SKIPPING AROUND L.A.









I don't normally go crazy over coffee but Intelligentsia makes some pretty yummy brews. However, I think I'm in love with their sea of blue tiles even more. And that morning, layered on top of all that awesomeness, stood two lovely ladies in colorful prints to cut through the peacock tiles. It was perfect.

Speaking of lovely ladies, I had lunch with Victoria and Satsuki at Gingergrass, a Vietnamese restaurant nestled in Silver Lake. I was told to order their pork chops rice, slightly different from typical Vietnamese but still very flavorful.
