Uncle Tetsu Japanese cheesecake (Santa Anita Mall)

The time has come to try the famous uncle tetsu Japanese cheesecake! There was no line on a Monday afternoon. The pie is delicious! The first bite was soft and creamy. Absolutely delicious! The cakes are made fresh from the oven. The cake was still warm when I took a bite! I would say the […]

Tastunoya Ramen (old town Pasadena)

Tastunoya has made its way to Old town Pasadena! This is my second visit at this location and the service has improve since my last visit.  The restaurant closes in between for lunch and dinner, so best to wait before it opens. The restaurant does not maintain a waitlist instead they take the next customers […]

They specialize in soy sauce or […]

What’s Up Men (Fullerton)

Men Oh Ramen : New kid on the block
