Santa Ana: Shabu Shabu bar

There’s a new Shabu place on 17 th Street in Santa Ana called Shabu Shabu Bar, located across the street from the Albertson’s.   The lunch prices were pretty reasonable, starting at $9.99 and everything was well presented.  I wasn’t too fond of the sesame sauce, or the […]

Orange: Bruxie

Martin was in the mood for waffles so we called up our friend, Linda to meet us at Bruxies in Orange. I ordered the classic Chicken and waffle, while  Martin and Linda ordered the special of the day, Prosciutto hash and egg, and we also shared the Creme […]

Korean tofu & dessert

It’s definitely winter in southern California as all I want is something warm and liquidy. Lucky for me, I live in a community with a lot of asians, more specifically Koreans.  I asked Martin if he wanted Korean tofu soup, and he agreed. We randomly picked one off […]

Las Vegas: the Egg and I

There’s more to Las Vegas than the Strip. If you’re willing to venture 10 minutes outside the Strip, there’s a great breakfast place called the Egg and I. They also own Egg Works, which has the egg-xact same menu.  The portions here are more than generous, and on […]

Ducks are tied for first

I know it is still very early in the NHL season, but as of December 2, the Ducks are in a 3-way tie for first in the Pacific, and the Kings have fallen below us.  The last 10 games, the Ducks are 4-4-2, and the Kings are 3-7-0, with […]

Ducks blank the Kings, 2-0

It does not matter where the teams are in the NHL standing. When the Ducks and the Kings play, its all about bragging rights.  The Ducks played host to the Kings on Monday, and blanked them 2-0.  Not only did the Ducks win, the 2 points leaped frogged them […]

New Anaheim Ducks 3rd Jersey

The day after Thanksgiving the Ducks unveiled their new Third jersey. I pre ordered one as a birthday gift for Martin, and here he is… Still with the tags on! The jersey shoulder has patches with the old Mighty Ducks logo, and, since I pre ordered, there is […]

Just Hot Dogs

While driving around Beach Blvd, we came across a Chicago style hot dog stand called JUST HOT DOGS. Martin wanted to try it, and I wanted to compare it to a Jersey style dog like the Greasy Weiner. I had the chili cheese and Martin had the signature […]

The Suite life for one night

Martin won tickets to a suite at the Ducks game. Ironically, that game is the one where our photo is on the season ticket. So for one night we get to see what the Corporates experience 😉 Even the food is better! Martin got a carved beef sandwich, […]

Los Alamitos: Papas tapas

After a long day at Gourmet on the Go, I wanted to have something different than what was offered at lunch. Fortunately for me, Papas Tapas was a new truck that I have never tried before. The menu was vast, but I decided on the garlic shrimp and […]

Anaheim: Shortstop BBQ

Even though there was a big truck gathering in Irvine, Martin and I wanted to support the new kid, Shortstop BBQ. We arrived a little after 6: 00 pm and chatted with Andrew before ordering. They were quite busy at lunch and even ran out of the portabello […]
