Hamburger Hamlet - Sherman Oaks

Thanks to, it was great tasting event. I had a great time at Hamburger Hamlet. Their menu is huge, they have all the America's favorite foods, such as burgers, steaks, milkshakes, eggs, sandwiches, nachos, wings, fish, spaghetti, etc, etc.. They also have Happy Hour, they are offering $1 oysters, $3-$5 alcohol drinks, and appetizers for around $5.

I haven't had split pea soup for so long, I had to try it when I saw it on the menu. It also came with cornbread. It was delicious.

This is their famous lobster bisque
Zucchini zircles
It's one of their popular appetizer. Hand-cut and golden fried in italian bread crumbs
Golden fried chicken wings
Seasoned artichoke hearts. There were more than 3 pieces. Everyone ate before I take pics.

Gong Cha - Koreatown

It's been a month since they opened in Ktown. I' always get the same drink, which is Earl Grey milk tea with 3J. It comes with 3 toppings! It's a good deal, I think. Also you get to choose sugar level and ice level. I always get no sugar but it still sweet enough for me.I wish I could get nonfat milk but I think they said milk tea is pre-made so I can't do or they don't have non-fat milk. But for overall, I like this place.

Earl Grey milk tea with 3J (M) $4
It comes with pearl, pudding, and Herbal jelly. This is the one I received on the first day. As you can see, I couldn't tell if there was pudding in it or not. And it did have pudding in it, but very small amount.
A week later, I went back and I got the same drink again. It seems like I got more toppings in it. I was happy.

Kung Fu Tea - Koreatown

Kung Fu Teajust opened in Koreatown. They are having buy 1 get 1 free (selected drinks) deal until 3/19. I ordered 2 kung Fu bubble milk tea with boba, and pudding. The taste was just ok, unfortunately, it'll be my first time and last time coming here. In fact, I throw away my second drink after I had few sips. The stuff were nice, but they seems to not know what they are doing or don't have knowledge about the menu yet. 
Anyways, I got bubble milk tea. I ordered bubble milk tea and it doesn't comes with bubble. I was like... what a f***?? I have to pay extra to get boba in my bubble milk tea? Isn't that supposed to come with it if it's bubble milk tea? Am I wrong? When I asked them "what is green/red wow milk?" 
They said basically it's milk. And of course it also doesn't comes with toppings, you have to pay extra if you want toppings. Then what's the different between red and green wow milk? On the website, it says red is red bean toppings, and green is mung bean toppings. So you'd think it comes with it, right? 
Anyways, it's not the place for me. Pretty much every drink they make here are using powders, nothing real stuff.

KF bubble milk tea (M) $3.25 + boba $0.50 + pudding $0.50 =$4.25
