Green Onion Pancakes

After our involved book buying session at Scholastic Book Fairs, Toni and I planned to drive up to Hacienda Heights to try a Taiwanese Chinese place called Earthen Restaurant. I had heard of Earthen through a friend and seen pictures of their delicious looking food. I was particularly intrigued by the Green Onion Pancakes. They looked so good int the pictures I'd seen. Well, they turned out to be Toni's favorite item we ordered, although everything we had was great.

When we arrived at Earthen, we found it was closed. It seems that they close for a break between 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm between lunch and dinner. So we went a couple doors down to RJ Patisserie since we had a 25 minute wait until Earthen reopened. It's a French bakery that has a case full of desserts that are works of art. They gave us a sample of their Tiramisu and Raspberry Cake. They were both very good, the Tiramisu being the clear winner according to Toni and myself. I ordered an Iced Coffee for Toni. They serve it in a tall glass with a small ice filled glass with creamers and a little glass pitcher of simple syrup to sweeten the refreshment. It's such a neat presentation that adds an elegant touch I found very appealing. Toni ordered a piece of Prince Charles Cake to go, which we shared later in the evening at home.
