Wine/Sushi Night at Tavern Wine Bar IMG00119.jpg


Fabulous fun night out at The Tavern at Bown Crossing Wine Market.

Wine and sushi.
Usually the pairing that gives me fits.

But the owners did a great job and showcased how wines can both complement and elevate food.
On the plate and in the glass:
- Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco w/a Saki Make Roll w/salmon, avocado and cucumber
- Seven Hills Viognier w/shrimp roll featuring mango,roasted red pepper, fresh basil topped w/ebi, avocado, toasted coconut scallion and lemon aioli (my fav of the night – paired beautifully w/the Viognier
- Seven Hills Riesling w/ Special K Roll consisting of crab, cucumber topped w/seared tuna and spicy aioli
- Woop Woop Shiraz w/Unagi Maki featuring eel, cucumber and eel sauce. (Finally – a pairing w/red? Had no idea!)
- Adami Garbel Prosecco w/Strawberry Roll. Crazy good soy wrap w/tuna, strawberries, cream cheese and basel
Well worth the journey to SE Boise. Fun cozy wine bar w/cool atmosphere and event. (Though I appreciate their great selection of Washington/WallaWalla wines – where are the Idaho wines?!!) Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

My first blog post was Best Boise Breakfasts Now that I’ve started my own foodie worship site thought it might be worth sharing the breakfast love again.

(Since I wrote this I’ve fallen in love with the sweet & spicy Bristol Bacon cooked up by Chef Dustin Bristol at Brick 29 in Nampa. So that gets added as ‘Guilty Pleasure’ Breakfast item.) Here is the start of the post… take the jump and see if you agree, disagree or having something that I may have left out!

Lately, I’ve been focused on breakfast – the meal that starts off your day on the right, or wrong, foot. There are a slew of great breakfast spots in Boise as any native will tell you. But if you felt like doing a tour of breakfast locales while in town, or embarking on a progressive breakfast across town – here are my recommendations of the must-stops…
