Sip On This: 5 Twists on the Classic Irish Coffee for St. Paddy’s Day

posted on March 13th, 2019 by Leslie Thomas

One of the most delicious ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or just warm up on a cold night, is with a nice cup (or two!) of freshly-brewed Irish Coffee. The original recipe calls for a cup of hot coffee, a pinch of brown sugar, heavy cream or Bailey’s, and of course, Irish whiskey such as Jameson. We suggest Trying out a coffee base from Illy or Kicking Horse for an exceptionally rich and smooth cup that is fair-trade and sustainable, too. Although the classic recipe is the perfect way to spruce up your usual caffeine fix...on a weekend, of course, you’ll soon find that the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow was actually a pot of Irish coffee with these unique twists. Sweet Like Caramel Just like a caramel latte, with a festive spin. Add 2 teaspoons of butterscotch Schnapps to an 8-ounce Irish coffee for an even sweeter sip. One cup will definitely have you feeling the luck of the Irish! All the Chocolate, please Who doesn’t love chocolate? For a… Read More

Exclusive Ramen Bar at Our New Yorba Linda Store

posted on March 13th, 2019 by Leslie Thomas

Slurp up! We're getting in on the Ramen noodle trend at our new Yorba Linda store opening April 13th. Not only because fancy Ramen is deservingly trendy in the U.S. these days...with California and New York taking credit for most of the earlier action, but also because it is just so darn delicious. And soothing to the soul. And quite photogenic too! Did you know that Ramen is not originally from Japan? You read correctly - Ramen noodles actually came from China but were introduced to Japan in the 19th century...and well, the rest is history. A worldwide culture craze, if you've indulged in a really good bowl of Ramen noodles (no, we're not talking about the 30¢ store bought packages), then you definitely understand what the fuss is all about. If you haven't tried Ramen yet, then we urge you to take a trip to Los Angeles' Little Osaka, on Sawtelle Blvd, where you can get one of the best bowls of your life. And if you're willing to wait until April 13th and live close or are… Read More
