Spaghetti alla Carbonara

It’s a pleasure to break the yolk and mix it up with noodles and pancetta.

I loved this Spaghetti alla Carbonara from Gamine.

They have a straight-forward French bistro menu. All dishes for our dinner, from the mussels to the beef tartare, tasted great.

It’s a cozy food spot on the border of San Francisco’s Marina and Cow Hollow neighborhoods. With candle light, good wine and great service, it was a romantic night out with my hubby.

Our server shook our hands as we left the restaurant, wishing us a pleasant evening.

So classy!


My hubby and I celebrated our 6th anniversary at Papillon in Fremont last weekend. Our wedding date falls just a day after our first date ever. We ran around San Francisco, hunting for bizarre items in a thrift store scavenger hunt 11 years ago. We ended the night at Ghirardelli Square, holding hands and walking by the beach.

I’m happy that we found a sweet, romantic spot in Fremont to celebrate our relationship.
