Put away the teapot and start your new year with one of the latest trends— home-brewed kombucha. The popular fermented drink made from tea, hot water, sugar and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (scoby) is now brewed at home by many kombucha lovers. Despite it being sold at the local grocery store, the trend has become more popular due to its health benefits and the ability to save you a few extra bucks. “The primary benefit of making it at home is that it saves you m
Sometimes we get so busy craving burritos, tacos, quesadillas, rice and beans that we forget about appetizers at Mexican restaurants. Super Mex on Spring Street gives us a tasteful reminder that appetizers and cervezas with friends and families is as much a tradition in cantinas as it is in other bars around the world. And if you’re like most Mexican food-craving Southern Californians, it might be even more delicious. Here are some of Super Mex on Springs Street’s favorite p
Irish food may not be as commonplace as Mexican, Italian, and Japanese in Southern California restaurants, but when done right, it can be one of the most delicious cuisines around…especially when paired with drinks! EJ Malloy’s isn’t just an Irish neighborhood pub; it’s known for delicious food, especially its four classic Irish dishes. Corned Beef and Cabbage Let’s start off with a classic.

Ollie George Cigliano planted her roots here in Long Beach when her mom unexpectedly gave birth on Ocean Boulevard. She’s been growing things ever since! You might recognize Ollie from her farmers market stand, Ollie’s Kitchen, which serves delicious, farm-fresh sandwiches the way she likes them: with good tomato and plenty of everything! Her consistent use of seasonal ingredients elevates the taste of food in incredible ways. One item from her menu, the Caprese sandwich, is
The last few times I went to Prime by Shenandoah, I’ve been enamored with the seasonal dishes (and rightfully so.) That’s part of what makes Prime so fun and trendy—the seasonal, savory specials! But during my last visit, enough was enough. It was time for me to try the sandwich Prime is known for, which contains delicious fried chicken that’s already locally famous. That’s right, I’m talking about the Granny’s Fried Chicken (GFC) Sandwich. First, a quick history lesson. If y
On a recent sunny, midday afternoon, I walked into my favorite restaurant in Long Beach – Chuck’s Coffee Shop, located at 4120 East Ocean Blvd. The diner, which has been around since 1964, has undergone some slight cosmetic changes as of late. I notice the fresh coat of paint and the beach trinkets hanging on the wall as I sit down at one of the booths that has been recovered in an ocean blue material.

We sat down with legendary Long Beach State women's volleyball coach Brian Gimmillaro at EJ Malloy's in Los Altos as he talked his recent retirement. He told us what Drake was like and we made volleyball even more fun (13:02-40:24). We talked high school football and Long Beach State soccer in "Iron Sharpens Iron" (2:48-11:31) and as always we ended the show with the 908 Athlete of the Week. This week is Poly Jackrabbit quarterback Matt Corrall(43:21-46:32). #shootyourshot #b
