Girls' Trip to California

I went away to California this past weekend.  No kids, no husband...just my sister and I, and our cousins Ashley and Jenny.  It was a great time seeing my cousins, filled with scenic beauty and amazing food.  I had the best burger I've ever tasted at Umami Burger.  And I know brunches, and I had the best brunch ever at Scarpetta at the Montage Hotel in Bevery Hills.  The ramen at Daikokuya in Little Tokyo was creamy deliciousness.  And the sushi at Sake to Me has no equal in the DC area.  Needless to say, we ate a lot!  

Cheese sampling at Scarpetta, prepared by The Cheese Shop of Beverly Hills

We sat on a bench in Corona del Mar and ate breakfast...paradise.

  1. The Yaki Soba was from Shin Sen Gumi, not Sake To Me.

  2. I'm so checking out all those places the next time I'm in Cali.
