Shabu, 3 amigos, and a couple of bottles of sake later.

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…

Scuba Steve!


Tender Greens is expanding!

It’s totally like a dream come true. My #1 spot in DT Culver City is Tender Greens, because their salads are simple, and packed with flavor. I just found out today, that they are opening up their 4th location in Hollywood (Sunset & Vine)!

Salads use to be a thing for vegetarians and the typical lunch fare, but Tender Greens is the perfect choice for dinner as well. Filled with delectable salad choices like the “simple salad” spinach, goat cheese, toasted hazelnuts, with a light vinaigrette, you definitely will have a tough choice deciding among the other menu offerings.

If I salad simply isn’t enough, feel free to add a side of seared ahi, grilled chicken, grilled flank steak, mashed potatoes, tomato basil soup, or grilled veggies.

Lemonade (Good Eats LA)

Woke up to a beautiful sunny day and decided to hit the roads with JP to find some lunch.

1 stop: Farmer’s Market for some fresh veggies & fruit for the week.

2 stop: Lemonade, for some lunch & of course some lemonade!

After scoping out Yelp for the reviews, we decided to go to Lemonade for a quick lunch on the way back home. This cafeteria-ish place was packed to the brim! Good food selection and good pricing as well.

For lunch, we had the strawberry spinach salad, cucumber cantaloupe with prosciutto salad, then cous cous with wild mushrooms (w/parmesan & truffle oil), and a side of ahi tuna with a citrus vinaigrette.

For all of the general side items, you can do the following combos:

1 item: $4.00
2 items: $7.50
3 items: okay, i forgot!!!

Then, all lemonades are $2.75. So far, my favs are: Peach Ginger Lemonade & Blueberry Mint Lemon Lemonade.
