Ca'Brea - Los Angeles

I had a good time at Ca'Brea. The service was a bit slow, but good and our server answered all our questions, very helpful. The food was very good too. Me and my friend shared seafood salad, and I had seafood pasta and tiramisu. I like the atmosphere here. I'm kinda surprised that there were not many customers were dining when we were here.



Insalata Tiepida di Frutti di mare con ortaggi $15.95
fresh seafood salad of clams, shrimp, calamari, baby octopus, and mussel with vegetables and taggiasche olives, in a lemon, garlic, and Tuscan extra virgin olive oil dressing

Rigatoni alle melanzane e mozzarella $15.95

Bigoletti all' aragosta e frutti di mare $21.95
Homemade Venetian spaghetti with slipper lobster, manila clams, shrimps and blue crabs, in a light tomato sauce. Lots of seafood, tasty.

dessert menu

I always have to finish my meal with cappuccino and dessert.

Tiramisu $6.95
Lady fingers soaked in espresso coffee and layered with mascarpone cheese. Ah yes, it was the perfect ending. So good.

Hwa Sun Ji - Koreatown

This place is AWESOME. If you want the place somewhere very relaxing, with good tea and good service, this is the place for you. Love the Asian theme decor, love my rose tea, and Jun Tong Mo Deum (Korean traditional tea snacks).


I think this is Woo Jun green tea $6.99

Jun Tong Mo Deum $5.99
Traditional Korean tea snacks, goes well with tea.

Rose tea $5.5
My rose tea was served in a very small clear pot and cup, but the lady left hot water on the table so I can keep pouring for more. But not only that, when I wanted to drink more, she changed my rose tea leaves to the new one, and poured more hot water. Wow. she's such a nice lady. I like coffee better than tea, but I don't mind coming here every other day.

MyCityCuisine is currently looking for contributors

MyCityCuisine is a wiki project. Its goal is to help travelers discover the local food from around the world. Food has always been an integral part of the local culture so, naturally, tasting local food is often high on most traveler's to-do lists. However, until now, there was no single comprehensive source providing this particular information for cities around the world.

"What should I order?", an inevitable question faced by all travelers sitting in a restaurant, in a foreign country. MyCityCuisine is a project to create a free, reliable and up-to-date guide to the most original and tasty local foods from different countries of the world. This is an open project, so we encourage everyone to contribute to it.
