Panda Express

I tried that new “Wok Seared Steak & Shrimp” at Panda Express. The potatoes in the dish were wholly unnecessary! Didn’t even seem like Chinese food, but it was tasty nonetheless.

San Sai Japanese Grill

I went out on a limb and tried this hole in the wall lunch spot on Sepulveda in El Segundo. Spicy Chicken Bowl was surprisingly tasty at San Sai Japanese Girl. Easy to eat in the car.


Excellent Pretzel Bacon Pub Double at Wendy’s in Ramona!

Flippin’ Pizza

Excellent two slice and soft drink lunch special at Flippin’ Pizza in 4S Ranch!

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Outstanding burrito bowl thing (with no beans of course) at Chipotle. My favorite protein option is definitely their delicious barbacoa.

Panda Express

One of my favorite things to order at Panda is this one item bowl thing. Simply outfitted with chow mein and orange chicken.


Wendy’s is now serving breakfast and I tried it recently. Outstanding chicken biscuit with some sort of honey-butter sauce. The hot biscuit wasn’t quite up to Mack Donald’s standards but it was tasty nonetheless. Those tater wedge things were very good too.


Tasty “California Bowl” with mahi-mahi at Rubio’s in Ramona, CA! It’s nice to be eating something here with just a fork that I don’t have to pick up.


Outstanding hot biscuit & chicken at CFA in Del Sur, CA!

Skyline Chili

Back in January I had the distinct honor of spending two weeks in southwest Ohio, courtesy of my employer. I of course took advantage of the opportunity to seek out some good Ohio foodstuffs. I quickly realized that Ohio cuisine consists primarily of three food groups. Chili, pizza and bar food.

As soon as I got off the plane in Dayton and before checking in to my hotel I headed straight for Skyline Chili. This place epitomizes the Ohio culinary scene. Founded in 1949, Skyline Chili is a chain of chili restaurants dotted throughout the region. The restaurant is kind of a trip. Unlike any place I’ve experienced in SoCal.

The popular thing to order is known as “Cincinnati Chili”. A bed of steaming spaghetti blanketed with their original secret-recipe (no bean) chili, then a heaping mound of shredded cheddar cheese. This is known as 3-Way. I had mine 4-Way which includes your choice of diced onions or beans. 5-Way is all of the above. The dish is visually stunning and tastes just as good as it looks. All that cheese though had me stopped up for a week.
