Sunday brunch is a meal I enjoy very much and yesterday’s brunch was especially enjoyable with Kevin’s brother joining us from Ireland. He was passing through Baltimore for less than 24 hours. Very short visit! Wish he could’ve stayed longer! We planned to go out for Korean BBQ as soon as he got in Saturday night, but we could tell he was pretty wrecked from all the traveling. So instead, we had a quiet night in with Five Guys bacon cheeseburgers and fries and a nice bottle of red wine. It was a lovely night catching up on everything that’s been going on back home since our last visit. It’s funny listening to Kevin and his brother talk and joke around. It was like we were back in Ireland! Maybe I’m just used to Kevin’s accent or (oh, Kevin’s not going to like me saying this…) maybe Kevin is sounding more American 😉 , but I find their accents to be very different from each other. It took me a good 15 minutes to adjust my ears to understand what my brother-in-law was saying HAHA. (more…)

A few weeks ago, I saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. In this particular episode, he was traveling around Northern Thailand with Chef Andy Ricker, ‘the white guy who cooks awesome Thai food.’ After the episode, Kevin and I knew we had to eat at Pok Pok when we went to Portland. Turns out he owns quite a few establishments on the same street, SE Division St. – Pok Pok, Whiskey Soda Lounge, and Sen Yai. Yea, we went to all of them…and you know what? He seriously does cook awesome Thai food! I should call this post lisbeth eats… Thailand 😉
