Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. -George Bernard Shaw Welcome to 2015! With some light traveling and holiday events the time just flies on by. Hope everyone has had a chance to enjoy a wonderful holiday and a fantastic kickstart into …

(Ironically, this mega entrepreneur has never stepped foot inside of Buck’s because of a personal fall out with Jamis MacNiven, the owner of Buck’s.)
Buck’s of Woodside is a popular diner that has been built with so much history. The diner itself is filled with a cornucopia of eclectic and interesting items that alone, is worth the visit. The place can feel like a tourist attraction and without judging, there is more than meets the eyes.
What you may not know about this old town diner is that it is also famed for its “Big business breakfast” meetings. This is where investors go. A mega hot-spot where first and second-round funding takes place for startups. Big names like Google, Paypal, Tesla, Yahoo! and more have been spotted at Buck’s!
If you have an idea and you want to be seen, perhaps this is where you should have your morning meetings at. 😉
Otherwise, the food is your average fair with a staff that has been there for an average of 15 years. Filled with stories to listen to and the calm woodsy surroundings will have you wanting to take a afternoon stroll or bike ride around this charming town.
While others make it big at Buck’s of Woodside, you will find me at my favorite brunch spot next door at The Village Pub.
Either way, it’s a win-win so check it out.
Mix fruit juice of the day – Small
Guava jam looks like a good choice
A avocado burger will hit the spot
I’ve never had croissants turned into french toast before. I am going to have to test this out at home! It was pretty good.
My eyes are certainly bigger then my stomach.
Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone is prepared for the long extended weekend! I know my belly is.
Woke up this morning craving Cantonese style abalone jook aka congee. Decided to venture somewhere close by that we have never been before. Tai Wu Mr. Fong’s Restaurant it is! Open at 11am tucked, away in a tight plaza where parking can be tight and the fog is always looming over us. The food is slightly above average. This place has an attentive staff with good value for the food being served. I should come back during dinner and experience their $15 peking duck special.
Somehow we ended up ordering what feels like everything except for jook! Feast your eyes out on my early afternoon selection!
Dim sum refers to a style of Cantonese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, whereby fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dim_sum
