If you haven’t heard of it yet, you’re missing out. That’s how I felt when I heard about it and saw several posts on every social media I have.

You will love this donut-like-croissant-nutella-filled goodness. I promise you, if you’re a sucker for sweets and NUTELLA, this is the best thing ever invented. Try them out and let me know what you think!

Snackin in Glendale

Woah, feels like I’ve been away for so long. This last week of May is really killing me with all the birthdays and spontaneous events going on.

Anyway, here’s one place I frequent whenever I feel like munchin and go people watching lol 😁

Giga Fries - Chili BBQ / Sour Cream & Onion

O.M.G. i love Potato Corner! They have more new flavors, I believe, but I always get my Sour Cream & Onion half with Chili BBQ. The hubbs got cheddar last time to change it up a bit lol. We’re daring like that haha. So yea, we just eat our fries and sit there with our shades on watching people. Lmao. Man that’s creepy. It’s just fun seeing how people interact nowadays. Majority of them on their smartphones. Sigh. Even kids, with iPads. Oh gosh, I remember the good old days when having fun meant going outside to play and literally get dirty from running around the neighborhood, climbing trees, getting bruises and scratches from tripping but then stand up again cause it’s nothing really. It’s just good old school fun. Haha. I feel so old.

I Wanna Taco Bout It

I used to work in the Simi Valley area and loved going to this Mexican restaurant called Tico’s. Unfortunately, it’s a 30 or so mile drive from me and with gas prices nowadays, I’d be spending food budget on gas money. 😭 But if you guys are ever around the area, check them out! I love their food, plus they have huge servings for the price!

Okay, so moving on. Seeing as how I felt deprived of having a local taco place I can go to when I have cravings, my search began. And then, my friend told me about Señor Fish in Eagle Rock and OMG I’m in love! 😍

Ensenada and Al Pastor Tacos

3 Ensenada Tacos, Al Pastor, and Carnitas

Looking at these pictures alone is making me crave badly. 😮
Each taco costs around $3, I usually just get two cause they’re really filling and they don’t skimp on the meats so you definitely get your money’s worth. And yes, everything we ordered so far ¡es muy delicioso! 👌

Parking is good too, just thought I should mention this from now on. My hubbs and I drive lowered cars so we like to know whenever we go somewhere new if our cars would fit in the parking lot or if there will be humps or dips that we’d have to avoid.
If you drive a lowered car, you’d have to park side street but it’s not so bad since it’s on a corner street of a residential area.

I got their Beefy Bao and Spam Bao.

It came with a side of either macaroni salad or chilled edamame. I picked the edamame and glad I did, I liked the citrus-y touch they put on them. It was probably lemon or lime, I don’t know but it was yummeehh. Also, I got their shop fries which was sprinkled with garlicky, herby goodness. 😋

The baos were bomb 👌👌👌 yessirr, although I had a bit of trouble eating the Beefy Bao cause it kept falling apart but it was all good. Spam Bao wasn’t anything special in my opinion, it was spam in a bao with some onions and greens and tomato but I don’t like tomatos in my burger or baos so I just took it out. Still tasted good though! 😁

Good environment, they had music playing so none of those awkward silent moments haha and it’s located near a lot of other chill spots in LA. Will post more about that soon!

If it’s free, it’s for me 😁

Living in LA, I like to scout around to find the best food places and chill spots in the area. If I find something really good, why not share with the world so they can enjoy their awesomeness too, right?

So here’s one of them, and if you guys check them out before the month ends you could get a free crépe. *

My beshie and I went to Crave a couple of weeks ago to get caught up since she’s been very busy with work and I missed her.

We went to the one at Studio City since it was close by and we were trying to avoid LA traffic, we originally wanted to go LA foodtrippin, but we met up a little past lunchtime and traffic sucked ballz.

Anyway, Crave has this feel-at-home-but-you’re-not-really-home feel. There were people on their computers, some reading books, doing homework, and others just chatting up a storm. Overall, a good place to chill and catch up with friends. And of course, we got a free crépe and that in it by itself made it an awesome day to be there.

Now go and get your free crépe!
Try their drinks too,, I got the Mocha Frap which tastes completely different from what they make at Starbucks. Not too sweet, you can actually taste the mocha not just the sugar just how I like it. But to each his own.
