My last week in Los Angeles was spent with awesome friends revisiting great food and trying out new ones.
I met JD for the last time a few days before my flight, since he was spending the following days in Mexico, starting from a few hours after our lunch. We wanted to go down to Father’s Office, but realised when we got there that it was closed. Nooooo! We’d already paid for street parking though, so we decided to find something down the road in Santa Monica. Decided to give R+D Kitchen a try, and it turned out to be an amazing find.
JD was so excited to see Chimay on the menu that he had to get one for me. In that chalice. XD
Also, JD decided to give me a treat! Thank you JD!!
Here’s a video of roadside imbibement:
After lunch with JD, it was almost immediately back out to Yamato with the apartment girls. Yamato is a Japanese restaurant located in an iconic (and possibly historical) building in the heart of Westwood Village, with high arches and this gem:
We chose from the Happy Hour Menu:
And then it was off to Sweet Rose Creamery in Brentwood, a short drive away, for gelato that the girls adore. They’d brought me there before, when I first moved in. I love the naked baby icon!
Two days later, we had brunch at Blu Jam, a rather popular place in Melrose. It was my first time at the cafe, and was anticipating the food that garnered such a long waiting line on a Sunday morning.
And then it was off to my second visit to MILK, highly popular dessert place and home to the most amazing giant ice cream macarons.
I’m going to miss them and these. ♥
