Usually, I don’t go out for lunch during the work week but the past few months, we’ve had people visiting from our home office so naturally, per diem needed to be spent so lunch out it was. I got to discover and try a bunch of places I didn’t know about near my office. Photo dump time to clean off my phone!
Banh Mi Burger from Pee Wee's
As you have heard me complain before, there is very little in the way of delicious hole-in-the-wall Mexican around my home. However, my work has this great little taqueria I’ve posted about before, Taqueria Mexico, nearby in Westminster. Guess where we went for lunch today?
$.87 gets you one street-style taco. These are small, soft flour tortillas but they are packed full of your choice of meat, onion-cilantro mix and a spicy red or green sauce.

The all-beef frank was moist and the skin had a little snap to it when you bit in. I wasn’t a big fan of the Big City Dawg. Similar to . . . → Read More
Why OMG Foodie Fest? Because every few seconds, I would tell Husband “OMG, we have to get in line for <insert name of food truck here>…”
My favorite kind of beach…
After our LA Street Food Fest experience, I was a bit iffy about attending another food truck festival. While yes, it’s a convenient way to sample various trucks without hunting them down via Twitter, waiting in line in the sun for over an hour wasn’t my cup of tea. Fortunately, I caved and bought tickets. There were too many trucks on the list I wanted to try to pass up this opportunity. Plus, the proceeds went to kid charities and I’m a sucker for anything to do with less fortunate children.
