One of the best things about visiting parents is all the good food I get to eat:)
I think it’s especially good in the LA suburbs (east away from LA), cos not only is it good, it’s CHEAP, which gives me a sense of satisfaction to go with the food:D
On Saturday, for lunch, we went to this restaurant called Home Style in Monterey Park (both are guesses, actually:p). They have this fried dungeness crab with deep fried garlic dish for $1.99/pound. This crab was about 3 lbs, so this whole dish cost $5.99. You can’t buy crab for that much even if you wanted to deal with the frying of the garlic and the crab. And it’s oh so delicious. Well crab is yummy anyhows, but them garlic pieces are delectable.
Yut’s fave, Salt and Pepper Shrimp. We were thinking about the fish tails from the grilled fish at kaiseki and the shrimp tails from this or tempura, and Yut had this brilliant idea where they take these crunchy shrimp and fish tails and package them as a salty snack. Wow, would that sell! Although we would probably buy some to try at least, I don’t know if anyone else would.
On Sunday, our nephew came over. He’s 2 and sooo cute. He made Yut get his tricycle and chase him (on his train thing) around the backyard. Pretty funny stuff:) He’s tireless and wore Yut out completely. Everyone else sat around enjoying the spectacle.
Was fun, but I’m glad to be home.
