In Koreatown, there are so, so, so many places to eat. Even though I live there, I suppose I've only eaten at 7% of the places. It's just huge! I've been passing by Wako's for years. it's located at 2904 West Olympic Blvd, LA CA 90006, 213-387-9256. Cutlet or fried food is the kind of food I grew up with and is always nostalgic comfort food to me. Perhaps that's redundant but it is was it is. Wako has great food. I ordered the fish cutlet, which was awesome, not greasy or heavy, and came with lots of sides including rice, miso soup, pickled vegetables and a salad. It was a big lunch for under $10. I'm definitely going back.

Aloha Cafe in Little Tokyo

Aloha Cafe relocated from Monterey Park to Little Tokyo this April. They are now in Honda Plaza, 410 East 2nd Street, Los Angeles CA 90012, 213-346-9930. Today for lunch, I ordered the Pork Lau Lau & Small Side of Lomi Salmon with a ice green tea drink. The Lau Lau was awesome. I haven't had one this good in a long time, not since one from Hawaii via Auntie Jeannie. The Lomi was great. I ordered this plate without rice (my Doctor told me to stop eating rice) so I got extra salad along with the macaroni salad. The pork in the Lau Lau was tender and the taro leave was juicy. I am most definitely going back. hey, they had Ramen Salad.

Red Corner Asia

I had an amazing meal with my son yesterday in Thai Town. Red Corner Asia is located at 5267 Hollywood Blvd, LA CA 90027, 323-466-6722. This is of course in Thai Town just east of Hollywood. It's so wonderful to walk around and smell the aroma's and peek in the shops. The Thai pop music fills the streets. it's a great place to get a great meal. We had a chicken curry dish, sizzling BBQ ribs and very spicy green bean dish. The food is made of fresh ingredients and presented in a very elegant way. The service was great and the women are very or maybe I can say highly attractive. It appears that the roasted chicken is something they are well known for. We didn't order it this time but look forward to it next time. They have valet parking. Sorry, I didn't have my camera with me but they have lot's of images on their website

Back Home in Lahaina

I am a sucker for Lau Lau. I think I've mentioned that before. The Lau Lau at Back Home in Lahaina, 916 North Sepulveda Manhattan Beach CA, 310-374-0111 is a huge one filled with delicious pork's. The Lomi Lomi Salmon is a side in a little plastic cup. I poured it onto my rice but it only covered half of it so I only ate half of it. The Lau Lau was one of the largest portions I've ever seen. I also really liked the salad with ramen in it. It reminded of the one we always have at my Auntie Jeanne's who's originally from Oahu. Very delicious and brings back memories.
