The Oaks Grille

Tasty country fried steak for brunch recently at The Oaks Grille. The steak is clearly off the Sysco truck but that gravy though is remarkably good!

1440 Bistro and Bar

Outstanding fish & chips at the Embassy Suites in El Segundo! Hot, crispy and love those waffle fries. One of my favorite things to order at 1440 Bistro and Bar.

La Sirena Grill

One of my new favorite Mexican restaurants in SoCal is La Sirena Grill! They make some of the best looking and fresh tasting food you can find. This wet burrito was just stunning!

North Italia

My new favorite Italian restaurant in SoCal is North Italia! This place really specializes in a hand crafted experience in all they do. The kitchen is open and everything, including their pasta, is handmade from scratch daily. Here’s their house specialty, Bolognese. Traditional meat sauce with tagliatelle and grana padano cheese. Simply outstanding!

El Segundo Fish Co

Outstanding fish & chips at El Segundo Fish Company!

The Par Lounge

Super excited to check out the new menu at The Oaks Grille/Par Lounge! First section I focused on was their assortment of premium a la carte sides. It featured my favorite vegetable, macaroni & cheese, so I had to try it. Made with cavatappi pasta, a legit béchamel incorporating gruyere and provolone cheeses, topped with crispy breadcrumbs. Only $5. Honestly, I was impressed with the portion size. I could have made this a meal in itself, along with a couple of draft IPAs. The best version of top shelf mac & cheese I’ve had in Ramona to date. That, I can tell you. I consider myself a m&c connoisseur and what I had tonight was outstanding!

Pei Wei Asian Diner

Excellent chicken chow mein at Pei Wei!

Carin de Ria

Outstanding beef stew over garlic fried rice at Carin de Ria in Escondido! Their lumpia on the other hand was terrible.

1440 Bistro and Bar

Probably one of the best hotel restaurants I’ve eaten at across the nation! 1440 Bistro inside Embassy Suites LAX South in El Segundo is a remarkable standout. Menu is fairly short but what they make is just excellent. Quality and attention to detail like few places I’ve experienced. Here’s an outstanding Smoked Turkey Club. Made with bacon, gruyere cheese, avocado, mayo, little gem lettuce, and mater on ciabatta.

Dunkin Donuts

Probably the best tasting thing I’ve ordered at Dunkin Donuts. Plain bagel, toasted with cream cheese.
