Drago Centro

Located in Downtown LA with an impressive wine collection. I went for the DineLA experience and couldn’t resist their menu degustazione (six course tasting menu). Some of my favorites? The cod served with a balsamic reduction. Duck breast w/ generous portions of truffle atop a creamy bed of polenta. A savory stew that had to…

The Open Door

Monterey Park’s own izakaya spot. Opened by two friends from the South Bay that wanted to share their passion for Asian fusion. Menu samplings: albacore tuna sashimi, mini burgers w/ a fantastic reduction, and potato salad w/ fresh made potato chips. Think Asian tapas. I hesitate to share that they have a happy hour Tuesdays…

Sanuki Udon

新光三越的美食地下街已經吃膩了,走到信義華納威秀二樓的美食街吃讚歧烏龍麵。 台灣開了很多拉麵店,唯獨烏龍麵店很少。想起以前我在日本住的時候,午餐最常在學校食堂吃一碗日幣130元的わかめうどん(海帶芽烏龍麵),次貴一點的就是きつねうどん(豆腐皮烏龍麵)。之後好像我也很少在其他地方吃到道地的烏龍麵了。 店內陳設 我點的天婦羅烏龍湯麵,230元 天婦羅炸的外皮酥酥脆脆的,真的是好吃到我要流眼淚了! 蔬菜天婦羅,$100 老公點的陽春烏龍麵:腐皮烏龍湯麵,$100 這家烏龍麵好吃的地方有: 湯頭甘甜鮮美(雖然喝到最後幾口,我竟然覺得太鹹?!這樣好像不太對勁) 手工烏龍麵很實在,有彈性,不是我在台北一些餐廳吃的那種略帶透明的烏龍麵條 一片片滷的很入味的白蘿蔔切片,就好像是在吃關東煮的大根似的!愛吃關東煮白蘿蔔的我,吃到這白蘿蔔切片也快要掉眼淚了! 另,那豆腐皮也很夠味,如同是稻香壽司的豆腐皮,加了糖的滋味真是回味無窮。(不過吃到第二片可能就會覺得太甜了些) 除了烏龍湯麵,他還有各式各樣的烏龍麵,涼拌加醬的、冷麵、小火鍋,我滿想下次再來吃一次!

Japanese Tapas – Musha

Musha is one of the finest Japanese restaurants in Southern California. I have couple of friends that swear by it. This izakaya style restaurant features some of the best presentation around. The pork belly is probably the most memorable dish that I had. But, of course, there were others. The pork belly was tender and…

Nathan’s Famous
