Another tale of getting moted.

We were trying to go to this new Brazilian place for dinner. Surprise! It’s only open for lunch during the week. This place is really close to Jane’s house. Since we’ve been meaning to try it for awhile, this was as good a time as any to finally give it a whirl.

i want california chicken cafe…

leave a comment »

Still sick at home for the third day in a row. Too lazy to rummage through the picture archives to dig out something totally new. I do, however, have a few posts teed up and ready to go. This one is another from LA/Disney weekend about 2-3 weeks ago.  Off to peruse those new templates again, stay well!


Whenever I hear the words ‘California Chicken Cafe’ I recall a particularly funny Jane story where she repeatedly demands California Chicken Cafe until she drives her brother insane. Hah. Imagine my delight to finally get a taste of the famous chicken.

We went to the CCC in the Valley after Thai massages at Pho Siam (no, not a pho place). I recommend both the chicken and the thai massages. Can you tell I had a good day?


I’m a white meat person and my piece was moist and tender inside with a nicely roasted and seasoned outside. Warm tortillas, mashed potatoes, and chopped Chinese cabbage salad rounded out the meal. They have lots of different dips and sauces you can choose from – everything from sweet and sour sauce to tapatio, and pico de gallo. I can’t remember the exact price but it was reasonable given the quality of the quickie meal.

Tasty shot of the salad as a parting gift.


Yet another chain that has yet to make its way to the Bay. 4****

leg 2: seoul to singapore

After 12.5 hours of plane time we had a brief 1 hour layover in Korea. A good time for us to stretch out (thanks for seats with no armrest for ease of stretching, Incheon Airport!), walk around, and take a breath of non-cabin air. Sadly, it was night time in Korea so most of the kiosks in the terminal were closed.
