Gardena: Happy Cup Ramen

Driving back from Venice, we decided to stop at Gardena and see if the Happy Cup Ramen was still there.  We knew they were in front of the South Bay Toyota at 12:30, and took a chance. What we did not know was they close at 2:30, and reopen at 4:00.  We pulled up at 3:25 and found them parked… but not open for business.

Venice: DimSumTruck, CiaoBella, and KO Taco

Today the Anaheim Ducks had their 2nd day of training camp at the Anaheim Ice. After the first scrimmage, Karen joined us for breakfast. During breakfast, I looked at twitter and asked her if she wanted to chase some new trucks.  We took off from Fullerton and headed toward Venice in search for new trucks…

We took freeways 57, 91, 605, 105, 405, and 90 to get to “The Brig”.  We went to get food from the Dim Sum Truck, but new truck Ciao Bella was also there, and it was their second day in business. While walking back to our car, we saw KO Taco Truck across the street.
