Las Vegas: Gritz Café (@gritzcafe)

I’ve had this place bookmarked for the longest time.  They serve fried chicken, waffles and grits… sinful, comfort food.  The reviews on yelp said the place is tiny, a bit slow (as they cook to order) and terribly busy on weekends. For my visit, I came on a […]

Artesia: Gerry’s Grill

I was shopping at MadPoppin and spied Gerry’s Grill across the parking lot. The logo is a swordfish holding 2 beers. Is it a bar and grill? a burger place? a fish place? Uhhh actually its a Filipino restaurant. The only other Filipino place I’ve been to is […]

Whittier: Original Pancake House 

Back from vacation, and it’s good to be back home.  For the most part, the UK has plenty of American comfort food, but there’s just some things I missed and American breakfast food is one of them. Being a bit jet-lagged, I was up early enough to beat […]

London: Nando’s peri-peri chicken (@NandosUK)

Nando’s is a worldwide Portuguese flamed grilled chicken restaurant chain founded in South Africa. Their chicken is seasoned and marinaded in a peri-peri sauce. It’s Portuguese in origin and made from crushed chilies, citrus peel, onion, pepper, salt, lemon juice, bay leaves, paprika, pimiento, basil, oregano, and tarragon. […]

London: Toi and Moi cafe

Today is our day to visit the British Museum.  I yelped a place for breakfast, which was appropriately called “The Breakfast Club” but found out it was an extremely popular place.  There was a line out the door, and was estimated to be at least a half hour […]

Edinburgh: Breakfast at Coffee Mill

Good morning, Edinburgh!!  It’s day 4 of our trip and we are on our own to explore Edinburgh.  We had tickets for the Castle at 9:30 and decided to yelp a place nearby for breakfast.  The Coffee Mill came up with decent reviews, and they had the Scottish Breakfast, too! […]

Orange, CA: El Torito

It’s Tuesday, so it’s Taco Tuesday and Happy Hour at El Torito at the Outlets of Orange, which is available only in the cantina from 3:00-9:00. The taco Tuesday was a decent deal. For $2.99 per taco, you order with the cantina waitress and she gives you a […]

Baker, CA: Los Dos Toritos

We normally get something to eat in Vegas before heading back to SoCal, but decided to grab a bite in Baker instead. We looked up places to eat, and Baker has all sorts of fast food from McD’s to KFC, and then they have the “famous” Mad Greek […]
