San Francisco Pride was on all our bucket lists. Pavement steaming, terrible tank top tan lines, sometimes wooping/laughing and then crying from being so moved from signs of support from parents and people from all walks of life. We loved every second of it. Of course, we had to eat in between all the great sights … Continue reading Dragoneats – San Francisco
After a long stretch of highway and open roads for miles, the inevitable happened. G: Don’t know about anyone else but I’m getting REAL hungry
Things to do before you die: drive the Oregon/California coastline. It’s breathtaking, trust us. We woke up early to start the day’s drive—and let’s just say the complimentary breakfast at our motel wasn’t cutting it. We drove through cloudy San Simeon and noticed that The Ragged Point Inn has a restaurant. Hans: Breakfast anyone? Everyone: YES. And … Continue reading Ragged Point Cafe – San Simeon
Sometimes, you come across some mythical names that you feel compelled to file away for… someday. Names of faraway cities to visit, rockstars to stalk… but for us, these seemed to often be the names of restaurants. Pok Pok was one such restaurant. There were five of us, so we could taste a pretty wide range … Continue reading Pok Pok – Portland
One of our favourite meals is brunch. Well technically every meal is our favourite meal but YA KNOW WHAT WE MEAN. Being a “new American diner” that specializes in brunch, Tasty n Sons got us pretty excited… if you know what we mean.
On a bright and sunny day in LA… where better to eat breakfast than at a diner with outdoor seating? That would be the Griddle Cafe, which is a “landmark Hollywood restaurant” on Sunset Boulevard. Judging by how busy it was, yeah. We’d say it’s pretty landmark. But first, coffee.
If there’s one thing that we could not get enough of on this road trip (other than drinking), it was poké. That fresh, light meal that leaves you feeling satisfied—without the food coma hangover—was something that we craved almost every day in the hot Cali weather. So of course we had to try another poké … Continue reading The Poké Shack – Los Angeles
One of the most famous areas for good Korean food in Los Angeles is… Koreatown. Duh. But seriously, if you’re hankering for good Korean BBQ, this is your spot. We’d been driving around all day and were pretty exhausted and not even hungry by this point (roughly 9pm). Nothing came up on Zomato or Yelp … Continue reading To Dam Gol – Los Angeles
You can’t visit Los Angeles without visiting Venice Beach. Okay we might be a little biased because it’s one of Grace’s favourite places in LA, but still. It’s one of the liveliest and most unique stretches of sand and ocean in North America, in our humble opinion. Anyway, you should go. And then you should eat … Continue reading Wild Poke – Los Angeles
For our first breakfast in LA, we knew it had to be special. So we went to Silver Lake—a pretty cool ‘hood—highly recommend it if you’re into hipster things and good food. The result… well, we got our minds blown, so if you’re ever in Los Angeles, you definitely have to eat at Sqirl.
