Shroomer @ Burger City Grill

We have been debating between burger and pizza. Burger wins!

I don’t drink beer at home any more, but I enjoyed a draft today. He had 805, I don’t remember what mine was. 1/2 off beer daily 5:00pm to close.

My burger: Shroomer $7.65, grilled mushrooms, caramelized onions, dill pickle chips, roma tomatoes, green leaf lettuce and B.C.G. spread & Blue Cheese

This is my type of burger. It tastes complex with sweetness of caramelized onion, earthiness of mushroom, spiciness of blue cheese and sourness of pickles. Patty is so juicy. Perfect!

His: Maui $6.95, applewood smoked bacon, teriyaki glaze, grilled pineapple slices, red onions and B.C.G. spread
This would be my second choice if I was not allergic to pineapple. He says it’s pretty good.

Oreo Shake $4.95
I didn’t think he agreed to get it, but he did! Delicious!

This place use all fresh ingredients, premium USDA choice beef and daily baked buns. Great quality for great price.

Hanging Out @ Brouwerij West

Driving to San Pedro with a friend

A cool brewery in one of warehouses near Port of Los Angeles

8 beers offered

Ordering all of them as taster

Brilliant But Lazy, Popfuji, Saison Extra, Switcheroo, Dog Ate My Homework, Ask the Dust, Falling Water, Vampire Blues

They name them interesting and all of them taste good. Some are very hoppy. My favorite is Brilliant But Lazy. Dog Ate My HW tastes like berry juice but contains highest 7% alcohol.

Two food venders were there.

A lot of seatings outside. It was chilly at night.

Pretty purple sky with moon.

Tasting Menu @ Kali

I had a nice dinner with a friend @ Kali where my husband made a reservation for my birthday last year but we couldn’t make it because of my ear infection.

Almost empty when we arrived


Ordered 6 course tasting menu with wine pairing

Organic, Simple, Relaxing

1st course: Oyster, Rose Sparkling

“1st” course: Uni Two Ways

Since my friend can’t eat oysters, they offered something else for both of us. I had both oyster and uni. Yay!

Uni is so sweet on basked cube polenta.

Crisp and dry

2nd course: Heirloom Tomato with Pesto

Beautiful presentation

Floral white

Rosemary bread & butter

3rd course: Uni Pasta

Two pieces of chunky uni underneath foam. I loved gluey homemade pasta.

My favorite grape, Roussane
Rich and full body

4th course: Black Cod with Parsley & Sweet Corn Sauce

Fatty fish is so delicious

Spanish red for steak

5th course: Ribeye Steak with Bone Marrow & Potato Churro

Steak is tender but a bit too much fat for me.

Dessert Wine

6th course: Meringelato with Candied Egg Yolk
Smooth ice cream is perfect to enjoy with Madeira.

Very reasonable for quality food and service
