Whether you’ve already been to Paris or just want to imagine yourself eating French comfort foods at a cozy cafe in the land of romance, Meet in Paris in downtown Culver City can take your tastebuds on an adventure without a plane ticket. They invited us to come down and see if they could change our mind about mussels…
It has been my experience that in Los Angeles, soft serve is treated like the red-headed stepchild of the ice cream family. Seriously, think about the last time you’ve seen a place selling soft serve.
Well, as a born and raised Midwesterner, I find this unacceptable, and even more so, there’s no soft serve in the city that ‘dips’ their cones. For those unfamiliar with this concept, it’s soft serve that is dipped into a bucket of hot chocolate sauce (or butterscotch, caramel….any flavored sauce) that then freezes onto the ice cream forming a hard crust. It took me a while, but I finally found Covina Tasty Freeze that offers chocolate, butterscotch and cherry dipped cones. Below is the butterscotch.
Nothing warms my heart more than seafood—especially a good moist crab cake. This sucker is seasoned to perfection and laid upon a slather of creamy remoulade with some yummy citrus and micro greens for presentation. How fabulous does that look? Well, it tastes just as fab.
What are you doing right now? DROP EVERYTHING! And think about this:

SRIRACHA…BACON…. CHEDDAR… FRIED! BOOM!
People at Chakra are proud of their restaurant, and rightfully so. Halal-prepared dishes are beautifully presented using super-fresh ingredients. Combine that with a great ambiance, and this place is a winner. I was treated to a veritable feast of deliciousness to enjoy.

We had the pleasure of making it down to Redondo Beach for brunch to test out the new make your own Bloody Mary Bar at BALEENkitchen. I mean honestly, what else needs to be said? If you are a fan of Bloody Marys, this alone is reason to come and boozy brunch it up. The bar was kind of insane. They had different kinds of infused vodka, and tons of spices, sauces, and garnishes. AND they had like 20 different kinds of hot sauces! It’s you playing Bloody Mary bartender, so you can go Plain Jane with your recipe or get creative and make a spicy fireball. I’ll just say as a word of caution, don’t add Tabasco AND cayenne pepper to yours. As for garnishments, I highly recommend putting in a stalk of celery and a strip of bacon. Yes, they have STRIPS OF BACON as garnishment!
