Socal Revisited

NOTE: Possibly last food blog entry until I get back into the US from my tour of Asia (HK, Thailand and Vietnam). BUT! I will take plenty of food pictures because as of right now, the only thing on my mind is all the food I am going to eat and all the fruit that is going to be in season! Yip!!

Last Night’s Location: La Paella. Maybe it was because I went in with very high expectations. We got the seafood Paella but flavors WEREN’t amazing as yelp said. I expected something that needed 30 minutes to make to have an explosion of flavors. Somehow, it just tasted like minute rice quickly mixed with some seafood and sauces…

BREAKFAST: i’ve noticed that Yi Mei has been on the top 5 on LA yelp for the past few months, so we finally made it for breakfast. tasty it is. everyone in there was getting the traditional chinese breakfast – dou jiang and you tiao. so we got the dou jiang, you tiao + cong you bing and zhu rou xiao bing. all were quite tasty

Yelp (in LA) speaks the truth.

So, where have I been eating?

Chunju Han-il Kwan is know for there tasty stews and korean comfort food. ‘Tis true!! With so many yelp reviews, we finally ventured and I am a believer!!

We had a stew made with hot dog, rice cake and spam (?). sooooo good! hot and spicy and great with a side of rice. plenty of tasty banchan and we also ordered pork bulgogi and kimchee pancake. oh baby. yea. Sorry, no pictures this time. I swear to go back and take some tho…
