Food Research in Los Angeles : Day 3
Day 3 We visited the local food truck event hold at Smorgasburg area.
At the event, I tried dirty chai ☕️ (sooo yum!!!), Berry donut with fried chicken 🍗🍩 and onigiri rice balls 🍙! Yes, Japanese food! The fillings were a little bit different. I mean, they were localized.

Day 2 started with healthy breakfast ordered via Uber eats. I ordered vegan donut , Almond croissant , Ceviche with cauliflower, Karaage with creamy butter-milk sauce and Almond milk coffee. Some are new flavor for me so it was so fun and meaningful.
Then, driving time!
Food Research in Los Angeles : Day 1
It’s time to go overseas to do “food research”!!!
My family and I visited LA for half holiday and half “food research” last week. In the airplane, I booked “Low carbohydrate meal” for me and “Child meal” for my son. You can choose various meals from ANA’s website in advance.

– Green tea 🍵
Strawberry Roll Cake
Strawberry roll cake 🍓 Perfect for Saturday afternoon. ☕️😊
There are many way of eating Ramen. Usually people imagine that ramen is a soup with egg noodles inside. This is the traditional style. I went to the Tsuke-men style ramen restaurant the other day. Tsuke-men is dipping noodle dish in Japanese.
Zucchini and eggplant with plum paste
These days, I make a lot of pickles at home. My favorite pickles are “Zucchini and eggplant with plum paste”. (Front one in this photo) For this dish, I like to put Japanese basil on top. Japanese basil, we call shiso, has amazing minty smell and flavor. First, thinly slice zucchini and eggplant and steam for few minutes with pinch of salt. Then, put plum paste (without seeds) and mix well. Finally, season with sesame oil and a little bit of say sauce. Please try it out!
Normal weekend breakfast
Weekend has come! My family loves to eat pancake on weekend. (Mario and Luigi even taste small portion of pancake.) I always enjoy experimenting and adding new seasonings to create new flavors. This day, I tried matcha flavor pancake topped with Kinako (=soybean powder) and Kuromitsu (=brown sugar syrup) and the vegetables pancake with sweet corn and pumpkin inside. Oh, I like the simple pancake with butter and maple syrup as well. Happy weekend!
