Bruxie is perfect anytime of the day

What's the first thing you think of when you hear the word "waffles""? Breakfast. But no! Bruxie has changed my mentality forever on the concept of the traditional waffle. Bruxie features gourmet waffle sandwiches that can be sweet or savory! This is a completely outdoor, standing eating area, meaning---no chairs!

The Savory Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffle

This is the Bruxie Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffle. It comes with bits of coleslaw and delicious sweet, tangy dipping sauce to pour on your chicken. The waffle itself is very light and airy, with a slight subtle crunch. I would have preferred it to be crispier, but I'll just have to remember to make that request next time I go! The drink peeking in the back was their fresh-squeezed old fashioned lemonade! This combo was soo refreshing (especially after waiting 20 minutes in line).

The sweet, Liege Waffle with Powdered Sugar & Warm Nutella

For dessert, I tried the Liege Waffle with Powdered Sugar, and a cup of warm Nutella. This waffle was really different from the previous one. This one was thicker, crispier and tasted more like your traditional breakfast waffle. I didn't expect the Nutella to be warm, so that was a nice touch. This menu item was not overly sweet, and just a nice way to end a meal.

Satisfy your sushi craving

Introducing...IPPO SUSHI! The best idea since pizza delivery was invented, now sushi delivery. What's different about IPPO Sushi is that they deliver into the wee hours of the night (til 3:00am). I ordered the three rolls above, Spicy Tuna, Salmon Roll and Crunch Roll. My order arrived in a large clear plastic box in about 40 minutes, which isn't bad for fresh sushi!

As for taste, I'd say it did the trick. It's not the BEST sushi I ever had, but it was decent enough to satisfy my craving for it. Oh, and there's a $15 minimum to get free delivery, but it's equivalent to eating at a sushi restaurant for three rolls. Would definitely order again :)

PHO: Good for the soul

My rare steak and flank Pho

This beautiful bowl was crafted at Pho Thang Long in Westminster, CA, where upscale decor and cheap prices coexist. This is a place where water isn't served in the smallest cup possible, or charged $ is FREE and REFILLED to your heart's content. You can even enjoy your meal in peace next to their wall waterfall:

There is just something about a bowl of Pho...whether it's the rich broth, the fresh mint leaves, the crunch from the beansprouts, or possibly the ying yang dipping sauce made with Sriracha and Hoisin sauce. A bowl of Pho always hits the spot, leaving me feeling warm and happy. It's true :)
