With my Foodie BFF and fellow foodies in San Francisco, I went to Sorrel Restaurant for their Fourth Annual White Truffle and Barolo Dinner. Hearing so much about Chef Alexander Hong and Sorrel, I was very excited to taste all what they had to offer, and a few highlights of the tasting menu really stood out for me that night.
Chef Tu David Phu (of An: A Vietnamese Experience) teamed up with Chef Keone Koki (of Commis) and Chef Edward Martinez of (Lazy Bear) and hence T.E.K. at AlaMar Kitchen & Bar in Oakland, CA. Foodies in the San Francisco Bay Area and fans of these chefs congregated together for this amazing, unique dining experience.
We began our meal on a high note with a cocktail, made by Chef Nelson German of AlaMar. What a special treat to have a cocktail made by the chef himself! If you love blueberries like me, then you will love this! The amount of sweetness was just right, and it tasted like a delicious, “liquored up” blueberry juice. The mint made the drink refreshing.
Hubby and I had the pleasure to attend AN‘s March 4th One Year Anniversary in Oakland, CA with my fellow Foodie friends. It was also my and hubby’s first Pop-Up Dining experience ever. Heard of the amazing Chef Tu and lovers of Vietnamese food, we were very excited about this experience! We were so impressed by what we were going to sample in the evening:
