The Misfit Restaurant + Bar, Sta Monica, Los Angeles

Website: Address:  Third Street Promenade, 225 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401 Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Feedback:  Trendy Location with Good Cocktails Food trying to be "trendy" but fails in so many ways ( menu ) Crispy Lobster Nik Niks - 3 lobster sliders - I felt it was a waste of good lobster to deep fry it and put it in the sliders.  I'm sure there's better ways of "deep frying" it if they really want Ahi Burger - Tuna burger with Avocado.  You should really not order this.  The tuna is not fresh. It's basically just sort of "crumbles" when you eat... not the normal fresh seared tuna that you get anywhere. Dixie Fried Chicken - Deep fried boneless Chicken - it was OK but nothing fantastic House Made French Fries - Reminded me of In N Out Fries :)  Dixie Fried Chicken  Crispy Lobster

Thai Dishes, Sta Monica, Los Angeles

Website: Address :  111 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401 Food Rating: 4 out of 5 star Feedback: Generally food was just OK (except for Calamari which I didn't like) but the price is very affordable.  It was 4.5 in Zagat though. I've tried so much better food in other Thai places but good thing is that this is just near the 3rd Street Promenade and not very crowded. Shrimps and Scallops - OK! Fresh Spring Roll - realy wanted that to go with peanut sauce :( Chicken Cashew Nuts - didn't really like it. It was kinda plain Satay was OK. Calamari - not good, skip it. Coconut Juice! Yeahh!! Fish Filet! Yellow Curry Chicken Fried Rice

Website: February 4 - 7, 2016 If you are in Iceland during the Winter Months, try to coincide with their Winter Light Festival.  Most places have this sort of festival to bring a bit of light and happiness during the lonely months of winter.

This was the combination platter that we ordered Mashed potato with Fish Flakes Tasted like Potato Gratin with Fish flakes.. I Like it.
