I went to the Griffith Observatory today but unfortunately it was closed! We took loads of pictures outside anyway haha. Great list—I’m going to Disneyland and Santa Monica Pier for sure! Thank you for all the recommendations!!! :)
April 11, 2013 - Nuvo, Greenbelt 2
Photos from Jillian’s iPhone
Last week, I went out with three of my best friends once again for dinner. We tried this restaurant called Nuvo for the first time, after finding Sala Bistro and Chateau 1771 both unusually full on a random weekday (“Who even meets up on a Thursday night?!” “Us!”). The place is a little cramped and we didn’t want to sit outside, so we were seated in the lounge upstairs. We literally had a candlelit dinner, which we didn’t mind because of the cozy atmosphere and it seemed like we had the entire floor to ourselves.
The food did not disappoint. Although Jill and I took an awfully long time deciding what to order (“I want to get salmon” “Seafood? That sounds sad”), I was satisfied with my main course. I got the addictive chicken, which is honey-vinegar-glazed half chicken served with garlic fried rice and salad greens. They weren’t kidding about the half chicken—it was a huge serving, but I finished most of it ‘cause it was that good.
We also had the same drinks, the Ice Tropez. I’m not much of a casual drinker, but our waitress recommended it and Chris just ordered it for everyone. Thank God because it’s the best-tasting cocktail I’ve ever tasted in my life so far! And because I always keep an eye out for things that look interesting (in a literal sense), I can’t help but notice the design of the bottle. Check it out at their awesome website. I think I can say no to almost any alcoholic beverage but this.
(I find it hard to update lately because I don’t have any new pictures except for those that I post on Instagram. The camera’s always with my sister, who keeps going out of town. I’m busy with lots of other things as well, which I’d love to talk about actually, but I can’t seem to put them all together in one post. Oh well, hope I get to update soon!)
That’s really nice to know! I’ll definitely try to post more. Thank you!! :)
