Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner – Fried Chicken and the Boysenberry in the Center of it all

June 29, 2012

Knott’s Berry Farm is know for many things. It really was a farm back in the day — it’s not just a name. Today, kids know it for Snoopy, teens seek thrills on their roller coasters, and adults and old folks know Knott’s for their jams. For me, I am all about the food. Mrs. […]

La Brea Bakery should be known as the bread mecca of Los Angeles — to a degree, it is. Focusing on artisanal breads, they sell breads all around Los Angeles, and even some around the world. La Brea Bakery started it 1989 on La Brea Ave. The architects of a historical building wanted a bakery, […]

Bouchon Bakery (Venetian) – Not Your Ordinary Nutter Butter Cookie Sandwich

May 28, 2012

After eating at Bouchon, I really wanted some dessert from Bouchon Bakery. After looking around, I could not find it.  Sadly, I gave up and was on my way. Next time around, I was determined to find it.  It was no wonder I couldn’t find it the first time — It was a small bakery […]

Porto’s Bakery (Burbank) – Gettin’ My Cheese Roll Fix

May 14, 2012

Porto’s Porto’s Porto’s.  Burbank is lucky to have a Porto’s.  Any city to have a Porto’s is lucky — Glendale and Downy included.  The thing about Porto’s is that there is always a line, a long long line.  You will never find yourself inside a Porto’s and be the only one ordering something.  I never […]

Urth Caffé – Lattes and Teas Become a Celebrity Amongst Celebrities

May 8, 2012

Search for Urth Caffe at Google, and under the Images tab, you will find more pictures of celebrities than actual food. Weird right? Kind of ridiculous if you ask me. They must do a lot of business just on the paparazzi alone. I wonder if normal/regular people go here. I mean, I’m normal — I’m […]

Joan’s On Third – An Experience with My Gourmet Sandwich

March 27, 2012

I stepped into Joan’s On Third, and I instantly fell in love. The collection of food items inside and the marketplace was abundant, and a bit overwhelming. If you are in the mood for cheeses, olives, bread, and condiments, they offer a variety of the gourmet stuff. In the kitchen, soups, salads, sandwiches, breakfast, and […]

Auntie Em’s Kitchen – Uber Thin Chocolate Chip Cookies and Red Velvet Cupcakes

February 13, 2012

I remember watching The Food Network with Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes. He did a feature on Los Angeles in the show Sugar High. He visited Auntie Em’s Kitchen in Eagle Rock and tried these really thin chocolate chip cookies. Since then, I have been itching to visit this place and try the cookies, […]

Campanile – Eating Lunch With A Celebrity

February 5, 2012

It is that time again. Dine LA is in full effect. Though probably over by now, it gave patrons like me a chance to support Los Angeles restaurants and eat like a king for relatively cheap. After doing much research and investigation, I came across Campanile. What got to me was the history of it […]

Doughboys Cafe – After School Special And Potatoes For Breakfast

January 9, 2012

Breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day, albeit, I don’t eat breakfast as often as I should.  I speak of breakfast as in a quiet meal in the morning — A quiet meal where I am not rushed or anything (Translation. Saturday or Sunday). I absolutely love breakfast on the weekend.  Eggs, bacon, […]

Foxy’s Coffee Shop – Upscale Diner Or Affordable Fancy Pancy

December 12, 2011

Known for their breakfast and as a coffee shop, I didn’t know what to expect for dinner.  Upon arriving, I was swayed between the two ends — hole in the wall diner or fancy date restaurant. The wine bottles and dim lighting give it that date atmosphere.  Low priced menu and siner style food give […]

Larchmont Bungalow – Red And Blue Velvet Takes The Pancake

November 28, 2011

I want to make it clear that I do not support this restaurant in any way.  I understand of their actions to the community and I am only blogging about the food.  To my understanding, Larchmont Bungalow is in a legal battle with the city.  Back in 2009, they agreed not to make it a […]

Alcove Cafe and Bakery – Breakfast, Lunch, And Dessert All In One Massive Meal

November 6, 2011

Halloween was last month, but thinking now, it wasn’t even a week ago.  Having plans to go on the Hollywood Hay Ride, we needed a place to lunch near Los Feliz.  Alcove Cafe was perfect. The seating area was peaceful and the menu was plentiful.  The pay first, then sit was perfect for our group. […]

Sugar Factory (Planet Hollywood) – All That Candy, All That Glitter

October 19, 2011

No, I didn’t eat here.  I just visited the store that was right across from Earl of Sandwich, inside Planet Hollywood.  It was cool to see all of the interesting candies they sold.  I’m not going to lie, this store is for chicks, not me.  They had clothes for girls, candies, cupcakes and such.  They […]

Blue Ribbon Bakery (Disneyland) – Main Street Cinamon Bun On Me

October 18, 2011

Having an annual pass at Disneyland is a perk. 10% off almost everything at the theme park is awesome. The best part of course would be being able to go pretty much whenever I want, excluding those annoying black out dates of course. Walking around, riding rides, and watching the fireworks really take it out […]

85C Bakery Cafe – The Last Pastry That Made It To My Stomach

September 1, 2011

Hearing much rave about 85C Bakery Cafe in Irvine, I had to check it out.  I have been to my share of Asian bakeries, and they are all pretty much the same.  Besides the degree of quality these bakeries have amongst each other, they all work the same way.  You get a tray, pick out […]

Mi Piace – Mi Non Piace

August 9, 2011

There comes a time where Italian food is all you need.  You got carbs cooked to perfection, oils and sauces of your liking, maybe some kind of protein, and cheese.  Simple goodness.  This is all I want from Italian cooking.   Maybe I totally ordered the wrong dishes, or this place isn’t what its all […]

Susina Bakery & Cafe – Yummy Pastries, Yummy Cakes, Yummy Pies

August 1, 2011

This cute little bakery is really what Los Angeles needs more of.  Quickly, Los Angeles is losing that touch of sidewalk cafes and corner bakeries. If you go to London, Paris, or New York, sidewalk cafes and shops are all scattered throughout town.  On your daily commute, you can easily pass by a handful of […]

Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie – Chocolate Fountains and World Records (Bellagio)

July 19, 2011

Sometimes you enter a place, and you are instantly happy.  The colors and the decor just pop and makes you somewhat feel like a kid again.  This feeling I am talking about is the feeling you get walking into Disneyland or in my case, Walking into Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie. Visually this place is stunning.  The mellow […]
