SoCal day 3: Burnt Crumbs, Bosscat, & Classic Q

Headed to Burnt Crumbs for an early lunch since Tammy missed out on it last time. We were a bit early and they hadn't opened yet. 


So we headed to Irvine Spectrum Center which was on the other side of the freeway, to burn some time.

It was a few minutes before 10 am, so shops were barely opening.



Saw on the directory that there was a Hello Kitty Cafe so we stopped by to check it out. They were still setting up.


Just your average pastries dressed up in Hello Kitty fashion.


The box is an additional $2 or get it for free if you spend over $25....  -_-




Browsed around one of the shops and saw that they had Rick & Morty blind boxes. I was really hoping to get Ghost in a Jar, but ended up with Mr. Poopybutthole

Headed back to the cafe so that they can sucker Tammy into getting that box.

Made our way back to Burnt Crumbs




Spaghetti grilled cheese.

Great combo with the side of marinara. You have to eat it there, probably not as great if you get it to-go. It's so crispy.

Hand cut chips and fries.

Avocado toast: smashed avocado with house ricotta.

 Pretty good if you really like avocado.

Buffalo Chicken Toast: Sriracha Buffalo Chicken, coleslaw, & blue cheese.

Didn't know what to expect from this, but it was really good.

Roast Beef: shaved roast beef, provolone, arugula horseradish mayo, ciabatta bread.

I'm not a big fan of roast beef or horseradish, but this was pretty good. Horseradish wasn't too overwhelming, it had the right amount.


Headed back to our friends house to pack our things and hangout for a bit. Then we headed to Bosscat Kitchen & Libations since it's located really close to the airport and we wanted to be in the area early so that we could avoid traffic.



Cornbread Madeleines  with Huckleberry sweet cream butter. These were awesome.

House pickled vegetables.... I didn't like these that much.

Pulled Pork Hush Puppies: Cornbread battered pork, deep fried, Carolina barbecue mustard.

These were pretty good and had a nice texture. If you like cornbread then you'll probably like these.

Whiskey Okra: grilled scorched okra, Chinese sweet sausage.

These were okay also.

Spent the rest of our time at The Classic Q playing darts.

Taco Tuesday... Tacos were whatever.



Buffalo wings on happy hour.

That ends our trip. Just a quick getaway.

Next on the agenda is Bahamas... Trip report coming soon.
