You've recovered from Sunday's double whammy of egg hunting and pot smoking. What next? Another tasting event, of course. Sunday, April 27, is when locals can attack an all-you-can-eat lineup of tastes from a grip of beach city/surf city joints. Mark the calendar for an afternoon of sunscreen between 12 - 4 p.m.

Meatballs and more!
If you've been curtailing your Swedish meatball intake, tonight's the night to let loose. IKEA, which is arguably the preeminent source for all things Swedish around here (especially food), is holding its annual Easter Smörgåsbord tonight, Friday, April 11.

The price for "IKEA FAMILY Members" is $9.99 per adult, and $2.49 per kid aged 12 and younger. The nonmember price is $12.99 per adult, $4.99 per child.

Tickets are sold per seating time and are on sale now at the restaurant.

What's in a Swedish Easter Smörgåsbord you ask? Last year the menu went like this:

Insert reason to say, "That's what she said."

Attending a Taste of 'X' isn't all that different from a restaurant week. You're paying less for food, right? The selling point of a "Taste" is one's ability to try a variety of foods in a compact amount of time and space. We walk, we eat, and then we repeat. To participate in one of these dining circles, all you have to do is ante up.

The original Ramen Burger
So the event happening in Huntington Beach this weekend is officially called the Huntington Beach Sister City Japanese Cultural Festival. It will be on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at Huntington Beach Central Park, 7111 Talbert Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA 92648.

And it will have all sorts of events, such as taiko drums, traditional dance, games, crafts and a whole bunch of food vendors. But when one of those vendors is Keizo Shimamoto, the creator of the original Ramen Burger, you know it's going to be much crazier than your usual cultural festival. The first time Shimamoto came to the West Coast to do this, there were four hour lines. Yes. Four. Hour. Lines.

If you're a fan of bulgogi and Hite, the food festival you want to attend this weekend is the 30th Annual Orange County Korean Festival in Buena Park, but if you've attended all of the Mitsuwa food fests and are more partial to sushi than kimbap, then get thee to the Japan Fair 2013 happening at the OC Fairgrounds.

Save The Date: CleanWaterFest Is Coming October 19 with Many, Many Beers

Categories: Food Festivals

Water may be odorless and clear, but it makes a huge impact in the things we consume. Some might even say the key to great 'x' ('x' being coffee, bagels, whatever) is this neutral liquid. While it may not be the case in some instances, for beer, it's imperative.

That's the premise behind next week's CleanWaterFest being held at Whittier Law School. Of course, now you're wondering, "Why hold a beer event at a law school?" Well, Whitter is launching a Coastkeeper Environmental Water Law Clinic, and their dean is on Orange County Coastkeeper's board of directors. Their campus' grassy area with lots of free parking might also be incentive.
