Ramen California (more ramen)

We were going to meet my cousins Sydney and Claire because they came to LA to visit us.(They live in Boston) And we couldn't figure out a place to eat until my mom suggested Ramen California because it was reviewed in the LA times.So we drove all the way up to Torrence, CA, and found Ramen California.
We arrived around 11:45 but the tables were full! So we sat at the counter, with a full view of the chefs cooking the food. We thought that was awesome until we tried the salad. I don't usually like salad but this salad was delicious. They didn't drench it in sauce or put too little, they put just the right amount. They have several different sized bowls. A small, large, and extra large. Two bowls of extra large bowls would probably be enough for four people or more! But we ordered two small bowls (for my sister and I) and two large bowls for my parents. And it was just the right amount. When the food came there was already a long line of people waiting outside the restaurant. The ramen was outstanding. They had very unique ingredients they put in the ramen.Such as purple cauliflowers, green cauliflowers, heirloom tomatoes, and much more.

When we were done with our meals we were all very pleased even my dad who doesn't like ramen very much. You guys should try it out. It's a restaurant worth going to. After you try it, tell me how much you liked it!

Frozen Yogurt!!

Sorry I didn't blog in a while, I couldn't figure out a topic but suddenly three new topics popped into my head. The first is, you may have guessed by the title, YOGURT! But not just any yogurt, FROZEN YOGURT!! Everybody likes frozen yogurt except some people(like my friend from school.) So let me review the most common frozen yogurt places. Red Mango, Pinkberry, Yoku Yoku, and Yogurtland! You may disagree with what I think about these places, but then you can try their yogurt again and tell me what you think about them,

the stock market's up anyways!! I'll list them from worst to best. I personally think Red Mango is at the bottom of the list because it's a bit too hard and a bit too sweet. But listen that was MY opinion. It's on Venice Blvd if you want to check it out, near an In and Out Burgers, but I'm sure there are more around since it's a chain restaurant.. Running in third (no offense) is Pinkberry, because it's a bit watered down and maybe could do with some more flavors. You can find it almost anywhere (because it's also a chain restaurant) but you can find one of them in the Olympic Collection on Sawtelle and one in Marina Del Rey near a Rubios. (Sorry I don't know the exact location.) In second place there is Yoku Yoku. It's really good and they not only have frozen yogurt they also have boba, and gelatos. There are a lot of flavors too. They even sponsor my basketball team! If you look on the counter you'll see a trophy with a picture of our team on it. So, what's the problem you ask? It's way too expensive. We like to go there only if it's really hot, with my team, or if the stock market's up. It's on Palms and Sepulvda! And in first place there is Yogurtland! It has a lot of flavors (depending on which one you go too, there are hundreds of flavors in the one on Sawtelle near Curry House), cheap but good yogurt, and biodegradable spoons! The biodegradable spoon part was a little dumb, but every bit counts to keep our earth clean! There are a lot of Yogurtlands opening up. There are a few in Rowland Heights and the one I mentioned on Sawtelle. But you can look up more. There are probably hundreds! Tell me what you think about these yogurt places and tell me some you think are good. See you next time when I talk about more ramen!
