Shabu Pub

This week’s dining adventure was a visit to Shabu Pub, a hot pot restaurant in the Land Park neighborhood. It opened in 2016 in the space previously occupied by Blockbuster Video, but this was the first time I’d tried it.

Meet & Eat

I met my friend Deborah for lunch the other day at Meet & Eat in the Land Park neighborhood.

I’ll spend most of it getting mentally prepared for the NBA playoffs, but …

Canon

My husband Phil and I celebrated our anniversary this past week by having dinner at one of the hottest new restaurants in town, Canon. This East Sacramento eatery has been popular since the day it opened, so I made sure to get a reservation a couple of weeks ahead of time. The dinner menu, which changes seasonally, currently has four …

Mas Taco Bar

I just returned from a short vacation in Panama, which is why it’s been awhile since my last post. One of the first things I wanted to do when I got back to town was to try Mas Taco Bar on R Street, which opened a couple of weeks ago. So I headed over there for lunch today. Mas Taco …
