In completely coincidental honor of @lafoodfest ‘s announcement today, we were R+D’ing tonight what we THINK we might make for the event: a Roast Pork Belly Beer Beignet Banh Mi BITE! :) Props to our Sous @nomapotamus (also the creator of the Double-Bacon Bypass Tatertot Poutine ;D)

Whatever we’re gonna do.. we’re gonna have a LOT of fuckin’ FUN doing it! ;)
…the LAST DAYS of SK (in THIS spot) are upon us! If you haven’t heard/read/been told the news, July 31st is our last day in THIS space (but I have already put in an offer for a different one IN California Plaza so don’t fret ;D). Want more details, I’ll warn ya, it’s LOOOOONG, but here you GO -> CLICK ME (WITH THE QUICKNESS! ;D)
But with all that crying+whining is outta the way now. Let’s get into the good stuff: we’re going to be rotating a whole lotta things in (at our WHIM) in the next week or so. For instance, we gots the SK KARA-GE (aka the Japanese Porpcorn Chicken-liciousness + Housemade Ginger Ponzu-tasticness… yuuuuUUUM! ^_^) back on for today.
Still gots LOTSA stuff to do while we wind up/wind down/wind back up again so I gots to go. When I have more time, I’m going to start on my new focus to make fun of… Nickelback! (‘cause it’s just TOO EASY y’all ^_^)
Alright, we lied AGAIN (but we do it for YOU, we promise.. and also for us sometimes ;D) the NEBRASKA ANGUS JAPANESE MEATBALL CURRY is on for one.. More.. WEEK! (but this is most def the last week y’all!)
Now that we’ve confirmed we’re “lying liars” (only sometimes y’all), why don’t we talk about the LA STREET FOOD FEST which is going on this Saturday foo’s. If you need a recap of it, ummm… these happened before ^_^
Last year = STAR WARS…
the year before = my now infamous banana suit ;)
Inevitably the banana suit will return (people REALLY love it when I wear that thaaaaang LOL), but we definitely got a new theme this year. It’ll be fun more than anything (and I’m growing a pervy mustache just for it ^_^).
We’ll tell all you 3.125 average readers (maybe even more than that after today LOL ;D) more info tomorrow like what we’re servin’ up.. who we’re excited to see.. how I’m going to take on The Mighty Boba Truck’s Boba Man this year. Here’s a good comparison of our history w/ BOBA MAN!
Oh yes, this is gonna be another FUUUUUUN ONE! ^_^
Today many of you will want to kick me in the “ball sack” ‘cause it’s the LAST WEEK for the CRISPY TOFU BALLS! (damn, where’s my junior high school football cup when I need it, huh?!?!)
I know… I KNOW!!! So many of you love ‘em (while my staff kinda hates me everytime I bring these suckas back… they’re a LOT of work!!) If you didn’t know, last week was SUPPOSED to their final hurray for the month, but we extended the menu one more week just so you could get your crack-tacular fix for “the balls”.. but now that’s about to end (so get ‘em now foo’s!)
If it makes anyone feel a LIL bit better, we’re going a LOT more South-East Asian this week! The MALAYSIAN COCONUT PINEAPPLE CHICKEN makes it’s tasty (and SPICY ^_^) come back after almost 7 months (kinda like the last time we served the CRISPY TOFU BALLS too… I know… I’m just rubbing “salt into the wound” on the tofu balls subject!). Not only that but…
The Singaporean Curry Noodles are finally back too (these are also quite spicy-licious! ;D)
(does that South-East Asian themed news help balance out the CRISPY TOFU BALLS leaving?? I guess if you’re vegetarian that answer would be “You’re a stupid head Nguyen Tran!” and to that I might run away and shake my head in agreement while I’m running away and covering my ‘nads in fear of your veggie-rage ^_^)
While you’re in a tizzy over all the South-East Asian deliciousness (and some “trivial” bad news about some pesky green balls aleavin’), don’t forget to have perspective.. and remember that in times of war, cats are not only our friends but pave the path of righteousness for their trusted companions and exhibit extreme bad ass-itude in the heat of battle (and I would like to think the same fortimes where they’re just “in heat” too… but me thinks this is not such interchangeable advice LOL) And if none of that makes sense to you, and you DEMAND that we cater to your short-attention span theater cravings while educating you on the wisest wisdom any wiseman would want you to have, well here ya go! ;)
Wisdom… oh YEAH! :)
(and don’t forget this stuff happening this weekend too ^_^)
Since Din-Dins AND the now new ROAST PORK BELLY XO FRIED RICE (*drool* worthy pics in the previous posts… “uh huh huuuuuuuh”) ain’t on til tomorrah (and it’s REALLY good too y’all), why not take a quick trip down memory lane since I JUST found this pick above with us at the LA Street Food Fest 2011 where we ALL dressed up in a Star Wars outfits (as demonstrated below ;D).
(yup, we try to have at least a “LIL BIT” of fun at these events ^_^)
See ya this week for Happy Hour/Din-Dins everyone!
Holy CRAP I’ve been awake since 3.30a for this @lafoodfest interview w/ @marpop + @myfoxla ..oh yeah, we’re servin up the Viet Minced Beef-TACULAR this Saturday w/ a quail egg FTW!!! ;) (Taken with Instagram at The Rose Bowl)
Dear America, I’m sorry.. I LOVE me some Spandau Ballet “TRUE” and ANY form of it (which I shouldn’t have to apologize for because it’s an AWESOME SONG!)
…oh yeah, and Happy New Wave Weds… SUCKAS! LOL
If you wanna quick no BS summary of what’s going on this week (‘cause you have a short attention span ‘cause you wanna watch the next-best-greatest cat whistling dixie youtube video like me!):
LAST WEEK for SPICY KOREAN BLACK PORK BELLY … or IS IT?!?! (I know, “clever!”)
You can VOTE for what the next dish is, but you gots to come in and figures it out
… and we love you very much (even if you have a lil mornin’ breath, we don’t mind.. and here’s some chewing gum from us just because! ^_^)
Until then, just a piece of advice we learned from the LA Street Food Fest: becareful when you’re around me in my banana suit!! If I start getting worked up, I might just kick you in the BALLS fer fun like the Boba Man from The Mighty Boba Truck (we <3 those guys ^_^)
(picture care of [i.e. possibly but not really “stolen”.. we think :D] from Sean Lin / @CaptainSean)
“And I raaaan… I ran so far awaaaay” when I heard it was New Wave WEDNESDAY!! (that kinda rhymes if you say it JUST the right way ^_^)
Unfortunately, not much time to blogsies today. Being a restaurateur is CRAZY busy sometimes (and I cannot WAIT to tell all 6-7 of you of the ups+downs of this biz ESPECIALLY where I completely f’ed up too.. hopefully sooner rather than later. It ain’t all pretty, lemme tell ya!)
Dont forget that this is the REAL last week (as opposed to last week’s FAKE “last week” LOL) for the CHINESE HOISIN HAMBURGER + Korean Glass Noodles.
And don’t forget to get yer tickets to the LA STREET FOOD FEST TOO! We’re gonna make our “triumphant” return, and we have something VERY special planned for this one (and no it doesn’t have anything to do with my banana suit and balls.. I think!)
