ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen Westwood

Today Cam an I went to ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen over in Westwood. The only reason we were over there was for shopping purposes. We wanted to go to The Stand but found out that it is no longer there. Matter of fact, a lot of places aren't in Westwood anymore! Burger King has been replaced with Chik-Fil-A which is awesome and we almost went there. But this random side street had a lot of good places so we went here. I got a beef bowl with jasmine rice, squash, curry, and some green stuff sprinkled on top. This place was started by the Chipotle folks so the set up is all the same. The food was really good but I'd suggest more meat with the food because there is a lot of rice. One bowl is about two dishes so have fun. I'll be heading here again...but to the one on Sunset. Westwood is not a place I like to frequent.

The Counter On Ventura

Today Jen-Jen and I went to The Counter over on Ventura to grab something to eat. She got a burger with fried pickles while I got the sliders. I had never tried them before and knew that I wanted something that wasn't gonna cripple my ass since I knew we would be moving around all afternoon. These little things were really good. They had a pickle, cheese, and onions with fries. I also had a Sprite. Our waitress was good (braids, nice, ass that wouldn't quit) and didn't ask us how the food was while our mouths were full. This was my first time at this location and while it is small it tasted great. Maybe the bigger ones lose something in their size. We sat outside and it was really nice weather today. Just gotta be careful for th crazy hobos on Ventura.
