M & M Donuts – Three Hours For One Glorious Blueberry Donut

October 27, 2011

So a donut shop is a donut shop is a donut shop right?  Donuts from this mom and pop shop is the same as this other one.  Well, in this case, no.  First of all, what kind of donut shop opens only at 9PM?  Kind of sketchy right? On weekends, this Disneyland neighbor opens at […]

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 […]

Crepes de Paris – No Passport Necessary

October 18, 2011

Mama D’s Italian Kitchen – Good Service With A Side Of Pink Suace

October 1, 2011

It’s all about the sauce.  Good Italian food is all about the sauce.  The pasta could be cooked perfectly al dente, but without good sauce, you have nothing.  Some like red sauce, and some like it white on the creamy side.  Mama D’s Italian Kitchen in Newport Beach likes it pink.

I see a lot of burger places touting that their burger is the best.  “Best Burgers in Town”, or “The best in the world.”  I mean really.  How can you state that you have the best in the world?  Have you tried all the burgers in the world?  How do you know that? Not only […]

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 […]

Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar – Downtown Disney Cuisine Almost Proves Me Wrong

June 21, 2011

Having a Disneyland Pass has its perks.  Need a little pick up after a long day at work?  Go to Disneyland.  Need some excitement in your usual day?  Ride a ride at Disneyland.  One drawback about this is that there are no good eateries inside the theme park.  None.  So what is a person to […]
