Urspace@Temple City ★★★

One of the Best Uni Pasta I have ever had. It's kind of pricey, but it's very creamy and yummy. The pasta is cooked in chicken broth, which makes it even more flavorful. Raw Egg and Black Caviar on top complete it. Definitely worth a try for Uni lovers. Uni Bun was nice. Lobster Benedict is pretty good too. Drinks can get pricey, but you get 15% off with Yelp check-in.

25 Degrees@Hollywood ★★

Nice Burger. Great selection of draft beer. Can do 1/2 Sweet Potato Fries (my fav) with 1/2 French Fries with no extra charge. The fries portion are so generous that they come with a togo box. Make sure that you take them home. #1 Burger is good but not outstanding. I would try other Burgers next time. Oh, FYI the Ranch Sauce costs a dollar. Opens 24 hours and walking distance from El Capitan Theatre. Great for late night post-show dinner.

#1 Burger $13
caramelized onion, crescenza, prelibato gorgonzola, bacon, arugula, thousand island

Jiro Sukiyabashi@Tokyo ★★★

Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Sushi of a Lifetime to Die for... 2 Michelin Stars by the son of Jiro. Each piece carefully hand-crafted with every attention to detail possible with the freshest fish from the seafood market. Speechless. Full Omakase with Sashimi was about 30,000 yen ($250 USD) per person. There's so much food that I think just the sushi without the appetizer will be enough.
