The Mill House

I learned about the Mill House after falling into a deep internet search while looking up restaurants in Maui, and I feel like this place should be getting a lot more attention. As like most restaurants in Hawaii, the meal was delicious. Their chickpea cakes were melt-in-your-mouth good and I must’ve liked whatever drink I … More The Mill House

Guerilla Tacos

I don’t venture to downtown Los Angeles too often, but when I happen to be in the neighborhood, I always try to make a stop at Guerilla Tacos. Growing up in Chicago, the thought of being vegetarian or vegan when eating out was definitely tricky, and although I don’t enjoy eating meat, plenty of restaurants … More Guerilla Tacos

Ojai, California

Oh Ojai, a little charming town, usually overshadowed by its neighbor Santa Barbara. Tucked into a valley at the base of the mountains, an hour and half north of Los Angeles, and 45 minutes east of Santa Barbara, Ojai feels like a whole different world from these major cities. Ojai Valley Inn is the main … More Ojai, California

Gott’s Roadside

It is time, once again, to discuss burgers. Growing up in the Midwest, our options were either the very flat McDonald’s style burger, the thick pub style burger that you get in a sit down restaurant which requires a fork and knife to eat (plus it costs upwards of $20), or a freshly grilled backyard … More Gott’s Roadside

Eveleigh

A farm to table restaurant on the Sunset Strip, an interesting combination! The Sunset Strip is more known for classic Hollywood clubs and dive bars also acting as late night music venues, but tucked away along this iconic street is the cozy and tasty restaurant Eveleigh. I am a huge fan of any place that … More Eveleigh

Atwater Village

Atwater Village may be small, but it is mighty. Wedged in between Glendale and Los Feliz in LA, I passed Atwater Village a few times before finally taking the time to stop and explore the little town with colorful storefronts. Atwater Village’s main street is along Glendale Blvd, at the cross streets of Seneca Ave … More Atwater Village

Father’s Office

I would say burgers are one of my top indulgent foods (besides anything with sugar of course). Anytime I have a strong craving it is usually for a delicious burger. So, when Father’s Office, a little hole in the wall in Santa Monica, was listed on travel websites as having some of the best burgers … More Father’s Office

Taste on Melrose

Taste on Melrose is a local favorite, which means tourists who happen to be shopping along Melrose Ave and spot the Taste sign during brunch rush hour are usually turned away from the busy watering hole without a reservation. The first time I tried Taste, it was a somewhat last minute decision on my part, … More Taste on Melrose
