Dried squid and cheese!!! If you ever find yourself in Narita, Japan and taking the NEX, this is the snack to buy. You will buy.
This is Fujisan Bread that I pick up at the 99 Ranch Market. If you like Hawaiian bread, and who doesn’t, then you will absolutely love this bread. It’s the closest bread I can compare Fujisan bread to. It is so delicious and goes well all by itself or a cup of java or hot […]
The deli. Our order. My Deli Hot Dog. I’ve been a local to Redlands, CA for a few years now and this is the first time I’ve stepped into this deli. It seemed like a very hip place to hang out. I ordered to go, but I could definitely see myself coming back just to […]
The HOGG Burger. Background: HOGGS is a local burger joint here in Moreno Valley, CA. It’s a nice place to hang out with your buddies and have a few brews. They also have a couple of TV’s that usually has the sports games showing. It has that “backyard” feel too. Probably because the wall paper […]
Another of my comfort foods. I give you the tuna melt (on a bagel) at Yum Yum Donuts. I’m not sure if Yum Yum donuts (aka Winchell’s) is a national chain, but it is very similar to Dunkin’ Donuts. Yum Yum is our West Coast version. Old school donut shops, bringing back memories 🙂 Anyways, […]
My comfort food…carne asada fries! Got to dip every bite in the guacamole salsa.

There are many Alberto’s and not all taste the same, but this one on […]

(Taken in Kyoto, Japan // March 2014 // Fuji x100s) Just because…..
Best coffee cake you will ever have. Period! You can find this mouth drooling, taste bud pleasing, “I’ll take another slice” coffee cake at Carolyn’s Cafe In Redlands, CA. A little about the restaurant, it is like a small diner and will be packed during brunch, but worth the wait, and not just for their […]
Table for two at Bruxie in Chino Hills, CA. My tuna melt sandwich… …Scrumptious! I’ve had this sandwich several times with consistency of quality and taste. Other tuna melts I’ve had usually have been drenched in the mayonnaise and always greasy. This is not that. The tuna has a good ratio to mayonnaise to where […]
