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!

Kickin KAsian

I’ve never thought about doing or going to a crab boil and I have no idea why! The other week the idea struck me and it seemed like a fun little experience so we looked up some places.

We decided on Kickin KAsian! Honestly, I am a bad, bad foodie because I’ve never opened crab and had no idea what to expect.

We got seated and got our bibs and ordered…

We got shrimp with mushroom and quail eggs (also never had quail eggs)

We seasoned them medium spicy (not that spicy, would go spicy next time) and got their KAsian seasoning on one (cajun spice mix) and Garlic KAsian (cajun with garlic) on the other.

They brought us scissors and a cracking device. The shrimp was easy enough to peel, but the crab was sometimes a stickler.

We would have been okay with spicier seasoning, but otherwise the shrimp and crab were both delicious choices.

The quail eggs were like miniature versions of chicken eggs. Be cautious of the mushrooms though because they get super juicy and will squirt if you bite into it…definitely a one mouthful and be done kind of thing.

This was a very interesting experience all together…it gets pretty messy, but at the end of all the work you get some yummy chunks of seafood so I can’t complain!

We ended our night with SomiSomi! Ube flavored soft serve with nutella coated taiyaki and oreo crumble…NOMS!
