Watdongmoonlek Noodle (Los Angeles)

Watdongmoonlek Noodle (Los Angeles)

I’m originally from Los Angeles. When I go back home to get Thai food it tends to be at places in Thai town, like Palms, Ruen Pair, or Jitlada. But there’s a new player in town. Watdongmoonlek has entered the rotation. It isn’t a new restaurant, but it is for me since we just discovered it this year!

One might get excited walking into a place like this. Hopefully the hipster vibe wasn’t just a front for mediocre food. But good food answers all questions in my book.

A lot of things peaked my interest on the menu.  …

A second Richard Walker’s Pancake House has opened its doors in La Jolla recently. The first San Diego location resides in downtown. We tried the downtown location years back and I honestly don’t remember too much about it, other than it could have been part of Taste of Downtown. They also have two other locations in Illinois, where the family business originally started.

They boast a spacious interior or if you prefer to dine in the sunshine, you can do so outside in the patio.

We stumbled upon Werewolf after a visiting Canadian friend raved about her experience. Her story involved a great time, tasty food, happy hour specials, and 66% off. We’d be happy with all of those individually, but all at once? This was too good to be true. An immediate investigation had to commence.

The bar up front when you walk in is simple, with flat screens lined up for your viewing pleasure. However, what follows throughout the bar/restaurant is sensory overload in the best sense possible.

Cucina Basilico – Italian Restaurant San Diego

Cucina Basilico – Italian Restaurant San Diego

Apologies for being MIA recently, but it’s been a bit crazy with the arrival of my newest baby and also moving houses!  I’m almost settled in though… whew.  🙂

Anyhow, I wanted to just share this with you quickly since it’s one of my better finds in the last few months.  Cucina Basilico just opened up about a month ago and immediately we could tell it was something special.  The key here is that the pasta is FRESH, AUTHENTIC, and AL DENTE!  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
