I just ate a little foie gras today during lunch. FUCK THIS GUY, he's such a fag:

A little back story... foie gras (you know, that duck liver spread) was illegal for a few months in CA. Then became legal again as of yesterday.

I KNOW - I haven't posted one of these or much of anything in a while. Life, family, jiujitsu and maybe a little work and travel have gotten in the way. Admittedly, my first dip into modern social media (Instagram) has gotten most of my brainless spare time.

But fuck all that. You don't wanna hear my jibba-jabba. Let's talk about this place, my favorite lunch spot right now in this great city. 

You know me, I wouldn't take time out to talk about ANY old place. And with this place, I'm seriously a little infatuated, more than I had been with Phnom Penh Noodle on Cherry and Siem Reap on Anaheim. Maybe I just need to go revisit those, to rekindle those warm feelings.

Little La Lune tho - its nothing really that special inside. I'd say its on par with Phnom Penh down the street. Probably nicer than Siem Reap, yeah.

The headlining dish here, their version of the Phnom Penh Noodle (yes, the other restaurant on Cherry is actually called that). Thin rice noodles, shrimps, beef, pork liver, scallion, garnished with fried onions and garlic. And if you order if you order "dry style" like I did... comes with the broth on the side. Included is this amazing pork bone in the mother fucker! Yes. Its beautiful. You get your spoon, pour a little hot broth over your noodles, eat, pour, eat, pour. Don't be doing something crazy and dumping it all in at once (just get it "wet style" instead). I highly recommend dry style. 

Last and least but very necessary, fresh bean sprouts and limes. Can't do it without it. 

You need to eat here. I highly recommend it. 

2054 East Pacific Coast Highway, Long Beach, CA 90804

By the way, this place closes early. 8am to 5pm daily.


I was in Japan a weeks back and came across this stud. I actually got out of the car at a traffic light to take this snap.

RAN INTO THE AMAZING ERIC WEBB Alex's Bar on Saturday evening. Since I been shaving my own head, I rarely get to see this guy anymore.

And of course Rob Fortier is pretty handsome himself too but he doesn't have Speed Master tattooed on his forehead like Eric does, which wins bonus points.

On Sunday I went to the World Jiu Jitsu Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center and this is what I have to share: 

I made fun of team mates, like Lizzie here, that was competing and couldn't indulge in amazing acai bowls. I made good mother fucking acai bowls but the ones at the jiujitsu tournaments are solid...  and speaking of solid, Lizzie's performance was just that. Everybody was impressed with how she handled the competition.
I MET RENZO GRACIE. Look, I'm like all close to him, like I'm his best friend and shit. Seriously though, I was ready to invite him over to my house for dinner. What a fucking stud this guy. Tough as nails and cool as all hell. Gotta rep Rod too. 
I did the Renato Laranja show all by myself.

...I just wanted to say, I obviously miss Hawaii but I also really, Really, REALLY do love California as well. 

Just wanted to make that clear.
