Sue’s Kitchen

23918 Crenshaw Blvd Torrance, CA 90505-5211 (310) 539-1992 For an area that has so many Taiwanese/Chinese people, the South Bay has surprisingly few good Taiwanese places. So if you can’t make it out to the SGV (San Gabriel Valley), this place is definitely worth checking out. Tucked into a generic strip mall on Crenshaw, the […]

lunch at bamboo garden

lunch at bamboo garden Originally uploaded by jadepearli. at least I think it’s called Bamboo Garden. The only signs on the outside are in Japanese, so I’m really not 100% certain. At any rate, this little place is on Cravens Avenue in Downtown Torrance, and it has the best soba noodles around. Made fresh from […]

mm potstickers

so it’s kind of nice that jer is not around for a little while — I’d forgotten how nice silence is, and how nice it is to leave the TV off while you’re at home. I like that there aren’t larger-than-life faces peering at me from out of a giant slate-colored box, shouting at me […]

on ucla parking

I’m putting off writing my paper for my history of american pop music class, so I’m going to rant about UCLA parking for a little while. Parking at UCLA is HORRIBLE. I parked at a failed meter because I was late to class, and I came back to find out that the meter had been […]

Koreatown Clubbing

Le Prive is a club in Koreatown that I kept hearing about. I finally had a chance to go there Saturday night. My impressions: – it’s expensive. our table for 6 cost $200, not including tip. – the drinking is expensive (you only get a bottle of crown) – you do get a nice fruit […]
