There’s a new kid on the block, and it’s Mendocino Farms from the Bay Area. This lil joint has plenty of specialty sandwiches and salads to choose from. They use local and sustainable farm fresh ingredients. Woohoo!
JP had their famous Chicken Curry sandwich, on a sweet hazel nut bread:
And, I had the Tuna Melt that is made from white albacore and no mayo. Hooray!
Can’t forget the side of pickles, for .50 cents!
Our little doggy Fuego came along too.
And, we dined outside in this comfy courtyard area in the front. They even had really cute astro turf benches.
I swear, the line over @ Pinks is always wrapped around the freggin’ building. What do they put in those hot dogs? Do they sprinkle a lil Hollywood magic in there? haha.
On Mother’s Day, I planned a field trip to the Griffith Observatory for my Mom & JP. It was a beautiful sunny day, but a lil bit windy when we got to the top. Here are some highlights of the trip.
Here’s the beautiful Griffith Observatory:
If you look closely, you can see downtown LA!
Oh yes, and the fox that tried to sneak up behind our car. Errrrr.
Telescopes everywhere! Just pay .50 cents, and you can be a peeping tom too. hahaha
A nice outdoors cafe area to relax…
Here’s a nice view of the HOLLYWOOD sign.
On the way down to our car, we saw one of the old school Helms Bakery (from Culver City) trucks. Too cool!
We also saw the hiking trail for Mt. Hollywood. I wonder if it will go straight to the Hollywood sign.
Here’s a pic of area leading up to the Griffith Observatory…
I loooove Shabu, especially when I’m accompanied by some awesome friends. Last week, the 3 amigos headed out to Cali Shabu for some good times. For some reason, the sake was flowing all night long. Everything was perfect, except for my SAD (like SUPER SAD) mushrooms. Have a look for yourself:
It’s like, they are doing some kind of u-turn. They looked so sad, I decided to not eat them. Lame! Anyways, here are some goofy photos of mi amigos.
That’s Dizzle, looking like a pseudo walrus…and then there’s…
Feast your eyes on this drink called, Roaring Lion. Hmmm, pretty sneaky. The name is totally ripping off the “Red Bull” concept. Hmph! I don’t drink energy drinks, so they can name is Green Donkey for all I care. Just thought it was silly.
Ah, it’s the sushi pillow @ Steve’s office. I’ll have to sneak it out of there next time. For now, you’re safe sushi! Muahahah
