I woke up early and went to get haircut this morning.


I wanted Cheese Tea but it was too early to open.

Not as many pastries as Brendwood Store


Tarts and cakes look delicious. It was tempting but I am going to bake my cheesecake.


I got 4 kinds of pastries.

Po’ Boy @ Darrow’s New Orleans Grill

Trying a New Orleans restaurant.


Secret menu is no longer secret…


Happy Hour 4-7pm


Around 6pm, there were only 3-4 groups, but it was almost full when we left around 7pm.


Menu


They offer samples for first timers. From left, gumbo, red beans & rice, jambalaya. All good 🙂


New Orleans Theme Wall


Happy Hour Stella ($4) and Chardonnay ($4)

Glass was very dirty and I asked to change. The bartender washed it right in front of us and served wine in the wet glass. Not impressive at all, but it would be acceptable at this price. Also, this wine tastes very light and sweet, which I am not fan. Beer would be a safe choice.


His: Catfish Po’ Boy $8.99, Mine: Bayou Classic Po’ Boy (Shrimp & Oyster) $10.99

It was pretty good but difficult to eat without spilling. I will try either catfish po’ boy or gumbo.

My Cooking Day!


Breakfast @ 10:40am: Nutella Stuffed French Toast + Coffee


It was first time to make it but came out perfect.


Grocery shopping @ Whole Foods


Lunch Time


Cooking Yokote Yakisoba, fried noodle from my home prefecture


It’s supposed to be served with Fukujin-zuke not red ginger.


Noodle is chewier than regular yakisoba and sauce is sweeter. Delicious 🙂


Light Dinner @ 8pm


Dessert: Cheese Cake


I tried a new recipe. It looks ugly but tastes good 🙂
