Lunch :: Burgers + Chinese + Thai, oh my



During the past couple months, I decided that spending money on experiences was more important than spending money on things. This was not a conscious decision; I barely shopped at all, and didn't even notice until recently. Having new clothes has become less of a priority as I explore new places through dining and travel. In fact, my wardrobe continues to shrink as I pore through my belongings and pack for the upcoming move. Anyway, here are a few local places I've enjoyed recently that I'm just now getting the chance to share.






That last photo is from the first time I ate at Blue Dog Tavern, one year ago. Since then, it's become one of my favorite burger joints! I love that there are vegetarian options, I love that it's not a chain, and I love that the walls are covered with photos of dogs. The burger shown above comes with pepper-jack cheese and deep-fried jalapenos. Yum! I'm going to miss being able to walk here.






I didn't find out until recently that Chinese food isn't all about beef and chicken! Spring rolls, cream cheese wontons, and kung pao tofu were all found at Frontier Wok. I'll be back -- everything was delicious!




I've been regularly visiting Amazing Thai ever since Adam recommended it a long time ago. Pad See Ew is my favorite dish... Though it's not supposed to be spicy, I always ask for it to be added. I've never tried anything else, and I've never been disappointed. :)

  3. Oh yum! Whatever that sandwich with avocado is, I want it in front of me, right now. But Thai sounds delicious too...great, now I'm hungry, haha! I'm definitely with you - experiences are so, so much more important than buying junk you don't need!

  6. Oh those fries look so awesome. I understand the idea of spending more money on experiences rather than clothes. I get that way sometimes too. I've actually been buying less and less clothes lately as well (still shopping for accessories though). Been spending money on experiences like iFly, boat cruises, etc. It's a good way to spend your money actually. :)
