Asian comfort foods in LA

Last week...

Lunch at Tsujita LA on Sawtelle Blvd. They finally started serving ramen for lunch. I had tsuke-men (ramen with dip). The sauce was really deep. For the leftover dipping sauce, they added some dashi stock to it to drink.

Lunch at Olympic Cheonggukjang in Koreatown. Now they have menu with sweet. I had their signature Cheonggukjang (3-day fermented soy bean stew). I loved the slightly "natto-ey" smell of the soup.

Last Saturday, we were invited to our friend's birthday party in Marina del Ray. After the party, we were hungry and had a late-night "snack" at Pho Cafe in Silverlake. We barely made it before their closing time at 12.00 am. I had the vermicelli noodle with tofu and vegetables. It certainly satisfied my hunger.
