Just five quick RiFWoLs (Reviews in Five Words or Less), on the Fourth, so that it looks like I am excited about having to run off for bigbigbig patriotic plans instead of really wanting to stay plopped down right here, blogging.
Wanting to. Really. I love my country, but firecrackers make too much noise.
Café Bleu, Koreatown – Melon soju tastes like lipgloss.
Jumak Sheeri, Koreatown – Dome. Bells. Like Korean Quasimodo.
New India Grill, Westwood – Candy fennel precursor to Good-n-Plenty. (Indulge me this holiday and pretend "Good-n-Plenty" is one word. 'k?)
Rosalind's, Little Ethiopia – Sloooow, schizo service. Drink mead.
Uzen Sushi, West Los Angeles – Happy, playful chefs. Worth wait.
