiang Mai, Antique House is fun and there are a few other spots as well. I'll have to check my notes. A visit to the terrace bar out at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai is well worth your while as well.

Cat -- I know, I know. I'll get to Coi soon, I promise.

Anonymous -- I'm hesitant to do CP as I loved it under Humm so much and have heard the new chef, well, mostly sucks. And since it's my dime that I dine on, I'm going to wait for a better endorsement.

Anonymous 2 -- Yes, I have been to Boulevard many, many times. Just haven't gotten around to ever writing about it, but you're right -- I should.
