Yup Dduk LA - Koreatown

Challenge at your own risk! Yup Dduk is known for spicy rice cakes. Their rice cakes are made in Korea so you get authentic flavor. We got everything with original spicy level, and their original was like level 7 or something. It was pretty spicy. My friend tried mild and they said mild was spicy.
Seriously, when I was eating leftover at home on next day, I thought I was gonna cry. It was extremely spicy so be sure to order some sides like rice balls, porridge, fishcake soup etc. It helps.

CottonHi - Koreatown

CottonHi opened in Koreatown few months ago and I already been here few times. I just love this place. If you love some unique and yummy dessert, this is the place to go in Koreatown.
My recommendation is mango cheese delight and mud night. Be sure to add cotton candy! You get to pick cotton candy flavors. This place has several different flavors of cotton candies, such as coffee, coffee, strawberry, mint, salted caramel, lemonade, and the newest flavor, hibiscus.
So far, every time I'm here, every single one of them are taking pics and yes, they are that pretty.

Organic Matcha Powder for your health

ORGANIC Matcha Powder from Kakegawa, Japan - For both food, beverages, cookies, snack, or ice cream e.t.c. I like making green tea yogurt every morning and eat with granola. It's super easy to make, you just mix with plain yogurt and green tea powder and you'll have green tea yogurt!

Because matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, it's a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. In addition to providing small amounts of vitamins and minerals.Matcha aficionados say that compared to the caffeine buzz from coffee, matcha creates an "alert calm" due to a natural substance it contains called l-theanine, which induces relaxation without drowsiness.

High in Antioxidants: it contains the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content. The first amazing benefit of Matcha Green Tea is that just one bowl provides over 5 times as many antioxidants as any other food - the highest rated by the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) method.

Loaded with Catechin, EGCg: Green tea contains a specific set of organic compounds known as catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial.

Burns Calories: Support to increase metabolism and help the body burn fat about four times faster than average.

Detoxifies the Body: Support to have antibiotic properties which promote overall health.
