Goodbye Virginia, hello Los Angeles!!! I arrived at night just in time for dinner and the start of a totally different dining experience. Welcome to land of stars and showbiz. Too bad I didn't see any celebrities during my short stay.

Washington DC has so many great restaurant maybe not as much as New York but it's pretty close. The only reason I don't get to eat in DC as much as I want to is I stay in Virginia with my cousin and it's not as easy to go to DC at night without driving and needing a babysitter for my cousin's kids.

When I was in San Francisco there were specialty coffee shops and roasters everywhere. I didn't even have time to try more than 4 shops. I didn't think I'd find any independent coffee shop in DC but thanks to Yelp I found Chinatown Coffee.

Ever since I started the Cohen Lifestyle diet last year I've eaten yogurt almost everyday. There are precise brands of yogurt that I must eat but when I was in Hong Kong last December I couldn't resist buying this French yogurt simply because it was on sale and I liked the blue terra cotta container.

My stay at Virginia was almost over so my cousins decided I spend the day in DC. La and I had lunch at Rasika then she dropped me off at Filene's Basement for some retail therapy.

I love happy hour! I love it for the cheap, good food more than the drinks. I was already quite satisfied with the food choices at PassionFish until Sha told me it was nothing compared to Ruth's Chris happy hour menu.

Ever since Thanksgiving I've been hankering for cornbread. I've even bought it at Whole Foods a couple of times. Cornbread is the main reason I requested to have lunch at Famous Dave's. Cornbread is integral in Southern food specially with barbecues.

I've always imagined a lifestyle of "champagne wishes and caviar dreams" but I've never found a partner to indulge my illusions of grandeur. When my friend John offered to take me flying in his plane I thought this was my chance to finally fly in a private plane.

I pass by Silver Diner every time I go to the mall and that's a lot of times over the years. I never thought of eating there since I usually associate diners as greasy spoons.

As a special treat for me since I've never experienced the delights of afternoon tea my cousin La invited Sha and me to Peacock Alley at The Willard InterContinental Hotel. They are very well known for their traditional afternoon tea which they have been serving for over a century.

My real destination in Georgetown was Baked and Wired. It took me a while to find it with only a picture from google map on my iPhone to guide me. But the lure of coffee and cookies made me even more determined to find the place.

My cousin La and I went to Ozzie's Corner Italian for a quick lunch because she had a free coupon for dessert. When we got there she realized that she left it at home. No worries I'm sure the food was going to be good since Ozzie's was a part of the Great American Restaurants chain.
