My Favorite Porridge Restaurant in Los Angeles

Mountain Cafe 3064 W. 8th St. Los Angeles, CA 90005 (213) 487-7615 (Abalone Porridge – $8.25) – Abalone and rice chowder.  I have to say this is the best porridge house in Korea town Los Angeles,hands down. For those days you can’t chew due to your new braces (i.e. like me they hurt so bad right now), or even if you are sick and can’t eat. The abalone porridge (전복죽) from Mountain Cafe (aka 산) has so much flavor especially when eaten together with seasoned jorim beef (장조림) & their signature kimchi (김치) 😍 The restaurant itself is very small and…

Starting the New 2016 Year with a Fitness Plan

01/04/2016 Hi Guys! I know I have been gone for a long long time. I actually decided to stop blogging in 2015, but with the new 2016 year coming up, I really wanted to start back at it. This time blogging more as a diary to record progress and memories this new year has to hold. First matter of business, New Year Resolutions! Yeah, yeah, they usually all fail. We’ve all been and done that before. But the key to succeeding in your goals is to create a plan and making sure you stick with it no matter what. This…

The Cliff Restaurant & Laguna Beach

The Cliff Restaurant 577 South Coast Highway, in Laguna Village, Laguna Beach, California Phone: (949) 494-1956 Laguna beach is one of my favorite places to be. Places like Huntington or Seal Beach are so dull and dirty looking. Where as Laguna actually has pretty clear water with really nice scenic views. The highway PCH long the side give a nice drive and view. I absolutely love how if you drive a little farther down past newport towards laguna, there are far less people on the beach. We were practically on the beach alone. Which is how I like it. Quiet…

Fig & Olive on Melrose Place

Fig & Olive 8490 Melrose Place West Hollywood, CA 90069 310-360-9100 Let me start off with the ambiance of this place. I went during lunch with a friend on a Saturday. The atmosphere was light and airy. The restaurant was nicely lit from the natural sunlight outside and there were lots of well dressed people. To me it seemed like a good place for a nice date with a significant other, or a fun gossip brunch place with your girls. The staff are incredibly friendly and the service itself was great. We sat down and were given some bread with…

Meal Prep Log

I know, its already March but losing all the extra weight from the Holiday Season was really quite difficult. They say looking good is 80% of your diet and only 20% exercise. Here are some twists of recipes that I used for a unique and delicious meal prep. A whole weeks worth of meal prep. Some people can eat the same thing everyday, but I’m one of those people that CANNOT eat the exact same thing over and over. To avoid that, I incorporated different recipes and cooking styles. For the “main course” I did a mix of Lemon Pepper Chicken…

Sweet tastes of Warm Fall

Hey guys! It’s been so hot lately in California… but it is technically fall and I can’t start to explain how much I LOVE fall fashion! Keep up the fall fashion trends by wearing a long cardigan (Forever21). I kept my dress short so that I didn’t sweat from all this heat. Topped it off with a big black floppy Urban Outfitters hat to keep the sun out of my face, and wore a Royal Blue Zara purse for a pop of color! I accessorized with a Kukui Nut Necklace that I had bought from Waikiki, Hawaii to finish off this look.…
