Charming little place serving comfort food.
Shrimp and Veggie Tempura.
Nice home style comfort food. It’s not going to blow your socks off but it definitely satisfies a certain state of mind (and hunger). Kinda reminds me of Sawtelle Tempura House in a way.
Took a little break to watch the lights come on and the sun to set down. Caught a show at the Planetarium and did not fall asleep!
Got a little something to keep me awake. For…
Rooftop Cinema! Tonight’s feature was Its A Wonderful Life. Jimmy Stewart is excellent and the film is a good reminder to everyone: Your life matters and you make a difference. I really mean that. They are showing it again next Tuesday as well as other Christmas movies including Home Alone (1, 2, 10!!! Buzz’s girlfriend, Woof! Look what you did you little jerk! Your what the French call, les incompetent! Okay enough)
Yes their papaya salad is good and they generally doing other things generally pretty solid to okay.
This place speciality is Thai-Chinese Chiu Chow/Teochew/Chaozhou. Dishes meant to be eaten with Khao Tom (Plain Rice Soup).
The 2 above dishes, Salty Turnip and Egg and Morning Glory with extra garlic go with Khao Tom. The turnip is slightly sweet and to take this dish to the next level use some of the vinegar chiles or hot sauce. The greens are just pure garlicky and savory. Other Chiu Chow dishes here is the Braised Duck or just ask the waitresses for Chiu Chow dishes. Don’t trust the Yelpers and other foodie outlets. For more on this style, Mark Wiens has some blog posts and vids on Thai-Chiu Chow/Khao Tom food.
Come on it’s right across the plaza!
Love the Pandan Custard here! Coconut cakes are okay not as good as Mae Tings or at Wat Thai. The pangchi and fried bananas are tasty too.
