that suman looks killer! Too bad Alejandro's is closed, I never got to try that place out.

I was really bummed too when I heard Alejandro's closed, but at least, I have some pics of their food to remember them by. And yes, that suman was totally killer. :)

Finally! I found a great local foodie blog!
I'm putting you on my Google reader.

That Indonesian fruit/bean ice looks like something I'd really like to try. I yelped it, but found that it's now closed! =(
