Gloria’s Cafe (Culver City, CA) – Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives

May 11, 2010

This spring must be the season for TV appearances! Yes, yours truly has hit the small screen again! This time, I’m not plugging myself but one of my favorite Mexican/Salvadorian restaurants in Los Angeles – Gloria’s Cafe.

If you’re wondering if my 5 seconds in the spotlight influenced my glowing review, then you’ve never had Gloria’s sopa de 7 mares. I wasn’t lying when I said it was my favorite thing on the menu; I would bathe in that broth if I could. The seafood overflows from the bowl, the octopus and the squid are soft and never chewy, the scallops are succulent…

…I think I just made myself hungry.

So here’s my huge congrats to Gloria’s Cafe! You deserve all the publicity you get!

ABC7 Says I’m A “Food Paparazzi” – National Broadcast

April 30, 2010

So remember that kABC7 story I was so excited about just last week?

…Well, we’ve gone national.

Now if only my 2-second sound bite had some kind of link to my blog but, alas, that’d be too easy to get national coverage. But, for all you people out there watching the clip, you know that’s me! (I’m up to a total of 7-seconds of fame! Whoo!)

ABC7 Says I’m A “Food Paparazzi” – Local Broadcast

April 24, 2010

For those that may not know, I WAS ON TV TODAY. Local news, yes, but on camera nonetheless!

kABC7 in Los Angeles did a little bit about the “food paparazzi” (i.e. people who take pictures of food at restaurants) as part of their 11 o’clock news and yours truly was featured in it. It’s an understatement that I was freaking out when I saw myself on screen – my hands are still shaking a little bit.

Our little on-screen moment was shot at Petrossian, a restaurant that, from my prior reviews (here and here), you should all know I love. Not only is the food amazing, but the lighting there is just so perfect – not much editing needed to get deliciously enticing photos.

Thus, in honor of my little 5-second on screen performance, a sneak peek into my most recent meal at Petrossian. (You can read the actual review here).
