Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

Without a doubt, Freddy’s is my new favorite fast food restaurant! My first time out I tried their Original Double Patty Melt! Two outstanding steak burger patties, Swiss cheese & grilled onions on toasted rye bread. I think the biggest standout for me are their remarkably thin patties. It makes for the perfect charred surface area to meat ratio.


Rock & Brews

The chicken wings are on point at Rock & Brews in El Segundo, CA!

Lunch at 43,000 feet

More in-flight dining. This time a remarkably good (and huge) Chicken Caesar salad. Also an exquisite crab & corn chowder. Simply outstanding.

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse

Outstanding lobster mac & cheese at Ruth’s Chris in Tysons Corner, VA!

Air Gourmet

The best airplane lunch ever! Such an impressively stacked turkey sandwich with all the fixin’s.

Phuket Thai Restaurant

Tasty Pad Thai at Phuket (pronounced poo-ket) Thai in Redondo Beach! Even if they did leave out the crushed peanuts.

Italian Cucina

Outstanding chicken parmigiana at Barona Casino’s Italian Cucina!

Beach Mex

One of my favorite places to get a wet burrito in El Segundo is (was) Beach Mex! Here’s their outstanding carnitas burrito smothered with a flavorful verde sauce. Sadly this place is reportedly closed.

Il Romanista

Outstanding pizza at Il Romanista in El Segundo! This place is legit Roman style pizza al taglio, or “pizza by the cut”. Pizzas are cooked on large rectangular baking sheets and sold by the slice. Il Romanista claims to be Los Angeles’ first Roman-style pizzeria and I couldn’t be happier that I’m in their neighborhood frequently.

Thai Dishes

Outstanding yellow curry fried rice at Thai Dishes in El Segundo! Delicious food, but if this place didn’t have such a depressing vibe I might visit more.
