My Birthday at Little Tokyo
My friend and I had quite a hard time locating the place as it’s not that noticeable from a distance, add to it the fact that it was raining that night *laughs*
First stop was Kagura, an okonomiyaki restaurant.
Photo-whoring while waiting for the drinks and okonomiyaki :)
I love the fact that you can watch them cooking your food and that they are hardcore baseball fan (baseball figures and clippings all over the place). Also, on their TV I had a glimpse of a .Hack// commercial. AWESOME.
And here comes our food and drink. Four seasons and okonomiyaki. I can’t believe okonomiyaki’s that heavy! I’ve only eaten half of it and I was already full >.<
Next stop was Hana. I heard great reviews about their Kakigori (flavored shaved ice) and takoyaki so I wanted to try it. They weren’t exaggerating.
This is my super fave from all the foods we ate. I’d go back just for this refreshing Kakigori. Super Love!
The best takoyaki I’ve tasted. We were’t able to eat all these since we’re already full from okonomiyaki so we had it take-out. I ate it as soon as I woke up. Goodness!
Before going home, we stooped by the Japanese mini-grocery store (also within the Little Tokyo compound).
Look what we found! A condiment (?) in a panda packaging! My friend gets easily attracted to anything panda-ish. She loves panda. I think I’ve mentioned “panda” many times already. Ok, I’m shutting up. HAHA.
(Also, I look super pale here. That’s why I call it “My Edward Cullen-ized Pichur”.)
And last but not the least, more photo-whoring.
It was a great birthday experience :)
