With no shame whatsoever, Quizno’s follows in Subway’s footsteps with their 5 dollar sandwich campaign. Let the rumble begin:
Reports across various news outlets have been noting that McDonald’s has temporarily stopped serving tomatoes on their hamburgers due to a precautionary tactic against the reports of possible salmonella traces. It seems other fast food chains may follow suit, some have reported that Jack In The Box did not include tomatoes on their sandwiches either (in the past few days). Let us keep Heinz in our prayers. (Thx LA Times)
Lastly, according to Gaywired.com, you don’t want Salmonella:
- Salmonella bacteria can cause diarrhea (which may be bloody), fever, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Serious and potentially fatal cases are more likely in young children, frail or elderly people, and people with weak immune systems.
I feel like everyone should learn how to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies from scratch. They are easy to make, relatively inexpensive, fill your kitchen with a cozy aroma, and late at night they are irresistible, especially when paired with an ice cold glass of milk.
I’m writing to ya’ll from my University Student Center, which is currently packed with students sweating over the impending arrival of finals. I wish I didn’t have my own studying to consider, so I could just amass a collection of snacks and pass them out to everyone on the grind. For now, pictures of this quintessential cookie will have to suffice. Enjoy!
Dear friends Consuelo and Okita stopped by the Foodbeast HQ to hang out and catch up. We decided to bake some chocolate chip cookies. These two kids are awesome! Hopefully they can lead the Bay Area Foodbeast movement, so keep an eye out!
These puppies are definitely ready for the oven!
It’s amazing what 20 minutes in the oven can do.
Here at Foodbeast, we have taken notice that our subject matter (anything and everything food related) is beginning to afford us a very nice luxury. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t love food, and nearly everyone I know has something exciting to contribute during a conversation about good eats. Today, Foodbeast field correspondent Mang is taking us to a place he raves about in Chino Hills, CA: Bravo Burgers. Just like all the kids raised in Chino Hills, we grew up on the killer diner food they serve here, especially their unrivaled breakfast fare. Mang and his two brothers John and Matt were kind enough to take us on a tour! Check it out:
That’s John waving on the left, and Matt looking like a thug.
This place gets pretty packed on weekend mornings, as you can see from the hustle-and-bustle behind the counter.
Mang raves about this, the complimentary fresh chips and salsa bar.
Matt’s choice: The Colossal Burger, loaded with bacon and pastrami.
This burrito is a local legend. It’s a warm tortilla loaded with bacon, egg, cheese, and french fries, the classic components of a quality breakfast meal. If you go during breakfast hours, you can get it with fresh hash browns. Nice.
Foodbeast runs in this family.
If you are looking for some great breakfast and down-home diner cooking in the Chino Hills area, give Bravo Burgers some love.

During Burger King’s 2007 year of promotional material, the burger conglomerate tested the waters by creating a campaign revolving around customers reacting to their signature Whopper hamburger supposedly being taken off the menu. While most likely not part of the original campaign, these Minnesota inhabitants did not take too kindly to the news:
I couldn’t resist with this video. Here’s a young kid about to do work on a nice ice cream cone, and I just imagine someone off screen trying to grab it…but the boy ain’t havin’ it! Enjoy:
For those unfamiliar with the hungry fellows over at Orisue clothing, they are a juggernaut of an independent label based out of Orange County, CA. These guys are a complete lifestyle brand, and we were fortunate enough to have a few pictures sent to us from their Los Angeles office while they held a photo shoot for their upcoming Summer 2008 Collection. What the hell does this have to do with food? Apparently these guys can cook up a storm at work, get a load of some of this food porn:
Pictured above is Vince of the Orisue crew, gettin’ his foodnetwork on.
Into the picture comes Holland from the online streetwear superstore, Karmaloop.com, and Orisue’s President, Allen Doan.
The Karmaloop camera crew was also in attendance doing a quick little piece on the brand for their website.
Bacon wrapped chicken eventually served with Alfredo sauce!
Spicy tuna tartar served over guacamole on a fried wonton crisp. Can you say “FOODBEASTS” ?
Travis from Orisue tells us that no eat-session with the crew is proper without rice. I definitely wouldn’t complain.
Above is some sizzling seasoned seabass gettin’ the Bobby Flay treatment.
U-N-I in the house as well.
A lot of other brands, and bloggers for that matter, seem to end up having food-related posts at least twice a week. To us, those were the entries we found most enticing, so this is one of the reasons Foodbeast exists. In the end, it looks like the Orisue crew does it hard in the clothing game, and then comes home and does it even harder on their food hustle. The above pictures are a prelude to their Summer 2008 lifestyle shoot, so make sure to keep an eye out on their website and from their select retailers to pick up some pieces of their new season! (thx: Travis)
