Earthen Restaurant In Monterey Park

I WAS SCROLLING MY PHOTO ALBUMS IN MY HANDPHONE... There are so many of them not posted up yet in my blog here. I better do them before the pictures "disappear" from my hp, never know when, right? My HP is a four years old now, anything can happen and my laptop here is now full of PICTURES! Another problem, I got to get a hard disk to download them all...

Coming back to my current post, these pictures were taken during dinner on our first night in Los Angeles.  My sister's friends joined us for dinner and they suggested coming to this place Earthen Restaurant in Monterey Park for a meet-up. 
We drove nearly for an hour from our hotel to this Earthen Restaurant 
which is a mixture of Hongkong cum Korean food... 
Highly recommended was the word!
Amused by the chopsticks wrapper.... 
Hope it's effective to those new learners... 
And now our dishes... ordered by the LA locals... :)
Roast chicken with lots of garlic as toppings and the skin was kind of "sweetened"
Very special....
Love this pancake with leeks....
A very tasty combination... crispy on top and soft inside...
This is something similiar to our local "Loe Sang" in Malaysia...  
And after the Mix...
This is familiar... Kau Chee... 
Some greens with beef as topping... 
This reminds me of Korean too... 
Pancake with big onions and some greens...
I like this... I think I took two pieces straight on...
Lastly and not least... a plate of Hongkong style fried rice...
By then my tummy was going to "close shop"....
The bill for these dishes above came to around $80++ 
Certainly we cannot get this price over here if we don't convert... 
hahahaaa.....
Till we meet again... in LA...

  2. The pancake with lots of leek in it is a dish from Taiwan and maybe China too.

  4. Wow! I love this pancake with leeks. My sister who has a Swedish hubby always make this pancakes with different fillings including spinach.
    I know the Americans are very excited with the chopsticks and fortune cookies! Funny thing is that we don;t even have fortune cookies in Malaysia, Taiwan, HKG or China!!! I heard these cookies with messages are imported from HKG for US market only. Funny yeah!??

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
