There are million reasons why you go to Disneyland, it really is the happiest place on earth. Or maybe I’m just a child trapped in a woman’s body, I don’t know. I swear I am just happier there. I don’t think its the same for everyone though, my dad hates Disneyland. Like swore he’ll never go back the last time my mom dragged him there for two days spending the night at Disneyland resort with the family. I don’t think he’s been back since, and this was probably fifteen years ago lol. Every time we had family visitors from Israel, of course they wanted to go to Disneyland, and my dad, trying to be the good host and a good sport that he was, would suck it up one last time (he hoped), always describing waiting in hour long lines to go on a less than 2-minute ride was “torture”. Well, I can’t say the same for myself. I love bringing people there from out of town- I get to relive my childhood all over …


Amazing burger alert! I’ve been to Plan Check Bar on Fairfax a couple times now, and I keep going back for their burgers. The “Chef’s Favorite Burger” in particular. The first time I went to Plan Check, I tried the “PCB” (Plan Check Burger) and was blown away by how good it was. The second time I tried the “Chef’s Favorite Burger”, and I decided I liked that one even better. These burgers are extremely rich- they are saucy and sloppy but if you’re in the mood for it and hungry, it’s extremely satisfying and delicious. I recommend trying both. I loved the crunch bun on the “PCB”, but I loved the cheese, bacon and hot sauce on the “Chef’s Favorite”- and it also has a fried egg! One thing that was unique about both these burgers is the “ketchup leather”. Instead of traditional ketchup, it’s in a texture of a fruit roll up. I was skeptical when I saw it on the menu because you know I love my sauce, but it worked perfect with …


I had to stop at Ike’s Place in San Francisco. I’ve had it on my San Fran “food bucket list” after I saw it on an episode of Man Vs. Food with Adam Richman on the Travel Channel a few years ago. You know I love me a good sandwich or burger- it’s my favorite food. So it was only appropriate that out of all the incredible culinary restaurants that San Francisco has to offer, I chose to get down and dirty with an epic, sloppy sandwich at Ike’s Place. Not only did I have one of the best sandwiches of my life, I got to meet and chat with Mr. Ike Shehadeh himself! He suggested what sandwiches to try and I ordered all of his suggestions, (obvi). The sandwich Ike told me to personally order was the Paul Ruebens, made with pastrami, french dressing, poppyseed coleslaw, and I substituted swiss for havarti cheese. The variety of sandwiches offered at Ike’s Place is overwhelming but in a good way- there is so much to choose from and all the …


You know I love a good burger. I was invited to Hache LA in Silverlake to make my own burger in their kitchen! I did everything from grind the meat, make the patty, grill and garnish the burger. I even got to make my own fresh strawberry basil lemonade and homemade custards! I had so much fun. They use steak meat from a sirloin cut and you can see them grinding the steak meat as  your order.  At Hache LA, they make all their sauces from scratch as well as their custards and specialty drinks. You can taste the quality, and everything is delicious. It is a great burger so for all you burger lovers out there, make a stop at Hache LA and tell me what you think! I personally recommend the “Karma Burger”. The special Karma sauce is addicting! Enjoy!!!


I’ve been dying to try this place for so long! I had seen mouth watering pictures on Instagram of these amazing looking breakfast burgers for awhile and finally made it there last week. It’s located inside the Grand Central Market in Downtown LA. The line looked long, but it only took about 15-20 minutes. My favorite food is a good burger or sandwich, and the sloppier and saucier the better. So seeing pictures of the Eggslut sandwiches on Instagram was love at first sight. I ordered the “Fairfax” and added bacon and avocado. It was delicious, and I will be back for more.


Hi guys!!! I took a day trip to San Diego to visit my cousin Scott Slater’s new restaurant, S&M Sausage & Meat. The food was eclectic, innovate and delicious. I was in foodie heaven, for real. I have to say, every dish was amazing but my favorites were the white chocolate bacon, the “Coconut Not Mac N’ Cheese”, the Kangaroo Sausage and the “S&M PBJ”. Oh, and I can’t forget the Pig Ears! I also tried the Rabbit Poutine, Venison Meatballs, Alligator Sausage, Rosemary Bacon, & The Bacon Fat Deviled Eggs which were all delicious and very well-executed. The menu is quirky, experimental and incredibly unique, and I was so impressed with the taste and flavors of everything I tried. I’m so proud of my cousin… well done Scottie! If you are in San Diego, S&M Sausage & Meat is a must try. Take a look at the video of my S&M experience below!    


I finally had the chance to eat at Bestia in Downtown LA. I’ve heard so much about this place from other foodies and seen a lot of write ups about it online, so I was really excited to finally have dinner there the other night. Everything was good, but one thing we ordered was exceptional. If you go to Bestia, you must try the Roasted Bone Marrow. It is served on top of Spinach gnocchetti, crispy breadcrumbs with aged balsamic. You scoop the marrow off the bone and mix it into the Spinach gnocchetti and it’s just off the charts…the flavor and texture together make the perfect dish . The flavor in each dish really takes this place to the next level. You could really distinguish all the different ingredients and spices everything we ordered. The menu is very unique and the presentations are innovative and creative as well. I have to head back to try their different pizzas, I heard they’re amazing. Other things we ordered: Burrata Salad, Mussels & Clams (spicy!), Cavatelli alla Norcina, Spaghetti Rustichella & the coffee & donuts for dessert.
