    Yay, In N Out! I eat there all the time! If you haven’t already you should also try Dick’s Drive In in Seattle, WA. I like their burgers better. =)

    Welcome to the Bay Area! There are some In & Out burgers near you e.g. in Milpitas, in Mountain View etc., don’t have to go all the way to Gilroy for your fix 😉

    I am sure you have alot of yummy eating places up your sleeves but if you have time, do go to Gochi (Cupertino) for great Jap food. They serve tapas style Jap food. They do require reservations. Another good option is Tanto (San Jose)! If you can get into Kaygetsu (Menlo Park), thst’s even better! Try opentable.com for reservations for Kaygetsu.

    AND you must must must head over to R&G in SF for the yummiest salt & pepper crab, special beef etc.,

    Let me know if you want any more reccs! Enjoy your trip!

    I think that UA’s business class gives better toiletries stuff than Northwest or KLM. For Northwest, the bag had the toothbrush plus teeny tiny toothpaste (kinda like a one day use), chapstick, eye shades, socks, comb and that was it. KLM’s was also similar – pretty lousy stuff however, KLM does give a really nice porcelain miniature house with brandy in it.

      It tastes… raw, haha! It’s actually salty because of the sauce, and a bit fishy from the oysters. The egg doesn’t have a taste. OK i know it sounds really awful, but it’s quite nice! 🙂
