My dear friend Michelle, who blogs at Foodie is the New Forty and I try to meet twice or thrice a month to have dinner and to blog. The formula for our blogging dates includes picking a casual place for dinner and then migrating to a coffee shop to work on our laptops. Our significant others are welcomed to join for either or both parts of the night. Sugarface hadn’t been able to join us for the last few months so our last blogging date was especially nice when he joined us for the first time in a while.

What I love about our foursome is how easily it is dissolve into unrestrained laughs and how uncanny our commonalities feel, which coincidentally was represented by what we ordered when we tried out Bun Belly a few weeks ago. We each ordered the Bun Belly Egg Noodle bowl because we all wanted pork belly and noodles. We split the Salt and Pepper Shrimp and then all tucked into our own bowls of noodles and pork belly. Pork belly at Bun Belly to go with our belly laughs.

We much liked our experience at Bun Belly and I’m going to have to remember to suggest it again so that we can try more of their contemporary Vietnamese menu. I see that they have Vietnamese crepes which I had promised to make for Michelle and Chris and have yet to make good on my promise!
