A look back at 2013

As the year is about to close, here's a look back at some of my favorite memories from 2013.  It was a year filled with my old favorite cities, with new favorite cities, with amazing bites and sips, and with meeting some of the best chefs in the world.  What a year!

I can't wait to see what 2014 will have to offer...

Started the year with a beach resort vacation in Bohol

Patatas bravas in Hong Kong's ViCool.  From the mastermind of Spain's Sergi Arola

A memorable birthday meal at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Hong Kong.  Lobster and uni - what more can a girl ask for?

Walked through the future in Singapore's Garden by the Bay

Lined up for Thomas Keller's fried chicken at Addendum

Indulged in Chris Cosentino's offal meal filled with originality and creativity.  Uni and Iberico lard together??  Genuis.

Throwback to my college days: Chicken wings and a hearty ale.

Rediscovered the new Tokyo Station.  The eating is endless down there, and it's complete with a Ramen Street.

Tempura is really best eaten in Japan, at the bar

A yakitori meal for the books in Tokyo's Birdland

Found a slice of heaven in my new favorite city, San Sebastian.

Met Elena Arzak during our meal at Arzak in San Sebastian

Behind the scenes experience at Mugaritz

Toured La Rioja wine country!

Met the incredicle Albert Adriá in Tickets in Barcelona

A few days away in the gorgeous island of Mallorca

Jamón, jamón, and even more jamón in Jabugo
