A Visit to Anaheim Packing House

Following a wonderful fundraiser for the leading Mayoral candidate for the city of Anaheim (home of Disneyland), Ashleigh Aitken, I wandered down the street to the Anaheim Packing House. What was formerly a packing house for oranges and lemons, is now packed with restaurants and people. What a fun place with live music, trendy decor, […]

Fair Food

(11 photos) The County Fair has a reputation for crazy food, but it seems this year was even crazier than my last visit…the word food should be used lightly! Wandering around the food booths, I must admit not having had a clue what to buy for my dinner. I ended up with a corn dog on a […]

Berry Pickin’

Kat and I took a spontaneous drive up the mountainside to Oak Glen this past Sunday, for berry pickin’! What a grand idea that was, and just an hour’s drive from home. We spotted wild berries along our favorite nature trail, but ended up at Snow Line Orchard  for the actual picking. The charge was $13 for three empty plastic baskets, row upon […]

Calories at the County Fair

Disclaimer: SueBee and Kat are not responsible for weight-gain or heart problems caused by viewing these photos. My last article featured photos of People Watching at the Orange County Fair, while this one will focus on the vast array of Food offerings. Not having been to a county fair in years, I’d forgotten about this part of the experience. I felt overwhelmed while taking […]

Eat Here! Red Lion Tavern

My recent adventures in the Silver Lake and Angelino Heights area of Los Angeles (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4) started when my son invited me to lunch at the Red Lion Tavern. I hadn’t been there in ages, but was pleased everything looked the same, and the food tasted as delicious as […]

Rice Cake with Vegetables…Sauteed Garlic String Beans….Shrimp and Green Melon Dumplings….Vegetable Fried Rice…some of the most delicious Chinese dishes I’ve ever had!   Din Tai Fung Dumpling House, located in Arcadia down the street from the L.A. Arboretum, has easily become one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. They have a couple other locations in Southern […]

Eat Here! North Woods

Look at that, will you! Snow in Southern California!!! 🙂 One of my favorite restaurants since childhood is Clearman’s North Woods. I have many fond memories of the days, long ago, when my dad would take our family to the one in Arcadia. We’d wait in the bar for our table, my brother and me enthralled […]

Eat Here! El Cholo

For the best Margarita in town, or a carnitas street taco, or grilled corn on the cob, or green corn tamales….. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that both Kat and I highly recommend El Cholo Mexican Restaurant. There are several locations, with the original being just west of downtown Los […]

Noodle Soup

Discovered my all time favorite ramen place in Downtown Fullerton, called Kopan Ramen. Absolutely delicious! Super affordable, large portion, and a vegetarian option! Their “Veggie Ramen” has the most wonderful tasting broth, and is loaded with delicious vegetables. The last time I visited, I decided to try their “Soft Shell Crab” appetizer as well…first time […]

It’s Like Frozen Cotton Candy!

Discovered a new shaved ice shop in Brea called Snowland! Absolutely incredible! The second you take a bite, the ice melts in your mouth like frozen cotton candy…unlike any shaved ice I’ve ever had! With a multitude of flavors, my favorites so far are Mango and Lychee. There are a variety of toppings you can […]

Eat Here! Hawk’s Head

We had a wonderful family get-together for Thanksgiving yesterday, with lots of feasting and fun. My 96-year-young mom (Kat’s grandma) stayed over an extra night so I could show her my new favorite place of Oak Glen today. This morning, the sky was a dark gray, and rain was coming down pretty steadily as we left. I […]

“Peeling Apples”

Samples of apples grown on his Snow-Line Orchard, in Oak Glen near Yucaipa in Southern California, being peeled and laid out for us to try. So many different kinds of apples, each fresh as they can be. There’s nothing like going straight to the source… the taste can’t be beat! Crisp, juicy, sweet, tart! ~SueBee (photo […]

It’s time for a delicious home-style meal served in a country, cozy atmosphere, surrounded by the most beautiful mountain scenery, apple trees, and a quaint country village! Visiting Apple Annie’s in Oak Glen is comforting, and […]

Eat Here! Philippe’s

French Dip sandwiches at Philippe’s are the best. I’ve been going to Philippe’s in downtown Los Angeles since I was a little kid, and it hasn’t changed (thankfully, it hasn’t changed!). My memories were refreshed this past weekend when I walked over from Olvera Street for lunch. Yup, it’s just as I remembered… wood shavings […]

Eat Here! 85 Degrees

Looking for a place to satisfy your sweet tooth? Try 85 Degrees! This delicious bakery cafe specializes in Asian pastries, cakes, coffee, and teas. Their prices are super affordable, which is great because I always end up with a tray-full. An article on KPCC from early 2013 refers to them as the “Starbucks of Taiwan” […]

The Roadside Inn

Damp, blustery, overcast all day, in a lingering sort of way… Fall chancing a visit as old friends do, inviting me to pause and chat awhile, and maybe snuggle up for a brief stay, at the roadside inn down by the bay. ~SueBee Photo taken at my favorite pub, the Side Door in Corona del Mar

Eat Here?? Magic Restroom Cafe

While driving along the 60 towards L.A., I noticed an outdoor shopping center to my right (in the City of Industry). Craving a Thai Iced Tea and an Egg Custard Bun, I decided to explore the shopping center and see if my sweet cravings could be satisfied. I did find a delicious tea house and […]

A Kale Tale!?!

I’ve had a good laugh over the recent kale craze. The curly-edged grayish-green leaves have long been used almost exclusively as decoration, ever since salad bars became all the rage a few decades back.  While I can’t pinpoint on a calendar, kale jumped off the edge of the salad bar to become Southern California’s eat-healthy, […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
