My New Year's Resolution for 2010

Happy New Year everyone!
Yes, I know. It's been a very long time since the last time I post something in my blog. So I want to get off a good start and forecast ahead on which places I wanted to visit personally. The start of every year always begins with a personal check list of places I wanted to fulfill my dining adventures. Last year, my list contains places I have high hopes and I was able to check off one third of that list.
See for yourself: The list

This year will be something of a bucket list...places I wanted to go before I die:
    1. Dining Room at Langham Hotel (Pasadena)
    2. The Belvedere at Peninsula (Beverly Hills)
    3. Addison in the Grand Mar (San Diego)
    4. Kiyokawa (Beverly Hills)
    5. Mozza Pizzaeria (Los Angeles)
    6. Alex (Las Vegas)
    7. La Barca (Los Angeles)
    8. Little Dom's (Silverlake)
    9. Mr. Pizza Factory (Koreatown)
    10. Rivera (Downtown)
    11. Moto Restaurant (Chicago)
    12. Sona (West Hollywood)
    13. La Cachette (Santa Monica)
    14. Gorbal (Los Angeles)
    15. Porto's Bakery (Downey, CA)
    16. Langer's Delicatessen (Los Angeles)
    17. Cassell's Hamburgers (Koreatown)
    18. Pollo a la Brasa (Los Angeles)
    19. Arturo's Puffy Taco (La Mirada, CA)
    20. Ceviche Del Rey (Downey, CA)
    21. Tito's Market (El Monte)
    22. Heng Yang Chili King (Monterey Park)
    23. Guelaguetza (Los Angeles)
    24. Lazy Ox Canteen (Los Angeles)
    25. The Waterside Inn (Berkshire, UK)

I am keeping this list much more simpler than last year's list. I managed to get 1/3 of the list checked off, but was woefully short. I might be able to get this "must visit" places accomplish than the first go-around.

Wish me luck!
