Dandy’s Saucy List 2021

It’s that special time of year my friends… I’ve moved back down to SoCal so I can’t say that it’s gotten colder, but 2021 has been a much more pleasant year than last. I’m more closer to family and childhood friends so the holidays this year are already starting to feel extra special. And what…

The Lobster Roll of All Lobster Rolls!

I’ve had many lobster rolls in my life but nothing like THIS! Broadstreet Oyster Co. in Malibu is best known for their fresh seafood and lobster rolls. They go extra hard and have an option to add uni AND caviar on top of the roll. It’s the best of the best seafood on an incredibly…

The Best Ramen Comes to Los Angeles!

There is one thing I miss about living in the Bay Area: Ramen Nagi. It’s my favorite ramen of all time! The broth is so rich and flavorful and the noodles are straight up perfection. I always get it thiccccc and firm. 😜 They also have chicken kaarage, gyoza, and chashu rice. I actually only…

Wagyu Staircase to Heaven in Silverlake

I had one of the most extravagant meals in my life! Yakiniku Osen opened a few months ago in Silverlake and finally got the chance to try it out! It is seriously wagyu heaven and probably the best that I’ve had so far. You can order a la carte and they have an epic sake…

FINALLY! Double Charburger Available at The Habit

I can always count on The Habit for a good cheeseburger. I’ve always been a fan of their charburgers and their sweet potato fries and tempura green beans. Honestly, a single-patty charburger and at least one side is the perfect amount for a meal. But sometimes I want more… They are finally adding a double…

Go Go Bird = Me

I found it! I pretty much found the fried chicken version of myself at Go Go Bird in Los Angeles. Tbh kind of tired of all these new hot chicken joints poppin up ESPECIALLY since I was so disappointed with Main Chick on my birthday smdh. But Go Go Bird is definitely not another basic…

Coffee Sticky Ribs

Quarantine cooking is all about cooking all the things we wouldn’t have done before and that one thing for me are ribs. I’ve never made them before and they just seemed like this whole crazy and intricate thing. But the best part about taking on challenges like this is the absolute satisfaction at the end…

Deep Fried Filipino Musubi Recipe

Inspired by my last trip to Hawaii, I decided to make some pretty epic musubis. I wanted to add a little Filipino pizzazz by using longanisa and tocino instead of your usual spam or tamago. And for even MORE razzle dazzle, I decided to deep fry those bad boys because why not? I was kind…

Fish Sauce Wings Recipe

One reason I may never become vegan is my love for fish sauce (but if you have a rec for a bomb vegan fish sauce lmk!).  I use it in a lot of different ways: spring rolls, noodle bowls, adding it in fried rice, etc. But one of my most favorite ways to enjoy fish…

Szechuan Spicy Salt and Pepper Garlic Shrimp Recipe

I somehow ended up with twice as much shrimp than I wanted this week. So when your Instacart shopper gives you more shrimp, what do you do? Make Szechuan Spicy Salt and Pepper Garlic Shrimp! I asked Reach what I should make and he said spicy salt shrimp. But when going over the recipe, I…
