japanese quick breakfast: natto, fermented soy beans, seaweed, japanese pickles over rice with instant miso soup
We had lunch at a Mediterranean restaurant that my friend recommends. It is located in the quiet side of Santa Monica, just 3 miles and 7 minute drive away from home. I like the clean, simple and bright setting. The food is fresh and tasty, not to be over seasoned, so you could taste “a real taste of ingredients.” However, he prefers to go to the Persian restaurant we usually go in our neighborhood. Maybe, this place is too cool for him.
grilled salmon plate with mixed green and tomato soup $11.95
I chose rose sauce, spicy chipotle mayo for my plate, but hummus-like garlic sauce he picked was better.
meat sauce spaghetti
Since I had a big lunch and felt so stuffed, I skipped dinner. This is just for him. I used pre chopped veggies from Trader Joe’s that is much coarser, so it didn’t come out as good as usual. More you do, better you get. Always.
cheesecake and chocolate mousse $4.50 each for my dinner and his dessert
We did take out from the Mediterranean place. By the way, this restaurant could be a good hangout place with girl friends for tea/coffee and dessert.
