THIS was the reason I was too full to buy a Turducken sandwich to go the other day. The Thanksgiving Turkey Burger is this months Burger of the Month at @theoinkster. I was DEFINITELY in a turkey coma after killing this burger as well.
A HUGE thank you to @merkow for having us by for lunch for the ONE DAY ONLY return of the Turducken burger/sammy at @theoinkster yesterday! This is BY FAR, my favorite non red meat burger/sammy that they have ever made. And thank you for this amazing pic, since my fatass dove right into it! My only regret was not buying one to go for later. I was just soooo full…
This place is special 🌲
This one goes out to @TrickDogBar’s Chicken TrickNuggets w/ Honey Mustard, Sweet & Sour, & BBQ Sauces.
Sunrise at Hot Creek Geological Site
Hot Creek site is a place where ice cold Mammoth Creek reaches springs of water heated by the Inyo Dome magma that lies three miles below the surface.
Though previously swimming was allowed, starting from 2006 it was prohibited. Earthquakes can cause sudden geyser eruptions, and overnight appearances of new hot springs at Hot Creek and water temperatures can change rapidly.

Officially an 😏🍳🥚This was messy and delicious! I’m in love 🤤
Rating: 10/10 📍Egg Slut — Los Angeles, CA
Three years in, @liholihoyachtclub is still one of the hottest tables in town – and one of my favorite restaurants in SF. NO ONE is serving up Hawaiian fusion and flavor like these guys; These Beef Tongue Poppyseed Buns with Kimchee and Scallions are just one of dozens of inventive dishes on the menu. The restaurant fills up fast (we waited 2 hours as a walk-in – on a MONDAY 😱😱) but never fear: hit up their secret tiki lounge @louiesgengenroom for a cocktail while you wait!
👆🏻👆🏻 Perfect reward after a long day hiking around Golden Gate Park… ! Glad I got to try SF’s fast-casual Greek spot @souvlasf; Their Roasted Lamb Gyro with harissa-spiked yogurt, feta, cucumber & radish hit the spot, and I died over their Frozen Greek Yogurt (with honey syrup & freakin’ BAKLAVA CRUMBLES 💯💯💯). More on my Insta story!

I’ve had some dear friends in town this week from LA, which of course had me reminiscing on all things West Coast. This brunch from @honeyhi was a highlight from my last trip: bowls of perfect local produce and ALL 👏🏻 THE 👏🏻 PROTEIN (organic bacon, eggs, grass-fed steak). Can y’all open here? Please?
As it is currently monsooning and I just tripped over my blazing hot flat iron (🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️), I am requesting a Universal do-over and for this to be airlifted to my apartment. Is that too much to ask?? (Lemon, almond and ricotta cake and Turmeric Tonic from @sqirlla). .
The feeling when you finally get the perfect pic 😍
Any excuse to drool over a spread of @homestate breakfast tacos! Luckily, it’s 😏 🌮🙌🏻
Restaurant month is still going strong!
Enjoy 3 courses for only $30 in our steakhouse or copper cafe till February 2nd. Seating begins at 5pm.
NYC snow is so magical… Until it swiftly turns into slush 😂. Wishing I could face-plant into this sorrel pesto rice bowl right about now… What dishes are you dreaming about (or making) today?!
All the leaves are…well not all brown actually. Tasting at Lynmar with @zsaltzberg and co 🍷
Everyone gets the chance to be alive, but not everyone chooses to live!
Made the trek to Artist Point @yosemitenps on the abandoned stagecoach road above Wawona Tunnel.
