Escape to Los Angeles

Yup, it's Off Topic Sunday. I rarely go north of the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. I'm usually too busy with work or life in general I guess. I dig going to the city of L.A though. This time we went up there to go check out a few things, look at some old cabinets for all my motorcycle magazines and books. Yup, that's smog covering downtown L.A.:

After a day of checking out a bunch of little spots around the city, we ended up near Chinatown. I was pretty stoked, cause it meant we were going to one of my favorite restaurants there. I dig this place because its got my favorite dumpling, which is kinda like a soup dumpling.

This place always has a line.
We started with the standard Won Ton Soup.
This is the dumpling I dig. It's got this really soupy pork in it. You gotta watch out, it might give you a tongue-burning surprise.
Beef Chow Fun. A little greasy here and not their best dish, but its good. One of the highlights of this field trip was that Trevelen had some mix CD's made for me courtesy of Cypress Hill's B-Real and DJ Muggs. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
Trev's in a killer neighborhood near Little Tokyo. Bunch of cool old buildings and art. We got to hang out with him for a bit talk story.
He's a busy man working way into the night but this former Kahuku High School Red Raiders alumni always takes the time out for his favorite guy from Wahiawa, Hawaii! Thanks Trev!
