Dog Haus - Pasadena

Thanks to Groupon. I had free $5 credit, and I got $10 of the food for $5 deal a while ago. That means $10 of free food! I ended up paying $1.90 but hey, I got all the food for under $2? Great!

I ordered corn dog, slider and hot dogs. Yes, that's all for me. I ate all. Everything was delicious and the workers were friendly. I like their $1.50 sliders and slingers. It's perfect for someone like me, who doesn't wanna eat too much or just wanna try little bit of everything.


Look all those food! As always, I got everything with no cheese and easy mayo.

Burger slider $1.50
Angus beef, caramelized onions, mayo

Corn dog slinger $1.50
To me, it look like burned. It was very black. But I ate it anyway. I still liked it.

Hot dog slinger $1.50
All-beef mini dog, caramelized onions, mayo

Sooo Cali $5.95 + $0.50 (veggie dog)
Arugula, sliced tomatoes, crispy onions,spicy basil aioli avocado

I got my hot dog with veggie dog. It was difficult to eat. I believe they use Hawaiian Rolls for all their dogs, so of course, the bread was delicious. The hot dog was good, but I don't think I'm getting it again. To me, it didn't match well with avocado and veggie dog and the sauce.

The Lobby Thai cafe in Thai town

I didn't know until recently, I found the Thai cafe in Thai town! Open late and they have some unusual items on the menu, like Toasted bread I got. The food and drinks are not the best, in fact, they are just ok, but I'm going back and try their pink milk and other flavors of the toasted bread next time.

I was asking about some of their cupcakes, but the cashier girls barely speak English.


cookies and brownie

Green tea smoothie $4.75, and Iced latte, I think. My friends ordered but they didn't like it. They said too sweet.

And this is my order. Toasted bread with Thai tea, and spicy Thai jam with mince sweet pork $3.25
Yes, you get two toasted bread, and you can choose both different toppings.

Jameson brown coffee roasters - Pasadena

I'm glad that I found this place.On my way home, I was browsing yelp to see if there are any other place I wanna stop by and I found this coffee place.

Cafe latte (S) $3.43 ($3.15 + tax $0.28)
My small latte wasn't really small, it was more like medium size to me. It was just tasty and I usually add raw sugar but I didn't need to do that.

It's big, enough for 3-4 people.

So good. Really nice peach fragrance.

My new favorite kitchen scale - Cuissential SlickScale

I received this awesome kitchen scale recently and I absolutely love it so I thought I should share this with my readers. It's really tiny and slim, nice and simple design. Also very useful for English and Asian recipes because they use "ml" and "g". Of course you can also use this scale for "ounces" too.
You can purchase on Amazon.

La Dijonaise Cafe et Boulangerie - Culver City

This place was disappointing. Nothing delicious. They don't heat up tart or muffin so our tart was just cold. I ordered latte and I could only taste milk. It was my first time asking to take them back my latte.

This is cafe latte that I tasted and didn't like at all, so I asked them if I can change it to regular coffee. They said they'll make new one, but I didn't want that. I just asked for regular coffee.

And I got coffee. It was nothing special, like you can get at Seven Eleven.

Desserts and Drink menu

Gluten free blueberry muffin
It was dry. Not soft or moist and that means not so high calories?

Apricot tart
Served cold. Tasted like from cheap bakery. I didn't like tart crust.
