Food Porn Friday | Bella Cuba | Santa Ana


A total mom-and-pop shop in the corner of a busy Costa Mesa marketplace, Bella Cuba looks like just another franchise popular with corporate lunchers who flock to this area for their afternoon break. Upon entering this bright bazaar, you’re instantly greeted with heart happy Holas! and service with gleaming white smiles. It seriously goes uphill from there with some of the best house-made sangrias this side of the Atlantic.

Food Porn Friday | Juliette Kitchen and Bar | Newport Beach


Ask me what my favorite type of cuisine is and I will almost always exclaim FRENCH!!!
I love the aromas, I DIE for butter, and don’t even get me started on the plethora of stinky cheeses humminaaaa huminaaaaa. So when Traditions by Pascal closed earlier this year to make way for another dining establishment, my heart leaped out of my chest, plummeted on a nearby butcher block, and was bludgeoned to death by rusty cleavers knowing full well that yet another one bit the dust. Mind you, I don’t even think Traditions was that spectacular, but when 1 out of maybe 4 good French eats closes down around town, I scream bloody murder and weep until someone answers my call. 

Rebirth


I gotta admit guys, this was one CHALLENGING week for me. Where personal issues have me clearly preoccupied and business ventures have me swerving every which way but straight, the blog’s been relegated to a space that I would never desire to corner her in again: the backburner.
