If you follow me on instagram, you know that me and my bf are quite enthusiasts when it comes to food! We love trying new places and couldn't be more excited to find that the popular Luckyrice Asian Food + Cocktail Festival from NYC is making its San Francisco debut on September 6th !! We were invited by Bombay Sapphire East to attend a private party at Hakkasan to celebrate the launch of the festival in San Francisco for the first time this year. Tickets for the SF festival will go on sale for the public on July 3. Chef Morimoto will be there and tasting menu is from the top restaurants in SF! If you're planning to attend, please let me know because I'd love to meet fellow readers and food enthusiasts!
We enjoyed Hors d'oeuvres by Hakkassan and endless cocktails supplied by Bombay Sapphire East. I don't remember much about the food besides the juicy crab dumplings. The cocktails were intensely yummy and I eagerly sipped a few too many and ended up waking up with a headache the next morning! Heehee! ;)
Below: On the left is my favorite Bombay cocktail called the Corpse Reviver which was on the sweeter side with fruity and floral notes. On the right is my bf's favorite called Snake in the Glass, which had a higher alcohol content with notes of cinnamon and mandarin spiced tea.
This is what I wore to the event and it's a DIY dress made with a $2 scrap fabric (found at my local fabric store!). I couldn't believe my eyes because fabric with this beautiful embroidered edge can run upwards of $25-50 per yard. I asked the associate why the fabric was so cheap and she said there's a little dirt stain on the wrong side of the fabric, which I honestly didn't even notice. I love finding good deals!!

Lastly, if anyone has attended the Luckyrice festival prior years (in other cities), please let me know how you enjoyed the food and cocktails!
