Is it already the end of February?! And I’m barely posting about what Chris and I did for Valentine’s Day?! Whoops. Life has been rather busy, and I’ve finally finished catching up with my travel posts from December, so time to shift gears into a foodie file post!

TAHOE JOE’S

Since I had work on Valentine’s Day, Chris and I decided to have lunch the next day at Tahoe Joe’s. TJ’s has happy hour from 11am-6pm on weekdays and that’s basically the only reason we went there for. When we arrived, the lady sat us in the regular dining area but we asked to move to the bar for the happy hour prices.

We ended up getting the Railroad Camp Shrimp, Onion Straws, Spinach & Artichoke Dip, and Cabin Fries. The shrimp was amazing. It’s basically tempura-battered shrimp served with a spicy garlic-soy dipping sauce. 10/10 would come back just for that.

THAI BASIL RESTAURANT

The next day, I was craving Thai food so we headed over to Thai Basil Restaurant for dinner. It was a little out of the way for us since it was on the other side of town, but we still made the drive. Chris got the cashew chicken with a spicy level of 6/10; I opted for the yellow curry with a spicy level of 3/10. We shared an order of their chicken fried rice and decided to make it a level 8 on their spicy level.

This place fulfilled my cravings. Their yellow curry was delicious, and it paired really well with the fried rice. I mean, anything goes with rice because rice is life. I love this little Thai restaurant! It was pretty cool they used a numeric scale for adjusting their food’s spiciness to the customer’s level. I love hot Cheetos but I can’t really tolerate spicy entrees and I tell you, the rice was burning my insides!

Aaaand that’s how Chris & I basically spent our Valentine’s Day/week this year. No fancy gifts, just good food in our bellies! ‘Til the next foodie file!

P.S. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

    Time is flying by too fast, girlfriend. When you’re making $$$, V-day has to wait! But it’s kinda good where you’re avoiding the rush too?? The food from Tahoe Joe’s looks delicious! Happy hour price is life.

    I like how the Thai Basil Restaurant didn’t skimp out on the cashews. They were GENEROUS with them!!! I’ve ordered similar before and got maybe 5 pieces at most lolol. Woah, you guys weren’t playing around with the spiciness with the chicken fried rice! Glad you both enjoyed the delicious meals! Who needs fancy gifts when there’s also ABC… Anniversaries, birthdays, and Christmas XD

    Nothing beats celebrating V-day with a good food, we do that too most of the time. Only when we can’t go out to eat hubby would give me flowers hehe. I like the look of the food at Taho Joe’s. Have a nice weekend Eena!

    I can’t believe is March already, even if weather reminds me of December or January. Now after seeing such delicious dishes I want some shrimps 😀 I wonder how spicy level 8 is 🙂

    Oh my gosh, that dip looks SO YUMMY! Ben and I do still celebrate Valentine’s Day, but it’s mainly an excuse to hit up our favorite Mexican restaurant haha. BUT, we still do manage to surprise each other with little things too, which is always fun! Gotta keep that spark going when you’re 10 years in!
    So glad you guys got to enjoy that time together!

    This looks like such a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! I love how the Thai restaurant uses a scale to rank how spicy their food is – I’m a spice addict so would totally opt for a 10 if I ever visit! Food looks absolutely delicious, particularly the cabin fries and onion straws!!

    Omg I always end up reading food posts when I’m hungry. Everything looks so delicious! (Except for the meal with the nuts in it, as I’m not a fan of nuts in my food. Though I will eat nuts by themselves). Eating delicious food is a great way to enjoy any day.
