On May 10, 2011, in Los Angeles, Orange County, by satnightfoodies

After watching a segment on the Food Network about Wafels & Dinges food truck in New York, I was wondering how long it would take someone to start a waffle truck in LA. It has been a long wait, but finally there is a gourmet food truck serving up real Belgium “Liege” waffles in Southern […]

Visit to the Cocoa Lounge – Palm Terrace Restaurant

On February 25, 2011, in Dessert Recommendations, by satnightfoodies

We were able to catch the Cocoa Lounge popup chocolate buffet at the Palm Terrace Restaurant before it closes this Sunday.  The Cocoa Lounge is a clever marketing concept to get people into the Palm Terrace restaurant that would not normally think to visit. The food in the restaurant looked good but it was your […]

Love at First Bite – Coolhaus – Los Angeles, CA

On January 18, 2011, in Dessert Recommendations, Food Truck Recommendations, by Mrs SNFoodies

My love affair with Coolhaus began almost a year ago, and it really was love at first bite. I had wanted to try them ever since I’d heard there was a funky ice cream truck that was creating artisanal, hand-crafted ice cream in a variety of unique flavors and sandwiching it between different kinds of […]
