Had a nice meal at LSXO followed by Bear Flag Poke and Mahogany Smoked Meats pepper jerky.
I was a bit dubious of LSXO after an average tasting meal at Little Sister DTLA. But this meal was fantastic.
Got the papaya salad, excellent and hits every note.
Dac Biet SGV, this was good but nothing extraordinary. Bread was excellent.
Lamb sauté noodles were damn tasty. Put some of their house made chili sauce and POW! Lamb was super tender, pickled chilies sweet and tangy, coconut milk with a soothing milky sweetness and the spice mixture complex.
And maybe my favorite dish, the scallop and shrimp "chao" with Chinese donuts. This dish had such great flavor that was clean yet potent. The Chinese donut made for a nice crunch and the scallops and shrimps tender.
Drinks were great too, don't remember the names.
Then Bear Flag because why not have excellent poke after. They changed the chips (or maybe just this location) which are less hard than the Newport Beach location.
And some pepper beef jerky from Mahogany Smoked Meats because I don't want to drive to Bishop for excellent beef jerky.
Huntington Beach bang^nth game getting stronger.
Also had some Little Jewel. Fuckin can't not order this french fry poboy, so fuckin great. And a shrimp poboy, always great.
