Best Meal Ever?!

A dinner at Shannon's is always a good time. This year's birthday dinner at Shannon's was absolutely bat shit crazy! Through a great Chef friend of ours (you know who you are AW), we were hooked up with some incredible food. View and weep, my friends. View and weep.

Dry-aged, Bone-in Ribeyes

Foie Gras

Kevin's homemade beer!

Just to, ya know, get us warmed up

Man, I hope this is enough for 3 people?!

The Foie Gras on a smokin' hot cast iron skillet.

The Ribeyes topped with seared Foie Gras with a side of truffled potato gratin.
Yup. We know how to eat.

Doesn't get much better than this.

An indulgent bite! Truffled potato gratin, foie gras, freshly shaved black truffle.

No fork needed!!

That's one thick cigar, Shannon!

Ridiculous chocolate tres leches made by my talented wife

I'm proud (?!) to say that I was the only one that finished their ENTIRE steak. I was in such a zone. My endorphins were firing full blast and I didn't stop until I cleaned my plate. Oh, and seconds of the potato dish and dessert.

A great night and one of the best meals of my life. Thank you Shannon and Kevin for a great time! -- Drew

Perfectly Grilled Swardfish

Swardfish is the perfect fish on the grill. It has the consistency of chicken and great mild fish flavor. I marinate mine in a home made mojo de ajo (roasted garlic oil) - Shannon

Shannon and I went to Rubio's yesterday and threw down some tacos! Shannon had been there a bunch of times, mostly in CA, but I had never been there. Everything was pretty solid, but the hit was definitely the Mango Habanero Mahi-Mahi tacos. Perfect blend of sweet and spicy. Wish I had some right now!

The "Original"

Carnitas, really good with the tomatillo salsa

Mango Habanero Mahi-Mahi, easily our favorite!

Portland has the best....

The best Thai I have ever had, hands down @ Pok Pok. You gotta try the Boars Collar. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this dish was. Super spicy but crazy good. The Pok Pok salad was stupid good and the Fish Sauce Wings will make you hate all other wings. While in this pacific northwest grub mecca I also experienced the best breakfast I have had in years at a place in Portland called Gravy. Without question it was the best corned beef hash I have ever come within a hundred miles of. Their biscuits and gravy were the best I have ever had outside of my house. Gravy is worth the trip alone. The other foody must have was Voodoo Doughnuts, you can't call yourself a foody until you have had a Bacon Maple bar from this house of sin. Portland has flat out blown me away. I had no idea how amazing this food town is. I can't wait to get back to this foody paradise. I must say however it would be nice to see the sun now and then but the food makes up for the lack of vitamin D.

Real eggs

Thanks to my friend and client, Brett, I was able to score some outstanding duck eggs last week. Needless to say, they're all gone. This is what a real egg should look and taste like! Thanks Brett! -- Drew
I love the unique colors

Ladies and Gentleman, THAT is a yolk
