I spent the majority of this month in LA, which meant I was able to eat some of my favorite foods, and indulge in a few new eateries, too. Luckily for me, January just so happens to be my birthday month, so there was always an excuse for a good meal.
Of course, I kept up my annual tradition of celebrating my birthday with my good friend Janice at Sushi Zo in downtown LA.
I also celebrated my birthday with my fabulous sister-in-law, Rhyan, at a new spot called Cal Mare. This gorgeous restaurant, we indulged in oysters, smashed potatoes and squid ink pasta.
The entire meal was insanely enjoyable–I highly recommend you checking it out!
Work brought me to the eastside, so naturally, I had to stop into their buzzy new breakfast and lunch spot: Pollen.
I easily enjoyed the best matcha latte of my life.
And finally, I stopped by Somi Somi in Koreatown for an epic cone of matcha and milk soft serve.
It tasted just as good as it looks!
