Let me close this year with an homage to my addictions (whether hole in the wall or not):
-Thank you Savoy for your Hainan chicken and rice. I hope to eat it more than once this 2010.
-Thank you Kogi for the innovation and the creativity that is Mexi-Korean. It is the pioneer in you that really made me interested in chasing your truck and craving it every week. Thank you for parking in Eagle Rock, it does make my satisfaction a much easier conquest.
-Thank you Coral Reef. It may not be in my blog but it has become a recent favorite for a VERY cheap lunch location. Ow those pork chops are just the death of me. Keep it away or keep them coming-the dilemma.
-Thank you Rambos for being there when we need a late night meal, status post alcoholic bouts.
-Thank you Gyu Kaku for our happy hour moments and the cheap beer, can’t beat paying a .99c for a glass. And the food is not that bad either, bbq and beer=fun.
-Thank you Full House (Arcadia) for my dimsum fixes. As soon as I start trembling, you were never too busy for me and always satisfying.
-Thank you Din Tai Fung for your handmade dumplings. You many not be cheap but you are definitely good. Your steamy containers will forever haunt me in my dreams.
-Thank you Tofu Village. Another cheap place that serves me some good comfort food. Soondubu and your dollar domestic beers are always a good find for early HH moments. I wonder when will you have cold noodles again?
-Thank you Conrad’s for always being patient in accommodating the tennis team. It may not have the best of food but it has been the connecting point of many conversations and controversy. The half fried chicken’s not that bad either.
Ooooo, I have so much more to be thankful for. I may not have mentioned it but I will find a way to honor your greatness by continuously supporting you and eating my way through the menu of your establishment.
Goodbye 2009 and Hello 2010. I shall have more offerings, I hope. I’ll wipe my salivating palate and type away my satisfied belly once more this coming year. Ahhhh….what can i say? This is my life with food.
