Duck and Lamb on a Rainy Night =)

How about a nice dinner in a familiar and cozy place with good food? Yes, a very pleasant way to spend a rainy evening.

I have been to Taste of L.A. several times and, so far, been happy with their food here =)

Complimentary homemade bread with butter
Bread is always nice...warm and crusty..though I could detect a tad bit yeasty-ness
Something warm for the stomach...Tomato Soup

I love tomato soup. This one had a light vegetable broth with chucks of stewed tomatoes (which I really like), lots of big croutons and some mozzarella cheese =) Like a liquid pizza margherita don't you think?

Cream of Spinach Soup

Crispy Duck Wraps

I really like this! Slices of crispy duck skin (plus the fat layer ofcourse!) with leek stalks and cilantr0 wrapped in rice paper and served with hoissin sauce. I love the way they gave it a twist by adding cilantro and the use of rice paper =)

Ultra-Thin Lamb with Mint and Feta Cheese Pizza
Lamb and mint is a perfect combination! I thought it would taste strange with feta...on a pizza...but it worked. Love the uber thin crust always.

To savor duck and lamb in a "light" way =)

Haha! Another very near restaurant. I've eaten there exactly once. I thought it was good. My mom thinks it's just average, esp. given the very high prices. Very dramatic the first pic ha!
