Our four days in Los Angeles were nothing short of magical and our visit couldn’t have come any sooner, as we desperately needed a break from these winter blahs in Toronto! This Awards Season has been the most unpredictable ever I must say, but whether you’re a fan of GREEN BOOK, ROMA, A STAR IS BORN, THE FAVOURITE, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK or BLACK PANTHER, chances are you had to have been happy that these Films at some point along the way were recognized with awards!
While we admit this was probably our most tiring trip to the land of the stars, it definitely was the most rewarding. I’m proud of my experiences and love to share them. Meeting my idols is something I always have loved to do and will continue to for a long time! Check-out some of our Selfies from our star-studded visit to Los Angeles!
We’re saddened we couldn’t find Olivia Colman as we’ve wanted to meet her for a long time now, but how can one complain with these many blessings?
Rami Malek – OSCAR Winner!
Regina King – OSCAR Winner!
Bobby Farrelly – Oscar Winner!
Nick Vallelonga – OSCAR Winner!
Brian Hayes Currie – Oscar Winner!
Mahershala Ali – OSCAR Winner!
But our favourite pic of all? This shot of us on this A Star is Born Billboard for Lady Gaga‘s ALLY outside Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard! Don’t worry, it wasn’t as high as it looks!
And we always enjoy our dining experiences in Los Angeles, whether it be their staple burger chain IN-N-OUT BURGER which I always make time for. Next time you visit, you must check-out The Butcher, The Baker and The Cappuccino Maker. This is the new it-spot for brunch on Sunset Boulevard. Their Mimosa Flights are a must-try as is their gorgeous Colorburst Latte! Their Eggs Benedict with Avocado and Pork Belly is the best we’ve had. EVER. We hear this place is a celeb hotspot and saw it with our own eyes! Eli Roth tells us he enjoyed his brunch a lot.

No, no. Our day started off better! Thank you @bbcmcafe for having us. A delightful brunch hotspot on West Sunset Blvd. which sees easily 90-minute queues for a table. Their #Mimosa Flights are genius: our fave the Hibiscus, their #ColorburstLatte a thing of beauty! #Oysters which taste like they came right out the ocean, their #EggsBenedict with Pork Belly and Avocado was a thing of perfection, the creamy Hollandaise enveloping their herbed home fries. Their Bananas Foster #FrenchToast in a Bourbon Syrup, was exquisite. Their Salmon #Poke light and refreshing. And their desserts looked even better! We loved brunch on the Patio under the California sun, fantastic service and not only do we hear this is a celebrity hotspot (a fave of #Tyga), we saw for ourselves – visionary Filmmaker #EliRoth enjoying brunch!

An institution since the ’80s and a huge favourite of the Kardashian family, CHIN CHIN is set to bring California-inspired Chinese cuisine to Toronto in a couple weeks with its first location ever in Canada, near Rogers Centre. We love their Orange Chicken, Chin Chin Chinese Chicken Salad, Wonton Stars (crab-filled) and Crispy Spicy Honey Shrimp. Traditional American-Chinese flavours and a West Coast freshness.
