Spicy Tuna Poke at Suburbia

September 5, 2016

Sisterly bonding is always a good time. Never out of things to judge, I mean, talk about. She truly is one of my favorite people in this world – there aren’t many.

We finally made it to Suburbia in Redondo Beach, CA. We shared the Pao de Queijo (dreamy Brazilian cheese bread) and I had the spicy tuna poke (delicious, but I’m also not the best poke judge yet).

Chicken Shawarma at Hummus Bar Express

September 2, 2016

If you don’t know, well, I’m a big chicken shawarma snob and this place hit high marks. That’s 10 ounces of shawarma! And that bread? Laffa, made at the restaurant. Divine. Like an edible pillow. If you’re ever in Santa Monica, and strolling through the Third Street Promenade, stop in here if not only to jump into a Laffa pillow.

Los Angeles Spots: LA Ice Cream Lab

August 16, 2016

I hadn’t been to Little Tokyo in forever and LA Ice Cream Lab happened to be next door to Spitz – it was meant to be, obviously. Every ice cream is made to order and once I saw the Salt Lick Caramel Crunch I had to get it. At first I tried to see if I can taste a sample because I often find that treats that claim to be “salted caramel” are just caramel with little to no salt and just use “salted” as part of a marketing ploy to reel people in since it’s a “popular” flavor these days. End rant.

I went ahead and ordered it anyhow. It was just as delicious as it looks with legitimate chunks of pretzel throughout.
