On May 3, 2012, in Los Angeles, by satnightfoodies

We have not been shy about the fact that we love the Slice Truck. The challenge has been that they are very hard for us to get to. And the few times they’ve come to the O.C. it has been for festivals. We love this gourmet food truck! . (Check out our original article here.) […]

Finally Umami comes to the OC – Umami Burger, Costa Mesa, CA

On April 27, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

A couple years ago, Kim and I had the chance to try Umami Burger in Los Angeles. The only negative about Umami was that they were 50+ miles away from us. It’s worth the drive, but hard to do regularly when you are craving a really great burger. We have been waiting for their much-anticipated […]

On April 4, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

Somewhere in the Twitterverse, I found out about a place called Vault Martini. It is a martini lounge that offers over 140 specialty martinis. Yes, that’s right 140.

Spectacular Donuts in Surf City – The Donuttery – Huntington Beach, CA

On March 31, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

Every once in awhile you hear about a place that people just rave about and it will either be really good or it […]

On March 12, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

We love spicy food; we love shrimp, clams and other seafood. Put those together and you have an addiction that we’ve had to feed every week for the last two months. It started about a year ago when someone turned us onto a place called Boiling Crab in Garden Grove. This place was good but […]
