    Red, White and Blueberry Pork Buns

    Fourth of July-themed food can be undeniably cheesy, but we’ve got a great way to embrace the red, white and blue color scheme (and no, we’re not talking about whipped cream-frosted, berry-decorated sheet cake). Our fluffy, snow-white Chinese steamed buns are glazed with a spicy, blueberry-sriracha sauce, and topped with ribbons of crunchy red cabbage, for a fabulous party dish that’s totally holiday appropriate, yet entirely unique!

    O-Ya – Review

    I’ll be honest: I thought I would hate O-Ya. It gave me anxiety right from the start. I mean, it’s not everyday that you have to put a credit card down for a mere two-top reservation. (Not to mention the $100 per person fee if you cancel within 24 hours.) In fact, the cheapest ticket to entry at O-Ya is $185 for an 18-piece “sushi” omakase. And if you’re really hungry or a glutton, you can splurge on a 23-course meal for a whopping $245 per person…

Posted on Jun 26, 2015 in Destination Dining, Eating Events
