RSM: SAJJ Mediterranean

On Tuesday night I was invited back to SAJJ Mediterranean in Rancho Santa Margarita to cover the media event for their new chocolate hummus. Unfortunately I was not able to attend, so my partner-in-crime, Chrissy went for me.  Here’s her recap: Originally a food truck, SAJJ Mediterranean currently operates two […]

La Mirada, CA: Oh Mama Kitchen

After a wonderful meal at Chicken University, I decided to track down other ‘KFC’ places in my Korean dominated community. I stumbled upon Oh Mama Kitchen on Yelp. This little (no, really it’s tiny) restaurant is located off Rosecrans and Beach, behind the Polly Pies. It’s nestled between […]

The chicken is usually seasoned with spices, sugar, and salt, prior to and after […]

The NHL playoff begins tonight, and the game I am looking forward to is watching the Vegas Golden Knights will play their first post season against Los Angeles Kings.  Las Vegas has been an amazing team this season (and, it’s their first year in the NHL). Here’s the […]

Fullerton: Huntington Ramen

This little Japanese restaurant is hidden in a strip mall, off Chapman and Victoria, across the street from a post office. We came on a Wednesday and was able to find parking, but I can see that parking can be an issue on weekends or on cooler days when […]
