Desserts First

There are two things my close friends can tell you about me.
First is I should be the last person you should ask for directions. I'm working on that.
Thank you Navigon on my iPhone.
Second, I will skip the actual meal if chocolate desserts are involved.

Amado and I started our Sunday like how any dessertaholics would.
He's been dying to try out a dessert place in Downtown LA called The Pie Hole.


How can you not want to check out the place with a name like that?

Of course I got something with chocolate, Mexican Hot Chocolate pie.
Would love to figure out the recipe for this.

Amado ordered the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan pie.
He judges pies by how good it holds up if you eat it by hand.
Yeah, he ate it like a slice of pizza.

After devouring our desserts, we walked around the shops in Little Tokyo.
We had one more item left on our holiday gift list and it was the only place we can get it done.
Can't post it yet until after the holidays but I really hope they like it.

A few bags later, we checked out a Japanese restaurant that Amado had in mind, Fat Spoon.
Our friend Makoy recommended the place a couple of months back but we never got around
to trying it until now.
The Pork Cutlet Curry and Uni and Mushroom pasta were flavorful.

I really like the ambiance of the place. Very mellow and minimal.
Total opposite compared to its next door neighbor, Daikokuya.
This one is definitely worth checking out.


Hmm, can you say Facebook Timeline photo?!
