Santa Ana: Soho taco caters

Soho Taco is not just a taco truck.  They also do catering for private events. I was invited to Soho Taco’s Tasting Night at their corporate office at 132 Dyer in Santa Ana to try their newly expanded catering menu.  I had no idea what a pleasant surprise this […]

Santa Ana: Soho Taco food truck 

I’ve been following the SoCal food truck scene since the beginning, back in 2010. There’s been a ton of food trucks who have come and gone, but only those food trucks who has what it takes are still around. Soho Taco is one who is still around. I […]

Portland: Frying Scotsman food cart

After we picked up my chicken and rice at Nong’s Khao Man Gai, we heading down the street and to the left to find the Frying Scotsman, a fish and chips cart. The cart is owned by a Scotsman, and while friendly, he wasn’t very chatty.  He helped […]

Yelp Event: Lunch at DönerG

My first Elite Lunch event!! I’ve always wanted to check out a Yelp Elite Lunch event but they were too far or my schedule never allowed it.  I’ve been to the other Doner G location in Anaheim (off Ball and State College), and love the food and the […]

Orange: Pepito’s  Taco Tuesday

I was craving gringos style tacos for Taco Tuesday. Pepito’s, located down the street from the Outlets of Orange, where the City Drive meets Memory Lane, fits the bill. They have street tacos with meats from Carne Asada, Carnitas, shredded beef and shredded or grilled chicken, and they […]

4th Street Market, revisited

The 4th Street Market is located a few blocks from downtown Santa Ana.  For the government employees like me, we get only an hour lunch break.  This location is perfect if you need to meet up with other government employees, who don’t necessarily work at the same agency […]

UCLA: The Boiling Crab

These so called “Crab” places have been popping up everywhere, but the Boiling Crab is one of the originals, and sort of like the Starbucks of the “seafood in the bag” restaurants. The original Boiling Crab is in Orange County near Little Saigon off Euclid, where the wait […]

Lawry’s, Beverly Hills revisited

I love Lawry’s. Their food is excellent, and its a place to celebrate a special occasion or a a fancy night out. Having said that, the Beverly Hills location is probably my least favorite of the Lawry’s locations. The last time I was at Lawry’s Beverly Hills was […]

Fathers Day at Naples Rib Co.

Naples Rib Co is probably my favorite barbecue joint in Southern California. Aside from the hit and miss service, there’s very little I can find fault with.  To start off, check in on yelp and get a free 1/4 onion brick with barbecue sauce.  They don’t offer 1/4 […]

Cheap eats at IKEA  

Who goes to IKEA just for their food (besides me)? Enter through the glass doors, go up the stairs (or take the elevator) and use the shortcut to the left to get to the Restaurant. For the price of what you pay at a fast food joint, you […]

Walnut, CA: Chop Chop Grill

Chop Chop is a hidden cafe located in Walnut, California. It is tucked away in the corner of a strip mall, across the street from Mt San Antonio college. Find “Vapor Monkeez” and the place is next door. This family run restaurant restaurant serves up Singaporean and Japanese […]

Westminster: The Fire Crab 

My girlfriends and I came here on a Monday for their happy hour: Buy 2 pounds of seafood and get the 3rd pound free. I was really looking forward to this place based on the Yelp reviews, but left a bit underwhelmed. The restaurant is located off Garden […]

This story starts off with the birth of a little food truck called Dos Chinos. The owner Hop Phan’s reputation got him featured in national magazines, and then on various Food Network shows, including Man vs Child, where he was challenged by three children chef protégés who were […]
