Since our return from Tokyo, my sister and I have been on the hunt for Harajuku crepes that taste remotely close to the ones we had at Cafe Crepe. While we did find one place in Toronto that can suppress our cravings for the time being, it definitely doesn’t measure up to the authentic ones in Japan. #sorrynotsorry

So when we heard about Beverley Hill’s Harajuku Crepe, we knew we had to pay a little visit during our latest trip to the Golden Coast. Aside from the fact that the café was only two streets away from Rodeo Drive (hello shopping snack!), the real reason we decided to hit it up was that it offered green tea-flavoured crepes. And knowing how much we love green tea-flavoured food (green tea latte, green tea kit kat, green tea Pocky and you get the idea), you can see why we made sure this dessert pit stop was on our itinerary. (FYI crepes also come in other flavours like chocolate, earl grey and buckwheat if green tea ain’t you thing.) Loving the fact that we can customize our order, my sister opted for a green tea crepe with green tea ice-cream topped with mochi balls, while I satisfied my sweet tooth with a good old nutella and banana crepe. With delicious Harajuku crepes in hand, we braved the California heat and continued our Beverley Hill’s window-shopping stylishly and deliciously.

P.S. This is what I wore to this crepe joint. 🙂

Travelling to Los Angles with our dogs definitely has its perks (cuddle sessions!), but when it came to deciding on where to grab lunch and dinner, it caused quite the head-scratching situation.

Prior to our LA trip, I already was set to visit Fred Segal, especially since my editor convinced me to go (you know, so I can quote Clueless). So when it came time to looking for pet-friendly lunch spots in the area, I was super psyched to see that Mauro Cafe was on the list. Not only is it well recommended for those who enjoy dining with their furry friends, it’s also a fave place for celebrities. Celebrity spotting may be one reason to check out the restaurant, but I have you know that the food and atmosphere are reasons enough to stand on its own. And the best part? You can work off that meal with some post-lunch shopping. It’s a win-win.

Arriving around 11:30 AM, we were able to choose from both the breakfast and lunch menu (thanks to my serious strategic planning). But little did we know, the more options we had, the harder it was to decide on what to eat and drink. After our server circled back for the 3rd and final time, we finally had our hearts set on 4 delicious dishes: broccoli shrimp spaghetti, seafood fettuccine, smoked salmon eggs benedict and nutella-filled French crepes to share family style. And to kick off the meal, we sipped on refreshing cucumber mint lemonades to keep us cool and hydrated in the desert heat. ‘Tis the life.
