How to Butcher a Kangaroo:

NOTE: Kangaroo meat is very lean and high in protein, essential B vitamins,
iron, zinc, omega-3 (an essential nutrient associated with fish),
and omega-6 fatty acids, and is very low in fat (only about 2%)
But the meat also has a high concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
which has been associated with the build-up of arterial plaque,
and can lead to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes.
67232285_3182547408484770_8951960546475769856_o

Kangaroo was always eaten by the aboriginal Australians, and the
meaty tail, roasted in a pit of hot embers, is considered a delicacy down under.

Kangaroo Meat is illegal in the state of California!

Fried Rice with Minced Beef

Ingredients:
1/2 pound minced beef
iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 bowls white rice, preferably leftover and reheated
2 tsp light soy sauce
salt, to taste
sugar, to taste

Marinade:
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp chicken powder
2/3 tsp sugar
1 tsp water
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp shaoxing wine
a pinch of pepper

Method:
Marinate minced beef with marinade for 15 minutes.
Heat oil over medium. Cook beef until 80% done. Set aside.
Add some oil again. Stir in beaten egg. Stir constantly until 60% done. Add rice, preferably reheated beforehand as it’d shorter the cooking time. Quickly stir fry evenly. Sprinkle salt and sugar to taste. When the rice is really hot thoroughly, add light soy sauce.
Toss in beef. Continue to cook and combine well. Add shredded lettuce and spring onion until softens. If you’d like to taste the crunchy veggie, then don’t fry too long. Serve hot.

Combination Fried Rice:
First, when it comes to fry rice, we have to use leftover rice because you don’t want any soggy rice. Mixing with all the other vegetables and meat, the rice would be just right, not so dry or soggy.
Second, use as many favorite ingredients as you like. There’s no only one rule to combine ingredients for fried rice. So, be creative and enjoy whatever you like.
Third, the right order is to pan fry eggs, then followed by rice. Many people make the mistake to put in rice first, then pour in whisked eggs. This would make the rice soggy and mushy by absorbing the egg mixture.
Last but not least, don’t stir fry all ingredients with rice in the first place.You have to sauté the meat and vegetables separately. Then combine with the fried rice when it’s nearly done. Simple and easy

Ingredients :
3 bowls leftover rice
1 onion
1 sausage (I used Continental Frankfurt this time)
1 slice ham
6 mushrooms
1/2 cup green peas
3 eggs, whisked

Seasoning:
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
A pinch of black pepper, to your taste
salt, to your taste
sugar, to your taste

Method:
Blanch green peas in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cut onion, sausage and ham into small cubes. Slice mushrooms.
Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté onion on medium-heat pan, add in mushrooms until tender. Put in green peas and sauté for 2 minutes. Set aside.
Heat pan on medium heat, sauté sausage and ham until light brown. Dish up.
Clean the pan with a piece of kitchen towel. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, pour in whisked eggs. When the egg mixture is half-way cooked through, add in leftover rice. Stir well for about 10 minutes on high heat. When all rice is evenly heated up and mixed well with the eggs, add in onion, green peas and mix well. At last, add the sausage and ham. While stirring all ingredients together, generously sprinkle salt, sugar and black pepper. Drizzle the soy sauce all around the rice and toss. Taste it by yourself. When you’re satisfied, it’s done.

Tips:
You can use whatever greens you like, for example capsicum, celery. Other meat, like chicken, shrimp, beef or BBQ pork can be good choice too.
If you preheat the chilled leftover rice in a microwave beforehand, it would shorten the cooking time. Save your energy~
Enjoy your fried rice!

Candied Orange Peel
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy.
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl.

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.

Dinner at Big Wong & Dessert at Milkywave in Las Vegas!

Dinner at Big Wong in Las Vegas!

78669778_3264902483536295_3548717239421108224_n

Big Wong Restaurant in Las Vegas

WHAT’S FOR DINNER?  So, it’s Wednesday night in Las Vegas and what should we eat?

Food and Wine magazine recommended Big Wong asian restaurant, also in the “Chinatown Strip” and they said you get a lot of really good food for a really good price.
Well, okay then……

79238859_3264902613536282_5963822429938647040_n

Located in the Seoul Plaza, it’s almost a “hole-in-the-wall”, with no-frills, a very spartan dining room, and pictures of the food on the walls. Low overhead means lower prices, and we did dinner for less than half the amount we spent on dinner at Lotus of Siam.

Yes, the atmosphere was rather cafeteria like, but the food was AWESOME!

On The Menu: Salt & pepper fried chicken wings with jalapeños, thin sliced rib-eye steak with potatoes and steamed rice, wor wonton soup with noodles, fried chicken over steamed rice, mango pudding, and a Dr Pepper.

We would definitely return to this restaurant next time.
The salt & pepper friend chicken wings were A-number one!

And then we wandered across the parking lot back to the car and decided to check out the MilkyWave shaved ice cream place (also in the Seoul Plaza).

Dessert at MilkyWave! SHAVED ICE CREAM! (not shaved ice)

78199051_3265572553469288_5526872265632776192_n

We enjoyed the “small” Choco Loco!
Chocolate ice cream, brownie bites, chocolate chips, chocolate sauce & whipped cream!
Our friends shared a vanilla-caramel-banana one too.

Yeah it was good. Would return here as well.

And then after dinner and dessert we went back to Frankie’s Tiki Room for cocktails!

Dinner at the NoHo Diner in North Hollywood

Dinner at the NoHo Diner

Dinner at the NoHo Diner

Friday night and seeking comfort food, we decided to eat at the NoHo Diner in North Hollywood. For many, many years it was Sitton’s Family Restaurant, but now it’s got a new name and it’s nicer. It has retained that familiar “old timey” ambience but it’s been cleaned up and refurbished nicely.

On the Menu: we both started with a Heineken served with a frosted glass, and then ordered the fried chicken dinner served with soup or salad, choice of potato and mixed vegetables. I chose fries and a green salad with ranch dressing on the side, my friend had a baked potato and salad.

It’s still a family restaurant. The food is solid American cuisine, “stick to your ribs”, comfort food. It’s good, but definitely not gourmet, and a good value for the money. They also have great lunch and dinner specials before 8pm and on the board every night. We were there at 9pm on Friday, the place was pretty empty and the specials were the rotisserie chicken and fish chips dinner for $7.75. The service was good, our server was friendly and attentive, and the food was tasty and filling.

Answers: Places to eat near Chateau Marmont? Things to do near LAX? Where is the Walk of Fame? Best views in Los Angeles?

Answers to more Travel Questions:

Q: Interesting places to eat near Chateau Marmont? (in West Hollywood, CA)

A: YES. In any direction, you have your choice of restaurants! What cuisine and price range are you seeking? West Hollywood has a few restaurants to choose from…

all along the Sunset Strip and Sunset Boulevard: Rainbow Bar & Grill, BOA Steakhouse, Katana, The Standard, Hollywood, Skybar, Mel’s Drive-In, Greenblatt’s Deli, Carney’s, the London West Hollywood Hotel, the restaurants at Sunset Plaza and many more.

Sunset Boulevard at Sunset Plaza - West Hollywood, California (copyright 2013 JoshWillTravel)

Sunset Boulevard at Sunset Plaza – West Hollywood, California (copyright 2013 JoshWillTravel)

all along Santa Monica Blvd (“Boy’s Town”): Hamburger Mary’s, HAMBURGER HAVEN, Dan Tana’s,The Abbey, and east towards Hollywood: Barney’s Beanery, Formosa Cafe, Jones Hollywood and many more.

all along LaCienega (RESTAURANT ROW): Matsuhisa, The Stinking Rose, Lawry’s the Prime Rib and many more.

There are cafes and restaurants all along West 3rd Street and Robertson, The Ivy, the Four Seasons Hotel on Doheny, Canter’s Deli and Little Ethiopia on Fairfax, Urth Caffe and all along Melrose too.

And then there’s alway’s the world famous restaurants in Beverly Hills, the Century City Mall, any number of eateries and chain restaurants in Hollywood, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Yamashiro, Roscoe’s House Of Chicken & Waffles, In-N-Out Burger, Chick-fil-A @and many, many more.

There are great restaurants in hotels and “hole in the wall” joints, strip malls and taco/food trucks. If you want “dinner and a show”, there are Supperclubs (nightclubs that have dinner service – admission to the club is usually included with dinner) and Comedy clubs (the Comedy Store, the Laugh Factory and the Improv all have food service). There are good websites and dining guides (Zagat’s, ChowHound, Yelp, etc.) that can help you determine menu and price range for most places in Los Angeles, just do the research.


LAX - Theme Building (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

LAX – Theme Building (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

Q: 6 hour layover in Los Angeles, what is there to do? I’m going to have a layover in LA for 6 hours and was planning on going to Hollywood Blvd.

A: Places to visit and eat near Los Angeles International Airport

You probably don’t have the required time to visit Hollywood, with travel time to and from the airport and current security procedures.

(see my previous answer BELOW for Hollywood-LAX travel time)

These places are all close to LAX:

Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX

Encounter Restaurant at LAX -CLOSED. but it’s a cool building

Randy’s Donuts on Manchester blvd

In-N-Out Burger on Sepulveda blvd

Roscoes House of Chicken and Waffles

The Proud Bird  on Aviation blvd

Trader Joe’s on Sepulveda blvd

Hollywood Park Casino on Century blvd

Custom Hotel on Lincoln blvd

There’s a lot of great restaurants, shopping and entertainment in Culver City, Venice Beach and Santa Monica but these areas are farther away.


LAX - Welcome to Los Angeles!

Q: Where is the walk of fame and how far is it from the airport in L.A.? This is my first time to LA and I was wondering where the walk of fame is and how far is it from the airport?

A: Where is the “Walk of Fame”? Hollywood Blvd in Hollywood!

The Walk of Fame runs from LaBrea to Gower and up Vine to the Capitol Records Building. You can see the stars’ hands and feet in concrete in the courtyard of (Grauman’s) Mann’s Chinese Theater, visit the Kodak Theatre and shop at Hollywood & Highland. Also in the immediate vicinity are Ripley’s, Madame Tussaud’s, Max Factor and the Hollywood Wax Museums. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the El Capitan Theatre and the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio/offices are just across the boulevard. There are also many restaurants, clubs, bars, retail and tourist gift shops in the neighborhood. The Musso and Frank Grill, Frolic Room, AVALON Hollywood (the old Hollywood Palace Theater), Pantages Theatre and The Egyptian Theatre are all very historic spots along the Walk of Fame.

A: How far is it from the airport?

Los Angeles International Airport in Inglewood is far away. And depending on the time of day, traffic and your chosen route, it can take 20 minutes or two hours. The LA Flyaway recently started a Hollywood Shuttle, but it’s timeliness because of traffic has been problematic.

Bob Hope Airport in Burbank is closer and the 170 and 101 freeways provide a direct route which can take 20 minutes or an hour depending on time of day, traffic or an event in Hollywood or at the Hollywood Bowl.

Hollywood and Highland

Q: Best views in Los Angeles? We’ll be visiting and want to take in the views! Ocean views, city views from restaurants, hotels, parks, etc. Where are the best places to take some photos in LA?

A: Great views of Los Angeles day or night?

The Standard and Skybar on Sunset Blvd and the Rooftop Bars/Pool Decks at the London West Hollywood Hotel, Montage Beverly Hills and Luxe Hotel Rodeo Drive all have great views along with cocktails and food.

Nice views of Downtown at WP24 from the 24th floor bar and 25th floor restaurant (the WP stands for Wolfgang Puck), both the Elevate Lounge and the Rooftop at The Standard Downtown LA have excellent views.

Downtown Los Angeles from up high!

If you can get into City Club on Bunker Hill (a private club on the top of the Wells Fargo building) there’s a men’s restroom with the best view!

The Music Center plaza has great views of DTLA, Cityhall and the DWP Building. The dancing fountains, the PEACE statue, and the architecture of Disney Hall, the Ahmanson, Mark Taper Forum and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion provide great scenery.

Los Angeles Music Center (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

There’s a picnic area at the top of the Hollywood Bowl that has great views and it’s open during the day as a city park. You might also catch a (free) rehearsal if it’s the musical season.

Visit the Getty Museum for amazing views and amazing art. FREE just pay $10 for parking. Open late on Fridays.

Take a slow drive along Mulholland Drive for great views of the San Fernando Valley and West L.A. day or night. There are numerous turnouts and vista points between Hayvenhurst and Runyon Canyon Park.

Saturday morning in Ashland! Farmer’s market downtown on Oak Street between Lithia and Main. Unfortunately, I got there late and the market was closing. I did get some good pics, but didn’t get to shop at all…

Anti-GMO Protest on the Plaza

I love Ashland! Around the corner from the Farmer’s Market on the Plaza, there was an Anti-GMO protest in progress. I definitely had to check it out.

There were 15 groups represented and information tables with sign up sheets, petitions, and stuff for sale (donations). Lots of people were gathered both as participants and spectators. It was very reminiscent of Santa Cruz in the 1980’s.
