Veggie Grill at The Grove, the original farmer's market

I had a birthday offer for a free meal here.I wasn't sure which burger to get so I asked to the cashier person  and he said get this Santa Fe crispy chicken, so that's what I got. I really enjoyed my sandwich. It's healthy yet tasty. And I don't feel guilty!
















Santa Fe Crispy Chickin' with chili $8.95
Crispy fried chillin' chickin', lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, southwestern spiced vegan mayo







































Healthy chili. To me, it was more like baked beans

cooking class with Chef di cuisine Ian Gresik at Drago Centro in Downtown, L.A 1.25.2012.

Well, I was very lucky. I retweeted on twitter and I won cooking class for two with Chef di cuisine Ian Gresik at Drago Centro ( Yay! That's like $55 a person). There were about 40 people attended. We all got to sample three different pastas, some wine and bread sticks. The chef made egg pasta from scratch and also three different pasta sauce.

I've dine at Drago Centro before and I loved it. So I was very excited to be here again, for the cooking class.

CLICK HERE for pics from 2010.



















































Cooking class menu






































fettuccine with bolognese sauce with cheese












I asked for no cheese. Oh my.. bolognese was so tasty, so good. I wish I had a recipe for the sauce.



























Spaghetti with pesto sauce, fried tomato skin on top. Of course no cheese on mine and they remember it!









Agnolotti with ricotta filling
I was worried because I don't like cheese. This ravioli is filled with all cheese. But I ate it. It was actually good.









































We got some dough to take it home with, so I made pasta and ravioli. Nothing better than using fresh pasta.

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar - Little Tokyo

Yes, it's finally open in Little Tokyo. Kula Kaiten sushi restaurant. Almost all plates are $2 each. Everything in the picture below are $2 each. The food was fine for the money. This place is so much better than Fat Fish in Koreatown. The best thing about Kaiten sushi is that you don't have to wait for the food, you sit down, you grab what you wanna eat.



























menu












































Albacore, red snapper, beef,..


























Crispy tuna, spicy tuna, egg, ..












Sunomono












I think it's salmon yukke












spicy crunchy salmon







































Inari, gyoza, Asahi beer, ..
