Finally Went To Slapfish!

I have no idea why I waited this long to try out Slapfish, but a few days ago I finally made it over to the Huntington Beach location for lunch. From the exterior of the restaurant it looks very unassuming. Once you walk in the design is very casual and clean. Immediately you can tell […]

Gimme Mah Ribs!

I am always on the lookout for new good ribs places.  Living in Orange County gives me a lot of access to good ol’ American food.  Believe it or not, finding a place to chow down on some ribs isn’t too easy.  When a friend of mine introduced me to The Tulsa Rib Company I […]

I have been wanting to try this cute little bar & cafe since I knew Bonnie Gokson opened this pastry shop.  There are two locations for C’est La B and I went to the one located at Tai Hang, Hong Kong.  From the exterior you can tell it is a charming little place with a butterfly theme. […]

Wild Wild West

Rarely do I ever give a bad review.  I don’t think I have had such terrible service in a restaurant in my entire life.  I am not exaggerating.  I am a pretty patient person when it comes to most things.  I am not one of those diners in a restaurant that keep complaining or put […]

Missing my Bánh Mì

Bánh mì is what the Vietnamese call their bread and I am missing it!  I got my craving fulfilled recently, though, during my trip back to California over Christmas.  Lee’s Sandwich is a very popular chain and the one I frequent is near the UCI campus in Irvine near where I live.  Although I am spending […]
