Last night I was craving something sweet so Bear and I went to Somi Somi because they have the best ice cream dessert in Los Angeles.
I had never walked into the Koreatown location before. Tyler and Bear got it for me last time while I waiting in the car. The Irvine Spectrum location was clean and acceptable.
When I walked in, I couldn’t believe the filth. The floors were disgusting and there were strawberries on the floor. I wanted to grab a napkin and pick it up before someone stepped on it but I realized there were more than one and it’d be weird if I started to pick up stuff off their floors.
When we got to the register, I noticed more filth all across their counter. As we waiting by the window for our ice cream, I also noticed the fish pieces that were being cut all over everything. I couldn’t help but take a video and feel disgusted by their establishment.
After getting our ice cream, as we were walking out, I noticed the strawberry on the floor closest to the exit door (the first strawberry I saw) was stepped on. Bear had just handed me a bunch of napkins for our treat so I used it to pick up the strawberries. I went to the overflowing trash bin to throw it away.
As we were walking back to the car, I grabbed my spoon to eat the ice cream and at that moment, I forgot how disgusting Somi Somi was because their ice cream is so good.
Bear also mentioned that the AC was not turned on… “why is an ice cream place so hot inside” was his comment. Very true…
All in all, the place is a pig sty however the ice cream is so good that I forget how gross it is and is willing to come back next time I’m craving ice cream.
It’s almost torturous… I must go through hell to enjoy such a delectable treat!
Met my gf TA and STL for some HH. Korean chicken wings are the best. This place was tasty, didn’t get to order everything I wanted but it’s okay cause I’ll be back!
We ordered elote and I loved that it came on the cobb but the server shaved it off for us! Every single corn!
Bear raved about it from him last visit to the Staples Center. I was unimpressed. Moving on.
What I love about eating in groups is that I end up trying thing I’d never order myself.
I never used to get artichoke on my pizza and or grill artichokes at a restaurant. With my Babes Who Dine crew, we always order grilled artichokes and I’ve gotten accustom to the flavor and enjoy it very much. I decided to get it on my pizza last time at Blaze at the outlet and now it’s my go to topping.
I like to stick to veggie toppings lately… today is mushroom, onion and artichoke. The pepperoni side is Bear’s.
Probably the best appetizer I’ve have in a while. My MIL smoked the salmon herself!
She used the Big Green Egg to smoke it in the backyard then followed the directions in the recipe below.
We both agreed that it could’ve used less salmon and more cheese, onions and radish.
If you’re still celebrating, try this dish out, and if not… it’s still great for any gatherings!
This was the one of the places that was recommended by several people. The line was ridiculous every time we went by, luckily we were able to get a box of pastries. My favorite was the
elephant trunk lobster tail. The cream was the best part, the pastry itself was a bit hard and ripped the roof of my mouth… however, I managed to finish the entire thing.
