Scoops Westside – Farewell to Summer

September 23, 2014

Summer is finally departing and we welcome fall. This doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ice cream anymore, right? #icecreamtuesdays may be gone for now, but Los Angeles residents will still flock to ice cream shops. I mean, it is Los Angeles after all. 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.

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 [...]

Tacomiendo – Lengua Everything

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 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 [...]

Samosa House and Bharat Bazaar – Indian Vegetarian Cuisine

August 29, 2014

There are times when your body needs a refresh. I had all the intentions of living up to my carnivorous nature, but sometimes, one just needs to give the delicious meat a rest. 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 [...]

Public School 612 – Downtown’s School Themed Gastropub

August 20, 2014

Themed restaurants are cheesy. Public School is literally a school themed restaurant/gastropub. They have composition notebook lookalike menu and a clipboard with the beer menu. Other than that, the restaurant decor is pretty much like any other. What I don’t get is why the theme? I guess it’s a good thing that the “school” theme [...]

Playa Provisions definitely has an identity crisis. The restaurant is separated into 4 different sections — Dockside, Grain, Small Batch, and King Beach. Dockside is a high end dining space for seafood. Grain is a back room whiskey bar. Small Bach is their ice cream shop. King Beach is their casual breakfast and lunch spot. [...]

Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air – A Walk in the Garden and All is Well

August 15, 2014

Every time I drive near Beverly Hills, I always yearn to live in this neighborhood — it is the perfect neighborhood. You imagine having that large house with the gated parking lot. Of course you have a nice Ferrari in the front to go along with your other expensive cars. The best part? You have [...]

I made reservations here through Open Table four our anniversary. The earliest slot was for 9PM, and it was for DineLA, so I took it. Getting to the actually restaurant is a mission.

Carmela Ice Cream – Girls Smell Like Roses, Guys Smell Like Salted Caramel

August 5, 2014

Walking around the Beverly Grove area after an early dinner, we were in the mood for some ice cream. We could have easily went to Sweet Rose Creamery and be happy. We decided to go to Carmela Ice Cream. It really came down to, try something I haven’t had yet, or something I know is [...]

Heywood: A Grilled Cheese Shoppe – Next Level Bread and Cheese

August 3, 2014

Gourmet grilled cheese? Is that a real thing or something hipsters made up? Just give me some white bread and Kraft American cheese, grill that with some butter and I’m happy. Heywood takes the grilled cheese to a new level indeed. I’m just not quite convinced yet. Yeah, I suppose you can use artisanal cheeses [...]

Pizza Rev – El Segundo Lets You Add on the Toppings

July 30, 2014

The build your own pizza fad is he re to stay. An original fan of Pieology ever since it opened in Fullerton, I feel like I was an early adopter of the build your own pizza thing. Pizza Rev in El Segundo seemed to be pretty much the same thing. You choose your dough, sauce, [...]

July 25, 2014

I have been on a burger craze these few days — more like weeks. I’ve been ordering the burger everywhere and anywhere I go. When it came to ordering the fried chicken or the PCB at Plan Check, I chose the burger. I know they were known for their fried chicken, but the power of [...]

Honeymee – Keepin’ it Real

July 22, 2014

The pictures of Honeymee looked so good. The pure white soft serve topped with a block of yellow honeycomb was so (for a lack of better words) pretty. The intrigue of this “pure” ice cream and honeycomb was what got me here. Situated in the old Brown Derby Plaza, this would probably be a perfect [...]
