Here's the regular menu

First, this was served with hot tea.

lunch special comes with soup of the day. I think it was sweet and sour soup.

I'm not sure exactly what's in it, but it's good. Oh, but it was just a little bit too sour.

This is #13, Spicy hot egg plant. $4.95.
Look how greasy it is. It's really tasty.

This is #5, House special on rice (with gravy) $4.95

This was good, but also the gravy was kinda similar to their sweet and sour soup.

Both dishes were pretty big portion, I had leftover for next day.
Total: $9.90 + tax $0.97 = $10.87.

Fish Tail Seafood Market & Grill - Valencia, CA (2)

This was the second time eating at Fish Tail Grill in Valencia. This was back in February. I liked food here so much, so I decided to try some new items. So I got Mahi Mahi as a plate, and seabass as a sandwich. You can order your fish as sandwich, bowl, or plate.

CLICK HERE for pics from my first time visit.

Mahi Mahi plate $14.95

fish, grilled vegetables, corn, and rice

Now, the taste was very good, yes, everything was delicious. They actually grill it after you placed your order. BUT this tiny piece of fish and corn and rice and salad costs $15!? That's waaaay toooo much!

salad, comes with Mahi Mahi, with Asian dressing

Chilean Seabass sandwich $9.95

It comes with Asian coleslaw

The fish was very thin and tiny, but again, my sandwich was delicious. And this place use real fish (No fake fish like some other places).

Reggae Chicken Food Truck

Reggae Chicken Jamaican Jerk Chicken Food Truck. There were some people waiting for their food, but no line. But I had to wait about 15 min to get my burrito.


The Marley Burrito $6

with jerk chicken, reggae rice, cilantro, red onion, plantain

Can you see plantain? That's so unusual, right? But it's actually good. I like this burrito. And the best part is no cheese in it! My burrito was very tasty.

I saw some guys were eating chicken plate (chicken pieces on top of rice) and they look pretty big portion and smelled good.

Here's some pics from Farmers Market

Fast food in Japan - McDonald's and Mister Donut

Here's the food from McDonald's in Japan.

fries, teriyaki burger, shaka shaka chicken, and bacon potato pie.

Teriyaki Mcburger 270yen (about USD $3)

It's quite tasty.

Shaka Shaka Chicken 100yen (about USD $1)
This is before I shake it. You shake chicken in a bag to coat chicken with powder. Your choice of cheese, lemon or black pepper flavor.

Bacon potato pie 120yen

tastes like Japanese cream stew. pretty good.

Next is Mister Donut. I've been wanted to eat for last 10 years. I was here when they were having sale. Most donuts were 100yen (about USD$1). There were not so many donuts left.

100 yen each (USD $1), except Mont Blanc.

cute box

Flower Mont Blanc 147yen (about USD $1.5)

Coconut chocolate. You don't like coconuts? Well, try this donut. You're gonna like it. This coconut is not so sweet like the ones you get in America.

It's chewy and I just like the texture.
