The Counter: Custom Built Burgers (Irvine, CA)

A few weeks ago Victor (VYaniePhoto) and I were cruisin’ around in Irvine, and I mentioned to him about The Counter, a place he had never experienced. In typical Victor Yanie manner, he went all out and ordered their one pound burger. Basically this burger could feed a small African village, but that’s how Vic rolls, Foodbeast to the core. If you haven’t ever been to The Counter, you really should go because it’s quite awesome and the food quality is amazing. Check the rest of our trip after the jump.

Hopmonk Tavern: Sebastopol, CA


A few weeks back I made a trip up to northern California to visit my uncle and cousins, for one of their high school graduations. Sebastopol is a small little hippy town full of long beards and indians, and clearly some amazing places to eat. Hopmonk is a tavern, bar, beer garden, and a dance club and after a long day it was the perfect place to eat and drink. Check the pictures after the jump:
