Restaurant Tag Meme   5 comments

My dear sister Ellen just tagged me for a dining out meme.

Here are the rules:

1.  Link to name of person that tagged you.
2.  Include state and country you live in.
3.  List top 5 favorite local restaurants.
4.  Tag 5 other people and let them know they’ve been tagged.

I am putting a twist on the meme by choosing favorite restaurants from our travels.  Play the game any way you want!

1. Ellen

2. I live in the state of Washington, USA and work in the state of California, USA and we travel as a hobby!  We love to eat out!

3. Here are my top 5 or so favorite restaurants from our travels abroad.

Italy – Pizza at a sidewalk cafe in Sienna – Tuscany
This place had the best tasting, most unique pizza we have ever had! 
Do you see the egg sunny side up on that one pizza?

London – Claridges for High Tea – Better than Harrod’s by far!
They had a wonderful tea selection!

France – Maison Chardenoux in Paris – Oh so French!
We showed up at 8pm and were the first ones there. 
When we left, it was packed. We left about 10:30pm.

Greece – Gythio (a small fishing village)

A Mediterranean Sidewalk Cafe –
My first octopus and ouzo experience! OPAH!


Mexico – Two really good sunset restaurants – 
Daquari Dick’s in Puerto Vallarta and a
Brazillian BBQ place called Rio Churrascaria in Cancun

Why you go to Daquiri Dick’s at Sunset!

Honorable mentions:

Harbour View Restaurant – Sydney, Australia –
Really good food and the service was great.


Creperie Chez Suzette in Old Montreal, Quebec –
A small restaurant that served the best crepes! 


4. Since all the people I wanted to tag have been tagged by a different meme or this meme, I tag anyone who wants to play along!!
