Weekly Food Diary | Momofuku and Disneyland Fried Chicken

On this week's weekly food diary I'm eating lots of pizza and lots of salads. So, that kind of balances out, right?

{Monday}
11am: Granny smith apple and iced tea.
1pm: Half grilled cheese sandwich, half goddess salad at Panera Bread. The last time I ate here was years ago and had a really bad experience with the salad. Looks like Panera has redeemed itself as the grilled cheese was tasty and not oily at all.
4pm: At a Bellacures mani/pedi session, I can't resist the spread and snack on the kale salad and marcona almonds.
8:30pm: A well-balanced dinner from Taste of Tehran, our go to Persian takeout restaurant. I always get  the beef koobideh, rice, and salad and tonight is no exception.

{Tuesday}
12pm: Yogurt parfait.
4pm: Granny smith apple and half of a thinkthin protein bar.
7pm: I'm starving and heat up some leftover rice while waiting for M to come home.
9pm: We originally wanted to go to Little Izakaya by Katsuya but there's a long wait (it's the only restaurant in the valley with a wait!) So we go across the street and have dinner at Public School 818. I snack on bacon cheddar tots and finish a big bowl of kale caesar salad.

 10pm: Juicy nectarine.

{Wednesday}
11:30am: Hunger strikes early. I have a yogurt parfait.
3pm: Hunger strikes again. I eat a granny smith apple and half of a thinkthin protein bar.
7pm: I have dinner with an old friend (we've known each other since third grade!) at Fresh Corn Grill in Westwood. I get the skirt steak with grilled corn and glazed yams.
9pm: My low carb dinner isn't as fulfilling as I'd hoped so I supplement with a PB&J sandwich.

{Thursday}
12:30pm: Lunch at Google with M and his sister. I customize a delicious salad from the salad bar and can't resist the pizza so I have two slices.

8pm: The delicious chicken, avocado, and cheese panini from Il Tramezzino in Beverly Center, an unassuming cafe with some of the best sandwiches in LA.


{Friday}
11am: A small yogurt parfait before we head out on our annual trip to Disneyland!!!!
2pm: The fried chicken meal at The Plaza Inn. For once, I actually prefer the breast meat as it's really tender and the flavor is just perfect.

4pm: A frozen strawberry lemonade while going through a few rides at California Adventure.
7pm: The Montagu (roast beef, turkey, tomato, lettuce, swiss, and horseradish sauce) sandwich from Earl of Sandwich at Downtown Disney while watching Golden State clinch Game 4.
9pm: I decide to splurge because we're at Disneyland and it's Friday night so M and I split a cookie sundae while watching the Paint the Nite parade.


{Saturday}
2pm: A yogurt parfait in the car on our way to the airport. We're going to NYC for a few days for work, play, and belly aching eating.
4pm: We're not landing until midnight so I fuel up with a kale and chicken salad M grabbed for me from Trader Joe's. I love the crunchy sunflower seeds and the mild dressing.
5pm: A ripe but not so sweet peach.
6pm: I wake up from my nap and have a peanut butter and nuts granola bar.
1am (EST): Seolleongtang (milky bone broth noodle soup) at Gammeeok in New York's K-town though M calls it a K-block. The broth contains a lot of calcium and collagen and tastes so comforting after a long flight. The restaurant overlooks the street so we eat our food while being entertained by drunk people try to hook up with the right ubers and the right people.


{Sunday}
12pm: Fried habenero chicken, cheesy grits, and pork buns at Momofuku Ma Peche. The grits are so good and comes in a huge bowl. The chicken pairs well with lime juice and the pork buns are legendary.

1pm: Confetti birthday truffle cake from Momofuku Milk Bar.
8pm: Dinner at M's favorite Italian restaurant Emporio in Nolita. We share the Tuscan kale salad, the amazing charred octopus, the tagiatelle bolognese, and a sopressata, artichoke, and mushroom pizza. Everything's delicious and I'm stuffed halfway into the second slice of my pizza.
10pm: I have a few bites of M's ice cream roll from Frozen Sweet in Little Italy. It's a Thai ice cream shop where everything's made to order. They pour the flavored cream onto a refrigerated platform and mix it with toppings.
