Gastronomy Spotlight: The Buttermilk Truck @ Telesis Credit Union, Chatsworth, CA

Sorry for the non-posting, job hunting is kicking my ass.

Anyhow, back to business.

If any of your stomachs think like mine, then breakfast is the business, no matter what time of day it is. That being said, I went to try the vittles at the Buttermilk Truck that I'd read was making a stop local here in the valley not too long ago.
I know I've voiced my opinion on the trend these trucks have spawned, but reading about owner Gigi Pascual's concept/mission statement and knowing that breakfast items are involved, I had to, at the very least, check it out. The menu is short and simple, but yours truly being ever the fatass, it was still hard to narrow down what I wanted to try.
I thought I'd show up early and avoid the line, but sure enough, there was a wait regardless.
Since my ladyfriend Jan couldn't decide what she wanted over the phone, I just grabbed a smittering of what I could gather was good. Sorry, my pics lacked detail in my dark-ass room.

(L-R) breakfast sliders (toasted Hawaiian bread with shoyu scrambled eggs, sauteed onions, and Portuguese sausage), Red Velvet chocolate chip pancake bites, buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwich w/chicken apple sausage, & rosemary garlic hash browns
How was it all? Jan and I unanimously said, "PIFF!" Check out their weekly schedule and try it out for yourself. I'm determined to try their late-night items, and Jan's sad I didn't get the mini donuts as well. (Pig!) Definitely worth checking out.

Sutorīto Faitā

We've all laughed our asses off at the original JCVD-starring abomination of the 90s, and grimaced at the recent Kristin Kreuk "Chun Li" adaptation. This trailer for yet another attempt at capturing the Street Figther storyline in real-life shows some promise. The Ken actually looks like Ken, although that puny Ryu is somewhat off-putting. Judge for yourself.
