With the close of another year, I look back on the food and drink gone buy. Here are a few of my favorite memories and some observations.
I ate gelato and found praise worthy cups at Bulgarini in Altadena and a great affogato at Gelato Bar in Studio City
I said a sad goodbye to Fassica but found a new Ethiopian star on Fairfax at Little Ethiopia.
Why did it take me so long to go to Chung King? Now I can't stay away.
More good stuff to drink: I explored the worlds of dan cong tea and brandy.
I adopted a sense of humor.
I made cheese!
My favorite new higher end meals of the year were Animal and Bazaar, but be warned that Bazaar is like a really good magic show. The first time you go, you think it's great, but the second time, you're like, "Okay, I've seen that trick before. What else you got?"
I ate great, non-BBQ Korean food at Hanbat Shul-Lung-Tang and Seongbukdong.
I found my new favorite shen jian bao at Dean Sin World/Tastio.
And Mozza2Go opened and delivered their excellent chopped liver to my door.
All in all, a good year for food (and I even lost weight). Let's see what 2010 brings.
