Zahlers Reach Whey Protein Shake powder

Reach, Zahlers active nutrition line, restores energy and cuts hunger. With Reach you'll eat better, exercise harder, do more, be more, you'll REACH for your goals, then you'll REACH further. Then you'll REACH for another REACH. The word protein is derived from the Greek word Proteios, meaning Primary, alluding to its great importance to our diet. Protein is essential to practically every part of the body, from hair and skin to muscle and tissue. Whey protein is popular among individuals who have specific fitness goals, like athletes and bodybuilders. Among its benefits, whey protein has a fast absorption rate, which means that not only does it help build muscle, but it also helps repair muscle immediately after a workout. Whey is a complete protein, providing all the nine essential amino acids necessary for our bodies.

Available flavors:  Chocolate, Vanilla, Cookies and Cream, Cappuccino, Strawberry

I got very basic vanilla. I make smoothie every morning and I just add it to it. I bet this will make great milkshake. Also it's very filling.

BierBeisl Imbiss - Downtown L.A.

I was excited to try BierBeisl but I was kinda disappointed at the end.
So, I tried Nurnberger $8, it comes with 2 German sausage, fresh horseradish and your choice of bread. I chose pretzel. Pretzel was dry and wasn't very good. I didn't get horseradish. I guess they forgot, which is really sad. I really loved German sausages, it was really good.  I also wanted to try their pastry so I got brioche. Brioche was my hand size and it was $5.50. It was good, but also it's $5.50 which is pretty pricey.
What I really didn't like about this place was that they charge "service charge" automatically. My sausage $8 + one small brioche $5.50, the total came up to $17.36. Water was self-serve and we picked up our food our self, and they still charge you "service charge". I really don't like that system. The stuff were all very nice and friendly, but because of this service charge, and everything was overpriced, I probably won't go back. ..Good food though!

LA weekly burgers & beer 2015

The first time ever, LA weekly had Burgers & Beer event recently. As it says, it's all about beer and burgers and I mean it. If you love beer and burger, this is the perfect event to go to. And I suggest to bring Ziploc. No, seriously.. I had so many burgers I wanted to try but I was too full and I couldn't. One of the burger I really wish I tried were Vaka burger and seoul sausage. 

I thought they're gonna have sliders or small sample size but no, it wasn't. Some places serves sliders, but many places were serving full size regular burgers. I wish they had smaller portion so I can try more. Still, I think I ate around 15 burgers so I'm satisfied.
