One last review on my food venture in LA! Sorry for the late post. I’ve been very busy lately; last week I had my spring break, so it was easy for me to update stuff quickly. But since school has started, I need to prioritize my homework and assignments :)
Anyway, on with the review.
FuRaiBo is a Japanese grill restaurant. So, they don’t serve sushis and sashimis. FuRaiBo is a franchised restaurant, but this is the only one in LA. It is located at Sawtelle Boulevard.
The first meal I tried was the fried sandwich. It had vegetables and cheese in it. If you pay attention, you can see the melted cheese in between those breads. I’m not sure whether they were actually breads, though, because they were really soft; they might even be tofu! But the breads (yes, I will regard them as bread) were slightly more chewy than tofu, so I’m not sure.
This was the grilled beef tongue… I kind of forgot what it was before, because the picture doesn’t make it look memorable (it kind of looks like beef teriyaki in the photo) but then my friend reminded me that it was the tongue, and so I recalled the memory of eating it :) The beef tongue was good; it tasted like soft beef. I know you guys might be disgusted by what it is, but since I come from Indonesia, a place where people eat lots of beef tongues, it was totally normal for me to eat this kind of thing. Compared to other beef tongues, this was quite plain. I guess since the restaurant is serving this dish in United States, customers might already think of it as something exotic, so FuRaiBo doesn’t have to try harder to make it more interesting. Moving on…
Now this one was great! It’s the grilled gindara. The meat of the gindara fish was so tender that it just melted on your tongue! And same as Dodilia, I also don’t usually like fish, but this one was GOOD! The meat was as soft as butter…………… :)
So just to give you a heads up, I am going to venture around Manhattan this weekend. I might check out this restaurant on 55th and 5th, which serves Spaghetti Ice. Sojabean calls it Spaghetti eis, but I’d rather call it Ice Spaghetti, or Icetti :D Basically it’s ice cream that is served like a spaghetti, with berry sauce that represents the tomato sauce. So please keep yourself updated with Tasteritos’ latest reviews!
