Rock Sugar (LV's LA)

Have you ever went to a restaurant that was so intriguing you wanted to linger long after the last guest is gone? I love the ambiance at Rock Sugar just as much as I love the diverse selection of Pan Asian food that touches every type of Asian food  from the sweet notes that seduce your palate, to the fiery hot spices that incinerate your taste buds. They've got it all and then some.

The lounge with its cozy fire pits and Asian artifacts are the perfect place to take in the setting with a luscious libation in hand to view all the beautiful people that complement the gorgeous scenery. The weather was perfect for enjoying the outdoor patio, so rather than dine in the beautifully ornate interior of the restaurant, my companion and I chose to take in the summer breeze and watch the sun go down.

Instead of the traditional bread basket, these tasty sesame rice crips with chili dipping sauce get your palate ready for a culinary trip to Asia

This blood orange Sangria was refreshing, effervescent, crisp and sweet. If a drink could taste like summer, this would be it. If you like sweet drinks this delicious Sangria with a blend of Champagne, Riesling, blood orange puree, kaffir and calamansi is absolutely sublime

 These spring rolls are eaten Vietnamese style by taking a big leafy piece of lettuce and wrapping it around the entire spring roll before dipping it into the delicious sauce


These chicken satay skewers bring a little taste of Thailand

 A little pit stop in India. These delicious chicken samosas are served with a tasty cilantro yogurt dipping sauce

Absolutely stunning decor

 Every detail is eye candy

 These Thai noodles were definitely a favorite


Lemongrass roasted chicken is very aromatic, although I am not sure I would order this again


Cheers!

 To the good life!

 Tempura Tiger Shrimp with chiles, cilantro and palm sugar glaze

 Don't these tiger shrimp look amazing?

 The butter cake is absolutely scrumptious and the fresh mango, blueberries and rich condensed milk ice cream were delicious

 The caramelized banana cake was the perfect birthday treat! This is one of the signature desserts and has a caramelized top reminiscent of creme brulee and moist cake, accompanied with milk chocolate ice cream, malted cream anglaise and nut brittle

 As the evening went on, the lounge got pretty cozy, so we enjoyed a little fireside conversation and relaxation. What a great way to cap off the evening:-)

 Definitely one of my favorite spots in Los Angeles

If you haven't been to Rock Sugar, it is definitely worth checking out. Dining here can be pricey, so if you want a compete dining experience, be prepared to pay for it. The atmosphere and the diverse selection of Asian dishes make it a great choice to enjoy a meal on a special occasion, or just because:-)

Friendship

In this life, you need a good friend. At least one. As we get older, our circles tend to get smaller and sometimes it isn't always the people you have known the longest who go the extra mile. What matters the most is a friend that shows how much they value you by their actions. I used to place a lot of value on the length of time people were in my life, but that's nothing but mathematics. 
When a friend is genuine they prove it to you again and again and again. Some pretend well, but actions will always show someone's heart towards you. I am grateful to have friends in my life, but those that I can really trust and that I know are authentic is a very small number, but all you need is one. 

Even if you have only one other soul that you can call a friend, you are indeed blessed.

Aqua Lady

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Me and my son had a fun filled weekend full of activities and I have been truly enjoying summer. We had plans to hit the beach and the weather did not agree with that, so we had to improvise and do some other things instead. I have some great recipes to share, so stay tuned for those. You probably know from my last few posts, how busy I have been. I forgot to post these photos in my aqua dress. I wore this out recently and just love this color. I love the way it looks to wear varying shades of the same color.  Aqua is one of those colors that is soft and pastel, yet vibrant at the same time. Do you agree?

Dress: Go Jane, handbag: c/o Mimi Boutique, Necklace: c/o Mimi Boutique, Sandals: Specialty Boutique

I love this necklace from Mimi Boutique. The color is so perfect for summer and can be paired with so many other colors.

Isn't this bag gorgeous?


So how do you like this monochromatic look?

Have an amazing day!
