A quick stop at a chocolatier in the city of Doncaster. some lovely chocolates that are actually free with every beverage purchase! We ended up getting a coffee shake; a marriage of a milk shake and coffee. Quite nice!

Housed in a re-purposed old fire station in Boston, Massachusetts, O Ya is a one of a kind restaurant. The food is truly superb and the experience is one I wish I could relive over and over; reference: Groundhogs day. If you happen to be in Boston and have a free evening, you should surely try and call, but honestly this is the type of establishment one would want to reserve a few weeks in advance; this will assure you a spot in their humble / intimate 37 seated eatery. I did not follow such a plan, but luck was on my side as somehow, during my way from Western Massachusetts (a 2 hr drive), my call with the folks at O Ya proved successful and was able to snag a spot at the chef’s counter!
I ate SO well that evening. Dish after dish, I dared not pair alcohol with my food as I wanted to savor and remember every bite, at least to the best of my ability. My favorite was a tie between the Onsen Egg and the Diver Sea Scallop. Those two dishes just had so much flavor, multi-textural contrasts, and had both land & sea elements that worked well. Definitely want to go back and eat those again.
Thanks all, until next time.

A really good place to grab a solid burger. Went with my friend Sarah to check this place out. First time I had a burger with a sunny side egg on it; recommended to break the egg yolk and let it ooze all over the burger to compliment the flavors and be the binding agent that brings it all together. Good food / good night. I think I had one of the worst food comas in 2011 because of that burger.
