The One about Carniceria Panaderia y Taqueria in Lemoore, California

I was passing by Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California and stopped by a market/restaurant, Carniceria Panaderia y Taqueria.

Going inside, you approach the market, but you go to the right and the area that sells burritos and tacos are located […]

The One about Batman Day – September 23, 2017

On September 23rd, DC Comics and many comic shops around the world celebrated BATMAN DAY.

The One about Habi Sushi in Porterville, California

I have eaten at awesome sushi restaurants throughout Japan and in America, I’ve eaten sushi throughout California. So, whenever people tell me to try a restaurant out, I usually wait in three’s.  That is if I hear three people telling me to check it out, then I’ll have to check it out! While most often the sushi locations are in the Bay Area or Southern California, the latest place is […]

For 2017, for a lot of small towns in California, I have been visiting a few small Mexican restaurants to try the dishes (primarily burritos) and seeing what is out there.

I decided to try Taqueria “La Piedad”, a small restaurant that was a little crowded during lunch time. Most […]
