Eggslut – Quick Lunch, Long Line

February 10, 2015

Call someone a slut, and you are asking for trouble. Take someone to Eggslut, and you are just the best friend ever. I remember having Jury Duty (the worst) and we were on our lunch break — I headed straight to the Grand Central Market. It is great to see Downtown flourish and the revival [...]

Cafe Gratitude – Vegans are People Too

February 6, 2015

Super Bowl is a day of feasting, and not in the sense of a holiday meal, but in a snacking and binge eating sense. We Americans put down nearly 30 million pounds of chips and over a billion chicken wings. A single chicken can only make four pieces of chicken wings — that calculates to [...]

Tokyo Fried Chicken Co. – I’m Guilty

February 4, 2015

It is always good to see a somewhat popular restaurant in Monterey Park that isn’t Chinese or Asian. Even though Tokyo Fried Chicken Company suggests something Asian, I still think of it as southern fried chicken. Though it may have some Japanese influences, it is all about the fried chicken here. Fried chicken was the [...]

The Golden State – Burgers and Bacon

January 25, 2015

The Golden State on Fairfax was at one point touted as having the best burgers in Los Angeles. I am a burger snob, and I can say that if the time was taken, I can one dope burger. The menu is simple: burgers, sandwiches, salads, and sides. They even have Let’s Be Frank hot dogs [...]

We are bangin’ out the new year with ramen. Noodles are a representation of long life, and is a perfect way to start off the new year. Ramen shops are expected to boom in Los Angeles for the year 2015 and Tsujita is leading them all. The shop is small, modern and quite relaxing. It’s [...]

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong – Flower Beef FTW

December 22, 2014

The acronyms AYCE and KBBQ go hand in hand, almost to the point of interchangeability. (Side note: the word “interchangeability” is the longest word used on this blog, I think.). I’m a carnivore to my core, and having all that my heart and stomach desires is welcome. For this reason alone is I think the [...]

Semi Sweet Bakery – The Crullant

November 11, 2014

Semi Sweet Bakery in Downtown is one of the many places to get cronuts in Los Angeles. Dubbed the name, “crullant”, theirs was more of a hybrid between a croissant and a French cruller. Behind Semi Sweet Bakery is Sharlena Fong, a New York based pastry chef. The cafe bakery was small, chic, and filled [...]

Saffron and Rose Ice Cream – Persian Ice Cream For All

October 30, 2014

#Icecreamtuesdays is over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ice cream anymore. The beauty of living in LA is getting to have ice cream in the fall and winter. This was my first time trying Persian ice cream, and for the most part, it was pretty awesome. Walking into Saffron and Rose Ice Cream, [...]

Library Ale House – Koreans and Grilled Onions

October 26, 2014

After a long day at Venice Beach, we decided to hit up Library Ale House. The somewhat small bar was packed with people. It was almost as small as a coffee shop, but people just stood or sat at the bar. The woodsy interior and small feel felt very “English Pub” like, but with better [...]

Angelini Osteria – The Proper Way of Turning Thirty

October 20, 2014

Every man and woman’s journey changes when they turn 30. My 30th was well received, at least better than others’. I didn’t have a mental breakdown or go skydiving to feel young again. Angelini Osteria was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday. It’s elegant, mature, and the food was quite polished — just as [...]

Superba Food + Bread – Missed My Kouign Amann

October 17, 2014

I came to Superba Food + Bread for a cup of latte and their famous Kouign Amann. I was looking forward to eating that sweet sweet, burnt sugar crusted bread with a nice cup of latte. I did get my latte, but instead of something sweet I got something savory. Sadly, they were out of [...]

Wildcraft Sourdough Pizza – Venture Into a New Dough

October 10, 2014

I came to Wildcraft Sourdough Pizza during happy hour. The place was empty and the chef was just itching to place a pizza in the oven. I liked the open flow of the restaurant. The open kitchen and friendly staff really put everything together nicely. The place looked casual enough for a small get together [...]

Churros Calientes – Dulce de Leche Please

October 1, 2014

We all know that the best churros are from Disneyland. Something about that long stick of fried dough, rolled in cinnamon and sugar is so satisfying. At Churros Calientes, they take the simple and humble churro and make it even sweeter. We ordered the churros with a drizzle of dulce de leche on top. The [...]

Chef Roy Choi owns the Line Hotel as far as eating goes. With POT, Pot Cafe, and Pot Bar, and now the newly opened Commissary, Roy Choi definitely is taking over the food scene. With the opening of the Line Hotel and POT, there was a lot of buzz. Working in Koreatown, I tend not [...]

Library Bar – Eating While Everyone Drinks

September 26, 2014

The Library bar to me seemed like a hip spot. The high reviews of Yelp and intriguing food items looked hopeful. And it’s a library? Or at least they try to make it look like one. Honestly, the place was small, dark, and the night I went, people were way too drunk. Maybe I was [...]

September 23, 2014

Summer is finally departing and we welcome fall.

We are going to be eating ice cream whether it is summer [...]

Jim Dandy – Fried Chicken and Fritters

September 19, 2014

You have fried chicken, then you have Jim Dandy. I had high hopes for Jim Dandy, and for good reason too. It’s not Church’s or Popeye’s, and it sure is not KFC. Although Church’s and Popeye’s has a special place in my heart, I have no love for KFC. Jim Dandy is on a new [...]

Sweet Rose Creamery – The Original Brentwood Country Mart

September 16, 2014

Some say that Sweet Rose Creamery has the best ice cream in LA. That may or may not be true, but they definitely have a stronghold in the ice cream game. Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan are husband and wife co-owners of Sweet Rose. They also co-own Rustic Canyon, Milo and Olive, and Huckleberry. That [...]
