5 Places to Eat During Show Season

In Southern California, we hit the car show season and we hit it hard. Often times the crew is so busy we don’t have time to get a good lunch, so after every show we like to unwind and get our grub on at one of our favorite eateries. In different cities we tend to have our go-to spots:


Anaheim

We typically have an early call time for SpoCom Anaheim. Luckily it’s a short drive to Downtown Disney, we tend to migrate to ESPN Zone for food, drinks, and a competitive round of basketball and hockey. It’s entertainment and food under one roof.

Long Beach

Between set up for Wekfest LA and the opening of the event, we always have a couple hours to kill. Located an Uber ride away, is Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffle. There’s no substitute for a savory fried chicken and cinnamon infused waffle, with gravy and syrup of course!dayuumscottie_roscoes


Las Vegas

At SEMA, it’s often difficult to find a restaurant that can seat a large group of people and food that will cater to everyone’s taste buds. Inside Caesar’s Palace is Bacchanal Buffet. Bacchanal has an upscale setting with 15 or so daily chefs. The chefs will add their own personal touches to the dishes. Current price for dinner is $52, so keep your gambling to a minimum or place that one last bet to pay for yourself and a friend. Don’t forget to wear your fat jeans for this round.justdayuum_bacchanal


San Diego

After AutoFashion’s VIPFest or during set up intermission for Extreme Autofest our favorite is Phil’s BBQ. It’s quick, simple, and good eats. With 3 locations to choose from, you’ll have to get all your ducks in a row, or you can wait at least an hour or two.dayuumscottie_phils2

San Jose

Wekfest San Jose is a two day set up. Saturday we set up, Sunday is the event. After set up on Saturdays, we head to San Pedro Square Market. Tucked away in the marketplace setting is Konjoe Burger Bar. An Asian and Pacific Island inspired burger joint which brings Far East flavor to meat and poultry. Konjoe, Muay burger (no longer on menu), and Pork Belly Boas are some of our favorites.dayuumden_koejoe

Before Sunday’s event, it’s Pepper Lunch. A combination of a sizzling hot plate and raw meat. A quick DIY feast that’s delicious and gratifying!dayuumscottie_pepper

Asian American Expo & Anime Impulse 2016

Words and Photos by Gilbert

Kicking off the new year with some new coverage of a local event, formerly known as the Chinese American Expo, the Asian American Expo is hosted at the beginning of each year to celebrate the coming of the Lunar New Year Festival, with the goal recreating the New Year celebrations found across Asia at this time of the year. Food, shopping, entertainment and fun – these are all annual staples that can be found at each year’s event. In conjunction with this event the creators of the KTOWN Night Market and the OC Block Party, they introduced the first Anime Impulse event that happened side by side with the Asian American Expo. The Anime Convention-like setup was a really relaxed event with what appeared to have vendors and artist alley sharing the same space and people could buy various merchandise, prints of popular cosplayers, sit and enjoy some panels or presentations and just generally check out the sights aside from all the food from the other areas of the expo.

Anime Impulse also brought out a fun line-up of Itasha cars. These are popular sight in japan as fans display their devotion to their fandom in the form of their vehicles.

The street food is what the KTOWN Night Market / OC Block Party are known for so there’s tons of food vendors from all varieties of food available for the attendees.

The other exhibit halls featured all sorts of merchandise from food to home goods.

Even Selfie Sticks were on sale. Why would someone need 3, I’m not sure.

Also I found this gem on my way out from the food court.

Basically it’s a crisp waffle-like cake with a condensed milk filling as seen below.
