Just had to share these…

Hello, world, remember me?

My love for food hasn’t changed.  I suppose blogging has kinda lost its lustre.  In the year since my last post, I’ve had some of the best food EVER.  I’ve been inspired to break my cyber silence.  If you’re in SoCal, you must try these:

The #19 at Langer’s Deli (downtown Los Angeles).  Best pastrami sandwich ever!  This legendary restaurant isn’t just hype.  Their thick cut pastrami is juicy, perfectly seasoned and pleasantly smokey.

Monte Cristo Egg Rolls at North End Caffe (Manhattan Beach).  Kahlua pork with ham and swiss cheese in a cracklin’ crisp egg roll!  Wow.  Seriously!  Wow.

ANY Cupcake at My Delight Cupcakery (Ontario).  Gourmet cupcakes in “The 909”?  Folks, it really is all good in da hood!  My Delight can hang with any of the fancy-shmancy cupcake shops in West L.A., even Sprinkles.  Gotta try the “Breakfast Cupcake” (buttermilk cupcake with bacon and maple frosting)!

Pizza Bianca at 800 Degrees Pizza (Westwood).  Think Chipotle or Quizno’s, but with pizza.  You start with your dough freshly rolled out before your eyes.  Then you go right down the line and completely customize your pizza with premium ingredients (sauces, oils, cheeses, meats and veggies).  When you’re satisfied with your creation, your pizza goes right into the blazing hot (800 degrees, I’m guessing) wood-fired oven and cooks in just 60 seconds!  Yes, you read that right.  One stinkin’ minute!  We went “less is more” with the Pizza Bianca which is simply extra virgin olive oil, garlic, mozzarella cheese and sea salt.  So simple, yet so divine!

I’ll report on more of my delicious discoveries soon.  Maybe.
