You don’t have to be afraid of what you are.
There’s an answer, if you reach into your soul…”
LOL! Had to throw that in..
In Cypress, in another small strip plaza lies a restaurant that serves a blend of different types of food. Serving an eclectic range of cuisines,from French to Italian to Chinese, all with touches of the chef’s Japanese roots. A modern style of cooking, it is a fusion of European and Asian influences. By using ingredients from your native country or with food that you grew up eating, the chef was able to create a diverse menu of dishes that left me wanting to come back and try other new dishes.
$50 per person was spent including some beer for 2 people, but i am sure you can get out of there much cheaper. The group of friends i tend to eat with usually orders way more than the average person.
Hope you try it.
Enough BS writing and on with the pictures.

actually it was a friday night. (but it made for a good title from an old skool LSOB song. HA!)
Enjoyed a great meal here and you can’t beat the price of $20 for their Friday Supper Club. A meal that includes an appetizer, an entree and a small dessert. A small place where you won’t need a reservation and where their menu will surprise with a variation of flavors using seasonal ingredients.
I will definitely come back for a price like this, it cant be beat with the caliber of food that they serve.
Drive slow on Sunset because you might just miss it. There is no parking lot so you will have to find street parking and watch out for the weekends, it also gets crowded.
Wednesdays is also $5 burger night, which makes it the perfect price for a poor broke-ass like me.

A great day to be out in the sun, driving up the windy road that leads to Angels point in Elysian park i am reminded why I love L.A.
The wife and I got to eat some delicious breakfast fare here with a bunch of other people who were able to find the place and make it to the brunch. I would have loved to mingle and talk with everyone, but without some liquid courage my anti-social personality ruled the day.
I was also a considerate anti social douchebag since M.Egg was offering seconds and i turned it down even though i wanted to eat more. Other people were still waiting for their meal, i should have waited and got my seconds. Damn!
anyway some crappy pics by me:
A hazy sunday, Downtown L.A. could have looked a little better on a clear day. I would have wanted a better picture than this.
Thanks for the great food, great time and great location Monsieur Egg – Jaime Turrey
Bacon, perfect runny scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, homemade croissants and scones. (shade and shadows in pics…my bad)
Crabby crab cakes! Que?
This non-descript restaurant is one of the better Izakaya places i have been to. A great selection of japanese style “tapas” can be found here. Small plates of braised pork belly, japanese chicken wings, tofu, and other classic izakaya dishes was thoroughly enjoyed by my group of friends. i wish this was closer to me, so i could kick back once a week and have a cold pitcher of beer with mouth watering food to match. The place is run by a 30-something japanese couple, new transplants in to the LA area. The wife handles the service and the husband (the chef) is the master behind the counter.
Check the pics. (not great since i only had my chitty camera)
more food and pics were had, these were the pics that were barely salvageable.
plus i started getting drunk and my hands were really shaky.

Thoughts on LA Street Food Fest, pretty awesome, pretty crowded too! Vushotcha and me should have planned the day better. We should have hit Ludo Lefebvres truck first. His line was like the old days of the DMV. Fuck That! NO fried chicken is that good (I’m just bitter). Here are the following places we tried.
Phamish – Their Bahn mi was ok. i still prefer the brick and mortar locations all over the SGV and OC.
Flying pig – ate some pork belly, Peking style and a slider. Not bad but was expecting more.
Mama Koh’s – some good KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) wings. I would like Kyochon and Mama Koh’s wings to have a battle.
But the one i want to talk about is Monsieur Egg – my Favorite!
I had their scrambled eggs and thick cut bacon with home made croissant. scrambled eggs were perfect! soft, fluffy and they were still able to retain and keep the custard texture of the eggs.
We were getting pretty full and needed to take a quick rest, walked around and all the lines were waay too long!
I headed back to Monsieur Egg, I was so impressed with his food i ordered another item on his menu – Croque Madam with Fried egg.
This was art ala cart! (i should trademark this line)
This Grilled ham sandwich with fried egg was delicious! perfect runny fried egg and beautiful grilled sandwich with tasty ham. Wow1 From a freaking cart y’all!
I am now a fan.
long post. sorry guys, Here are pics!
