In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.

Maluken again

Caught a screening of Gothika at Fenway tonight. So in Kenmore Square, there's only 3 main options: Bertucci's, Uno, and Maluken. So we opted for sushi... again... (Audobon is a newly discovered option, but we already walked too far in the other direction when we thought of it)

My dad is coming to town tomorrow for the weekend, so juicy updates are coming up for the next couple of days! Don't say I didn't warn you.

Brasserie Jo

Went to Brasserie Jo last night, over near Copley. I've been there a couple of times before and it was solid. Tonight, we had a steak frites, and the "shrimp bag" (was curious about it the last times). Also had a frisee salad but I forgot to take a pic of that.

I think that hunk of whatever butter stuff was a nice addition. The shrimp bag was a phyllo pastry thing with TONS of shrimp inside, along with some random veggies and stuff. It didn't look quite as nice after I broke it apart. It was also really good, and surprisingly big. I couldn't finish the shrimp. The frisee was actually the best part of the meal I think... Really tasty, and awesome croutons. I love croutons. The baguette they give you is also pretty damn good.

Min Sok / Choe's Cafe

Didn't get a chance to update recently. Got a three day weekend this weekend cuz of the whole BU president thing. Anyway, here are some pics from Min Sok aka Choe's Cafe, the Korean place over on Commonwealth... next to McDonald's in West. Went the other day with Keith, Mike, and Snezhana.

California Pizza Kitchen

Went to California Pizza Kitchen last night in Prudential. I actually like that place a lot. I wanted to get the spinach artichoke dip but nobody else wanted it, so we got the shrimp rolls instead, and 2 pizzas.

The steak pizza was pretty good, but I liked the roasted garlic chicken one I had last time better. The club pizza was kinda weird - you can't see the chicken and bacon which is under all the lettuce, and we got it with no avocado despite my protest. And surprise... it tasted like a sandwich. It was all good, but I'm gonna go back to the more normal pizzas next time I think.
