Family-Friendly Sushi at Wokcano in Santa Ana

Posted by on Jul 26, 2016 in Asian | 0 comments

 We dined as a guest of the venue Wokcano opened up in Santa Ana a little over a month ago. It is an Asian restaurant that has an excellent bar and serves Sushi and other Asian favorites. My husband and I along with our toddler were invited to have a lunch date here. We went around 1:00 PM and it was not overly crowded. We were quickly seated and left to look over the menu. We decided to start with their crispy garlic Brussels sprouts and some shishito peppers in soy sauce. We loved the Brussel sprouts. They were crispy, and the garlic was not overpowering. My three-year-old was gobbling them up. He thought the crispy outer pieces were chips, and they were so very flavorful. The shishito peppers were cooked to perfection, but we would have liked them...

Not Your Average Waffle at A Waffle Affair

Posted by on Sep 2, 2015 in Breakfast, Reviews | 0 comments

 We dined as a guest of the venue A Waffle Affair in Newport Beach has a unique variety of amazing waffles; we were thrilled to be invited to taste some of their popular items. When we first walked in, we noticed the inside of the restaurant is very chic. A beautiful crystal chandelier hangs above a tall table, and all white booths and tables line the walls. When you first walk in you will order from the counter in front of you. When looking at the menu it was hard to choose what I wanted to try. They have over 21 varieties of waffles. Some waffles are sweet while others are savory. Lucky for me I was handed a tasting menu that had a little bit of everything. First up was the Hot Dog – Bits And Dip. It...

Fast Family Friendly Pizza at Blaze Pizza in Orange

Posted by on Aug 18, 2015 in Italian, Reviews | 0 comments

 We dined as a guest of Blaze Blaze Pizza just opened at the Orange Circle in Old Towne Orange, and my family got a sneak peek at this hot new pizza restaurant. When we stepped inside, we were met with amazing service. They greeted us and asked if we had ever been before? It was our first time, so they talked us through the step by step process, and we were on our way. On the menu board, you can choose one of their pizzas, or you can personalize your pizza with any of the available toppings. You are also able to choose one of their pizza creations and add or take away items from it. This is all for one amazing price. I decided to go with the “White Top” featuring white cream sauce, mozzarella, bacon, garlic, oregano,...

 We dined as a guest of Bruxie What can I say? Bruxie has done it again. Not only have they made the most amazing waffle sandwiches, but now they are making some fantastic salads too. We visited their Irvine location for a little R&D and got to sample some of their new menu items. I was very impressed with the quality of the food. At Bruxie, they go out of their way to bring customers the freshest food possible. From their handcrafted Pure Cane Sugar Sodas to the fabulous Frozen Custard, they have truly made Bruxie one of a kind. Customers can get a waffle sandwich with many different fresh toppings. If waffles are not what you are craving (I have no idea why they would not be) then please your palate with many different offerings. Their cheesy Irish...

The Boiling Crab in Santa Ana

Posted by on Apr 5, 2014 in Featured, Seafood | 0 comments

  Ever since my oldest son Sterling could eat table foods, he preferred more adult meal options. He would gladly skip over kid friendly foods such as chicken nuggets and pizza for things most little kids do not eat like: Sushi, lobster and crab legs. His love of seafood has taken us all over Orange County and the surrounding area in search of the best seafood restaurants. One place that really stands out to our family is, “The Boiling Crab in Santa Ana.” If you love seafood and want a no frills place to eat, that is sure to set your tastebuds on a fantastic trip down flavor town. Look no further. The Boiling Crab will be perfect for you. From the moment you step foot in the restaurant you will realize this place is very unique. Covering the...
