The Perfect Pint

Davis is a fantastic town for beer fans!
Little Prague had the same pilsner we sampled on the streets of Stare Mesto (Old Town). My favorite meal in the Czech Republic: Cold pilsner with hot sausage in a bun, standing next to a food truck. I remember brushing away snowflakes from my face.
Prince Julep and Strawberries Napoleon in Davis
In Davis, Little Prague had a great selection of Czech beer and absinthe cocktails, like this Prince Julep. I was also addicted to the devil’s toast: Czech bread covered with spicy ground beef, pork and cheese.
Amazing Beer
Another place to fuel up on beer in Davis: Burgers and Brew. Unlike it’s Sacramento counterpart, the Davis location had a wonderful patio and it has a bigger selection of beer.

My hubby was impressed with the Belgium beers on the menu. The kitchen knew how to serve up burgers, medium-rare and plenty of flavor. This is the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger.

In My Belly for 2010

This time last year, I got a Fortunate You necklace from Tea Stain clothing in Sacramento. The fortune said: “You will step on the soil of many countries.”

A combination of wanderlust, luck and professional opportunity made that fortune come true in 2010.

I sampled fresh fish and explored new flavors in Russia as a guest lecturer for St. Petersburg State University.

We celebrated my birthday with ceviche on the beach in Ensenada.

Finally, I left my Sacramento newsroom behind and became the Newark Patch editor. In this Alameda County city, I cover news, politics, crime and other issues that matter to Newark residents. Plus, I have a chance to profile all the amazing food spots in Newark.

Where Aggies Eat

Our home away from home: Davis. When we want good food, tasty drinks and a refreshing atmosphere, we got to this college town.

Delta of Venus
A few weekends ago, we enjoyed happy hour beer and hummus at the Delta of Venus.

Sushi in Davis
I also enjoyed all the fresh fish at Mikuni’s in Davis. This is part of a big chain with other locations in Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.

Taro's in Davis
The lunch specials on sushi rolls are huge!
