A Valley Kid’s Guide to: Brunch

No posts since July 1st?! Trust me, I hate myself just as much as the rest of you do HAHAHA. All jokes aside, I’ve been really busy with school, work, Kappa, and tbh, the funds for TFM were running pretty low due to festival and convention season. But I figured with my 1 year anniversary for Total Foodie Move coming up, I should probably get something up for this half of the year!

So here are some of my fave go-to Brunch spots in the good ol’ San Fernando Valley!

LONG TIME NO BLOG POST. Given how busy I’ve been with the semester starting up again, becoming active in my sorority again, but as well as getting deathly ill, there hasn’t been much opportunity to go out and adventure. This past weekend I was, however, able to go out on a short hike. This little trail called the Topanga Overlook, located in the canyons, provided a bit of exercise and great bonding time for our little group.

what happens in SD…


I spent my 21st birthday in San Diego this weekend and I’ve gotta say it was one of the most fun nights I’ve had. There were so many places we wanted to go, but alas, not enough time 😥 I did get the opportunity to visit a few spots I’ve been wanting to try though!

Better Buzz Coffee in Point Loma is as good as it is trendy. Literally down the street from the hotel, we got the opportunity to pay this place a visit. Being the lactard and anti-coffee person I am, I ordered a soy Chai latte for about $4.50. In my head I was like, I’m sure it’ll taste how any other chai latte would, BUT OMG. IT WAS SO GOOD. EVEN FOR JUST A SOY CHAI. Everyone else got things like the Vanilla Buzz and frappes, and even those were good enough for my anti-coffee tastebuds.

Eat This Cafe located in West Hollywood was the most recent victim of my ‘do it for the blog’ endeavors~ The cafe that’s been receiving a lot of PR lately for it’s scrumptious looking eggs benedict, but the cafe itself is located on a corner, and it’s not particularly spacious inside.

However, it didn’t take long for us to get seated. We literally walked in and they were cleaning up a table for us. We ordered the Crab Cakes Eggs Benedict ($15.50), the Buttermilk Pancakes ($11.00), the Avocado Toast ($8.00), the seasonal fruit ($4.00), and the Home Fries ($4.00)(which are basically just potatoes).

Mariah loved the pancakes and I personally really loved the avocado toast. I honestly didn’t really find the crab cakes eggs benedict to my liking, mostly because the more I ate it, the fishier it tasted and I don’t like fish. Besides that, everything else was good! I just ended up eating only the egg for the second crab cake HAHAHA. It was pretty busy but I never really saw anyone waiting around for a particularly long time. It was also funny because when we took pictures of the food, no one even gave a passing glance… it must be a common thing HAHA.

I think I’ll come back again and try one of the paninis 🙂

These photo spots were located right next to the cafe and across the street~

cause I know when that hotline bling…


This trendy photo spot is located near the Little Tokyo strip mall in a nearby plaza called Weller Court. It’s literally a hallway open to the public. If you’re walking from the American Apparel, with the AA store to your right, continue walking down the street, cross the street, and pass the entrance to the parking structure, and voila you’re there 🙂

The hallway lights continually change color so if you’re waiting for that Hotline Bling red, just wait for it… literally just wait. It’s been gaining a lot of PR lately, so don’t be surprised if you bump into fellow instagrammers trying to snap a good pic. Kendrick and I went at like 10PM when the mall was closed and there were couples trying to get pictures too HAHA

Definitely give it a passing glance if you’re in the area AND GO TRY THE DELICIOUS MOCHI AT LITTLE TOKYO OK
