Dinner with David at Pho 999 in Van Nuys

The other night, I had a lovely dinner at one of my favorite Vietnamese spots: Pho 999 in Van Nuys.

Here’s one of the reviews from Los Angeles Citisearch:

Forget the $9.00/bowl chi-chi hipster junk and try this authentic little joint. The extensive menu offers much more than just pho and the meals are true-to-form with a distinctly Vietnamese taste (as opposed to a more Americanised or Pan-Asian spin). The noodle bowls and hot seafood dishes are a treat. And although I have yet to try it, the “Beef 7 ways” meal is offered for those into the more elaborate end of the menu. I’ve been coming here for years and it’s always consistently outperformed the competition in town.

Although this place gets mixed reviews, I just love how comforting the food tastes for me. We did tried their “7 courses of beef” menu once and it was ok, but I end up ordering the same thing each time, as you will see in the video. The food is delicious, cheap and we used to go there almost once a week and never got tired of it. To me, that says a lot.

So…check out my first posted cellphone flick (shakey, but I am going to get better!) and meet David, my former boyfriend.

Pink’s Hot Dogs

Not to far from Paramont Studios in Los Angeles is Pink’s Hot Dogs. The distance between Paramont Studios and Pinks is less than a mile. Pink’s Hot Dog Stand has been in the same location since 1939. Pink’s is historical by all means for just not its location to Hollywood Studios but also for its hot dogs.

French Crepe Co. & Farmers Market

One can go to Farmers Market in West Los Angeles and find many great restaurants to eat at. I recently ate at The French Crepe Co. They have two locations, but I prefer to eat at the Farmers market for nostalgia, historic value and for a possible celebrity sighting. One may get a chance to see such celebrities as Garret Morris, Vince Vaughn, Chris Rock, Frankie Munoz, Sean Continue reading

If you are into Mexican food and want to sit down at a nice restaurant, I would recommend El Cholo Restaurant. It’s located south of Koreatown in the Country Club Park of Los Angeles. The cross streets are 11th and Western Avenue. The atmosphere, pricing and food are the best.El Cholo Restaurant is also proud of the USC and Cal State Los Angeles sports team.

Fun with hats and scones…an afternoon with my teenage daughter.

A few weeks ago, when my daughter was down visiting, she asked me one cold and dreary afternoon if we could go for High Tea. I thought that would be a grand idea, and the trusty internet lead us on an adventure for the afternoon! Take a look and see what happened…

What is this thing called Pho’?

I have always been a lover of the Vietnamese soup called Pho’(pronounced “FUH”). I ate it when I was on a dating my husband at the time, who by the way is native Vietnamese. He taught me what to add as far as condiments and how to enjoy this wonderfully fragrant and tasty soup.

If I can’t make it to “Little Saigon”(Westminister), Alhambra or El Monte for this delicious soup Continue reading
