Bay Area Views From Mt. Diablo

Karla

I hiked Mt. Diablo in Clayton, CA (Contra Costa County). Upon entrance, you must drive up to the winding road until you see a large parking lot where hiking trails start. There are several hiking trails; some are short and long. Mt. Diablo Summit is a great spot to see the incredible view of the bay area.

Best Brunch Spot in Sacramento

Karla

bacon-and-butter-brunch-sacramento

My favorite spot in Sacramento to eat brunch is at Bacon & Butter. Their gravy is to die for! Must try is the Biscuit Sandwich with a poached egg. Breakfast Burger (as pictured) is also as good, but a little heavy on the breakfast side for me. Expect to wait long during their busiest time (weekends - in the morning to noon).

Wildlife You'll See Roaming in Wyoming

Karla

 

The landscape is astonishing in Yellowstone National Park, but what's more beautiful are the wildlife. I was constantly looking around for wildlife and the first time I saw a herd of bisons was unexpected. It took me by surprise as I was driving in the park and suddenly they came out of the woods and crossed the road. It was amazing and magical to see these creatures roam freely right next to you. 

 

The Only Place For Sushi and Seafood

Karla

 

Located in Zhongshan District, Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產 has the best sushi and seafood in Taipei. It is composed of different areas such as the fresh seafood market, stand-up bars (sushi bar, seafood bar and wine bar), pre-packaged sushi and buffet-style hot food. 

 
 

MARKET PLACE

You'll be amazed by all the fresh seafood available right when you enter Addiction Aquatic. It has everything you can think of from clams, fresh catch of the day to lobster and prawns. The options are endless!

 
 

TO-GO AREA/HOT FOOD

Due to its popularity, the seafood and sushi bar is usually busy and the wait could be fro 30-45 minutes. If you're not keen to waiting and want something quick, opt for the to-go sushi and hot food. Sashimi, nigiri, uni and different type of sushi rolls are available. They also offer Chinese food in the hot food area. This is also a cheaper option compared to the seafood and sushi bar. 

 
 

SEAFOOD BAR

With all the choices at the seafood bar, I opted for the assorted seafood platter. I really liked the crab, abalone, and oysters. It's so fresh that I don't need to pair it with any other sauce. My bill came out to 1,300NT. Pricey for the locals, but I think it was well worth it for the quality. It would've cost more if I had the exact same dish back in California. The wait was about 30 minutes.

SUSHI BAR

This is my favorite part of the place and would highly recommend to try first. The sushi is incredibly delicious! With all the food I ordered, it felt like I sampled everything on the menu. Each piece is carefully curated to ensure the presentation and taste is top notch. The sushi and nigiri sets (200NT - 600NT) are perfect for tasting a little bit of everything. Individual dishes are also available.
