“Always enough, the man said while playing his guitar, the song is called Always enough…” 54 Holly Restaurant, located in the heart of Downtown Pasadena on the corner of Holly St. and Raymond Ave. Before entering, I thought to myself, it’s about time we get some American breakfast.

It’s been a while… a long while. You remember the last time you ever felt something special between you and someone you dated?

Inglewood. A wide sprawl urban environment, desolate buildings and lots of blocks on end, chicken establishments who compete under the conditions of Darwin’s principle of natural selection.  There’s something special about these places and I’m not talking about the “hood” mentality.  It’s the beautiful struggle and the adaptation to our evolving society, even with the … Continue reading

Ton-Chan Ramen: Will The Real Ramen Spot Please Stand Up?

“I’ve heard about you.” Ever hear those words echo in the back of your head?
