My girl Nam just got back from SF so three of us decided to meet up at Corkbuzz for din din din ~ Guess what!!! First time we actually used YELP checkin deal and we got two free glasses of wine. hehehe *\(^_^)/* The place is cute and food was good but nothing special and memorable. NY offer so many SuPa SuPa cute and yummy foods and unfortunately this place wan’t for me and my girls. One of the best dish from our ordered was Hamachi Crudo, kumquat marmalade, basil purée for sure. I go to eat often and maybe I’m kind of jaded about restaurant….who know~ But the end of meal what is most important!? Great time with great friends and certainly this place was perfect for this night for us. I might go back to here I might not but you should definitely use YELP checkin deal for wine for sure! #DEAL

This is the closest wine bar from my clothing shop CutieRoom (located next to Gentlemen Farmer ) so I often come by for wine and a small snack after work. Jadis is reasonable and has a wide selection on their wine menu as well as serving French Tapas. The whole kitchen is behind the bar counter and they don’t use any gas appliances for cooking – pretty much just an open toaster and panini press! I don’t recommend to go here if you are expecting a hearty dinner but sometimes I will crave their Spinach Chicken Salad..it is so good, filling, and guilty free for skinny bitches (>_<)! The place is always crowded but never uncomfortably too packed (after my blog post, there is no guarantee 😉. It’s simply cozy and homey. The wine I normally order by the bottle is only $25, and by the glass $7. ”Cheers!’’
