In between all the reservations for breakfast, lunch and dinner there had to be several pitt stops made for some snacks. In this case, sweet snacks. I of course already have my list of places jotted down before we even land in the state.
This is my 3rd visit to LA since 2005 and I fall in love the city more and more each time. This trip we found ourselves doing things we’d normally wouldn’t/never be able to do.
Just a quick post on yet another newbie around Canley Heights – welcome Le Caravelle, an extension of Holy Basil. Residing right next door to Holy Basil, Le Caravelle is more of a wine/tapas bar rather than another Lao/Thai restaurant. Also available are a variety of cakes and treats, as well as frozen yoghurt and gelato.
I’m not the biggest fan of frozen yoghurt but I do have a tendency to crave it every now and again. Since it’s popping up everywhere and even so close to home, it’s always a quick fix for some relatively healthy dessert. A couple shops down from Holy Basil and around the corner from Chi Chi, Noggi (Canley Heights) has just opened its doors on March 22, 2013.
Happy 25th Birthday to my amazing other half, who is the best eating companion anyone could ask for :D
He doesn’t know it yet but I baked him a vanilla butter cake with lemon buttercream frosting. It was my first attempt at doing ombre icing and I’m quite happy with it, but it’s far from perfect. Perhaps I should google some ombre icing tips next time, though I know I can hold my head up high for the fact I did it on my own ;)
Can’t wait to dig in tonight!! =D
Welcome to 2013! I hope everybody had a great (and safe) time ringing in the new year. I think it’s only right of me that my first post of 2013 entails my first proper eat for the year. It’s new years day and with it being a public holiday, we weren’t too sure of what was going to be opened so we resort to Cabramatta, which we know is opened all year round except during Chinese New Year.
