The usual trio – [resident photographer, simon] [resident analyst/thinker and event coordinator for this adventure, benny] [resident wannabe food critic, michelle]. on a beautiful sunny california day….
The day started off with the following deliciousness of Roscoe’s chicken and waffles. The boys took on a quarter chicken and two waffles, while i paced myself and only took on 1 leg, 1 waffle and 1 biscuit.
5006 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles CA 91770
CONCLUSION: chicken good, waffle good, in combination pretty good. so good that we’ll go back? *shrug* good to try at least once
After “exercise” at D&B’s (shooting hoops, wannabe ddr game Stomp, and extreme car racing), we went to Nem Nuong Ninh Hoi for the following deliciousness. This bun beo was a little different than usual – it came with a flavorful baby crouton like bit)
The goi coun was really yummy. we got the one with nem and a very crunchy and addicting piece of fried shrimp to give a crunch with every bite and and orangy-looking sauce (yet to figure out its consistency)
Nem Nuong Ninh Hoi
9016 Mission Dr
Rosemead CA 91770
CONCLUSION: I’ll soooooooo go back. got to try the bun bo hue next
After wandering around like high schoolers with nothing to do but loiter in monterey park because there is nothing else to do but eat or drink and going to three 99 ranches on the hunt for gu dao iced green tea, we head over to Little Fat Sheep. the fish balls filled with meat, pig blood rice cakes and egg wrapped dumplings are a must try.
120 South Atlantic Blvd
Monterey Park CA 91754
CONCLUSION: I favor this over the more americanized Jazz Cat. at little fat sheep you can order more variety and share it with a yummy slightly herbal-ish broth. (p.s. 10/17/12 – After driving past this summer, we believe the owners have changed and it is no longer called Little Fat Sheep. Sad Face.)
Oh… we’re not done, yet. We ended the day with this refreshing concoction at Shau Mei. for only $3.95, you get to choose 4 sides. in this case – oatmeal, mochi balls, grass jelly and mango…
104 N Garfield Ave
Monterey Park CA 91754
CONCLUSION: no doubt… we always go back here.
THE END. tho… we almost went next door to Phoenix.
Tune in for more food adventures after my boards in two weeks. Addresses of restaurants given upon request… ha ha…
