    I like that everything I see is something that I recognize 🙂 And that the addresses are familiar too!! Send me an email if you need recommendations or any info for things within the Bay Area!!

    I’m going to be at work tomorrow so don’t be shy and come say hi if you happen to be at Valley Fair Mall (I work at sunglass hut)!

      Hmm but fillet mignon doesn’t come with bacon? It’s just the cut of steak that’s called that? I loved it, it was so so so tender!

    It all looks awesome! Great service at the steak place! I love big breakfasts like that! I’ve always wanted to try biscuit & gravy, what was it like? It looks like a scone!

      I just love it when there’s good service, it totally makes a meal 🙂

      Ya the biscuit was like a slightly savory scone.. and the gravy was a bit weird IMHO, I couldn’t identify it 😉

    They should make steaks like donuts where you dunk them into coffee.

    Biscuits and gravy is exactly what it sounds like 🙂 It tends to be southern, my mum’s family looooooves it.

    Biscuits and gravy are a Southern American treat that is VERY popular here in the states. In fact, it is my FAVORITE breakfast meal ever. The gravy is made with sausage and usually some sort of flour like mixture. It’s sooo great if done right.

      I didn’t know it was breakfast food, I’d kinda expected it to be like a scone, and the gravy to be sweet 😛 I don’t think the hotel did it right though, the gravy was a bit strange!

        yeah, it’s totally opposite of scone and sweetness. the biscuit is often thick and even slightly powdery. the gravy is usually super thick and hevavy. …and doesn’t always taste like sausage until you actually bite into a piece. I think it’s pure perfection. 🙂 And just two biscuts with gravy will have me stuffed all day long. 🙂 It’s so hard to mess up and it would be a bummer if you hadn’t the chance to really experience what it was supposed to be!

        I love food just as much as you, so know the importance of the food being done just right.
