A few weeks ago Cam and I went to see a movie at the Arclight and since we were running late we had time to grab something to eat. I wanted to try something different so I got the nachos. Great idea but big mistake. These were enough for three or four people. I don't think I even got through half of this. It had chicken, guacamole, beans (damn it), and other things I can't recall. Even looking at Cam's dish I can not remember what it was. It looked good and she really enjoyed it. I ate so much that I wasn't able to get my popcorn, Milk Dudes, and soda combo. Next time I will stick with regular ass meals.

The other day while running errands Cam suggested we get some Thai food. We thought of King & I aka whatever they are calling themselves this week but I recalled that they close at a weird time and sure enough it was that time. She then said maybe Cuban and my eyes crossed. This is a hard choice. I have wanted Cuban for weeks but once you mention Thai that's all I can think of. So we headed to Natalee Thai which does not happen enough. Here is what we got.

Last weekend Cam, Jen-Jen, and I went to the LA County Fair once again. We had already decided that we would not get on any crazy rides that would cause crotch pain or bruises so we went on a slide. While we didn't get as wild as the last time we did still try some good food. I tried the Krispy Kreme chicken sandwich. Now, this seems like it would not be good especially once we bit into it and it was filled with jelly, but Ill be damned if it wasn't awesome. It was messy as hell and I had to wipe my hand and face after each bite but it was worth it. This is something that I'd try making myself at home...if there was a damned Krispy Kreme anywhere near me!
I also tried the fried Twinkie. It wasn't as mind-blowing as I expected it to be. If it had been crispier I imagine it would have been awesome but I doubt the cream would've stayed inside. They had the option to top it with chocolate or strawberry drizzle. I went with chocolate since strawberry anything can be iffy. This is something I could try making myself and I am sure I'd do it better. Yes. I am saying that I can do something better than people who do it for a living. Handle it. We forgot to get the fried Oreo's and didn't think about it until we had already been there for six hours and was ready to go home. We stopped off at The Counter where I enjoyed a BLT that I ate so fast that I barely remember tasting it. Good times!

A couple of days ago before seeing the new movie Chef with my cousin Mala, Camille warned me not to see it hungry. I'd made that mistake before with Julie & Julia and suffered watching that woman bathe everything in butter while I munched on snuck in sour candies. So before we headed into the Arclight we ate at their cafe where I've never had a bad meal. I got the French dip sandwich with fries and a Sprite. Oh, my god, it was so good. It has crispy bread but it wasn't the kind that hurts when you bite into it. I've had sandwiches where the bread was so hard that I had to take the roof of my mouth to grief counseling afterward. This had a couple of types of cheeses and was made with juicy roast beef. Our waiter was really cool and at the cafe they ask what time your movie starts so they can get your food to you faster. It's great.
Mala got a good looking steak with chimichurri and she switched her side to a Caesar salad. I could tell she liked it by the way her eyes rolled when she cut into it and took a bite. I'll have to try it the next time I go. I'm sure many people skip past this place thinking it is expensive, but let me tell you, it isn't. If you're at the Arclight you are paying $32 for two tickets. They are worth it! The meal was less than $40. It may sound like a lot to some but I don't eat out as often as I used to so spending that much to enjoy a really good meal is more than worth the price. Next time you head to this theater enjoy your meal and a good movie all in one place. They have awesome booths, good service, and if you're feeling saucy you can get one of their adult beverages which are might powerful!
