Kasbah Revisited

When I blogged about Kasbah Lounge in midtown a few years ago, it was owned by the same family that owned the restaurant next door, Tapa the World. A vegan menu had been compiled from the menus of both restaurants, and you could order items from Kasbah even if you were eating at Tapa the World, and vice versa. Since …

How To Avoid Dishpan Hands

Use oven mitts! I was born with dishpan hands. It’s embarrassing, especially when I shake hands with other people. I’m sure it feels like rubbing against coarse sandpaper.

I finally got around to driving to Carmichael the other day to check out the new Milagro Centre, which opened last summer.

Bangkok Garden Thai Cuisine

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Greta and I tried to go to lunch at Tuk Tuk in Natomas, but we were surprised to discover that the restaurant had closed. Fortunately, Greta knew of another Thai restaurant just a short drive away, Bangkok Garden. The first thing I noticed on Bangkok Garden’s menu was the notation at the bottom …

Barnes & Noble Kitchen

Two of my very favorite things to do are to look for new vegan food and to shop for books. So you can imagine my delight when I found out that a new Barnes & Noble bookstore had opened in Folsom late last year, and it had a restaurant right there in the store. My friend Michele and I drove …
