California, Baby!

Sigh. I miss California.



Here's one of my favorite Crepe places, Crepevine in Burlingame. My friend and I had a scrumptious (and way too filling) lunch there. We started with Cornbread and Jalapeno
Jelly. Followed by a Meditteranean crepe (filled with spinach, goat cheese and almond slivers). The crepes were accompanied by great house potatoes and a salad that was so fresh. I miss eating salads in India! It was a lovely sunny Californian day and it was perfect to eat crepes and drink fizzy orange drinks!







We went to a nice Dim Sum place. My favorite is Ton Kiang in the city. I wonder why they don't have Dim Sum in Chennai?? Man, I love the pea shoot leaves and Sesame balls...mmmmm...



And my personal favorite, Noah's Everything Bagels with Jalapeno Salsa. I miss them the most in Chennai. With Pete's coffee.



And Auntie Anne's jalapeno pretzel...



But most of all I miss my friends, the great times we have hanging out, driving around the beautiful countryside, Californian wine, endless chats over "tea", the BBQs in the great Californian weather. I miss California...it'll always be home.
