If you can’t find me in LA, you can find me in the Bay @ Sophie’s! Unlike their soggy and bleh counterparts, Sophie’s has the perfect crepes that are slightly crispy around the edges. My favorite is the Japanese crepe, which has green tea gelato, red bean, and matcha sauce to top it off. My 2nd favorite is the strawberry, banana, and nutella crepe. And, last but not least, they can whip up a wide variety of savory crepes as well.
When I’m out and about traveling, I love to find unique gift items at the local establishments. I first discovered these Zuny guys at Japan Town (San Francisco) inside the Kinokuniya bookstore window display. They are leather animals that can be used as bookends, door stoppers, or simply as decoration for your living quarters. I think they are sooo cute!
