Yesterday was a special Father's Day since it was the first time in awhile since we all went out to eat together. ๐ŸŽ‰ What better place in the South Bay to splurge a lil than at @elrocotorestaurant . For over a decade friends and family have agreed this is the spot to go to. 

Peruvian food comes in different forms from different origins also and thats why this place hits the spot. 

1. Seco de Cordero - Braised Lamb Shank. The combination of rubbed in seasoning (turmeric, garlic and salt maybe?) along with it being braised but tasted like it was roasted along with their inhouse cilantro beer sauce drizzled on top but still keeping that "robust" taste of the meat. On top of the shank is salsa criolla which gave a contrast of sour acidity and tanginess to metabolize the richness of the meat. Combined with the fullness of the beans and the starchiness of the rice ๐Ÿšโค๏ธ it completes the meal with every bite. 

2. Oxtail Fettuccine - Exactly what it says. Classic creamy fettucine pasta with mushrooms and parmesan cheese ๐Ÿง€ paired with fall off the bone tender oxtails braised in a deep wine sauce. 

3. Arroz con mariscos - Rice simmered in saffron white wine sauce with paprika, salt, garlic chopped bell peppers, infused in the rice with an assortment of shrimp, calamari, scallops and fish with peas. Again with the salsa criollo and squeeze of lemon ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ’ฆ that acidity just matches with the sweet savoury dish. 

4. Fettuccine Huancaina - Stir fry  tenderloin angus with mushrooms similar to drunken peppered steak ๐Ÿฅฉ with less sweetness and more savoury paired with huancaina fettuccine.

@elpolloinkarestaurant has been around for decades now and upon opening up ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ˜ทCalifornia I decided to finally dine in. My usual go to is the one located in Torrance and my usual would by my fave tallarin verde con bistec ๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿ๐Ÿƒ, welp not today! I needed something different, something with a lil kick, just a lil. Picante de mariscos was the meal of the day and it did not disappoint one bit. 

Looking through the sea of cream sauce was perfectly cooked calamari๐Ÿฆ‘, shrimp๐Ÿฆ, filleted fish๐ŸŸ and sliced potatoes๐Ÿฅ” with a slice of egg๐Ÿฅš and and an olive floating on top. My first bite was tangy and sweetness probably from carmelized onions and the aji panca which is a red sweet mild chili pepper paste, spice from the aji amarillo or yellow chili pepper paste that gives it the right heat. Salt, Garlic and maybe cumin was also present to give it that savoury effect. Lastly the cream sauce and thickening agent (cornstarch?) combines all this goodness that brings a surge of flavor together. ๐Ÿ’ฆ perfect with steamed white rice ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ˜ Im mad at myself for not trying this sooner, ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜… this dish is not something to sleep on ๐Ÿคฏ.

Over the weekend I was invited by the crew of @fight4damic podcast to share with them a few my experiences and how i became a foodie. Upon arrival i was greeted with some snacks and some bomb homemade ceviche ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ… ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿ”ฅperfect for the warm ๐ŸŒž Southern California weather. But i didnt come empty handed. Just by coincidence, for Philippines Independence Day ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ I came bearing gifts of Fine Philippine Spirits that i brought over from my previous trips and we sipped and chased them with coke or beer while discussing culture, growing up and most importantly food ๐Ÿ˜„. Thank you again @jimmy_buckets24 @mftrusotru @_actor92 for inviting me to the show, I had a great time ๐Ÿ™ 
And for those interested in listening to the segment they are in the following platforms @applepodcasts @spotify and @iheartradio

On my way home from San Diego I stopped by @mngocafe to cool down with some kakigori๐Ÿจ. Upon arrival i was truely torn between their selection of green tea ๐Ÿต, thai tea, taro๐Ÿ , strawberry cheesecake ๐Ÿฐ, but ultimately i picked one of my favorite fruits, the mango๐Ÿฅญ.
I loved how the snow iced was not overly sweet but had the definite mango fruit flavor. Topped with their house cream sauce which in turn is where the sweetness is underneath that flower is a slice of ripe mango but it doesnt stop there. Various bites also contained mango pudding and cheesecake underneath. Additional mango syrup and condensed milk has been provided to pour on top in order to gauge the right amount of richness, flavor and sweetness ๐Ÿ‘Œ

At spot where i usually have some japanese brew ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿถ and sake, its always nice to enjoy it with some finger food. Our fave is the sashimi carpaccio, specifically hamachi (yellow tail) which is thinly sliced, drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and a sliver of sliced pickled green chili pepper๐ŸŒถ๏ธfor that slight kick and tang. The salmon carpaccio is next with the similar blue print of olive oil and sea salt.  But dont sleep on their yakitori especially since they cook a wide array of meats ๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿฅฉ and seafood๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿ™๐ŸŸ on skewers over binchu charcoal ๐Ÿ”ฅ. If you are more into noodles or rice dishes to accompany your beer they have yakisoba๐Ÿœ, chirashi (seafood rice bowls)๐Ÿ› onigiri๐Ÿ™, sushi ๐Ÿฃ and agemono(fried foods)๐Ÿ—๐Ÿค with rice ๐Ÿš. Finally they have a wide selection of japanese brews even some of my faves along with filtered and unfiltered sakes. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Mama Lu's has been around for a few years now and everyone knows its about the dumplings here primarily xlb's (xiao long bao) aka soup dumplings. There are a handful of spots now in LA to get them but this was the place i remembered after xlb initially hit the scene. 

โ–ช๏ธFirst pic is their spicy wonton. Drenched in chili oil, with chopped scallions, peanuts, cilantro, sesame seeds and in that thin wonton wrapper is a hearty seasoned ground pork. It was to my surprise these initially werent that spicy so there are some different forms of chili pastes ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ and sauces to kick it up a notch.
โ–ช๏ธSecond and Third pic is the XLB or soup dumplings. Outside that steamed doughy encasing is piping hot soup or broth with two variations of filling. Seasoned Ground pork and ground pork with crab. If you like acidity dont forget to use the dark vinegar and other condiments provided. โœ”๏ธ
โ–ช๏ธFourth pic appears to be a humble plate of fried rice, but its not just any fried rice. Salted fish๐ŸŸ and ๐Ÿ— chicken fried rice. With it already being fried on a ๐Ÿ”ฅ flaming seasoned carbon steel wok and given that fried rice ๐Ÿš is cooked with msg, those bits of salted fish in every other bite mixed with the egg and chicken brings the umami to the next level.
โ–ช๏ธFifth pic is a mild soft egg white noodles in like a scallop sauce/gravy which i loved to pair with the fried rice for some reason. I know its not something common to do but this sauce was savoury
โ–ช๏ธAnd for the veggies i opted for the garlic flavored bean (or pea) seedlings which went perfect between entrees as a palate reset but also delicious on its own

Taking a quick field trip to Olvera Street where the City of Los Angeles all began, we decided to have a quick bite to a place arguably where taquitos may have possibly started, @cielitolindola . Aurora Guerrero 1934 started this version of the fried taco dorado using shredded beef (taste like barbacoa) in a rolled corn tortilla.๐ŸŒฝ The result is a crispy, crunchy delicious shell around the hot shredded beef filling drenched in a tangy ๐Ÿ‹citrusy avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ sauce. Paired with a chile relleno with cheese and mild chile colorado๐ŸŒถ๏ธ sauce over frijoles makes this a comforting eggy๐Ÿณ, chile and refried bean union. And although there a many flautas, tacos dorados and taquitos of modern day appeal and creativity this place takes me back to a time when my mom brought me here as a child and i enjoyed those crispy taquitos on the bus ride home.

@justinos_craft_kitchen did it again! I love philly cheesesteaks but this ones different, way different. Its enough to want me to call it an LA cheesesteak because of his twist of ingredients that he uses to complete his work of art. 

At initial bite i immediately recognized the ๐Ÿฅฉ thin ribeye slices reminicent if the thin bulgogi cuts you would normally get at ayce kbbq but instead having the tangy and sweet onions infused into the beef. Melted provolone, one of my favorite cheese was used to keep the beef together while holding this massive sandwich in one hand and also gave a cheesy ๐Ÿง€ slightly smokey flavor. But wait theres more! Hidden inside are treasures of  king oyster mushrooms ๐Ÿ„, if you havent had these mushrooms i encourage you to seek them, they pair beautifully with meats giving it a robust, hearty compliment to the point i can eat these sauteed by itself. And lastly the bread that keeps these quality ingredients together with the help of you grip, the bread. It is like a combo of a bolillo and sourdough but with the airy holes of san franciscan bread perfect for soaking up the juices of beef, onions and his homemade chimichurri, topped and finished with minced green scallions, oh my... ๐Ÿ’ฆ
