Ruen Pair (Los Angeles)

Ruen Pair (Los Angeles)

Hello,

I was lucky to go back to my old stomping grounds recently and decided to get some yummy Thai food in Thai town. My old high school friend introduced me to this place years ago and I think to thank him every single time I get a chance to come back. It has to be one of the best Thai places I’ve ever been to. So go there and try it out if you can.


Whenever I go out to eat, if there is soup on the menu I must get it at all costs.…

Tops!

Tops!

My car took me to Tops recently in Pasadena and I just had to post my discoveries. There is a growing debate amongst my family between The Hat or Tops and after this experience, I am siding with the Tops contingent. Let me explain why.

Kobe beef dip sandwich. If you like french dip sandwiches, what happens when you substitute the beef with kobe beef? You get a sandwich with kobe beef! That’s what. No vegetables, no fancy condiments, just straight forward bread, kobe, and dipping sauce. The portion was a pretty decent size.…
