Blue on Blue

Place: Avalon Hotel, Beverly Hills (DineLA)
Date: February 1, 2009

Seared Scallops with Black Trumpets and Vanilla Tapioca
You would think vanilla tapioca is just for pudding cups, but it made a pleasantly surprising combination with the salty scallops and black thingies that I think are mushrooms but that are called "trumpets". Don't ask me, I'm not in the band.

Entree: Salmon
But for some reason I failed to take a photo. Probably out of sheer hunger.

Caramel Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream
Sounds booooring I know, but this was one of the tastiest chocolate cakes I've had only because it was very moist with a not TOO overpowering chocolate flavor, and better yet, had little crunchy caramel bits in it to give it texture and complimentary flavor. I could've had 10 of these, plus 3 more.
