Picture this: it’s a Thursday night, you have plans to see your significant other, or just want to catch up with some friends and you guys decide to grab some dinner at a sushi bar. Now the question is, what sushi bar? Well my Fab Eaters, allow me to introduce you to Sushi Moora. This sushi bar offers delicious, fresh-tasting sushi that is sure to drive your taste buds crazy!
Hawaiian food: it can be a hit or miss when it’s eaten on the mainland. Nonetheless, we all have our favorite go-to spot when the Hawaiian food cravings hit us. Authenticity is hard to find and with that, I introduce you to Aloha Food Factory. Located in the San Gabriel Valley, this restaurant is truly a gem in the city of Alhambra, offering a variety of home-style Hawaiian foods.
My Fab Eaters, let me direct your taste buds this week to some amazing coffee (no, not Starbucks). Allow me to introduce you to one of the coolest coffee bars I’ve been to, Intelligentsia Coffee. Located in Pasadena, Intelligentsia offers fresh-roasted coffee, literally. Intelligentsia doesn’t just buy coffee to sell, but the company actually collaborates with their growers to develop the coffee used at their various coffeebars. What makes Intelligentsia different from any other coffee shop, you ask? Intelligentsia is simply amazing! The highly skilled and talented baristas at Intelligentsia offer consistency in their taste and presentation of the coffee served here, something you Starbucks lovers may not always get.
When it comes to pizza, I am one picky eater. When I plan on eating pizza, you will not catch me ordering from the local Domino’s or Pizza Hut food chains. Not to knock Domino’s and Pizza Hut down, but this girl loves a good pizza! If you think either of these establishments serve a good pizza, you have been fooled my Fab Eaters! You need to treat those taste buds of yours to Bollini’s Pizzeria Napoletana located in Monterey Park.
To my Fab Eaters, allow me to once again drive your taste buds crazy! This week, I introduce you to the Crepe. Crepes, which originated in France, are very thin cooked pancakes made from wheat flour. Within the crepe, you will find various fillings such as jams, fruit and whipped cream. Sounds delicious, right? Where can you try one of these fabulous desserts, you ask? For starters, you don’t have visit France! Instead, you can visit a local crêperie, Crepes and Grapes Café located in Uptown Whittier. The Crepes and Grapes Café offers a variety of delicious crepes. The crepes served here are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!
When you think of the typical house of worship, a sacred, church-like sanctuary is what comes to mind, right? Who would’ve thought that someone would take the concept and interior designs of a church and apply it to the theme of a local bar? With that said, I introduce you to Congregation Ale House, a gastropub located in Pasadena.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to the French Macaron–a small piece of heaven from the pastry gods. For those of you who don’t know what a macaron is, it is two brightly colored, meringue based cookies from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and sugar. Within these two cookies, you will find a jam or ganache filling. Yummy, right?

We all know and love the typical Mexican “street style” tacos we’re used to. This can include the ever-so-popular carne asada taco with onions, cilantro and salsa.Thanks to my boyfriend, Martin, a lifelong resident of East Los Angeles, I now know the difference between a good and bad taco. With the new trend of “fusion style” foods, street tacos have evolved over the past few years and are now being served on food trucks and in restaurants. Fusion is the combination of different food and cooking styles to create new tastes.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t too keen on trying tacos that didn’t have the traditional “street style” ingredients. When I did, I thought they were just okay. One weekend while in the Silverlake area in Los Angeles with some friends, we decided to stop by a gastropub off Sunset Blvd. called Diablo Taco.
