Frida Tacos@Melrose ★★

I think I like Fish Taco better than Meat Taco, but Fish Taco is always pricier than any Meat Tacos... You get a little bit of everything in the Combination Platter (a Taco, an Enchilada, and a Tamale), but too bad you can't choose Fish Taco for the Combination Platter. I like their Tamale. I also like their name play of the restaurant. Frida Tacos rhymes with Frida Khalo.

Cheng Can Cook: Homemade Sushi ★★★

Introducing My Newest FoodArt Creation - Dragon Eye. Also here's my all time favorite - Hong Kong Style California Rolls. The difference between the Hong Kong Style and American ones is that Hong Kong Style has Cucumber and Masago, which enhance the flavor by far.
