Hot Spot: Happy Hour at Larsen’s Grill

After a long work week, this past Friday my friend Ana and I decided to do Happy Hour at Larsen's Grill at The Collection Riverpark in Oxnard. People are literally waiting outside of the restaurant 30 minutes prior to opening at 5 p.m., so I knew this would be a fun place to be at! [...]

Hot Spot: Cafe Nouveau

I absolutely love going to Cafe Nouveau for breakfast on a weekend, it is seriously one of the best breakfast spots in Ventura! The restaurant is hosted in a 1920s Spanish bungalow and even has an outdoor patio in a Mediterranean setting. It's so gorgeous, it's a must place to dine at! The restaurant does get [...]

Hot Spot: Lure Fish House

When my parents were in town a couple weeks ago, I wanted (ok, needed) to take them to Lure Fish House in Ventura for dinner. I absolutely adore coming here for their drinks and fresh seafood. The place is always packed, no matter what hour it is. It's that popular and the staff is always [...]

Hot Spot: Agave Maria’s

My parents came into town from Florida during Easter Weekend, so on Saturday I decided to take them to my favorite Mexican restaurant in Ventura County: Agave Maria's in Ojai. According to their website, Agave Maria’s was established in the early 60s in downtown Ojai and renovated in 2010 under new owners. I love the establishment because [...]

Hot Spot: Duke’s Malibu

Malibu is my favorite city along the PCH to visit, especially Zuma Beach for sunbathing, taking a walk along the ocean or playing a game of volleyball. But something I love more are the restaurants. Whenever I have a chance, I try and stop at Duke's Malibu for some good seafood. The restaurant was named after [...]

Hot Spot: Carousel Restaurant

I'm Lebanese, so I ventured to Carousel Restaurant in Glendale last week, which makes authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. I have been wanting to try this restaurant since I moved to SoCal in 2010. Seven years later, I finally made it. Yes, I am that far behind in time, but keep in mind I also live [...]

Hot Spot: La Bamba Cuban Restaurant

Whenever I go and visit my friend Nicole and her husband, Fred, in Burbank, I always have to stop at my favorite restaurant: La Bamba. I swear, it's addicting and you will always want to come back for more. I feel like this restaurant doesn't get enough talk and it's worth the drive if you [...]
