26 Beach
3100 Washington Blvd 
Venice, CA 90291
(310) 823-7526

26 Beach has officially become my favorite brunch spot after my 2nd visit this past weekend.
I know I would have gone back a lot sooner if I didn' t move down to Orange County right after my 1st visit. >_<  Since we had a friend's bday party to hit in Marina del Rey on July 4th, I finally got the excuse to drag Countryman to go back to 26 Beach with me.

這天和N 約吃午餐
選在離她office只有一個block的義大利小店Fritto Misto
(Fritto Misto 其實是一道義大利菜名:small pieces of meat, fish, or vegetables dipped in batter and deep-fried.)

N點的是當天的Lunch Special- Chicken & Spinach Lasagna with Pink Sauce with Garden Salad: 其實我們本來對千層麵都沒那麼愛, 但這lunch special 只要$8.5, 覺得不點實在是對不起自己! 沒想到她的lasagna 出乎意料的好吃, 完全跟印象中吃兩口就膩了的lasagna不同. 應該是因為她微辣的pink sauce 加上夾層只有雞肉跟菠菜而沒有容易膩的肉醬.  N本來計畫不要吃太多要打包一半回家的, 沒想到太好吃了無法停止結果她只打包了沙拉回家...哈!

開車經過的話很容易忽略

C & O Trattoria

31 Washington Blvd
Marina del Rey, CA 90292
(310) 823-9491

這家位在Venice Beach 旁但住址是在Marina Del Rey 市的義大利麵店
其實來過好幾次了也寫過簡單的介紹
但之前都是吃pasta
今天第一次吃他們的早午餐

今天點了一份蛋捲跟一份班尼迪克蛋

Garlic Roll:  他們這邊最讚的東西. 每次都會想下次乾脆只點湯或沙拉然後吃大蒜麵包吃到飽.  一般用餐的話這算是餐前麵包, 每次都是麵還沒來就撐了.  來吃早午餐的話如果點蛋類早餐會附培果, 瑪芬, 或土司麵包, 但如果是11:30am以後的話可以換成可以無限續的garlic roll.  大推薦


Trattoria Benedicto:  這個點的有點失敗.  荷蘭醬 Hollandaise Sauce 沒那麼好吃, 用的義大利式 prosciutto 又薄又鹹我也不愛.  算了他們也不是專業做這個的.  下次不會再點了就是了



Shrimp Frittata (註):  鮮美的蝦加上磨菇, sun-dried tomato 和大蒜, 混合的香味和口感讓這 frittata 相當美味. 營養好吃又不像美式蛋捲(Omelette)那麼油膩.



(註): Frittata 是一種義大利式的 omelette, 是open-faced 而不像一般的蛋捲是捲起來的

Buca di Beppo

My classmates in IOM599 class LOVE the professor and the class so much. So we went out for dinner and drink on Thur. (This is my only elective class that has such kind of get-together outside of class.) We chose Buca di Beppo and I really like it. It is a family style Italian restaurant. Their house special pizza was huge and tasted great!
I really enjoyed the dinner... but maybe more because of the company! ^_^ More photos are here.

Reel Inn
18661 Pacific Coast Hwy
Malibu, CA 90265
(310) 395-5538

Reel Inn has the best seafood I've ever had in LA! It's a casual, relaxing place. I felt like I was in a local bar/grill/restaurant near the wharf eating the freshly caught seafood from the ocean.

Its fresh seafood and Malibu beach view have immediately made the Reel Inn one of my favorite spots in LA.  It's now my to-go restaurant whenever I have friends in town.  Love it!

Jinky's
1447 2nd Street
Santa Monica, CA 90401
(310) 917-3311

I got there around 11:30AM and was ready for a long wait. It turned out that the wait wasn't as bad as it was said in all the reviews. However, I didn't think the food was as good either. The omelette I had was a little blank and dry. Though I do like the cozy vibe there. Maybe I should have ordered somethin they're well-known for.

The Sherman Oaks (fresh spinach, mushrooms and garlic) $ 8.95

Sunrise Scramble (egg whites, chicken breast, salsa fresca and mushroomS) $9.25

Zabie's

3003 Ocean Park Blvd
Santa Monica, CA 90405
(310) 392-9036

Date of visit: Oct. 28, 2006.

It's a cozy neighborhood cafe. It's not like those cafes full with trendy-dressed people on the 3rd street. It's a charming place where families enjoy their weekend breakfast/lunch.


Since it has been a while, I don't exactly recall what the food taste like. But I do remember one thing, the dishes there are very "simple." Sandwich is only sandwich. Unlike sandwich in other places, it doesn't come with anything else. The plate of sandwich I ordered didn't make me feel I'm having a full meal while I had to pay as much as I did at any other place. (I know I could have just ordered more. Maybe I am just too cheap. )
