Tai-kadai Kitchen - Rosemead

South-East Asian kinda place. They have pho etc..viet-thai place might be a better definition.

Tai-kadai Kitchen - Rosemead

Newly opened "fusion" kinda place.

We ordered the chicken knee appetizer -> a bit too salty for my liking.

Complimentary appetizers were good.

Teochew noodles were excellent! Broth is not overladen with MSG or soy sauce. Very light but good tasting.

Tom Yam noodles was actually vermicelli. Broth was pretty good too.

Ambiance and cleanliness was A+. Pricing was also excellent.

A Li Shan - Rosemead

Looks like the old Hunan Seafood place had been renamed. Still servicing busloads of tourists.

We sampled the mabo tofu and slice pork chilli dish. Menu looks similar to the old Hunan place but they do have pork chop rice etc that are typical of Taiwanese places.

Name change dispute I guess?

Overall...great for a cold afternoon.

Bugis Street Brasserie

Singapore 'influenced' food place.

Laksa was decent..and considered one of the best In US of A by the missus (most of the ones she had sampled thoughout the country were mediocre)

Hainan chicken was blah. Didn't try the satay as I am watching my red meat in-take.

Worth a visit if you want a pre-game meal or enjoying the Biltmore's architecture. Parking is $6 validated.

URSPACE - Temple City

yep..same sentiments..no hurry to go back..but really like the setup (probably due to lack of such a joint in that area)

URSPACE - Temple City

They officially opened last week.

Love the modern decor, would probably do better in Pasadena than Temple City.

They didn't have the signature lobster dish today. So ended up with the wine chicken and seafood pasta.

Am probably going to stick with just latte the next time.

Two Hainan Chicken Specialists In The Same Shopping Center (Almost)

Man Chan has been around for a while. Recommend ordering the dark meat option. Closet thing to the real thing from Singapore...I say 25% authentic ;-)

that reminds me...need to open a Hainan Chicken Rice + Char Kway Teow place in SM.

Ramen Festival Coming to Torrance

Damn..look at the lines! Me and my buds decided to skip it after watching that ramen burger video. Looks like you have to bring your own foldable chairs.

Even though Sun Noodles started in HNL, i had yet to have real good ramen here in HNL. Had not tried gomaichi since they are in the same location as other fantastic sushi joints near Ala Moana.

Mottainai Ramen: has it gone down hill?

Had not been there in a while...only perk of eating there was shopping at Marukai next door...but there's a food court right inside...so....no loss.

Them Dining - Waikiki

Omakase was excellent. Had a 7 course dinner.

Am surprised there are no one there.

Omakase must be ordered 1 day in advanced.

Chef Shimada was really good. The seafood ponzu marinade was to die for.

Enjoy these pics! Will be my weekly dining place from now on.

Located at Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel. Ask the front desk for directions..they are by the pool
