Entertaining and XBB

I love entertaining at our home so of course I had my family over for some appetizers.  We sat and caught up a while and then headed out to a neighborhood restaurant called Xiao Bao Biscuit (XBB).  XBB is located at 224 Rutledge Avenue at the corner of Spring Street. 

We chowed on some Bucherondin cheese, a creamy, mildly tangy goat cheese....

We devoured this smoked salmon with fresh squeezed lemon juice and more goat cheese. 

Our wine of choice was this Cotes-Du-Rhone Grenache.

 Mark sets the tone with some Louis Prima on the Apple TV.

XBB is just 2 blocks from our home so we headed over by foot.  (Keep in mind XBB is not open on Sundays.)  Look at what a great job they did when they turned this old gas station into a fun restaurant.

I indulged in the cabbage pancake (Okonomiyaki as it is called on the menu).

This is the fish dinner called Cha Ca Hanoi.  You can see more food pictures on XBB's website.
