Phlight Restaurant, Uptown Whittier, CA

Friends and I went to Phlight Restaurant in Uptown Whittier (Los Angeles County) tonight. It was my first time at Phlight, and I found the food yummy and restaurant light and comfy. The staff very attentive and my friend D enjoyed the wine selection.

Unfortunately, I only have the names of the dishes...the menu has the description and ingredients. I thought that info was on their website, but my mistake. So here are some shaky photos with ISO 1600 ;)

P.S. After some coffee at the Coffee Bean (where I had a delicious waffle - it was studded with syrup nuggets...kinda like a grown up McGriddle! See here for a photo)...anyway, we came back to our cars and the dance studio next door was having a MIME show. OMG. Remember my fear of dolls? Well, mimes are just living dolls. Living dolls that sneak up on you and kill you. Well, that's where my imagination goes. I ran to my car and am sleeping with the lights on tonight. Luckily, I have a full and happy stomach.

Hello Food Librarian. Delicious post! I've started calling our leftover meals "flights". They are much more appetizing!!

Best,
