Laguna Hills and Mission Viejo

Moe’s Deli, Lake Forest

There was a time in my life where I spent a lot of time in Lake Forest. In the morning I would train at one of the many MMA gyms in the area and eventually end up at a LAN center to play video games. At the time, there weren’t many neighborhood sandwich shops in […]


Deemer’s American Grill Laguna Niguel CA

When people talk about the city of Laguna Niguel, the subject of food rarely comes up. I spent most of my childhood here and it’s never been a hot spot for interesting food. Recently, I’ve noticed more eclectic options moving in and Deemer’s American Grill is among the best. Their claim to fame is a […]

RockFire Grill Title card

RockFire Grill, Mission Viejo CA

Rockfire grill made it to my favorites of 2017 List mostly for one reason: The Flatbread. Imagine a combination of Naan bread mixed with a French roll. It’s really what differentiates them from a lot of other sandwich places in Orange County. I was torn between two burgers: the carnitas burger with feta cheese and jalapenos or […]

TK Burger Mission Viejo

TK Burgers, Mission Viejo CA

I’ve driven past TK burgers in Mission Viejo for years and never noticed it. As someone who prides themselves on their ability to find the best food between bread in the world, It hurt me to think that I passed this place up for so long. To be fair, it’s location is kind of hidden. […]


Skimmer’s Panini Grill, Mission Viejo

Skimmer’s Panini Grill in Mission Viejo, CA has been serving the neighborhood since 2003. I drove past it a lot during my senior year of high school, but I mostly hung around the shopping center for the bowling alley nearby. Suffice it to say, I was stuck in a nostalgia warp when I drove through […]

Teddy's Deli Title card

Teddy’s Deli, Laguna Hills

Inside of a Laguna Hills business center among forklifts and warehouses is Teddy’s Deli: a hidden gem with an eclectic lunch menu. Like a lot of great gems in Orange County, it takes a bit of navigating to get to, but I assure you, it’s worth the time. It came highly recommended by a friend […]

Stefano's Golden Baked Hams

Stefano’s, Laguna Hills

When it comes to food, there are two sides of Orange County. The southern end of OC is a bit sparse when it comes to interesting restaurants; it takes a little more effort but you can find gems around South Orange County. Once you hit the Irvine area, you begin to see more variety. Luckily […]


Second Reef Deli, Laguna Hills

It can be hard to find “Mom & Pop shop” restaurants in South Orange County.  You can usually find more unique choices once you get to the coastal cities but it can be difficult sometimes. Second Reef Deli is hidden inside of a quiet strip mall next to a Joanne Fabric shop and it’s been the […]


Spike’s Fish House, Laguna Niguel CA

Part of the reason why I decided to write about sandwiches (other than my unhealthy obsession for them) was that you can find a sandwich almost anywhere in the world at almost every restaurant. It doesn’t take a genius to realize the cost effectiveness of putting ingredients already on the menu in between 2 pieces of […]

Mr Pickle’s Sandwich Shop, Lake Forest CA

Sometimes it just takes a name to lure you in, it’s a sound strategy for any business to bring some people in to try their product and hopefully tell others about it. The name “Mr Pickle’s Sandwich Shop” was one of those revelations for me (no accounting for taste I suppose), it also had a […]

Kosher Bite Deli, Laguna Hills CA

The other day I was waiting in line at the Laguna Hills DMV watching all the happy faces fumbling through forms, teenagers trying to pass their driving tests, and others furiously trying not to explode in rage when I was struck by hunger. Admittedly I was in a bit of a foul mood (the DMV […]


King’s Fish House, Laguna Hills

King’s Fish House was recently renovated, so the photos in here will be a bit outdated! I’ll try to go back soon and Re-review! Feel free to check out another Laguna Hills Sandwich spot! I was driving around Laguna Hills the other day running errands and I found myself struggling internally over what I wanted for […]

BallPark Pizza Meatball sub

BallPark Pizza Laguna Niguel, CA

It may sound a bit cliche to some, but I really did have an amazing childhood. I had weird friends who enjoyed being weird around each other. One of my fondest memories from childhood was going to “Ball Park Pizza” in Laguna Niguel with my friend Brandon and his dad Roger. Brandon was involved in […]

Submarina Laguna Niguel, CA

**Submarina is Closed*** Check out some of the other sandwich places in the area!   So I was shopping for wine at a local BevMo! the other day and I noticed that there was a sandwich shop in the center that I hadn’t been to. So like anyone would do I yelled “WHO FAILED TO […]
