ATK Hot Spots :: Ground House Burger, Silva's Fresh Eatery, & More


***DISCLAIMER :: The meals were provided complimentary but the reviews/feedback below are of my own.***
There are so many cool places out there and I can't just wait to share them one by one...
It's funny because I initially started my bloggie to also share some yummy food places that I've been to so you can try them out too! I get asked where to eat often and that's what my old Food for Fridays posts were for. Somehow I stopped doing them and I think, realistically, I can't post about food every Friday (due to my busy schedule) but I can post a group of some of the cool places I've come across together. Hence, my new series called ATK Hot Spots highlighting different places to dine at. Hope you enjoy and bon appetit!

Ground House Burger at Trade Food Hall
2222 Michelson Drive, Irvine, CA 92612
#groundhouseburger #tradeirvine
If you are a burger fanatic then Ground House Burger is a must eat place! Founders Andy Nguyen and Chef Fernando Valladares have come up with a variety of cool burger concepts but their most popular is their magical burger that comes on a rainbow bagel with rainbow sprinkles and even marshmallows. We ended up getting the ono burger that came with pineapple cause we are a sucker for anything sweet and savory plus we got their fry roulette which was more than plenty of food for us! Perfect for sharing and eye catching for sure.

Silva's Fresh Eatery + Churrascaria
3672 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92704
#silvasfresheatery #charrascaria
I can't believe I've missed this hidden local gem in the heart of Costa Mesa. Silva's Fresh Eatery + Churrascaria offers fresh, organic, and locally sourced ingredients to create their Brazilian inspired dishes. Our favorites from their chef's table menu were the picanha (culotte style top sirloin) with chimichurri sauce on top and skirt steak - both were delicious! If you're looking for tasty Brazilian food with a casual setting, this place is it. I also liked how you can go and pick whatever you want and get your protein choice right away. Go during their happy hour or power lunch time for some good deals. Bonus? It's all you can eat here so come hungry.

Utopia European Caffe {at the Tustin District}
2489 Park Avenue, Tustin, CA 92782
A little taste of Europe has hit the city of Tustin! Located at the popular Tustin District is Utopia European Caffe. A super cute, trendy {and yes, Instagrammable spot} to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea, desserts, and sandwiches. Great spot for a date or catching up with some girlfriends! Tanya and I sat in their outdoor patio and enjoyed their hibiscus lemonade which was subtle, light, and refreshing - I'd definitely come back for more. Plus the European vibes and London decor is getting me majorly excited for my Paris/London birthday trip this month!

Portside Fish Co. at Trade Food Hall
2222 Michelson Drive, Irvine, CA 92612
If you're already at the Trade Food Hall, another spot to check out is the Portside Fish Co. which is also founded by Andy Nguyen and Chef Fernando Valladares. If you love seafood (I'm slightly allergic) then they have choices galore. From the classic fish & chips to fish tacos to calamari to even their huge San Pedro platter which includes the whole sha-bang, even a whole grilled lobster!

Dough & Arrow
3033 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626
Ending this hot spot series on a sweet note. Dough & Arrow is a cookie and coffee shop based in Costa Mesa. Besties Gigi Pascual and Jennifer Green are no strangers to the food industry so it was no surprise when they came up with a food concept together. Here you'll find a variety of cookies (including seasonal monthly flavors), coffees, tea, and cookie dough. I don't eat cookie dough but their baked cookies are some of the best I've ever had. My ultimate favorite though, is their s'mookies cookie which their version of a s'mores cookie. Genius, absolutely genius. Go try it and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Which place do you want to eat at next?

As a sweet tooth lover, I'm craving to go back and get some more s'mookies cause, boyyyy, are they addicting. #whatdiet As always, thanks for reading and sending you hugs!
