May 2018 Weekend Rundown


#1

If April showers bring May flowers, what then do May showers bring?


#2

Wet Pilgrims?


#4

Urinal cakes?

Behind Bavel or Sqirl?


#5

It kind of defines Squirrelgirl perfectly.


#6

Sqirl


#7

For heavy rotation: Chef Brandon Go’s exquisite, consistently outstanding bento box at Hayato Nihonryori


#8

That looks awesome- how much?


#9

$50 per box.


#10

How big is the box? Looks huge…and gorgeous. We go to his family’s sushi restaurant in Seal Beach.


#11

Definitely generous. Standard-sized chopsticks placed on top of the box for relative size comparison…


#12

Thanks! I was so impressed with the box, I neglected to pay attention to it’s surroundings.


#13

Had Il Pesce and Holbox back to back, and the latter crushed it.

Il Pesce Cucina

Had a geoduck crudo, nice and simple, refreshing but sort of boring. Best dish I had.

Ramp Agnolotti , good but not exciting and the ramp flavor was sort of lost.

Insalata di mare, yawn. Decent seafood but not the best quality.

Holbox

Scallop taco :heart_eyes: add that dark smokey salsa and POW :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Coctel mixto :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Blood clams were great adding the different salsas to them.


#14

those holbox pix…O_O


#15

I bought two of these, meaning to give one to my neighbor, but I ate both so very quickly that I’m happy no one was there to see.


#16

I like the pastries/desserts in the refrigerated case. If I’m ordering for four, I order for six, cuz six turns into four between there and home. You know the drill.


#17

Someone brought over some Canto classics from Fortune Gourmet…

Don’t you hate it when you run out of scallion oil?


#18

Cluck2Go Rowland Heights (sign still says Man Chan)

A new Hainan Chicken Rice specialist with other locations in Pasadena and Hacienda Heights.

Parking sucks at this Rowland locations FYI.

Got the #9, Dark Meat

Chicken: Moist and flavorful, delivered fresh daily from a nearby farm.

Rice: Not too fragrant, kinda bland, no hint of chicken flavor at all.

Sauce: Sweeten soy is at table side. The ginger and chile sauces are very good here. Probably my favorite so far.

Was considering going to Cocoin for a HCR Bang Bang but decided against it.

Count me in as a fan of Cluck2Go. Pretty damn solid, if the rice was better it would be damn perfect.

I kinda wanna combine the sauces from Thai and Viet style HCR with Singapore.


#19

Did you have Man Chan before?


#20

Nope but I heard the HCR was not too good. Have you had Cluck2Go?


#21

I had Man Chan and it was not very good. Never had Cluck. Just looks similar to what Man Chan offered before.
