Wilbur Mexicana in Toronto

Wilbur Mexicana is where a group of friends can meet for drinks and a taco or even going out on your own for time alone. This is a spot where anyone and everyone is welcomed, while also offering cheap downtown eats with big flavour. Wilbur Mexicana is named after the chemist that discovered the Scoville scale of spicy heat, Wilbur Scoville. They offer an upscale but casual atmosphere serving up fast cheap eats that you would not expect in the downtown core.

Once you enter the restaurant there is a sign up on the menu board that states, “Wilbur first timers, grab a menu at the door”, when you read this, you look to your left and see some menus hanging off the side rack. Once you figure out what you want to indulge in, you simply order and pay at the cash where you give you a numbered placeholder that contains a photo of a cartoon pepper. If you are dining in, just grab a seat at a table to you prefer and sit pretty; if take out, sit comfy on a stool right next to the cash.

Welcome Mi’hito Sushi Laboratory to downtown Toronto! I was given the privilege to attend a media event hosted by DKLO Events to explore this new sushi joint and all their offerings. Mi’hito opened up their first location in Mississauga (right next to Toronto) and were the first to bring the sushi burrito craze to the GTA (Greater Toronto Area)! I have actually dropped by this downtown location during their opening week and had the chance to try a few of their varieties but this event allowed me to try more.

JaBurritos Sushi Burritos

Imagine your parents owned a sushi restaurant when you were a kid. Now, imagine you have moved across the country and opened the first sushi burrito restaurant in Las Vegas. Now, imagine you just opened the first sushi burrito restaurant on the famed Las Vegas Strip. Ken Aoki, the owner of JaBurritos, doesn’t have to use his imagination–he recently opened his doors on the LINQ Promenade, where he offers sushi burritos, bowls, and more.

Bread & Porridge in Santa Monica

I’m terrible when it comes to eating a full breakfast, I’m usually a cup of black coffee kind of gal.  But nothing makes me happier than being able to sit down and have a full breakfast that’s tasty and keeps me full all day.

Since 1994, Bread and Porridge has been serving up some of the best breakfast on the Westside. I discovered this place when I moved to LA and thought I’d share with you a couple of my favorite breakfast items in town.

Instead of my usual black coffee, I decided to live a little and have a Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate. It was topped with an ample amount of whipped cream (just how I always had it as a kid) and totally hits that comforting spot.

The Ultimate Breakfast Burrito is my favorite item to get here. Not only is it jam-packed, but they wrap it tight enough so it all stays in the tortilla (major points for that!). This is a classic breakfast burrito with rice, beans, eggs, cheddar cheese and pico de gallo, and it comes with a side of house-made salsa, sour cream and guac.
Editor note – I order it with their Cilantro Verde Sausage, made with turkey and chicken in place of the usual sausage.

I really went all out with my sweet tooth here! I also got the Original Belgian Waffle topped with strawberries, Nutella and a fresh vanilla cream. I’m a Nutella fanatic, so this treat really hits the spot.

If you’re in Santa Monica, be sure to pop in!

A Sushi Roll and a Burrito Walk Into A Bar…: Inspiration Roll in Morristown, NJ

They fall in love, live happily ever after, and gave to man <<The Sushirrito>>. Fatboi Tendencies took a trip on a fine Friday afternoon in search of the perfect blend of Japanese and Mexican cuisine. What they found was;

Inspiration Roll

and it was inspirational indeed.

12965007_1761814740716982_754582551_nAfter long deliberation, Jess chose the American Dream, which consists of spicy tuna, cucumber, guacamole, mango, lettuce, tempura flakes, multi-grained rice, and spicy mayo in a seaweed wrap.

Christie decided to go rogue and make her own roll of shrimp tempura, lettuce, multi-grained rice, fried onion, spicy mayo, teriyaki, and cucumber in a seaweed wrap.

In addition to signature and make-your-own sushirritos, Inspiration Roll offers ramen bowls, bao (steamed buns) with pork or shrimp, and sides such as the Confucius Nachos and the R.O.C. popcorn chicken.

If you’re feeling extra artsy and upload a photo of your meal to Instagram and tag @inspirationroll_morristown, you get entered to win a free sushirrito or ramen bowl! There’s a winner every week, what more could ya ask for? Even if you’re not local to Morristown, it is worth the trip to experience this delicious creation.
