Combo pho from Cuu Long (?) on River Street -- the one right next door to the other pho place that always has a line out the door (To Chau).

Loco Moco with extra gravy (though I certainly won't tell that to my doctor).

I had the cheeseburger and home-made potato chips at Kulia Grill on Monday. There's no denying that for the price (four bucks for the burger, a buck fifty for the chips), it's tough to beat. For a cafeteria, the place is very nicely put-together, too.

The burgers are sitting under a heat-lamp, waiting to be picked up, so there's no real wait-time, but this means that the tomato and lettuce aren't cold, if you prefer them that way. The burger is flavorful enough to take your attention away from that, though.

My one negative criticism is that the ground beef has been worked a little too much, resulting in a more processed-like patty texture than I prefer. When you're making hamburgers, you want to mix the beef up with the other ingredients just enough to get them combined, but not enough to blend them consistently, or the hamburger won't have that juicy, crumbly effect that separates the good from the adequate.

Still highly recommended.

Oh. Lunch today was two brown-sugar-cinnamon Pop Tarts.

The one where the car drove through the window last week? Funny! The customers just sat there and continued to slurp. It must be THAT GOOD.

nah, nah, nah, nah. Just follow it with some ice cream or sorbet! And the next morning while in the bathroom just chant, "come on ice cream. come on ice cream. come on ice cream!"

Grow your own habaneros? Kid 1 bit into a scotch bonnet that was growing in the back yard while it was still on the plant. I think she wasn't even 2-years-old yet. Oh my gosh, I was so sad for her! When you bite one on purpose, that's one kinda pain. When you're a tot and you bite into it, that's a complete freak out.

OR....

So...this penguin goes out for a Sunday drive and his car breaks down. Luckily for him there is a garage nearby and he coasts on in.
The mechanic says "I'll take a look at it but it's gonna be awhile."
The penguin says, "That's okay, I see an ice cream stand just down the road and I think I'll go get myself an ice cream cone."
So he waddles over to the stand and gets himself a double-scoop vanilla ice cream cone. It's a little tricky holding on to it with his flippers, and he gets ice cream on his beak and his face. By the time he's finished the cone, he's back at the garage.
The mechanic looks up from under the hood and says, "Looks like you blew a seal."
The penguin replies, "no, that's just a little ice cream."

The ramen combo (pork ramen, fried rice, and four-piece gyoza) from Yasura Japanese restaurant at the top of Smith Street (at Beretania). What a deal for $6.50!

Thank god tomorrow's payday, though. I owe my kids a treat!

I had some ono curry ramen at Yasura. It was my first time there and what a great find! Not too many places downtown that serve up good ramen.

How was it? I've heard that the Filipino food at Loulen's is really good and that the other stuff is too. Anyone else tried it yet?

It was good! Really tasty, and not dry/super hard like some places I've been to before. Usually I only enjoy the adobo from Golden Coin but I like Loulen's a lot more now.
