Peacock and Peahens visit Honu, Eat Thai and Pizza Moda in Berkeley

Aloha Everyone,

This morning, J.J. called alerted me that there were several partridges next to Honu. The giant birds turned out to be a young male peacock and 4 female peahens hunting for breakfast.

We've woken up to deer, squirrel, chipmunk, rabbit, wild turkey, rooster, eagle, hawk, and turkey vulture but peacocks and peahens was a first.

Our motel, Rodeway Inn is located on University Avenue within an easy walking distance to University of California at Berkeley. I wonder if this was the same streets my Father walked when he was a student at this institution.

With map and directions provided by Jeevan and Poona, we explored the neighborhood.

There are so many interesting ethnic restaurants just a step away from where we are staying.

Our lunch at Eat Thai, located on University Avenue in Berkeley, was a perfect vegetarian meal for me.

Pizza Moda is literally located just a few step away from our inn. While dishes are on more pricey side, the presentation and quality is excellent.

J.J. and I shared ribbon zucchini salad and fried calamari for appetizer and mushroom pizza.

Congratulations to the owner, Jeff Davis for creating an Italian restaurant where true food connoisseur seem to be enjoying their meal.

A lovely evening dinner in a trendy restaurant which J.J. commented that it feels like we are in an university town and I concurred.  It was a different dining adventure from our usual comfortable cozy dining room of Honu surrounded by nature.

Aloha -- Cathi
