Some new things in downtown San Jose

Not actually that new new anymore, but has anyone been to K zzang yet? I finally stopped to look at the pictures in the window last night. They have the usual Korean staples, but nicely presented.

There's now a cupcake cart on W Santa Clara St. When did that happen? It said "The Forge Cupcake Bar" on the side, which apparently is a custom cupcake company. Cart was outside LG Brewing Co. serving the folks on their way to the Pavilion.

I skipped in favor of my usual Eastside Horchata at Treatbot, which took me past the recently opened Chocatoo. Looks like the usual assortment of mousse cakes, not all that different from what you can get in Bijan or Cocola. Not really all that exciting (yet), but it's nice that San Pedro is filling up.

Bonus plug for B2's new location. I love that they're open nice and early on a Saturday morning (7:30am), and their mocha is still better than the one at Verve on 41st, even though they're pulling the same shot. They tell me it's the chocolate. Also, the recent barista throwdown was a lot of fun.
