Fat Tour 2014 Part 2

Today me and J. did another Fat Tour (click here for part one). We knew that we were gonna head to Glazed again because bacon donuts. That's all I need to say. So we were trying to figure out what to eat. I am always bad at this unless I am craving something very specific. When I hang out with J. she likes to try things she hasn't before so I suggested Noodles Station Thai Street Food aka @Bangkok aka King & I. So we head over there and J. says “Is that the place with the closed sign?” I jumped out the car and saw that they were closed from 3:30pm to 5pm. What?!

We were gonna go to this new sandwich place on Melrose when J. started talking about a place at The Grove when I realized...Wood Ranch Bar & Grill! I haven't been to this place in probably two years. So we got there and there was a ton of parking which is super rare. We got a table quickly and ordered. We both got the strawberry lemonades. I only had two because I'm watching my figure. Ha!

Food Fair By Diego

The other day when hanging out with Cam she asked what I wanted to grab for lunch. As we walked downstairs I told her that I would know by the time we got to her car. I decided on Food Fair By Diego which we had been to once before. This place is really good though there isn't much parking since there are like three other places in that small lot. We pulled in and got a spot right out front and as we waited for our food to arrive I stared at the paintings of big naked women and wondered why they named the place this. It is a bad name. Great food. But that name doesn't stick. I think I called it Food Land or Food Stand. So I ordered and sat down drinking some bomb ass lemonade while Cam got a tea/lemonade mix. It is real lemonade by the way.

I got a cheeseburger and fries while I think Cam got a turkey burger with a side of beets with almonds. We both really enjoyed our burgers. The fries were just as good as they were the last time we were there. Her beets, I didn't try. I will not even attempt to try those things. She thought they were okay. Not great, but okay. I told her that it looked like candy or that it appeared like it would be sweet. She said it kinda was. If you are ever in that area and don't want to deal with all the nonsense that comes with trying to eat at the Grove give it a try. Just call beforehand because they have very weird hours. We got there after 2pm and they closed at 3pm.

Noodles Station Thai Street Food

After the hike that almost killed me, Cam called me later that evening and asked if I wanted to go to dinner. At first I suggested Pinche's. Then I thought of this place we went to for my birthday a few years back called Shin but Cam is smart and told me to check if they were still open. They weren't. So I thought of how good @Bangkok formerly King & I was so we went there. When we arrived we saw a sign that said Noodles Station Thai Street Food and we panicked. Was this a new place? Were they gone?! No. They just changed their name once again.

Please stop that.

We started with the chicken wontons which were not on the menu anymore. I am not sure why they'd leave it off and only show a vegetarian version. We had to ask if they still made them an it turns out they do. These things are incredible and need to be back on the menu where you can see them.

The return of Cam and her attacking hand!
