{travel} california in pictures

For the family and the sights:

Downtown LA historic tour.

{this building was in the last scene of 500 Days of Summer!}

Poa Poa with four of her five kids.

Three generations after a traditional Dim Sum meal.

Before dinner at Mama Lu's Dumpling House.

And now for the FOOD!

Our spread at Haven Gastropub in Old Town Pasadena. I highly recommend this place!

A bahn mi sandwich from the Nom Nom food truck at Food Truck Wednesday!
It was good, but my cousin's Nom Nom tacos looked better!

Avocado fries with a cilanto-lime aioli that I made with my cousin. Recipe coming soon!

An Asian-American cookout. Long beans, chinese greens, gai lan, grilled peppers, zuchinni,
and eggplant, corn on the cob, and grilled flank steak and chicken. SO GOOD!

I had a great time!
Now it is time to job hunt in my hometown. Eek!

xo, Jen
