Lunch with Marie

I had been to the bakery in Palo Alto (which has wonderful rich cakes), but the one in San Jose is a nice cafe for lunch with yummy sandwiches and soup.

Messob Ethiopian Restaurant

Dinner with Rosabel

Low key place in Piedmont. Had never had Ethiopian food, but loved eating with my hands and the puffy bread, and they had a great combo plate for $18 that just stuffed the two of us.

Garam Masala

Friday, February 1, 2008

We had lunch at this Indian place off of Marienplayz on our last day in Munich. SO good. We probably went overboard on the ordering, helped by one Indian colleague and another who's lived there, but delicious and filling.
