Crabs in the case of SM Seafood, my Dad would have loved it, I'd have said he'd have been in heaven but I know he is. The next night we got together with P&MMcD, they took us to a place called Renee's, it's a bar that they like to go to and enjoy a Martini, all sorts of them mixed with vodka straight out of a crystal skull head. I almost jumped over the bar to get one of those skulls! Delicious-o, then over to Musha for Tokyo Cusine, OH MY YUM, GO THERE. A filetted side of Mackerel is served on a Banana Leaf to your table where the waiter comes over with a BLOW TORCH and lights it up to perfection, dipping sauce and wasabi and away you go, Poke Tuna and more fired up fish dried Skate Wing was cooked on a hollowed out stone with burning embers placed inside it, P took care of cooking this delicacy up for all of us. Egads could there be more, YUP, then P&MMcD took us to a Taqueria for an assortment of Tacos, duck, lamb & beef, with a couple of Margaritas in me I was lit up needless to say.
Above formerly the place where the mackerel was presented. Last day in LA and still drunk from the night before, even in college I never got that wasted! We went to Santa Monica Seafood, where an enormous case of fresh fish awaits you're devouring. I tried to explain to a woman at the counter how to cook sardines but when she told me she was making it for her baby, I tried to talk her out of it. This was her or someone's idea probably someone on a website like Goop, for healthy baby food!
HH above trying out the Dolce D'Alba (at Mozza), which by the way Il Piatto in Santa Fe serves, (go there too). Thank you to our friends in LA. My idea of friendship is that I consider you a friend when I have had the opportunity to sit down and eat with you, conversation, food and a bit of drink(even if it's just a Coke)=Great Friends, so thank you all.
