Half sweet, soy, no whip. Oh yeah, I’m one of those (terrible) custom people at 7AM.

Decided to stop by Yogurtland on a random night. The Brea one closes at midnight! Today I got plain tart with strawberries and mochi, almonds and coconut shavings. YUMMM.

Yeah, I’m a regular here. This time we got the #5 Lamb and added fermented tofu, fish balls, and pork intestine. Kinda sounds gross but was amazing as usual!

This place had a line forming before it opened on Sunday at 5PM! There were plenty of wait staff for the small restaurant, but it’s small so if your party is bigger than 5 people, it’s probably not ideal. We opted for the sushi combination B and sashimi combination for three people. This filled us up and the sushi was absolutely divine in the flavors melding. I highly recommend it. Although the sashimi was fresh and buttery, I felt the sushi was much better. DEFINITELY will return…

Three people + tax & tip landed us around $75. What a steal.

This place is nestled in one of the Little Tokyo plazas (near Nijiya Market). They offer drinks that had a slightly different Asia feel, with Hong Kong style teas but I had the Genmai Latte. This is prepared with whole milk and can only be made soy in hot. It seemed like it was too much trouble for the barista so I just went with the milk.

Pictured here is their assortment of donuts which included a bacon donut and something called a Koko Churro. Will try next time!

The Cerritos location had gyros on Bag 8! It’s not as good as other gyros but it hit the spot for me!
