Icelandic Yogurt & Matcha Chocolate

img_2548
Breakfast

img_2549
My favorite yogurt in US market
Dense, rich and smooth.

img_2550
For the first time, I look at the label closely. I didn’t know that it was Icelandic style yogurt. I picked this yogurt because of low sugar and good taste. But…all natural, milk from grass-fed cows…No wonder it’s delicious!

Sushi Tsujita & Laduree

Two of my girlfriend and I scheduled a sushi lunch one and a half month ago. It finally happened today. We usually do sushi omakase for dinner, but it’s generally very pricey, so did lunch instead. Even not omakase.

img_2528
Starter: Osuimono, clear broth with seaweed & ofu

img_2530
Bara-Chirashi-Sushi $18

img_2531
Tuna, Salmon, Kohada, Ikura, White Fish…
It’s a great deal and delicious.

Two girls got coffee at B Sweet, my husband joined us and we all went to a couple of open houses.

Dropped him at home and headed to a new shop in Beverly Hills.

img_2535
My girlfriends say this is a French pastry shop, famous for macarons.

img_2537
Deco doesn’t look French, but male staff in suit is obviously French. We enjoyed hearing their English with French accent.

Peper Heidieck, Cuvee Brut $18/glass
Toast with a glass of Champagnes 🙂

Macarons
I had pistachio & rose petal. Both good.
We wanted to patisseries such as Isphan or Saint Honore, but they were all sold out.

We had a good time not only catching up each other but also enjoying French ambience. It was such an affordable way to experience France.
