Discovering Favorites at Stonefire Grill

Discovering Favorites at Stonefire Grill

It's been awhile since I've posted, but I'm glad to hop back on to share with you some favorites from Stonefire Grill. I was invited to a media tasting a few weeks ago and shared a meal among friends, local bloggers and influencers. It was fun to rediscover some popular items, especially considering it's been a few years since I've eaten here.

Angelina's Pizzeria at Los Olivos Marketplace

Angelina's Pizzeria at Los Olivos Marketplace

I've definitely had my eye on this spot for awhile, so when my brother was craving pizza, I knew just the spot to try. We arrived to a packed house on a Friday evening, but decided to wait it out at the bar for an open table. Once seated, we thought we knew what we wanted until we heard the daily special of the day. Read more to see what we got!

Cravings Satisfied at Kamon Sushi

Cravings Satisfied at Kamon Sushi

sushi is one of my favorite meals and when cravings hit, I had to have it. Although I was unfamiliar with the area, Yelp helped me find my way to Kamon Sushi. I was hungry, so I ordered A LOT of food thinking the sushi would be the standard cut. I was willing to pay anything, so I just ordered up.

Family Tapas at Willi's Seafood

Family Tapas at Willi's Seafood

I visited Santa Rosa a few weeks ago and felt compelled to share one of the most memorable dinners. It was the last dinner in Healdsburg and the menu is meant to be enjoyed family style. I love these types of dining experiences since you can try a little bit of everything and we literally did just that.

Cafe Gratitude: I Am...

Cafe Gratitude: I Am...

What I love about Cafe Gratitude is the way their menu is set up. Each dish is labeled with empowering verbs so when you order, they make the experience a little more fun. You can order as you normally would or you can add "I am" before naming your dishes of choice. The server then affirms and echoes your selections.

Revolving Sushi Bar at Zensen Sushi Express

Revolving Sushi Bar at Zensen Sushi Express

After a weekend spent in San Diego, the drive home left us famished. We arrived to Diamond Bar Plaza for an early dinner and was surprised by how quiet the plaza was. We tried our luck at Zensen Sushi Express and found ourselves seated upon entrance. The revolving sushi bar usually packs a wait, so we were glad to experience the revolving sushi bar as it ramps up for dinner rush. 

Brunch at Plum's Cafe

Brunch at Plum's Cafe

Plum's Cafe is a definite local grub spot and I'm a bit surprised I have yet to share this with you guys. I usually come through for brunch on weekends and have come across savory to sweets. It's been all good from their salmon hash to their famed Dutch Baby. You just gotta try them!

Popcorn Chicken: Taiwanese Night Market Fare

Popcorn Chicken: Taiwanese Night Market Fare

I know it's been a few weeks (ok, maybe few months) without an update, but I was out of the country on vacation. It was right around Christmas when I left, but Popcorn Chicken was the last meal I ate in the US before the new year. Here's what I had before I left for my 2.5 week excursion to Vietnam. I'll have a recap soon!

Wako Donkasu - Koreatown, Los Angeles, California

Wako Donkasu - Koreatown, Los Angeles, California

Located on the corner of Wilshire and Alexandria, this corner can get packed! Luckily, there's a valet lot right across the street that will only cost you $5, which put my mind at ease while I dined here. The pictures on the menu are deceiving, but in a good way because you get A LOT of food. Trust me, you'll need to bring your appetite!
