It’s from Simmzy’s Eat – Drink – Pub — I had seen photos of great looking food at Simmzy’s and have wanted to dine there for some time. While in Huntington Beach recently, we stopped at Simmzy’s for a Beer and Starter. Only one, since we had just dined at Saint Marc footsteps away, but we had to try something. We opted for the Cauliflower with Cilantro Pesto, caramelized florets with Garlic Breadcrumbs and Lemon (pictured above and described below). It has such a tasty, bold, lemony flavor I had it again at Simmzy’s Long Beach location a couple weeks later.

It’s where the Shore House Cafe used to be when I lived in Belmont Shore years ago.

It’s called the Kettlebar Pan Roast (above) and it’s offered at Kettlebar Southern Seafood & Spirits aka Kettlebar Steam Cooking in Anaheim at the Anaheim Packing District, and in Tustin at The District. Our server at the Anaheim Packing District told us the Kettlebar Pan Roast is their money maker, and after one bite we knew why. Literally one bite. It’s surprisingly one of the best dishes I’ve had. It doesn’t look extraordinary on the surface, but it’s loaded with Snow Crab, Shrimp, Lobster and Chicken. All were cooked perfectly and served in a well-balanced Tomato Cream Sauce. It’s served mild, medium or spicy. The medium spice was just right for us.
Many Kettlebar dishes are cooked in steam pots, but I’m not sure how it’s done. I’ll pay more attention when we return for another Kettlebar Pan Roast. It’s already calling me back.

What? No more Cole Slaw at Chick-Fil-A? Really? I don’t think it’s a good decision, but it does ease my disappointment a bit to have the recipe. Chick-Fil-A says they removed Cole Slaw from their menu to make room for their new Superfood Side (pictured below courtesy of Chick-Fil-A).
Their Superfood Side is actually a Kale Salad with Broccolini, Roasted Nuts and Dried Sour Cherries, which sounds good to me, but I think Chick-Fil-A’s Cole Slaw would appeal to more people, especially since it was a darn good Cole Slaw. Everyone doesn’t like Kale. Please bring back the Cole Slaw.
Until then, here’s the recipe if you liked Chick-Fil-A’s Cole Slaw too.

March just started and we’re already annoyed with the lack of efficiency and under staffing at Knott’s Berry Farm restaurants, specifically those participating in Knott’s Season Dining Pass. Lines are worse than I thought they would be. The Cantina (above) needs more organization. We joke that employees are told to ‘move slowly’ so not to hand out too many meals each day with the dining pass, ha. Could it be? Not saying that, just asking Knott’s to make things better, please.
