Already the new year, and yet, I have not written about a single restaurant adventure. Sadly, there are dining experiences from as far back as early September of last year! I suppose that’s what happens when weddings, lemons, babies, Holidays, and football interrupt one's real (blogging) life. ;)
I have to remind myself that I’m not a total loser whose only activity during the day is the stroll of a draining three paces between the setup of my laptop and peripherals on the dining room table a.k.a. the “office,” and the tiny alcove that the landlord thinks he can charge for a full "kitchen" because it's outfitted with a stoven and refrigerator. Yes, I actually do venture outside the house every once in a while to eat lunch and dinner out (whether I actually take a shower and put on “clothes” is a different story).
Proof: Reviews in Five Words or Less (RiFWoL™) of five restaurants from 2005, with full stories after the station identification.
Antica Pizzeria, Marina Del Rey (Neapolitan pizza) – Too: much prosciutto, little service
Nizam, Westwood (Indian) – Pricey, good, no need return.
Tuk Tuk Thai, Pico/Roberston (Thai) – Chewy rice, overly sweet tofu.
Wilshire, Santa Monica (California) - Mob-scene for drinks. Skip food.
Tanino, Westwood (Italian) – Condescension? Odd with meatball risotto!
