My favorite uni pasta from @sakedojola which blows nearby marugame monzo and pasta e pasta's versions out of the water. Love the thin udon which soaks up the roasted tomato + lobster sauce and uni butter so well. I didn't experience taste fatigue which happens a lot with uni dishes. Big enough to share...but only if you want to.
This meat mountain is called "American Cut" and is comprised of a bowl of white rice covered by 7 oz of thinly-sliced rare roast beef and topped with savory yogurt sauce and a Jidori egg yolk that slowly drips down. Original location started in Torrance but this one just opened a few weeks ago in Sawtelle. Thanks @seoulfoodie for climbing this mountain with me! #meatsweats #redrockrestaurant #sawtelle #beef #meatmountain #jidori #japanesefood #teampixel
Last nightโ€™s event was very memorable because it wasnโ€™t the usual formal sit-down dinner serving tweezer food dominated by technical perfection. It was a feast filled with a dazzling array of flavors and textures with a casual ambiance akin to eating dinner at a friendโ€™s house. Well...if the friend was as talented as Chef @nyeshajoyce who loves blending Asian, African, American cultures together on a plate. Her passion of feeding and watching guests receiving her passion is the greatest gift of satisfaction. Pictured here is her version of the summer banchan, an ode to the traditional korean small dishes that accompany a meal. Clockwise from the bottom: potato salad with nori, white kimchi with just a touch of fermentation, pico de gallo with juicy, ripe peaches, soft beans with whole cloves of garlic, chips with eggplant mousse...and our group favorite: the big bowl of shiitake, emoji, and oyster mushrooms tossed with sweet corn. Our group could have eaten five bowls. Thanks @tastingtable for arranging this intimate โ€œpicnicโ€ that showcased the bounty of local produce and to @eatnative.la for the hospitality of the staff that made the night that much more special! #nativesantamonica #banchan #picnic #TTinsider
When I moved to LA last year, fellow foodie @vindicatingjustice introduced me to my favorite sandwich, "the not so fried", containing tender slices of @maryschicken , crunchy slaw, juicy tomatoes, fried crispies, all sandwiched between soft ciabatta slices. Consistently awesome @mendocino_farms ๐Ÿ‘ Happy non-traditional #NationalFriedChickenDay !!! #mendocinofarms #notsofriedchicken #sandwich
Gonna need a detox after July 4th with something like this crunchy walnut and endive salad with citrus and goat cheese. Salmon optional. #thelittlebeet #salad #salmon #veggies #detox #healthy
Bulgogi and pickled radish in a sandwich? Sign me up! @spoonbyh Thanks for taking me here @misspiggieeats ! #spoonbyh #bulgogi #sandwich #koreanfood #fusion
If you find yourself hungry near Melrose, check out @pirolos , an Italian spot that started out as a food truck in Miami. The Italian Dip sandwich I sampled was filled with ample slices of juicy meat that was topped with this amazing salsa verde that gave my mouth a punch with some lingering heat. The bread is soft and chewy and the side of au jus was delicious for dipping. The lemon chicken was brined to lock in moisture and had this delicate sauce with the perfect amount of acidity. The Yukon Gold potatoes melted like butter in my mouth and the broccoli rabe provided just the right amount of bitterness for balance. Save room for the cannolis! #pirolos #pirolospanino #andthenpanino #italiandip #sandwich #lemonchicken #italianfood
I know it's not the prettiest, but this 3 meat combo with soup and rice always puts a smile on my face. There are a number of these Chinese restaurants in San Gabriel Valley and Alhambra with a hot bar where you point at whatever you want and you get this obscene platter piled high with food that triggers nostalgia of your mom's cooking. What did I order? Egg with tomato, bok choy, stewed beef and radish, Lion's head meatball. Easily split into 2 meals. For $6 total. #kangkangfoodcourt #chinesefood #uglydelicious #alhambra #yummo
It's been 62F at night which means noodle weather. Cozy up to this bowl of hot soba with thinly-sliced beef with drippy egg, umami bomb mushrooms, and leafy greens. Good to the last drop! #mimimyunga #soba #ktown #egg #beef #noodles
Last week, Osteria Francescana was named the top restaurant in the world by @theworlds50best. In 2016, I had the pleasure of dining there in the private wine cellar and had the most amazing 4 hour lunch with @massimobottura checking up on me throughout the meal. Amazing service from the staff and I was able to watch some talented cooks plating some dishes in the kitchen after the meal. The kitchen had a happy ambiance where everyone was in good spirits and you could feel their passion for the craft. By the time Massimo asked for a group picture, everyone was lit. And it wasnโ€™t even Friday. You were ranked number 1 in 2016 and now in 2018. You will always be number 1 in my book. Congrats again to the team!

Fryday Dumps? Sure, I'll bite. #masonsdumplingshop #dumplings #fryday #happyfriday
Browned some succulent chicken thighs from @maryschicken and added some bok choy and red bell peppers. Excluded rice and salt. Instead, I used black pepper, red chili pepper flakes, and some garlic for flavor. Thanks @milkandeggscom for always delivering quality ingredients to my doorstep! #milkandeggs #maryschicken #chicken #homemade #cooking #lowsodium #healthy #eatveggies
Attended a media event yesterday at @crustaceanbh where we got a preview of their summer seasonal cocktails and happy hour bites (I may have had a few boxes of their famous garlic noodles).

Banana Bread - bourbon, banana Demerara syrup 4. Bun Cha - grilled pork meatballs, rice noodle, herbs, veggies, and a flavorful sauce (menu special for limited time) 5. Chef Helene An prepping for demo 6. Yuzu Fizz - gin, pox, coconut cream, egg whites, yuzu soda, lime and lemon 7. Hightea Penicillin - black tea-infused scotch, ginger honey syrup, lemon, (black tea + lavender cloud 8. Post cloud pour 9. @misspiggieeats and me after eating for an hr -- Thanks @crustaceanbh for a fun and delicious event! #crustaceanbh #mediaevent #menutasting #summer #cocktails #happyhour #teampixel
While the juicy chicken was perfectly roasted, the star of the dish was the fluffy rice that soaked in the wonderful sauce made of dried apricot, pomegranate, apple, vinegar. This sweet and sour sauce complemented the chicken well. The translucent onions and the olives added even more notes of flavor. All in all, this flavor-packed dish was one of this year's best. Thanks @timeoutla for this photo assignment at this new Israeli restaurant! #jaffala #israelifood #roastchicken #rice
Excellent bun bo hue from @summer_rolls_restaurant. Springy noodles with tender beef slices in a clean and light broth devoid of superfluous sodium. Don't forget to order some summer rolls (I liked the pork one). #summerrolls #bunbohue #vietnamesefood #noodlesoup #sgveats #sangabriel #teampixel
It's been about a week since Google shipped me a Pixel 2 XL and I've been playing around with the powerful camera. Love the detail, clarity, dynamic range, and responsiveness - a marked improvement over my iPhone 7. Here is a picture I took using the portrait mode at @meetfreshusa. I wanted to capture the reflection of the raised spoon above the bowl of warm red bean soup and the reflection of the glistening mochi ball filled with sesame paste waiting to gush out. The background was blurred in a way that looks natural and not too "fake". Gonna keep testing the capabilities of this camera as I like what I see so far. #meetfreshusa #redbeansoup #mochi #sesamemochi #dessert #sangabrielvalley #sgveats #taiwanesefood . #teampixel
