Literally had Chik-Fil-A twice in four days this week. I’m obsessed. For some reason I didn’t really care for it back in California, but since I moved, I see why people love it. (Although I don’t like the sauce – boo, I know).

El Tiempo Cantina

On Friday, we decided to try the El Tiempo right across the street from The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation. It was pretty good. Can you tell how big my tacos were? I was only able to finish one.

Kim Son buffet

On Saturday, we were craving the buffet at Kim Son on Bellaire, so we decided to drive out there for lunch. So good. If you go to the buffet during the week I believe it’s a lot cheaper. Definitely try it out if you haven’t been.

Fitting room selfie. After lunch on Saturday we decided to drive out to the outlets in Cypress to see if there were any good sales going on. Picked up a couple of things, including this jacket from Calvin Klein.

Common Bond Cafe and Bakery

On Sunday we had brunch at Common Bond Bakery & Cafe in Montrose. It actually just opened last Tuesday, and the buzz must’ve been good because it was pretty packed. We had to wait in line for about 30-40 minutes to order our food. Definitely worth the wait though. The interior and vibe really reminded me of Bottega Louie – especially because of all of the pastries. If you ever visit Los Angeles, Bottega Louie is a must try!

grilled cheese and sweet corn chowder

I ended up ordering the grilled cheese and soup – the soup ended up being a sweet corn chowder. DELISH.

pastries to take home

Of course we had to order some pastries to-go!

exterior of Common Bond Cafe and Bakery

Not only is the interior of Common Bond appealing, but so is the outside. Definitely fits right into the neighborhood. We’ll be back soon!
