Food Scene
A small, intimate restaurant that is great for dates or a small group of friends. The cuisine is Lebanese. My favorite dish is the Mediterranean salad just be sure to add the chicken shawarma if you want meat.

It looks a little rough around the edges but don't mistake it for the quality of their food. This restaurant is not fusion, it actually offers two separate menus, one Thai and one Japanese including sushi. Our favorites include the green curry, spicy eggplant, pad thai, and the red dragon roll.

The best coffee in Long Beach. My favorite is the flat white, it's hard to find many places that can do it right like they do. But they do well with all things coffee.
