Anita Lau is the well-known and closely followed Diary of a Mad Hungry Woman blogger. She principally shares her Orange County and San Diego finds with her followers but there is an occasional Los Angeles find along the way, too. Her prose comes to life with her accompanying food photos. We’ll catch-up with Anita with both a profile of a San Diego and Orange County restaurant.
A new favorite of hers in La Jolla is Catania, part of Whisknladle Hospitality. She is over the moon for their Charred Local Spot Prawns. “There are no words to describe how mind-blowingly delicious these plump crustaceans are.”
In Costa Mesa Anita raves over the pre-theater dining at Leatherby’s Café Rouge at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Executive Chef Ross Pangilinan (a previous guest on the show) puts a lot of creativity into planning these special menus themed with the shows.
“This blog is a journal of mostly my eating adventures, but also, other things I’m passionate about, including travel, the arts, and also, necessities to complete my life. Centered predominantly in and around Orange County, CA, some will extend to Los Angeles, San Diego and beyond. I am constantly searching for delicious food to eat and fun things to do, nothing is out of bounds. Sometimes it doesn’t end well, but I can definitely say, it will always be an interesting journey.”
