Another fooding roundup. The Crack Shack for a pretty delicious cole slaw (if you like pickles...) and a so so chicken sausage sandwich. The chicken sausage was completely overwhelmed by the English muffin, but unlike The Nomad, the muffin isn't mine-blowing, it's just a distraction. That said the specialty is fried chicken, so might need to come back to try the rest of the menu.
Dinner a few days later at Sky Express, back at the Mitsuwa Costa Mesa food court. Unexpectedly tasty Hainan chicken in an area not known for Chinese food. Shu mai were not up to par, but at least they were decent sized.
And of course, the results of two weeks of class at Canon's Costa Mesa learning center: food photography.
