1108 South Baldwin Avenue Arcadia, California
I just had one in TPE a few weeks ago but this one is in LA. A bit out of city and skin felt a bit thicker but still good. It does not come in bamboo ring tray but in stainless steamer, may be due to US regulation and no booze. Get a license!
$60 for four.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, at Disney California Adventure. I kind a guessed it it has something to do with elevator since the structure was tall but did not expect how scare it was. To me it is a similar concept as Space Mountain but pre-show build up is nice and good. Even employers pumps us up till the minute they close the elevator door. Nice. Do not try with stomach full.

Nice Sushi. Ex-French chef is cooking it so it comes out a bit different but still it is good. Kind a bit pricey but I do not know the going price for LA area so I say I have to try there again. $130 for four. There was Hideki Matsui's autograph on the wall.

天廚菜館 Beijin food in Taipei. We had sea-cucumber, jelly fish and some other stuff including Peking Duck. The whole duck was shared among 20 of us or so. The Duck was not too jucy and the wrap was too thick, vegy had dull scent thus made this whole duck roll less than average. Other food were alright but not so special. Some other duck I had in HKG or SF taste far better.
老鄧坦担麺 Tantan noodle in Taipei. It is off the main street near Zhongxiao Dunhua. Go a few block on north and there is a small shop like this. Tantan noodle that I know is soup based but ones they have is dry based in sesame paste with a bit of hot oil. Clerk tells me to eat quickly but could not make out his english to why? Anyway, I like it. Thick paste and thick noodle goes well. A bit like eating noodle with peanut butter. Kind a strange combination but that is kind a food I look for when I travel=strange combination that you do not see at your home country.
90NT for large whic is like 3 bucks.
Redbelt 2008. It had certain air to the movie. No special effect while fighting and this Jyujitsu not as fancy as Kanfoo, it has own way of strength. Heavy moves. Story wise I was a bit confused about Tim Allen's role and the founder knew about Mike... Anyway, alright movie. Could watch with kids, they dig it or not (since it is a bit slow) is different matter. $12.
