it was a long long coastal drive from Monterey to Los Angeles
night fell and our policy was no driving at night, so we stopped over at San Simeon for dinner
pretty candle holder
and also for the night at Motel 6 which cost us approx usd $75 a night for 2 pax
The next morning was super foggy
couldn't even see the sea clearly
Passed by a small cafe and decided that it shall be the place for breakfast
vibrant cups that made my day... =)
my breakfast set at usd$6+...super yummilious hash brown
then another long long drive away, we stopped for an hour of shopping
spotted the one shop that i insisted that i must go
mad luv luv the peanut brittle ...small small box cost usd$6.... heartache... but no choice, still have to buy
another long long drive away and finally we were back in Los Angeles
Kim was recommending 'cioppino' right from day 1 of the trip so we decided to find a good good restaurant and had 道道地地的 cioppino
Happi trio with our bid on... ready to attack our cioppino even before it was served!!!
It's an Italian-american dish, typically a combination of crab, clam, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels and fish all sourced from the Pacific Ocean. The seafood is then combined with fresh tomatoes in a wine sauce, and served with toasted bread, either local sourdough or French bread.
it was finger tasting good ....this photo above showed half a potion worth of goodness.... each potion was humogous so Joyce and I share one order and the restaurant staff was nice enough to split it onto two smaller plates for us... thumbs up for excellent service... =D...
then it was back to our last motel for the trip at approx usd$90 per night for 2 pax
