I finally went to Ichiza (next to China Town Plaza along Spring Mountain Rd) last night after all these years of wanting to go. I liked the atmosphere of the place, felt like I was in a little Japan. I didn't get to enjoy the rest of my stay because I got really sick and had to leave early. I didn't get the chance to try their popular Honey Toast! I'll write more when I go there again. That's a lot of beef: I tried their yellowtail sushi:
Last January I went to San Francisco, I wish I stayed there longer! (click on pictures to enlarge them) These signs took up an entire wall of the Yan Yan Chinese Restaurant on Judah St. I wish I understood it: The Crepevine Restaurant filled me up with a good breakfast, I went there twice!: My friend recommended to eat at The Stinking Rose . She read my mind because I LOVE garlicy food. I ordered the Gnocchetti with Garlic gorgonzola, asparagus & toasted pine nuts and I also ate their garlic bread: I spent the whole day at Fisherman's Wharf, it was fun getting lost there. My first stop there was at Boudin Bakery : Kara's Cupcakes at Ghirardelli Square had neat cupcake designs: Japan Town was fun, I wish it was bigger. I forgot where we ate (sorry!): Sorabol was my favorite Korean fast food place. I was sad when it closed at Boulevard Mall in Las Vegas. When I was at Westfield Mall, I was happy to see the place again: ~Danica's photos~ Crepes from Crepevine:
On Friday the 13th, I went to a birthday dinner at The House of Blues Restaurant , which serves Southern Creole-Cajun food. I've never been around this cuisine much so I had to choose wisely when I was looking at the menu. My appetite wasn't that big so I ordered the Crispy Catfish Nuggets with Sweet Potato French Fries and their World Famous Spicy Tartar Sauce: I chose wisely... The nuggets and fries weren't super greasy and the tartar sauce was a delight! And this was my friend's 'chocolately' birthday cake from Freed's Bakery :
Today I checked out Miles Bake Shop & Hawaiian Foods . Miles recently relocated to my area of town so that's convenient for me! An aunty showed my boyfriend and I some aloha spirit by hooking us up with free malasadas . Along with the free food, we bought ahi tuna poke . Both of the treats were fresh and authentic enough for me. I miss Hawaii!
