Little Tokyo

Last Saturday, we excited to explore a new part of downtown - Little Tokyo! We looked online for the best restaurant there, and many sources agreed that it was Daikokuya. So we went for lunch! A lot of reviews said it is so popular that there is usually a long wait, so we got there at 11:30, thinking we would beat the lunch rush. We kind of did. We waited about 25 minutes and got a place at the bar, but when we left, there was a way bigger crowd waiting on the sidewalk than when we went in.
It was SOOOO good! We split an appetizer of gyoza, and Glenn picked the "shredded pork bowl" for us to share. The shredded pork bowl was HEAVEN. Seriously, probably the best asian food I've ever eaten. The gyoza was good too. I should have taken a better picture of the food, but this is all I have:
Oh, and Little Tokyo is right next door to this:
Recognize it? I think of the movie Get Smart every time we drive by it.
(It is the Disney Concert Hall)

One last thing: In Little Tokyo, we also walked through a collectors' shop. It was so weird! Every wall was jam-packed with these tiny figurines! I can't believe people would actually buy them, but the place was crowded!
