Dear diary, we had an eggsellent omakase at the intimate #tanoshi on the UES. Every four diners has their own chef, who even makes sure youโ€™re getting your preferred rice to fish ratio. Piece after piece, our tastebuds went on a wild journey. The BYOB policy helps make this a more approachable dinner, though still a special occasion place. This uni, quail egg, and ikura piece (3x egg) was fun and so yummy! #yumdiaries

Dear diary, @bontemps.la has DELICIOUS food and even better desserts. The marshmallow cream was to die for and the crispy flakey pastry underneath this masterpiece left us so happy. On the other hand, the service left something to be desired (we waited an hour after our reservation to be seated, the waiter barely spoke to us) so itโ€™s not a great place to bring parents or impatient people ๐Ÿ˜‚  and doesnโ€™t make us want to run back. But if you do go, get the crab cake for sure, the lamb was fantastic too, and end with this St Honore beauty #yumdiaries

Dear diary, @cliffdivermalibu is one of the new kids on the PCH block but it already feels like home to locals with its great music, beautiful beach decor and delicious food and cocktails. Come in for this hamachi aguachile and the grilled Branzino, stay for great vibes and a game or two of cornhole. Congrats to @thedionshow for bringing us this great new addition to Malibu! #malibueats #cliffdivermalibu #yumdiaries

Dear diary, the Paniolo burger at @ponoburger is truly a work of art. Organic beef patty, English Oak smoked cheddar, Niman Ranch bacon, house made Kona coffee bourbon BBQ sauce, and house made buttermilk beer battered onion rings. Get the salted caramel bacon milkshake to wash it all down! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ” #ponoburger #yumdiaries

Dear diary, we had a delicious Friday night dinner @eatstk. Every dish was a winner but the real MVP was the mac and cheese with a cheesy crust. Thankfully the cocktails are strong (get the spiced watermelon) and the restaurant bar is bumping. We had a fun and scrumptious night ๐Ÿ˜‹#eatstk #macandcheese #yumdiaries

Dear diary, the dreamy creamy langostino mazemen from @iki.ramen might be our new favorite noodle dish. The mentaiko sauce is made of spicy cod roe, pairing perfectly with the lil shellfish and soaking in the squiggly ramen noodles. If you like lobster Mac and cheese youโ€™ll love this #yumdiaries
