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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Snow Flower Ice – Shaved Snow “Crumble”

September 16, 2014

The green tea snow itself was smooth and delicious, though you can find much better, creamier shaved snow in SGV. I’d even say Fluff Ice is a little better, and Class 302 just being untouchable. The addition of green tea mochi and mango popping balls made this even more flavorful. The mochi was soft and [...]

September 12, 2014

I visited Tacomiendo because I wanted tacos, plain and simple. The small taco shop had fresh tortillas, a must for legit tacos. I came here on a whim and was quite happy with my find. The tacos were delicious. The fresh made tortillas made all the difference. The lengua was tender, but just average. If [...]

Asian Night Market hosted by Chef Masaharu Morimoto was a success with plenty to eat and drink. Chef Morimoto’s dumplings were plenty. The peppery and somewhat acidic tartness was delicious on top. The dumplings seemed endless. Team Morimoto was like a well oiled machine. The dumplings just kept coming, as others’ lines just grew and [...]

The Original Pantry Cafe – Breakfast, Done

September 3, 2014

I’ll make this short and simple. I will try to do this blog post a little differently — It will all be pictures less the words. The Original Pantry has been feeding Los Angeles for a long time now. Joining the likes of Downtown eateries Philippe and Cole’s, they are a landmark. The food is [...]

N’ice Cream – Abbot Kinney’s Ice Cream, Gelato, Sorbet Shop

September 2, 2014

Nice Cream is actually a gelato and sorbet shop, not ice cream. I don’t know about you, but everything from ice cream, gelato, sorbet, soft serve, and froyo is ice cream to me. Yes, I like to generalize like that. Nice Cream opened its doors in 2008, and are dedicated to freshness and having all [...]

That is where Samosa House and Bharat Bazaar comes in. I ordered the combo plate. The pakora curry had yogurt cream with [...]

Mikawaya Mochi Ice Cream – 2 Buck Chuck

August 26, 2014

Something about mochi ice cream is so satisfying. That soft dough-like mochi on the outside, and the cold flavorful ice cream on the inside just hits the spot. Its cold, chewy, and delicious. The best part is, you don’t need a spoon — you eat it with your hands and there is no mess. Little [...]
