Once you’ve eaten Arby’s roast beef, you know you are not going anywhere else for fast food. Bad fast food ? I don’t think, you should see how much beef they give you inside your bun, it’s crazy. Almost like beef don’t cost any money here. Super thin slices of roast beef and just order them without the dressing else you will have them dripping all over your shirt. I made this mistake once and I order them plain now and put whatever I want later. Try their curly fries as well and they do have salad as well.
We have a thing about ceasar salad and can’t find anything good after having some in Tijuana, where they make the ceasar salad right in front of you. It was great stuff and for years, we have been looking for something comparable and we chance upon a small eatery here off the coast where they served real anchovies in their ceasar salad, it was quite amusing but we were game to try anything new. I have to say we prefer the ones smashed into the garlic instead of whole anchovies though. I forsee a trip to Mexico soon.
I was in LA a few months ago and my Korean co-worker said to me one night that the Korean food in LA, I’ve got to try because they are way better than the ones he gets from home. And who is to argue with him when he is orginally from Korean right.
Korean Town in LA was the place we went and the BBQ was pretty good but moreso the dippings that came with it. You know that they are mostly home made because of their robust in taste and the beef was so soft and tender, it just slid down my throat. And don’t miss on the kimchis they offer, i try everyone of them and amused everyone of my co-workers in LA.
The wife said i had to go to the hottest hot dog stand when i am in L.A. – I asked her which one because I have been to so many and she mentioned pink. So dutifully like any good husband i went to take some pictures and eat some. It was definitely packed as you can see, open till late and full of greasy ingredients but the people here just loves it.
Yes, love the varieties as you can see up here and definitely must have the onion rings and the pink pop. You can find pictures of hollywood stars pasted all over the walls of this hot dog shack.
What do you do when you see this huge crate of sweet potatoes..?? In our family, we make sweet potatoes tempura !! the kid loves it, the wife thinks it is healthy and me – it’s easy enough to peel them off and cut them up and dump them into the deep fryer or better yet put them in the oven and baked them. We watch tv and munched them down. The kid thinks I’m a hero and the wife thinks I am a good father.

Flying Business Class has its perks, we all know that by now and if you don’t well, you probably haven’t been flying a lot. Had a choice of bento or steak and i chose the steak since I will be eating a lot of Japanese, that was my reasoning. The beef was from New Zealand although I would have preferred Kobe beef but that’s alright. Can’t complain when you are so high up in the air, not the freshest is what you kind of expect. But overall, it was a pretty good meal.
When you have a chinese wife, you get to try all sorts of things and one of them is this cold noodles and they are also called Cold Soba. I ordered this when i was at the airport in Narita and the girl who took my order gave me a giggle. I guess she must be thinking what would a Western man know about cold soba right.
Cheese on JAL business class but not really the kind of cheese I liked, they said these were the international cheese selection. I asked if they served cheese whiz and the flight attendant thought I was crazy. The next time, I should remember to bring my own.
Found this in the Malaysia supermarket and brought some home. The wife said she grew up eating them and they smell fishy like cuttlefish. Very chewy and a great snack with beer.
