Sonoratown and Somisomi

Remember that post I shared with you guys about Worth It? That show on YouTube that goes to different restaurants to try a food at three different price points?

Well, they tried tacos and since then Sonoratown has been on our mind. They kept talking about how amazing the flour tortillas were and I just knew me+Sonoratown=match made in heaven.

When we arrived there was a line and initially it didn’t seem to be moving but we managed to get through the line and order all in about 30 minutes.

After that wait we basically ordered one of everything on the menu.

We got two tacos-a chicken and beef, a shredded beef chivichanga (mini burrito), a chicken burrito, and a tostada.

They gave us salsa to go with it all and we both loved the red. It was fresh and bright with a good bit of spice.

Out of the food I loved everything. The tostada was my favorite along with the tacos and chivichanga. The burrito was good and ended up being the hubby’s favorite.

I am oh so happy we got to try this spot out!

Afterwards we needed something sweet so we paid the meter and headed to Little Tokyo to find some dessert.

Somisomi met all our requirements so we stopped in and hubs got the milk softserve and I got matcha. Normally we get them in the taiyaki cones but this time we switched it up a bit.

We ordered the softserve in cups and got the taiyaki on the side filled with nutella.

We had a few bites of our softserve before the piping hot taiyaki came out. Oh.em.gee. My life has been changed. This is definitely the way to do it!

The hot, chewy taiyaki dipped into the cold, cresmy softserve is the best mixing of temps and textures 🤤

It was a pretty fantastic way to spend the day!

Have you had taiyaki? What did you think?

Thanks for reading! See you next time!

Recent Dessert Faves

Let me make this super duper clear people these are not all of my favorite desserts. THAT would take a book and nobody got time for that…

While recently drooling over some food porn on my phone I couldn’t get dessert outta my head and now that I am typing this I am panicking thinking about all the delicious desserts I am about to miss because I have no recent pics….let’s take some deeeeeeeeep breaths iin and ouut phewwww

Okay let’s get on with the yumminess

This matcha soft serve from Tea Master is everything. The creamy texture and the potent matcha flavor combine to create this cool, light, and irresistible creation.

Donuts from SK Donuts make me super happy. Donuts from Sidecar also make me happy, but I have no recent pictures. Major takeaway? I love donuts.

This next one might not be technically a dessert, BUT it is sweet. I love pan fried plantains especially the perfectly ripened ones because they tend to be sweeter. It’s slightly crisp on the outside and sweet and soft on the inside. I would eat these all day!

We’ve already talked about Somi Somi in a previous post so I won’t bore you with details, but if you haven’t tried this then what are you doing??

20180624_124057

Happy Days Cafe makes a mean churro, but did you know they make churro donuts coated in chocolate and sprinkles and you can add cookies n’ cream ice-cream to the side? Also, whipped cream.

Tell me about your favorite desserts or if you’re like me and change your mind every minute what is/are your current favorite dessert(s)! Pleeeeaseeee and thank you 🙂

 

What you eat after you climb rocks

Okay so maybe this is more of a what I eat after I climb rocks, but maybe you eat these things too after climbing rocks?!?

We recently did another indoor rock climbing situation. To be honest, I don’t think it’s for me…we did auto belay and once I climbed up I had a hard time letting go of the wall so I could be dropped down. That being said I’m still quite eager to go sky diving some day 😀

After all that we decided to grab some food and found Surf n’ Turf Tacos where they specialize in all things taco.

Chips and self serve salsa for the win! The chips were warm which made me very happy 🙂

Chicken and chicken were our tacos of choice which came with chicken, cilantro, onion, and chili sauce. The tacos were fresh and super savory. They had this cheese layer on the bottom of the tortilla which held everything together.

20180630_124058

We did opt for a seafood burrito to share. We ended up getting the mahi mahi burrito which came with rice, beans, cheese, onions, cilantro, and baja sauce.

20180630_124349

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about having fish and cheese together, but the burrito ended up being really delicious. The beans, rice and cheese combined to make a creamy texture which was broken up by the chunks of mahi mahi.

20180630_124424

 

It was very filling, but we always have room for dessert 😀

There was a Rita’s close by and some mango Italian ice with a dollop of soft serve sounded like a great way to end the afternoon. It was perfection!

20180630_130925

I am a little curious now, what do you guys eat after you go rock climbing?

Lunching

While trying to run errands we decided to grab some lunch and Panera sounded perfect and a salad sounded even better.

20180622_133643

The Cobb salad was fresh, crunchy, creamy and delicious. I enjoyed every bite! We all know how I feel about bread and butter so this was a win. I didn’t end up eating all the salad or all the bread, but I was full and happy.

20180622_133648

Obviously my dessert tummy still needed a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ so we grabbed a huge churro and some soft serve for dipping 😉

20180622_135922

Is there anything more perfect in the heat?!

What’s your go to lunch when you’re out and about?

Fishing around

It’s no secret we love food in this house and if we can combine that with being active-even better! We woke up in the morning and went to the gym before having a quick breakfast and heading back out for a hike with some friends.

IMG-20180418-WA0013

Post-hike we all decided to grab food so we went to Carving Board for sandwiches. Since the hubs and I had just eaten we split a side salad and the Big Kahuna which is ahi tuna seared rare, cucumbers, seaweed, tomatoes, red onions, and their spread on a yummy brioche bun.

20180414_142140

I loved the flavors of this and how well everything melded together. The side salad was really great too and perfectly dressed!

Post lunch our sweet tooths were coming out pretty ferociously and it was hot so of course, it was the ideal day for something cold and creamy! Our friends had just told us about SomiSomi and how good the taiyaki was so we couldn’t resist.

20180414_153347

The taiyaki was chewy and crunchy and it was a perfect shell for the creamy soft serve. I ended up going with the ube flavor and the hubs got the milk flavor. Both were delicious!

20180414_153438

Don’t kill me for this, but I think I may prefer taiyaki over a waffle cone now…

Have you ever had taiyaki with soft serve? Do you prefer it over the waffle cone?? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
