House of Pies – Los Feliz and Griffith Park have Pies Covered

January 20, 2013

What is cooler? Cake or Pie? I mean, you got the all time favorite birthday cake, and pretty much every “pastry” (scone, donut, brownie, etc.) is all part of the cake family. Pie on the other gets no love. The only place showing them love is Mairie, and all the great diners. When I say […]

Dog Haus (Alhambra) – Blutarsky Bringing Back the Tater Tots

December 12, 2012

The hot dog — it is such a simple thing, and everyone loves them. For me, I always liked it simple. A nice steamed bun, good quality all beef dog, and a little bit of mustard and onions – simple and delicious is all I needed. No ketchup please. Once I met Dog Haus in […]

Santa Monica Seafood – 3/4 Fish Market, 1/4 Restaurant & Oyster Bar

December 6, 2012

Driving to the back parking lot of Santa Monica Seafood, I wasn’t expecting much. The rear parking lot and subtle entrance had be fooled. I mean, that’s where the dumpster and all the fish guts are. If I had only just walked to the street entrance, I would have realized how judgmental I was being. […]

Chomp Chomp Nation – Singaporean Food Truck Serving Raffles, Not Ruffles

September 25, 2012

This by far is the most interesting food truck I ever came across. Not that the food truck looked different, but I guess it was because they served Singaporean food. I never really had Singaporean food so this was interesting to me. The flavors and style of the food was unique enough to the point […]

Dog Haus Biergarten – Get Your Dog on, Get Your Beer On

July 29, 2012

After having my first Dog Haus experience at the Alhambra location, I had to see the place where they serve alcohol. The vibe inside is geared towards the drinking crowd. There were TVs everywhere, it’s dark, and there was alcohol everywhere. Not a big drinker by any means, I took advantage of their happy hour […]

Firefly – Snack Time With a Little Tapas

July 11, 2012

It seems to be that everywhere you go, tapas is the hot new topic. Small plates are awesome. You can have as many plates as you want, and variety makes us all happy. You don’t have to order 1 dish and be stuck with it. If you order one wrong dish, you at least have […]

Granville – An Organic and Fresh Detour From Shopping

July 4, 2012

The Americana has a hefty amount of restaurants to choose from. Most are on the high end, a few are on the mid to low end. Granville aims to meet the upscale style and atmosphere with down to earth cuisine. I thought of it as a non commercialized Cheesecake Factory, though it sets itself up […]

Gburger – The Kitchen Sink Almost Makes the Cut

May 18, 2012

There comes a time when you turn from a boy to a man. For me, that time was when I ordered an actual meal from McDonald’s instead of a happy meal. As a kid, the happy meal was the obvious choice. You got your burger and fries with a drink, and a toy to play […]

Jewel City Diner – Standard Issue Burgers and Fries

May 12, 2012

I am pretty sure someone mentioned that Jewel City Diner had good burgers. Maybe I was hearing things. I always told myself, “I can’t wait to try it and see what all the fuss is about”. Well, whoever implanted that thought in my head, I am forever mad at you. After a day of shopping […]

Monkey Business Cafe – Good for the Tummy, Good for the Community

March 22, 2012

I passed by this place many times, and it never appealed to me as a nice place to eat. The outside doesn’t look like a restaurant, and the word monkey doesn’t sound tasty. There is something special about Monkey Business Cafe — they are for non-profit. All of their proceeds go to Hart Community Homes. […]

Dino’s Chicken and Burgers – Orange Chicken, and I’m Not Talking About Panda Express

February 24, 2012

Dino’s is one of those spots in Los Angeles that is equally dingy as it is delicious. As weird as that may sound, it is true. The place is near on Pico, near Vermont — not the nicest location, but not the worst either. This one is the original that started it all. Even though […]

The Counter – This Is My Burger, The Way I Want It

February 17, 2012

Build your own burger.  That is The Counter way.  You sit down and fill out a form.  Yes.  You build your own burger and they bring it to you exactly how you want it. You want eggs? You got it.  You want a different kind of cheese?  You don’t want pickles? That’s cool.  The Counter […]

Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurant – Olden Days Makes Way For Opening Day

January 8, 2012

Remember the olden days? Well, my olden days are like the late 80s, early 90s. I mean before then, like the 60s and 70s. Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlours was booming. Starting from Portland, Oregon, the restaurants were an old time favorite. After being bought out and sold again, they are making a come back in […]

Tommy’s Original Hamburger – Chili And Cheese All Over My Face

December 24, 2011

This is where it all started. Beverly and Rampart — this was the birthplace of the the Original Tommy’s hamburger. Tom Koulax founded Tommy’s in 1946, and the rest is history. Their menu hasn’t changed much. Chili burgers, being their signature item, is what I always get. Can’t mess with a classic. There are a […]

BLT Burger (Mirage) – Lamb’n It Up With Some Waffle Fries

The burger in it of itself is a classic.  More than a sandwich, it is a complete meal all in the grasp of your hands.  It is safe to say that everyone has had a lot of burgers in their life time — it is a go to item at any restaurant.  BLT Burger, located […]

Grill Em All – Rockstar Themed Food Truck Makes Killer Burgers

November 30, 2011

I’m not much of a punk rocker, hard rock kind of guy.  Metallica, Kiss, and all the rest, I never got into it. But that in itself attracted me to this burger food truck.  Grill Em’ All makes some crazy burgers, and I just had to see what they were all about. I ordered the […]

Burger Bar (Mandalay Bay) – Nutella Shake Is All I Need

November 2, 2011

Burger, shake, and fries.  Nothing is more American.  My cousin raved about the burgers at Mandalay Bay’s Burger Bar, so I had to give it a try. Upon walking in, it reminded me of a sports bar slash Irish pub.  It even had accents of a classic American diner.  The TV on each booth even […]

Clancy’s Clubhouse – A Sports Bar Heading In The Right Direction

November 2, 2011

Hungry before going out to Disneyland, we needed a bite to eat. Knowing of course that Disneyland had not a single decent place to get a good meal, we decided to eat outside, but near by.  Clancy’c Clubhouse was just around the corner, and it was one of those places I always pass by, and […]

Hard Rock Cafe (Universal City) – Sadly, All Around The World

October 24, 2011

Remember back in the days, before The Grove, before The Americana?  Everyone used to hang out at Universal City Walk.  Though still a popular spot, it wasn’t what it used to be – at least to me.  After watching a movie on IMAX, my family and friends wanted to eat. This was the first time […]

Colima Burger – A Hole In The Wall You Shoudn’t Patch Up

October 21, 2011

Colima Burger is one of those spots.   It is a no name, hole in the wall burger joint.  Interestingly though, the interior was clean and the food wasn’t really greasy.  Good and bad, depending on how you look at it. Their menu is pretty standard — burgers and fries.  The food here was alright, nothing […]
