Laguna Hills and Mission Viejo

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 […]


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, Laguna Hills

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 […]


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King’s Fish House was recently renovated, so the photos in here will be a bit outdated!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 […]
