At Dos Chinos, I got my Bolsa Plate, which is pork bellies with cilantro, tomatillo, cabbage over garlic rice. Shhh!! It's not on the menu!!

At Swinging Kitchen, we picked the Scallop Ceviche, and the Pho-ench Dip, which is brisket on a baguette, but pho broth for dipping. Lastly, we stopped at Oh For Sweets Sake for a Strawberry & Cream cupcake.
