Mitsuwa's Hokkaido Fair is back! 9/11-914

Looks like the same ramen vendors that were in place at the Legendary Ramen Fair earlier this year:

The pastries and bentou boxes look tempting.

So many noodles, so little time. I'm saving my lunch for some cold noodles and dango. Mmm.

what would you like to see open in silver lake/echo park?

Yes! How about a parking garage? Heh.

Thanks for posting this up, Keizo. I saw some tables being set up last weekend and wondered if I missed an event.

Great bar in the valley?

Foxfire Room is located 1 block north of the 101 at Whitsett(exit at Laurel Canyon). It's just east of the 405 interchange in Valley Village. I haven't been, but know friends who have and enjoyed the cheap, strong drinks and laidback feel.

Great Eats-San Fernando Valley

Drove by the other day and saw a banner that says Hearts is serving dinner too now. Anyone been?

Not The King Of Dim Sum - King Hua Restaurant [Review] w/ Pics!

I was at Sea Harbour yesterday(6/29) and the only thing different was the lack of a line! Now I might know why. The service and food were consistent with what I've had in the past. As usual, everything was very freshly prepared-har gow, siu mai, meatball congee, shark fin dumplings, bean curd rolls, shrimp w/chives. The only order that wasn't particularly great were the xlbs.

I still may want to try King Hua but I'm certainly not looking forward to an MSG hangover.

Late nite eateries in noho/valley village area

Sanamluang Cafe is open super late as well and has great noodle soups and Thai entrees.

DuPar's is a bit farther in Studio City. It's open 24 hours and serves up American diner food.
