Gardena, CA: Home Kitchen

I wanted to take my friend, Roger, out for his birthday, and he wanted to come to Home Kitchen, a mom n pop, hole in the wall, tiny little restaurant in Gardena. There’s plenty of different things on the menu, and they even have a Bento box of […]

San Diego, CA: Menya Ultra ramen

Menya Ultra ramen is an award winning ramen place in Japan.  In February 2017, they opened up a store in the outskirts of San Diego and was an instant hit.  I have been following them on Instagram since their opening, and finally decided to drive down to try this […]

Lake Forest, CA: Delicias Peruanas

I was in South County and hankering for some Tallarin Saltado… not the green pesto version, just the “normal” one with chicken or beef. This place popped up on Yelp with decent reviews. It wasn’t easy to find because it’s tucked in a non descript strip mall, behind a Walgreens. The […]

Anaheim, CA: MFK by Aysee (@MFK_Aysee) #MFK

Las Vegas: Viet Noodle Bar

Las Vegas has plenty of food to offer. You can find almost anything you want, on and off the Strip.  We try to get away from the Strip and eat where the locals eat.  About 10 minutes from the Strip, off Spring Mountain Road is their Asia town.  […]

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 […]
