Anaheim: La Pollada Peruvian Grill 

I was craving Peruvian food, and my usual “go to” place El Pollo Inka is all the way in the South Bay. Thanks to yelp, I discovered this mom n pop place that’s located down the street from Disneyland, just off Ball and Euclid, in a busy strip mall […]

Fullerton: George’s Hamburgers

While having dinner with my BFF, her husband asked me: “Have you ever been to George’s?”. Where? I asked. It’s off Commonwealth and Euclid, across from the U-Haul place. I’ve driven by this place dozens of times, and never gave it much thought. So I yelped it, and saw that […]

Fountain Valley: Simply Home Café

My quest continues for the best Hainan chicken in LA and Orange County. So far, Savoy Kitchen in Alhambra is still the king of Hainan chicken, but who wants to drive to LA? Located off Brookhurst and Edinger, down the street from the heart of little Saigon is this […]

Costa Mesa: Mastro’s Steakhouse 

Last year I took Stephen to Mastro’s Ocean Club in Corona Del Mar for his birthday.  We really enjoyed the meal, so for my birthday this year, I chose the Mastro’s in Costa Mesa.   We arrived at 7:00 pm on a Saturday night. It’s located just down […]

Costa Mesa: Seasons 52 for #OCRW

It’s OC Restaurant Week (OCRW) 2017 and each year Linda, Anna and I get together for at least one OCRW restaurant. It’s our way to catch up and to make time for lunch. This year we chose Seasons 52 located at the South Coast Plaza, and it was […]

Orange: Anepalco

Anepalco is a modern Mexican restaurant located inside the ALO hotel in Orange.  It’s been about 2 years since I’ve eaten here, and I stopped by for lunch with my friend Eleni.  Their menu is quite extensive, but they have this one signature dish that blows away every […]

Gardena: El Pollo Inka 

El Pollo Inka is a mini chain of Peruvian restaurants, located throughout Los Angeles County.  I stopped by at the Gardena location with my friends Roger and Karen on Fat Tuesday, and the place was busy. Peruvian food takes from their Incan roots and incorporates food from the […]
