My 10 most memorable food experiences

There is no doubt I am happiest when I am eating. I love food. Food is life. It enriches the soul. I plan my next meal while I am eating the current one. All my travels around the world are remembered through the food experiences I have. It is one of the many reason's I am so jealous of Anthony Bourdain, I know from reading his essays that his life is not as glamorous as it appears, but I would … [Read more...]

My Weekend Routine

We do a fair amount of traveling in the Misadventures household. I usually attend at least one local food or travel event during the week and I go to restaurants (or take out from them) for lunch everyday and the hubby and I eat out for dinner a couple of times a week. But when it comes to the weekend, unless I am off exploring, my routine is pretty consistent. Refined over many years, Mr. … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – Lamb Shui Mai from M.Y. China

I took a few of my co-workers to M.Y. China at the Westfield San Francisco Centre to try out the secret menu item that Chef Tony and I collaborated on, lamb shui mai (see the full story of how we did it). I think we ordered half the menu and enjoyed absolutely every dish! Midway through the meal we had a surprise visit from Chef Martin Yan (the M Y in M.Y. China). He wanted to say “hi” and to … [Read more...]

Dine on Time App at Westfield San Francisco Centre

Once I was selected as a Westfield Food Tastemaker, I was anxious to hear which restaurant I would be matched up with.  I had suggested two, but was not sure who I would ultimately collaborate with. When I found out it was M.Y. China, I was so psyched.  If you have been reading Misadventures with Andi for any length of time (or follow me on FourSquare to see my weekly check-ins or my Instagram or … [Read more...]

San Francisco Bay Area Dimsum Guide

San Francisco's deep Chinese immigrant history makes it a formidable contestant as one of the best places to get dimsum in the United States (maybe even the world after Hong Kong). As San Franciscans began moving out of the Chinatown area and into cities all over the Bay Area, the number of really great dimsum places grew exponentially. I eat dimsum nearly every weekend, so I'd consider myself a … [Read more...]

San Francisco for Vegetarians

San Francisco for vegetarians is possbile! I have had several people reach out to me to say they were on their way to San Francisco and traveling with vegetarians and/or vegans and did I know some good restaurants to recommend. Food is on my mind 24/7 and I am constantly seeking out new things to try in San Francisco (or wherever I go) so I have had the opportunity to eat at some great … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #115

I just returned from a social media conference in San Diego, a spot I seemed to end up several times a year and each time I go there it grows on me more and more. I stayed at the Doubletree by Hilton where the conference was actually being held.  I am a Starwood/SPG fan, so my first inclination is always to stay at one of their properties, but there is a convenience factor when a conference is … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #99

By all rights I should be on a cleanse this weekend. That statement in and of itself cracks me up because I am writing it after just returning from dim sum. For the second time this week.  That's right I have officially earned the badge of "glutton" with all the eating I did this past week. My colleague from London, whom I had just visited a few week ago was in town this week. A perfect excuse … [Read more...]

Friday Food Foto – London Dim Sum Adventures

It hasn't been the most "exciting" food week in London.  It has been jam-packed days where we are grabbing a quick lunch.  And as my colleagues live outside of London with long commutes, my evenings have been picking up something to-go to eat while doing email in the hotel.  Don't get me wrong there is a multitude of fresh fast food options and I have had take out from the Japan center, fresh … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #94

I spent half the week in Los Angeles for the Grammy's rehearsals and the weather in Los Angeles was absolutely gorgeous! A perfect 75 degrees, which is about twenty degrees warmer than it is in San Francisco right now and way too many to count for my friends in France!  I will blog about my experience attending the Grammy's rehearsals for the second year in a row, but I did a tiny post on Dolby's … [Read more...]
