Dr. Robbin Restaurant!!

9 Jul

This restaurant located in Los Angeles specializes in foods with no added MSG, no sugar, no butter and less oil in which I was interested in trying. When I first passed by this restaurant I thought it was a skin care shop of some sort but surprisingly the space inside is very clean and comfortable. There menu includes mostly classic salads, pizzas, pastas, & soup!! They also have a dessert menu which I have yet to try. My favorite dish was the Pumpkin soup which was super tasty!! Made with whole pumpkin it’s so unique. πŸ˜‰

Chicken protein salad!! Very fresh and the dressing was great.

This restaurant is located in Hollywood inside the Mondrian Hotel. Elegant atmosphere with great views. The last time I dined here was about a year ago and I noticed that they downsized their portions. They are known for their calamari salad but honestly I was a bit disappointment with this dish. It tasted better before from what I remember and it’s only about half the size. They also took the plantains off their menu which I thought was odd being that this is a Cuban restaurant. The Rib Eye was probably my favorite dish. Cooked to perfection. It was quite delicious. πŸ˜‰
Started off the night with a mojito which was excellent!!

Cafe Concerto!!

14 Jun

Located in Los Angeles in the heart of Korea town this place is a real gem. This cafe offers great ambiance, great food and great service!! The decor is beautifully done. They offer a great tapas menu & their pizzas and pastas are excellent. The prices are a bit higher than some of the cafe’s in Korea town but well worth the money for the quality of the food & desserts. They also offer a full bar with a nice selection of wine and desserts such as macaroons, tarts, & cupcakes. Their freshly made cupcakes & macaroons are by far my favorite. You must try their Mocha and Red velvet cupcakes along with the milk & jasmine macaroons. πŸ˜‰
