The year is winding to a close, and this blog about "food and funny" has yet to address one of my favorite topics in the world: EATING! Here are the restaurants I first tried in 2010 and can't stop thinking about (and the dishes that inspired me!):

The Akamaru Modern is an AMAZING!
Ingredients: noodle soup with Ippudo's special sauce, pork belly chashu, cabage, kikurage, scallions, miso paste & fragrant garlic oil
Make sure you ask for it with a boiled egg. It used to come that way, but now you have to request it (and OH MAN is it delicious!)

Yerba Buena 
Try the Tacos De Pescado.
Ingredients: crispy tilapia baja style, jicama cabbage, chipotle slaw
Delicious! I know what you're thinking: "Gross, I'd rather gouge my eyes out than eat fish tacos" (or maybe you weren't thinking that at all, in which case you probably think I'm crazy). But trust me, this dish will convert you. Also try the Choclo (Peruvian corn, aji amarillo butter)

I recommend the Moqueca de Frutos do Mar com Pirao de Peixe (but i don't recommend trying to pronounce this to the waiter! Tell him you want a #18, they'll know what you mean)
Ingredients: squid, shrimp and fish with coconut milk, cilantro, tomatoes, and "dende" palm oil served with fish and yucca flour puree.
You'll feel right at home at this restaurant (pun intended... but seriously it's true. So cozy!).

6th Street Kitchen
Ok, so it was only a special and you might never be able to get it again (don't hate me!)...But let me tell you, I'll be dreaming about this dish for the rest of my life:
Pork Belly with Avocado and Buttermilk
Ingredients: same as above

HEAVEN ON EARTH! All the other dishes I tried there were scrumptious too, and the atmosphere was amazing! New favorite place for least for now...

Restaurants I want to try in 2011: Casa Mono (can't believe I still haven't tried!), Ai Fiori, Traif, ABC Kitchen
