Hello Philz Coffee El Segundo!

I love you to the moon and back….cup of love.

Philz Coffee has officially “landed” in El Segundo! The sixth Los Angeles location just opened it’s doors at Apollo Landing; El Segundo’s premier new hot spot for casual dining.

It is no secret that I crush on coffee houses and this new Philz Coffee is very much crush worthy. Right by their outdoor patio one will instantly spot the space themed 9×55’ mural that LA based Artist & Muralist Cloe Hakakian customized for this location. The mural has in bold letters “I love you to the moon and back” and this very much true of how this foodie feels about this new Philz Coffee.

Philz Coffee is all about brewing every cup β€œOne Cup at a Time.” Each of their “cups of love”  are crafted to every individual customer’s taste with the goal of making people’s better days. It surely made my day today. πŸ™‚

They recommend that the first cup to try is β€œPhilz Way.” Philz Way consists of a cup of love with medium sweet with cream. My new favorite is the Mint Mojito. This drink has fresh mint with just right hint of sweet.

The blend that was refreshing, flavorful, creamy and so smooth. I instantly fell in love with my cup of love. It was unique, tasty and wonderful.

In addition to my Mint Mojito; I got to try several of Philz Coffee’s different food offerings.

I loved their savory offerings. The Mediterranean Avocado Toast has egg, chives, zatar, olive oil, sea salt and pepper while their Hummus and Tomato Toast has feta, chives and sumac. Both were excellent!

Their sweet treats were equal in deliciousness. From cookies to croissants; every thing paired well with their coffees. Some of my favorites include the white chocolate cashew cookies, the almond croissant and the blueberry muffins.

To the new Philz Coffee; welcome to the neighborhood. I am so happy you have landed at Apollo Landing. I love you to the moon and back already ;).

Hello Grand Opening of 2nd Lee’s Sandwiches in the South Bay!

It’s been almost a year since I went to the grand opening celebration of the very first Lee’s Sandwiches to open up in the South Bay in Torrance, California. I had a lot of fun during that event and so when I heard a second South Bay location was opening up, I made sure to be there for more grand opening celebration fun!

A second location means another location to get Lee’s popular fresh hot baguettes!

Their baguettes are used for their famous bahn mi sandwiches! I made sure sure to pick up one of those sandwiches when I stopped by the grand opening event. Since it was breakfast time, I chose to get a Bahn Mi Op La or a Vietnamese fried egg sandwich. Lee’s Sandwich’s version is packed with two sunny side eggs, pork slices, house pickle, onion, jalapeno, cilantro and their house mayonaise. A fried egg always brings a little bit more deliciousness to anything and delicious indeed sandwich was. The crispy baguette was perfect for dipping for the messy, yellow yolk oozing out from the eggs. The house pickle brought plenty of flavor! There was plenty of veggies inside. Eggs and vegetable delight!

A grand opening celebration meant treats for all today! For every bahn mi purchased, folks could choose between getting a free iced coffee or a free baguette! Their fresh baguettes pops out of their ovens every 30 minutes!

Their iced coffee is another Lee’s Sandwiches customer favorite. It’s a blend of Vietnamese style French pressed coffee with condensed milk. It’s perfectly smooth, nicely rich in taste, giving a morning kick to everyone who drinks it.

It’s great to have been part of another grand opening celebration of Lee’s Sandwiches and it’s definitely a great feeling to know that another place for delicious bahn mi and iced coffee is in the neighborhood! That definitely brings a smile to this hello kitty foodie.
