Molcajete Burrito @ Nina’s Mexican Food

He always searches good Mexican restaurants and found this one.

Complimentary Chips & Salsa

Molcajete Burrito (Asada) $9

This is so delicious. Good amount meat, moderately spicy sauce, cheese and avocado on top…well balanced all together.

He had a regular burrito and regretted not having this wet one. Of course, I shared with him, but wanted to have a whole thing 🙂 Yes, it was that good.

Amazing Lunch @ King Poke

I happened to find a new poke place in Lomita and tried out for lunch. It’s 15 minute drive each way from my work, but totally worth it.

There are four step to make your own poke bowl. All poke bowl has albacore, tuna, salmon in it.

1. Choose size: Small looked really small, so I picked medium. But I realized that small would have generous amount of fish and be good to me.

2. Choose sushi rice or harusame noodle (lighter option): Picked rice for the first time.

3. Choose sauce: 5 sauces available including creamy sesame or spicy Korean. Tried the most popular house ponzu today.

4. Choose topping: cilantro, fried onion and shredded nori for mine.

Medium Poke Bowl with Ponzu, Fried Onion, Cilantro, Shredded Seaweed $8.95 + green tea $1.50

Wow, the best poke ever. Ponzu is a little spicy which is just right. They mix fish with sauce as you order. So it tastes fresh and not soggy.

I arrived 12:10, but it got really busy by 12:20. They seem to attract all kinds of people, young and old, men and women, all different ethnicities.

Definitely will try all other sauce and noodle. The fish taco (2) looks good and is only $3.50. Can’t wait to go back.
