My first stop after getting out of horrendous LAX traffic: Irvine.
Sit at the sushi bar at Taiko and tell the chef what you want. The sushi there was amazingly fresh and I loved everything we ate! Very affordable too.
At the Irvine Spectrum Center:
Check out Honey & Butter and their unique macaron flavors!
The matcha one was so good!
Right inside the same shopping center is Hello Kitty Cafe.
We drove to Laguna Beach, just in time for sunset.
Stumbled upon a wedding shoot!
Back to LA…
Fat Sal’s — I love that everything here is “fat” and it’s good to be fat. My fat sandwich had cheesesteak, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, crisp bacon, fried eggs, fries, mayo, ketchup, etc. How could you resist?! Best sandwich ever. Also got the milkshake but it was too thick to sip.
We headed over to LACMA to take pictures with the “Urban Lights”. If you’re only there for this outdoor exhibition, you can just park your car temporarily right outside where the signs are. We didn’t know this and looked for parking forever.
