I always end up eating Asian more times than not, but this time we tried completely different. Argentinian food! Apparently, it can be meat galore! We ordered two orders of the grilled meat platter (Parrillada) and various empanadas (spinach, chorizo and chicken).

I’m not a big meat eater, but I must say that all the meats were juicy and tender. The mini charcoal grill made the experience even more novel. All the empanadas were very good, but my favorite was the chicken. (Side note: I enjoyed it so much that I ordered two more chicken empanadas to go for my lunch the next day. With a quick 1 min 45 sec zap in the microwave, I had a hearty lunch. =)

Conclusion: Brazilian BBQ has some competition.

Mom & Pop Donuts

Ronald’s Donuts has been on my list of to try for about 3 years, but somehow I have never made it there. The stars were aligned recently, and we were in the neighborhood to drop by. So many to choose from, I was like a kid in a candy store. I managed to put my tongue back in my mouth and picked out a half dozen assortment of donuts.

The assortment was delicious. These were not skinny like your Krispy Kreme variety. These were fluffy pieces of dreaminess. [see picture]

The bonus is that it’s locally owned, not a major giant, so you get kind, warm and inviting service. Goodbye Krispy Kreme. Helloooo Ronald’s Donuts!

p.s. Word on the street is that all donuts are vegan except for the cake donuts.

I am happy that there is another ramen option other than the more busy Monta Ramen in the Chinatown area. I’ve been a couple times and the broth isn’t as intense as Monta Ramen. The noodles seem thicker, which is good for me because I like thick and chewy noodles. The chashu is just as tasty and fatty-licious.

Would you say I like Sora Ramen more? I would just say it’s different. Like comparing apples and oranges and like comparing ramen from different areas in Japan.

Conclusion: Delicious Ramen. Give it a try.

Finally, we have a restaurant that specializes in cold soba and udon. Hooray for Vegas. Being the noodle whore that I am, I had high expectations from tasting all the delicious noodle restaurants in Torrance, CA.

I-Naba’s cold soba and cold udon noodles brought just the right amount of chewiness. The mild dipping sauce was the perfect compliment to warm Las Vegas weather.

Conclusion: Looking to slurp up refreshing cold noodles? Try I-Naba
