Austin Here We Come

We are heading to Austin for SXSW and we couldn’t be more excited. We have been scouring the web for info about concerts, food, and shopping and the more we research the more we can’t wait to visit the next weirdest city to Portland (Which we have also visited in the past 5 months. We are on a roll.)  More Austin posts to come.

Miho Gastrotruck Food Truck in North County San Diego

We discovered that the Miho Gastrotruck food truck was coming to North County, only about 15 minutes from our office, we were watching the clock all morning ’til lunch. The infamous farm to street food truck of San Diego usually doesn’t come up in our direction but now they have new locations in Poway and Rancho Bernardo for us to enjoy. As we pulled up and made our orders I was not only salivating over the menu but the well designed truck packed with amazing uses of type and creative uses of food quotes. Our food was delicious and the design was dessert. (Speaking of dessert…Next time we will get there early so we can get the Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookie.)  Check out their site at Miho Gastrotruck food truck for the up-to-date schedule and locations. Thanks for venturing out to North County Miho!

Olive and Thyme

On our way to the taping of the Ellen Show we decided to stop for lunch in Burbank, California and ended up in this adorable gourmet café and marketplace. We actually had plans on going next door but after seeing the food and the perfectly designed décor, we were all instantly drawn into Olive and Thyme. We shared the very spicy and delicious Braised Shortrib Sandwhich with horseradish créme fraiche and carmelized onion on country sourdough, as well as the Chinese Chicken Salad.  And we couldn’t resist trying some of their pretty desserts. From the embossed logo on the oval plates to the industrial lighting this yummy café is filled with lots of eye candy. We were all thrilled that we found such a great lunch spot to compliment our girls-day-out in LA.
