Rasta Pasta- ToCS

Last Monday we went to Rasta Pasta on Tejon. I've wanted to try it for a while, partly because of their colorful sign, and it always smells really good when I ride past. I ordered the "Rasta Pasta" which had two chillies next to it on the menu. Holy shiz, it was good. And definitely had two chillies worth of kick to it.
The restaurant itself is pretty new, it used to be a wireless store, and it was converted in to a restaurant. It's totally open inside with a really nice mural on the back wall, and has a decent sized outdoor patio. We opted to eat inside since it was 95° outside, but it's always nice to have that option.
The atmosphere was good, the food was really good, and the prices were also good, especially for the amount of food. The also have different lunch and dinner prices which is definitely a plus.
My rating: Sunshine!
Part of the mural.

Got a new car two weeks ago. I thought I should share a photo with all of you. It's a ton of fun, I really like it, and it'll be a great car for bikes.
Ali dubbed it "Emmett" but I've never named a car before, so I forget that it has a name... Good thing I'm not a parent.

Catch Up

Once again, I've been slacking on my blogging duties. We've done three more ToCS dinners. Here are the reviews. They're short because I can't remember all the clever things I was going to write three weeks ago. Sorry.

Slayton's BBQ
We went to the downtown location which apparently isn't like the original. It's "fancy." Not like steak house fancy, but BBQ fancy. You know, tables that aren't sticky, no paper towels on the table, and no bottles of extra sauce- BBQ Fancy. The food itself was good, I'd say Gold-Fireworks (between Gold Star and Fireworks) The atmosphere took away from the overall rating- slow service, the tables were really tight so we were right up against the other group in the restaurant. I'd say try the original before the downtown location.

Saigon Cafe
Vietnamese Food. Good, light, summer time food. Service was good too, nice atmosphere. Fireworks.

Everest Nepal Restaurant
Nepalese and Indian food. The waiter told us we were crazy for all trying to order Chicken Curry. He told us what we should order instead, and it was all super tasty. Chicken Curry, Chicken Tikka Masala and a chicken kabab. (The name escapes me right now.) Ali and I also got Mango Lassi which is sort of like a smoothie, but lighter. It's a yogurt-y drink over ice. Really, really good.
