Restaurants 2018

This page lists 127 meals I ate in restaurants in 2018. Cities are in California except as noted, cost is per person including tip. I have kept complete restaurant data since 2010, though I generally don't list Costco shopping trip hot dog lunches or banh mi to go. In rare instances where a restaurant experience is particularly noteworthy, I post a review on Yelp under a pseudonym.

This page is dedicated to a few old favorites, gone but not forgotten: Elsie's, Kapok, Hsi Nan, El Tazumal, Cendrillon, Thanh Da.
