Avenue Q and LA Rose Cafe

Last Saturday Amado and I spent the day in LA.
Something we never mind doing is taking the subway.
I really wish it public transportation in LA was the same as New York's.
I love how everything was so accessible by subway.

 Hollywood and Vine Metro Station


We got to Pantages just a couple of minutes before the show started.
I would love to shoot inside the Pantages.
Someday...

Yeah, we were way up there!
But we still enjoyed the show.

After the show, we hopped back on the train for an early dinner.
Our friends have been telling us about LA Rose Cafe.
I love how the place is not overwhelming like other Filipino restaurants.
Clean and minimalistic.

The owner came out to greet us and we chatted for a few minutes.
He knew who my friends were by name.
I came back after a few days with a friend and one of the servers
greeted me by my first name and asked "Where's Amado?"
That's what you call good customer service.

Ok enough rambling.
FOOD!
Amado got the beef mechado.
The sauce was just right, not too strong despite the consistency.
I think they used stock instead of water.

I got the pork adobo.
Very tender. I really love how it looks so clean.
Definitely a place to bring someone who's never tried filipino food before.

Love love love their Dark Chocolate Cheesecake.
The cheesecake itself is not too sweet. Smooth texture.
The caramel sauce completes the dessert.

I really enjoy the days where we get to do things like this.
We're usually running around on weekends and don't get to relax.
