Mr. Ramen and Susina Bakery

Some Saturday eats:

Chashu pork ramen at Mr. Ramen. I put my name down on the list at Daikokuya, but didn't have much time on my parking meter, so opted for Mr. Ramen a few doors down. The broth was a tad too salty to finish it all, but the pork slices were substantial and tender. Next time I'll try a ramen set, which comes with a choice of gyoza, fried rice or curry rice.

After running some errands, I stopped in at Susina Bakery for a snack. Their cake and pie slices are quite large here, so I opted for some little fruit tarts.

I also had a lemonade, which was fine, but I wish it had tasted more like real lemons.

Whenever you're out in LA again, I shall take you to Susina. It's a darling little shop with many a goody.

And considering the Lucky Charms I'm having for breakfast right now, yes, fruit tarts would be nice!

I am so jealous of your closeness to all of these great food places! I live in the IE, with not a decent Korean or Japanese, or anything worthwhile, for that matter, restaraunt less than an hour away! That ramen looks yummy!

Hi KP! First, I had to google IE (of course, as soon as I realized Inland Empire, it was a "duh" moment). Second, I'm surprised there aren't good Korean or Japanese places out there! At least, you are close enough to drive in and indulge every once in a while. :)
