Churro Calientes is a small restaurant with seriously delicious Churros and they definitely satisfy a sweet tooth. I highly recommend their Churros con Chocolate. It comes with six classic crispy golden brown churros and a cup of Spanish style homemade rich hot dipping chocolate sauce. The chocolate sauce is so thick, creamy, yet not overly sweet. When you dip the churro into the hot chocolate, it quickly soaks the chocolate up and absorbs all that goodness, Yummy!

Churro Calientes是一家專門賣吉拿棒的小店
他們的吉拿棒絕對可以滿足你的甜點胃
我最推薦他們的Churros con Chocolate
這份裡面有六根炸的金黃酥脆的吉拿棒
和一杯西班牙家庭式的熱巧克力醬
巧克力醬非常的香濃且不會太甜
當你拿吉拿棒去沾巧克力醬,
吉拿棒會吸收滿滿的巧克力醬汁
濃郁的巧克力搭配外酥內軟的吉拿棒超級美味!

這棟建築在1920年代曾是喜劇大師卓別林的辦公室

Kimchi Fried Rice $16

beef short ribs, soft farm eggs, sesame seed, scallions

Flavorful kimchi fried rice with perfectly poached egg. It tasted delicious and definitely has a different kind of taste compare to a typical kimchi fried rice

我滿驚訝這裡有泡菜炒飯
這裡的泡菜炒飯上有兩顆水波蛋
吃之前先攪拌均勻,

吃起來和一般韓國餐廳的泡菜炒飯不一樣
口感比較濕滑, 但調味很到位

Smoked Salmon Tartine $15

This Smoked Salmon Tartine is well presented.  It was refreshing with all the veggies on top and the avocado spread holds everything together.  The smoked salmon was very thick, fresh and high quality.

This place is amazing! Definitely not your average donut. Although the price is slightly higher than donuts elsewhere. Sidecar makes fresh donuts every hour, and there are plenty of flavors to choose from. My favorite is their Maple Bacon. The Maple Bacon is pillowy soft, and after a bite, the yummy donut melted in my mouth. I really enjoy the perfect balance between sweet and savory. Huckleberry is my second favorite; crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The Huckleberry flavor tasted like a fluffy muffin. Give this place a try as fresh & delicious donuts here are amazing.

Sidecar Doughnuts & Coffee標榜「世界上最新鮮的甜甜圈」,每個小時手工現做. 當然價格也比平常我們買的甜甜圈貴. 一個差不多$3-4 美金. 這裡的甜甜圈口味選擇很多, 也會隨著季節推出不一樣的口味. 我最喜歡的是楓糖培根, 一口咬下鬆軟的甜甜圈就在嘴裡化開. 在口中甜鹹相襯超級美味! 我第二喜歡的是 Hunckleberry口味.  這款甜甜圈外酥內軟蓬鬆, 帶有瑪芬的口感. 新鮮出爐的甜甜圈值得一試

Meet Fresh is a franchised dessert place originated from Taiwan. It is best known for their herbal jelly and taro balls. For my visit this time, I ordered a cold herbal jelly#3 which comes with herbal jelly, shaved ice, red bean, peanut, and boba. Before you try it, you should add some cream into it. I love the brown sugar drizzle on the shaved ice, it has just the right amount of sweetness. Price is on the higher side for a typical dessert, but definitely worth it 🙂

印象中小時候鮮芋仙在台灣開的到處都是
但這幾年完全看不到蹤影
反而在大陸和美國看到鮮芋仙
我點了它們的Herbal Jelly No.3
裡面有紅豆, 花生, 珍珠
最底下有淋了黑糖的銼冰
這一碗要價$7美金, 價位偏高
但在美國吃到台灣甜點很是覺得很值得

Cauldron Ice Cream is famous for their ice cream on a puffle cone. The puffle cones are Hong Kong egg waffles which are soft and chewy. It is a must try if it is your first time here.  Their ice cream is made right in front of you with stand mixers and nitrogen. The rose shaped ice cream was well presented. As for flavors, I tried their earl grey lavender; strong in flavor and topped with honey.

Tips: you can ask for rose shaped in any flavors

Their thick cut, double fried Belgian style fries were heavenly like and a must-order when you come here! They were crispy and are seasoned very well. They offered a variety of dipping sauces for the fries, and My favorite was the chipotle aioli!

Overall This place has a relaxing atmosphere which is suited for grabbing a beer, fries, and sausage with friends.

While I have always enjoyed the combination of chicken and waffle. The chicken and waffle at Bruxie brought it to another level. Their original fried chicken waffle sandwich is on the lighter side. The waffle is crispy, and the chicken is tender and juicy with the right amount of syrup added to it. The cabbage slaw is fresh and refreshing. It’s just so delicious! Do not forget to add fries+drink to your sandwich! Their strawberry lemonade was refreshing and a good compliment to the sandwich.

炸雞+鬆餅一直是我很喜歡的組合
Bruxie的炸雞鬆餅三明治讓我驚艷
它們的版本比較清爽
焦香酥脆的鬆餅, 多汁的炸雞,
再搭配上剛好的糖漿和新鮮高麗菜
超級美味!
記得升級為套餐, 就有方格薯條+飲料
推薦他們的草莓檸檬汁
非常的清爽, 很適合搭配三明治
