Paul’s Deli

Paul’s Deli is a hidden gem in Westminster that has been serving the community for 40 years. I found it by chance on my way to the nearby art supply warehouse (where the rest of my money goes after sandwiches). Paul’s is an easy spot to miss, it is behind an Arco gas station and […]


Laspada’s Original Hoagies

I recently spent some time in balmy Fort Lauderdale Florida, where the humidity made me feel like I was perpetually swimming, even though I was on dry land. My California weather sensibilities have made me a bit of a weakling, so I found myself hanging out mostly in air conditioned rooms hiding in mini fridges […]


Lil’ Pickle

Several months ago I decided that I didn’t have enough stress in my life so I made the choice to go back to school. While driving to Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, I happened upon Lil’ Pickle, A crowded little restaurant with a really endearing logo: Don’t ask me why, but I am a […]


Philippe the Original

I’m not going to lie, Los Angeles pisses me off. The traffic alone is enough to make me avoid the city unless I’m going to the airport (which is a chore in and of itself). Despite the highways feeling more like parking lots in L.A. there is a lot of interesting history here. Philippe the […]


The Ace of Sandwiches

When people hear the name “Ace of Sandwiches” they usually equate it to playing cards. When I first heard the name, I immediately pictured a Top Gun-esque fighter pilot who would do everything without a shirt on. Don’t ask me why, I wouldn’t be able to explain it.¬†I was in Palo Alto, California working at […]


Supernatural Sandwiches

San Diego Comic Con was last week and I am not ashamed to tell you that I spent all weekend there. It’s the pinnacle of nerdgasmic capitalism and a great way to test your patience for waiting in line. In the midst of all my money spending, I was told about Supernatural Sandwiches in Miramar. […]


Cortina’s Italian Market

When I mention Anaheim California to people, they usually associate it with Disneyland and having to take out a loan to buy churros from a cart in the park. While I don’t blame people for wanting to eat near Disneyland, I always get a little upset when my local friends insist on eating around that […]


Olde Tyme Grocery

Olde Tyme Grocery in Lafayette has the reputation of being one of the best sandwich because it’s popular with University students and a must for Catholics during lent. Why is it popular¬†during lent? Because on Wednesdays & Fridays Catholics abstain from eating meat, making Olde Tyme Grocery’s seafood Po’Boys the best option in town.   […]

When I hear the name BurntZilla, I think about a Tokyo sized lizard monster who is slowly developing melanoma. Luckily for our gargantuan reptilian friends, Burntzilla is actually a slider/mini hotdog restaurant in Irvine that specializes in comfort food. I also took the liberty of doing this ultra realistic drawing of BurntZilla for you: I […]



When I had lunch at S’Wich Bistro in Irvine, CA I nerded out like crazy (it had nothing to do with the food). It just so happens that S’Wich Bistro is located next to the world famous “Blizzard Entertainment,” makers of some of the most popular games in the world. They’re also responsible for much […]
