remember the days when i used to post food pictures a lot?? yea, me neither. but i’m trying to start it up. so here are what i had this weekend:
1. Grilled Chicken Sandwich at Roman’s
On Saturday, my family met up with family’s friends and had dinner here. Nico also came along and i’m happy to report he behaved quite well (hehe :D). I had the grilled chicken sandwich and he had BLT. I forgot what everyone else had, but it was a fun night of talking and socializing.
The sandwich was pretty good, but i LOVE LOVE LOVE the dressing they put on the mixed baby greens!! i dunno what dressing it is. Nico says they were italian but i’m not sure. it tasted a bit nutty and oh so yummy…
2. Build Your Own Burger at The Counter
Today (Sunday) I went to the counter with Kat. It’s a trendy burger place in Santa Monica where you can basically choose what you want to have on your burger: choice of meat, cheese, 4 toppings and sauce. I chose to have bunless 1/3 lbs beef burger on mixed baby greens, provolone, boiled eggs, corn and black beans salsa, grilled onion and tomatoes on mine. for the sauce, i chose sun-dried tomato vinaigrette, which makes for a good salad dressing.
i LOVE that you can choose bunless burgers here because i never actually eat the bun when i eat burgers/sandwiches. i know, i’m weird like that… i don’t like bread that much. i think they are unnecessary stomach filler.
anyway, my “burger” was more like salad as you can see above. i have to say though, it was pretty freakin delicious. on the first bite of the beef, i can really taste the charbroil taste. We also ordered half sweet fries half regular fries. I love sweet fries! :D
Before dinner, Nico and I met up with Kat at Brea to see Bolt. It was a cute movie with excellent animation!! then again, i would never hate a story with a dog as its main character. Story-wise I feel like it wasn’t quite up to par with Pixar’s movies with the likes of Wall-E and Ratatouille, but I would still recommend people to see this movie.
I also started up my netflix again. i wasn’t going to at first, but they were being sneaky and sent me a DVD… and i’m hooked again. They sent me Dark City (see IMDB page here), which I don’t even remember adding to my queue but ended up being a weird experience for me as it is almost the same idea i pondered in this post. in this movie a group of men called “The Strangers” build the world to their liking by “tuning” which is basically their willpower. see what i mean about running into the same idea over and over again?
anyway, i need to sleep. it’s about 1AM right now and i haven’t been able to sleep because i drank four cups of coffee at breakfast -_-
