Bencotto Italian Kitchen - San Diego

It was my first time going to Little Italy in San Diego. It was on Friday night and also National pizza day. Every single restaurant were packed. This place was one of the very popular restaurant of all, we gave them our name, and came back in hour or so. Since we already had pizza and desserts, and we wanted to go more places after so we just shared one pasta and one appetizer. This place doesn't have pizza, so if you want pizza, go next door. They are owned by the same owner.

Food was really good, and I like the "pasta your way" concept, which you choose pasta and sauce.
Reservation is highly recommended.

Puma x Hello Kitty launch event

About 2 weeks ago, I went to Puma x Hello Kitty launch event which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Suede. I got to check out Puma x Hello Kitty collections and of course, I was here to purchase some stuff. It started at 4 pm and I got here about 5-10 minutes before 4pm. There were short line, I waited until 4pm and got inside. But there were already people inside. Everything was selling first. There were many Hello Kitty collectors.
Free cotton candy
There were some cute pink candies

Hello Kitty nail

I almost bought it but I didn't. It's $40
Since I purchased shoes, I got some free Hello Kitty cookies and macarons from Hello Kitty food truck. Macarons were so good.

I asked for my size of the shoes and they told me they don't have my size anymore. I just don't get it. I got here on time and they don't have my size anymore..???? Anyway, they gave me junior size shoes and I tried on, and it actually fits fine so I bought it. I don't wear red but this one is actually very cute and I like it.

I recently attended to Japanese food festival media preview event that happened at Sushi chef institute in Torrance. I got to try fresh sushi, sashimi, and other Japanese food such as takoyaki, gyoza, karaage, okonomiyai, etc, and of course, sake. They also had tuna cutting show.
