Shanghai Rose

I woke up back in Los Angeles this morning after being in Tucson for four months. The first thing that popped into my head was, "Where am I going to eat?"  This was serious.  I had a few spots in mind, but the bae suggested a new Dim Sum restaurant that had recently opened up in Studio City.  It was only three months old!  The other Dim Sum restaurant was 45 minutes away from us, and Shanghai Rose was only 15 minutes away.  We had to go.


The front of the restaurant

Yayyy parking!  $1.50 for the first hour, who knows after that.  We were hangry.





Shanghai Rose's owner hired 100% Hong Kong chefs to pleasure your palate.
You can see them in action with the design of an open kitchen.

Here she comes!  And literally with a snap of a finger...




The Pork Dumplings were the first thing we pulled off of the cart.  It was a very generous and juicy piece of pork.

The sticky rice was very sticky and had a nice little crunch.  Served hot and goey.  Makes for a great starter and has a sweet after-taste.
My fav were the Lobster Dumplings.  Juicy, fat pieces.





Sautéed Green Beans

Bae's fav were Hot and Spicy Calamari.  Tornadoed and crunchy with a light lime tapenade, topped with shaved jalepeño.  

Bean Curd

 

Shanghai Rose was a great experience overall.  Nice date spot! Great place to get together with a large group and just chow down on some delicious flavors in a comfortable environment.

Price for two people.  Like I said, we were hangry.


Shanghai Rose serves Dim Sum 7 days a week starting at 11:30am till 9:30pm from their Dine-In menu.  Every Saturday and Sunday you'll find Dim Sum carts up and down the aisles of the restaurant.

Belly full and very satisfied.  I will be back!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB Café Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB Café .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !

Birthday Month!

For my 30th birthday, I decided to celebrate it for the entire month of November.   Since I've reached this milestone in my life, why not spread out the celebration?  Here are highlights of my birthday month: Cake, Cake, Cake My coworker got me this lovely Guava Cake from Andrea's World of Cakes , thank you Fran! Hawaii Trip '16 My family and I were in Hawaii for a bit.  Being there for my birthday was not the primary reason though :p We had this 'ono (delicious) and authentic Hawaiian meal from Waiahole Poi Factory : Don't forget the chili water and Shoyu! There's been many poke bowl shops poppin' up in Vegas.  But none yet that I've been to can beat the OG poke bowls from Hawaii!  Pictured here are poke bowls with simply marinated raw fish and rice.  We also had some sashimi and musubis from Foodland Farms : Li Hing Mui Frost from Frostcity :                   These huge Banana Mac Nut Pancakes with Coco
