After a typical delicious meal at Hirozen, I found myself in shock over the dessert menu. They had Yokan!! This brings me back to when I lived in Japan. Yokan is made from red bean and comes in a jiggly jellied form. There's so many different varieties of Yokan.
The one at Hirozen came with a side of tapioka pudding.

If you should ever find yourself in a club in Koreatown, You will likely stumble across a fruit plate. If there's one thing I know about Koreans (being that I'm Korean), we love two things when we go out: fruit plates and Crown Royal. I'm still perplexed as to why us Koreans love this Canadian import so much. I apologize for the bad photo. I was probably 10 drinks in at this point.
Their food is great and reasonably priced given the location and ambience. But what I really want to talk about is the ice cube in my Dewars. It's 1 big cubic ice cube. It's simple physics: less surface area means the ice will melt slower. More bars should adapt this method. Perfect for scotch and whiskey.
Finally had a chance to dine at Pizzeria Mozza. What's everyone gauge when it comes to good pizza? Is it the sauce? The cheese? The crust? I'm a big fan of good chewy and thin crusts.
We tried a few interesting pizzas, one with anchovies (more people should like anchovies), and one with egg, bacon, and yukon gold potatoes. But the real winner was the caprese insalate.
