Rooftop @ La Casa del Camino

I spent two nights with my life-time best friend here at this charming boutique hotel in Laguna Beach.

Just hearing and looking at the ocean are so soothing.

Trastevere, Santa Monica

I am surprised that they got only three stars on yelp because it is one of my favorite italian restaurants around Los Angeles. I can’t forget this restaurant although I have been there only three times. Only three times, but these were all memorable occasions.

1) First date with him, 2) Business setting (I could make a deal with them after tough time), 3) Just fun with two important people for my life (my best friend who finally visited me in America after 13 years and of course him)

cesare salad, spaghetti pescatore and pinot noir

I really liked the spaghetti that was kind of chewy. No wonder that it was freshly home made.

seed, Venice

I would hire Chef Eric Lechasseur as my personal chef if I was a millionaire.

I would be a happy vegetarian.

Taco Mesa

One of reasons I miss OC is this restaurant.

blackened shrimp taco $3.25, wild alaskan salmon taco $4
I never get tired of the food here. So creative and original.

soup of the day $2.75
This is totally a steal. Some places charge bucks for avocado by itself. It is homey and tasty.
