Probably one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever put in my mouth. Well after the ones I make at home because nothing is better than it being free.

I love me a shrimp po boy and a good mac salad. This place can’t be togo’d, you have to eat it there and have to take the habanero hot sauce from TJ that I love. They have some Louisiana hot sauce at the store you can use but it’s not the same. Also, don’t forget to ask for the yellow chili peppers.

@VibratoJazz @SethMacFarlane #BelAir


I put my name on the wait list last time I visited the bar to watch Katharine McPhee for Seth MacFarlane. Lucky me, I got the call on Thursday for an opening. 🙂 He made an appearance during her performance and I really wanted to watch him live. I had watched him on the Sinatra’s 100th Tribute show on television and was amazed by his voice.

Unfortunately, my husband was not able to join. Since he has class every Mondays and Wednesdays, I ended up taking my friend CS. We enjoyed two bottles of this amazing sauvignon blanc, lobster mac & cheese, beet salad and shrimp cocktail. We enjoyed the music, his signing and the band for a hour and was sad when it ended. I can’t wait to go back. These moments are priceless and I don’t have enough of them in my life!

@TLTFood #ceviche #westwood


I was craving the vegan ceviche from TLT Food in Westwood the other day. I had to go to one of our properties, so I decided to stop by, BUT ONLY if I was able to find street parking easily. It’s near UCLA, so it can get really annoying around there!

Lucky me, I was able to find one right in front! I walked in, ordered the ceviche and was out within 5 minutes. If you go, don’t forget to ask for the hot sauce, it’s really spicy!

Their ceviche is vegan and gluten free. Made with cauliflower and other veggies, it’s refreshing, flavorful and hits all the right textures.


@Mainland_Poke 


I never understood the hype about poke. I decided to join my colleagues for a lunch outing after they told me they were going to Mainland Poke. An old acquaintance (may have hooked up once a long long time ago) that I ran into at a restaurant during my company’s holiday lunch, told me he owned the place and that I should stop by. I never thought to until it was presented to me, and also I didn’t have to drive. Trying to find parking on 3rd street is just a nightmare as running into an old fling! Assuming he wouldn’t be there, I was excited to try and review the shit out of it.

See the thing is, I like to give honest reviews about establishments. I don’t just give a fluff of an opinion because A. I know a person who is affiliated B. I want to be nice about a new place C. I want to be a food blogger who only has nice things to say like the rest of them so I can get free meals. No, none of that applies to me.

Now my gripe isn’t about Mainland, it’s about the whole poke phenomenon. The dish pictured was about $20 something dollars. To me, that’s not worth $20.

Let me give you a little advice. Go to your local Asian market, preferably Korean. Go buy a thing of tuna (you may have seem my previous posts about DIY spicy tuna at home). Buy all the accompaniments and make your own goddamn poke bowl!

First of all, poke businesses should provide bowls that fit the damn ingredients. I had most of my roe fall on the table trying to mix this bitch. Second, don’t freakin’ rip me off. I always leave these places unsatisfied and poorer than before. Just kidding, my husband pays for my food (well, not this meal), and he’s usually the one that always wants poke… I should really be a good wife and make him my bowls again so I don’t have to watch him spend money on things I don’t want him to… AND he could be saving that $20 and spending it on me, and I’m not talking about food.

#RedEyeFish #Sushi


We were in Cerritos and didn’t want to drive all the way to Koreatown so I yelped and found this place. I was sold from the Hot Cheetos Sushi roll they served. I’m always looking for IG opportunities to take really out of the box type of dishes so this worked out well.

We ordered a bunch of stuff and left satisfied. The funny thing is, my son loves hot cheetos, and he did not want to try one!

I had not been back since they first opened for my cousin’s birthday dinner. I remember the meal being very tasty but I had no reason to go back.

Random dinner with a friend and I enjoyed every dish. Especially the miso seabass and the sashimi.

We arrived 15 minutes before the kitchen was closing and the server informed us that the kitchen was already back up so the food may take a bit longer to come out.

We ended up picking items that didn’t require much cooking time. Oysters, ceviche, seaweed salad, sashimi amongst other things. The miso seabass was the only warm dish we ordered.

I think I want to go back with Bear since he loves Japanese.
