Always great food but on the pricey side. Need to try thr grilled cheese next time. The specialty salads are good too.

If you haven’t had poutine you should try it – awesome combo of:

  1. fries
  2. cheese curds
  3. gravy

All the food here is pretty decent and classic French/Canadian. They also have a good selection of French/Canadian beers.

Croque Madam at Restaurant Soleil

Croque Madam

Favorite dish here. Egg is perfect and cheese and ham are flavorful.

Poutine Malik at Restaurant Soleil

Poutine Malik

I love the merguez lamb sausage.


Ralph's Submarine Sandwich

 1891 N Tustin St
Orange, CA

Just can't get enough

I don’t know what it is, but I always look forward to a Ralph’s sub sandwich. I think it’s the combination of the soft white bread, the diced tomato/pickle mix and the generous amounts of avocado and cheese.

Veggie B (Mushroom, Avocado, Cheese)

This is a simple sandwich, but I order it more often than the meat ones. Mushroom, avocado and cheese just work.

It’s your standard neighborhood thai place. The people are real friendly and the food is above average. We get takeout from here almost every week it seems.

10. Golden Pancake

Not what I was expecting. I thought it would be more pancake texture but it was crunchy and fried. Pretty small portion for the price too.

73. Pad See You With Tofu

The pad see eww sometime varies in flavor strength, but it’s always pretty good. When I’m not doing meat I’ll go for the fried or steamed tofu. Both are nice options.

18. Wonton Soup

The won ton soup is a pretty good size with a number of tasty wontons. The chicken in the soup is kinda whatever and dry but thr soup itself is flavorful.

"The Counter" of Mexican food

Freebirds is awesome. If you’ve been to The Counter then you’re no stranger to having a ton of options and free reign to build your meal the way you want. That’s basically what freebirds is for burritos. There’s meat options, toppings, sauces, etc. And they don’t nickel and dime you like The Counter. It’s awesome and the burritos are big (well they have sizes, but in general they’re big). Good stuff. I can’t wait to go back.


Bongo Room

 1152 S. Wabash Ave.
Chicago, IL

Still can't go wrong

Bongo Room is still one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. I wish it was open all day and a nationwide chain.

Maple & Mustard Roasted Pork Loin Sandwich at Bongo Room

Maple & Mustard Roasted Pork Loin Sandwich

Pork was tender but could use some more flavoring. The relish was very fruit and refreshing. The potato salad was awesome — tons of dill. Yum.

Iced Coffee at Bongo Room

Iced Coffee

Pretty standard iced coffee.


Sandbag's Gourmet Sandwiches

 1134 Westwood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA

Free drinks on Thursday

I’ve discovered a couple other good sandwiches since my last few visits. I think I’ll be stopping by more often.

Incredible Sandbag's

The club is missing avocado, but the incredible sandbag’s is not.

The Afternooner at Sandbag's Gourmet Sandwiches

The Afternooner

This sandwich hits the spot. Melted cheese ham and turkey on a sub roll. Some olives for some kick. Gonna order this one again.


Coral Tree Cafe

 11645 San Vicente Blvd
Los Angeles, CA

Reopened after the fire

Came back here after they were closed for awhile due to a fire. Still just as good as before.

It look like they have a happy hour too. Check out the events page for more info.

Vegetable Frittata at Coral Tree Cafe

Vegetable Frittata

Actually pretty tasty. Didn’t even miss the meat. The soy cheese had a weird texture but I think that’s to be expected.


Mark's Place

 1610 Haleukana St
Lihue, HI

Good and greasy hawaiian food

After you land or before you leave, this is where you should eat. Mark’s serves Hawaiian plate lunches plain and simple. You get your food at the counter then sit at a table outside.

The food is good and filling albeit a bit greasy, but you don’t really eat Hawaiian food when you’re on a diet anyways.

One of the highlights is the mac salad. They add potato and some lettuce so there’s a bit of variety in the texture and the lettuce makes it feel lighter than it is.

Spam Musubi at Mark's Place

Spam Musubi

Little too much rice for my taste.

a little of everything - Special at Mark's Place


A little of everything. The beef stew was super tender.



 10911 Lindbrook Dr
Los Angeles, CA

Smaller than others, but still good

This is probably the smallest yogurtland I’ve ever been to, but it’s so convenient (5 min walk) so we come here all the time. Surprisingly it doesn’t get the crazy lines like the others despite being right near the UCLA campus. The only negative about this location would probably be difficult parking (if you’re driving) and the occasional crazy homeless person getting free samples and generally making it sorta messy.

Cheesecake Bites

I always get cheesecake bites on my yogurt. Yum!!

Reeses Buttercup

Another thing I always get :)

Peanut Butter

Ok, I really like peanut butter so of course I get the peanut butter yogurt.

Pumpkin Pie

Perfect with cheesecake yogurt.
