by Nicole Muj It’s true that in Southern California one can find almost any kind of cuisine from Western and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia. Cuisine from Asia is as diverse as one country is from another, as is the style of food preparation and price range. Recently two different but very unique dining experiences came to my attention – Los Angeles restaurants 8 Korean BBQ and Q Sushi. With locations in Koreatown and Buena Park, 8 Korean BBQ is the only concept restaurant around that features eight curated flavors of Hungarian Mangalitza pork belly. The elaborate feast for two or three persons, serves up appetizers, seafood soybean stew, mozzarella kimchi fried rice and pork bell in a variety of flavors – original, wine, ginseng, garlic, herb, curry, miso paste and red pepper paste, all prepared in traditional Korean BBQ style, by a very friendly, professional wait staff. The restaurant also offers an array of Argentinean grass-fed beef, … [Read more...] about Southern California Dining Discoveries with an Asian Flair

In areas with high land costs like Cherry Creek and LoHi, paired homes have become a favorite of builders for their large feel and their relatively low cost-per-foot. Mitchell Wright is among a number of builders who have begun doing those now in neighborhoods bordering South Broadway in Old Englewood, where walkable restaurants are arriving and where prices are way lower than in those trendier areas. LIV Sotheby’s International Realty agent Diane Huttner will show you a newer version of one of those homes Sunday, July 29, from 1 to 4 p.m., at a price well below what those go for in LoHi or Cherry Creek. A 10-minute walk from Englewood’s light-rail station, you can tour 3027 S. Elati St. — three bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths and 2,072 feet of finished space, plus a basement, oversized alley-load two-car garage, and plenty of fenced backyard for your labradoodle or miniature shepherd to explore. Wright built this only two years ago, but Huttner notes that its price of $575,000 … [Read more...] about Close to Englewood’s “SoBo,” newer triplex townhome is walkable to dining, light rail

When one considers factors like everything from high-end restaurants and Stella's corned beef hash and fried green tomatoes to chefs scoring James Beard Award semifinalist nods and Andrea Gonzmart Williams spreading the Tampa Cuban sandwich gospel, it's no surprise more national exposure is coming our way.In late January, a few eateries in one of the region's most poppin' food cities, St. Petersburg, were given the opportunity to film with a national television program, highlighting what they bring to the table on a bigger stage.The premise of Cooking Channel's Cheap Eats is for its host, Ali Khan, to go on a taste adventure through one town, in one day, and on a budget. The show made stops at The Wooden Rooster, Brooklyn South, (swah-rey) and Red Mesa Cantina while eating … [Read more...] about Another TV program shines a culinary spotlight on St. Petersburg’s dining scene
