Monica is…in a cooks paradise!

If I have a day off & I don’t have a silly errands to run, I always try to make a trip to Surfas Restaurant Supply & Cafe. It’s not only an amazing store will thousands of kitchen knick knacks, but also filled with a super nice staff & delicious cafe! I literally comb the aisles because there is always something new to explore, test, & ogle. I love coming here for an afternoon lunch & a plus is parking right out front. Yay! Surfas Cafe 8777 W. Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232

Monica is…in lunch break heaven.

Sometimes amidst these tired wells at work, there is light at the end of tunnel…with a sandwich of course! When the day seems to drag on, the thought of having this delicious, simply crafted sandwich drives me wild. The lines are always long for Larchmont Village Wine Spirits & Cheese & sometimes they run out of meat or bread before 2pm, but for good reason. Freshly shaved turkey, fine cheeses, & savory balsamic vinegar make this lunch irresistible. How can they make this sandwich taste so good for so little? If you’ve not stumbled upon this little gem, arrive early before you’re the last person told “no more sandwiches”. Larchmont Village Wine Spirits & Cheese Neighborhood: Mid Wilshire
223 N Larchmont Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90004

Monica is…on a expensive tuna kick.

bunny-0032

For the past week & half, I had a craving for all things tuna. I had somehow weened myself off of it when I had a bad batch, but I decided to treat myself the other day. I had been eating twigs & berries to save money but I just can’t take it anymore. My co-workers & I have exhausted our Trader Joes’s mystery packs & hate it when one of those good ideas at the market taste like crap at lunch. I looked into this lunch special at this sushi place by my job, and oh man soo amazing. Its deliciously spicy, fresh buttery tuna on a bed of greens and rice for $12 bucks. An order really meant for 2 people but I hungrily ate that shit as if I was never going to eat well again. I instantly though to myself “How the hell are you going to afford to eat this again for lunch?” I had a panicked moment like a drug fiend searching for a way in to more crack. I knew now I’d have to have it once a week. I briefly related to those damn druggies at the motel next to my apartment. Thinking… “Is this how they feel when they have their goods?” Only for a second, then realized it was only tuna. Damn, fine tuna. So tonight as a reward for enduring another awful day at work, I ordered my spicy tuna tray & waited patiently. While I waited, a silent, older, couple sat in front of me. They too had an amazing spread of rolls & sushi, yet they sat silent not even looking at each other. That’s fucking sad. I have this thing with dinner mutes. How could you not have fun eating? You have to be a complete square not to have anything to talk about. Fuck I’d make some shit up just so I didn’t look pathetic to the other people eating. Geez nobody wants to sit next to a table like that. You start feeling to guilty about the great time your having. Yeech…The milk has gone sour in that relationship.
