This is the 2nd year which OC Night Market returned back to the OC Fairgrounds, this was a fun weekend event which friends and families were able to enjoy an Asian themed food fair from May 8-10th. This year’s event was much better organized than last years, the food vendors were in the same area & wasn’t so spread out as it was before.
LA WineFest returns to Raleigh Studios in Hollywood on May 30-31 and invites first time visitors and loyal fans to sip, explore and enjoy hundreds of wines and beers.
Last week I had the opportunity to attend OC Weekly’s annual event, Artopia which celebrates Orange County’s art scene that varies from visual to performing paired with booths of food & liberation from various restaurants & companies. (more…)
Last month, I had an opportunity to attend an amazing food expo in LA, named Crave Expo.
This event gave a chance for local companies to showcase their food, art work & services to potential customers & marketers. This was a great concept to showcase how future catering services will be carried out. (more…)
I came back to the Playground for a redemption dinner because from what I can gather, Jason Quinn is someone that you cannot help but admire because his passion for food shows in his dishes. He is willing to take a chance to try out new things & push the limit in experimenting on new dishes to see what works & what doesn’t work.
This was the menu of what we had for this dinner because the menu changes every night.
Fish Tacos: veggies fish wrapped in seaweed & breaded: 4 stars
Very crispy & tasty, the Cole slaw topping make his even crunchier. The ranch dressing was yummy & complimented the whole fish taco.
These have the highest pesticide contamination so watch out & try to buy Organic out for these 14 most contaminated fruits & vegetables.
