[Los Angeles vs. Manila #3] Porto’s Cheese Roll
I still can remember a couple of years ago when eating a carbo-loaded krispy kreme donut is a cool thing when you visit the US. … Porto’s Bakery is a cuban family-owned and operated business that has served Glendale and its surrounding areas for over 35 years and they recently opened a beautiful new store in Burbank. One could argue that Becky’s or Conti’s taste a lot better, but the I’ve never tasted a cheeseroll as delicious as porto’s.
[Los Angeles vs. Manila #2] Hollywood’s famous Pink’s Hot Dog
This is one of the famous must-eat destination in LA, and I was extremely curious why a chili dog can be this famous for 66 years! … In the Philippines, we don’t really have something equivalent to this and Ogie Doggie would be the closest but far from the heritage that Pink’s hotdog built over the years.
…There is normally a long line in front of this hotdog place and you really have to drive to this place because it is out-of-the-way.

…If you haven’t figure out by now, the seventh ray is violet and the philosophy is embodied in this description: “We, at the Inn, believe in giving you the purest of Nature’s foods, energized as a gift from the sun with a dash of esoteric food knowledge and ancient mystery school wisdom tossed in for your seasoning and pleasure.
Sunset Over LA :)
I’ll surely miss updating this blog regularly and I’ll surely miss exploring the culinary delights of Manila. … This blog is very fulfilling for me in making connections with other people and in the process, I learn more secrets 🙂 I leave you with this beautiful sunset picture of LA taken during the landing of our PAL flight. My brother was teasing me about some insider secrets of Los Angeles and I might have some posts on our LA adventures.
