The Stand

Yesterday me and my heterosexual life mate Alex from The DNA Show went to The Stand in Westwood. They should call it "The Last Stand" because Westwood is damn near a ghost town now! I wanted to head to Chile’s but its gone now. Yeah. Gone! I only got to go there like two times. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to Olive Garden when I know  places like Red Lobster exists. Anyhoot, we went to The Stand and I got a burger and fries with a Coke. There was only one other occupied table so saying the service was fast would be redundant. Their burgers are great and the fries were perfectly made. For about $8 you will be crippled by the size of the food. Go now before its gone too.

Omi Sushi

In my adventures in my neighborhood, meaning I finally realized that I could eat sushi without going as far as I was, I checked out this place pretty much across the street called Omi Sushi. I have walked past this place hundreds (if not thousands) of times and never went inside. I ordered the same thing as I always do and when I go someplace new. Shrimp tempura. Wow, this place is good! Cheaper than Yoshi Sushi or Sushi Cat, larger portions, and they also include fried fruit with sweet sauce. Their wasabi portions were also good. I love wasabi! If you’re ever in my neighborhood we’re going to Omi Sushi. I also need to point out that the staff is really nice and courteous.

Yoshi Sushi

Today I went to this place called Yoshi Sushi here in West Hollywood. As some of you may know, I hated sushi for years. The fact that I even eat it now is still amazing and brand new to me. Last year Ms. J. took me to this place, I believe in Pasadena, and I was shocked that I liked it so much. Since then I have kinda become addicted. At work I was going to Sushi Cat at least twice a week. Oh, I am so glad to find a new place right up the street that tastes so good! Yoshi Sushi is close, fast, and really good. Damn, it was big too! I got my go-to sushi dish of shrimp tempura. I enjoyed it and will be there again soon enough. So happy I went there!

The Bungalow

Today I went to Larchmont with Ms. E for our very first hang out and we went to this place called The Bungalow. I had been to Larchmont once before but not to this place. Oh, it was so good. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was easy going and not all haggard and stressed like most morning staffs are (McDonald’s, I’m looking at you!).

I got the Cobb Omelet which consisted of a gigantic ass omelet stuffed with bacon, chicken, sliced avocado on top, and a big side of potatoes. Oh, it was so good. Seriously, every single bite was good. And the bacon wasn’t that Canter’s type bacon that’s small and hard. The chicken was good as well. For a drink I got an Arnold Palmer with green tea. Never had one with green tea and was super surprised at how good it was.

Kinda pricey but I didn’t have to eat another meal for almost twelve hours after going here. Ms. E had a got a seafood omelet that was good too. I say give this place a try. But expect to be full. Oh, and before I forget, they have this red and blue velvet cake that I have to try the next time I head to The Bungalow.

Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles

Yesterday I went to Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles with Miss H. It was so damned fun! This is the third time I have been here. This was the Hollywood location, which was twice, and I went to the Pico one once and that wasn’t all that fun. I got the chicken (of course) and waffles with a side of potato salad, and an Arnold Palmer to drink. We sat there for like an hour and just got to talk and enjoy some great food. We went in the middle of the day and it was easy to get a seat. No wait and the waitress was really fast and nice.


Last week I went to this place called Yogurtland with my DNA Show partner, Alex. This spot is at the Beverly Connection and I doubt I ever would’ve gone here if he hadn’t suggested it. I got this awesome one with vanilla bean yogurt, pistachio yogurt, topped with Nutter Butter bits, cheesecake bits, and cookie dough to finish it off. Whatever health I could’ve gotten from this was now removed. Alex got…free samples until he was full. You get a cup,  fill it up, and then pay. Pretty damn cheap as well. And you should go just to watch the polarization of customers. Really big people and really small people. But don’t sit near the door. They have one of those air shooting doors and I am shocked the smaller chicks didn’t blow away. Oh, and we saw a guy that was dressed like a beach goer from the 40’s!
