Ocho Rios Grill

Lawndale - I like to visit and try new restaurants around town to try various dishes on their menu. I'm not a food critic by any measure. The enclosed is a blog of my recent visit to Ocho Rios Grill. This is a new restaurant in the Southbay that opened for business in May 2013. Ocho Rios Grill is Jamaican-American Cuisine in the city of Lawndale, California. The address is 14400 Hawthorne Blvd, on the Southeast corner of Hawthorne Blvd., and Rosecrans Avenue. Located inside the strip mall that is anchored by Millennium Shoes and Big Savers Foods.

First of all I shall start by saying in a typical nonchalant and uppetty English way, how bloody dare you, how dare you tell the average cheese loving American what he or she can or cannot eat, and how dare you even try to justify it.

I should probably also explain to those that don't know, mimolette or 'boule de lille' as it's also known by is a cheese made in the French town of lille. The cheese was originally requested by Louis XIV and has a distinct orange curd not too dissimilar in colour to my own county's 'red leicester' cheese. But what makes this cheese pretty unique is the... Read More

They are known as frankfurters, tube steaks, wieners, dogs, wienerwurst, red hots, and sausage…what is this all-American food? You guessed it!! It’s the Hot Dog! No outside summer activity would be complete without them. Picnics, barbeques, and hot dogs are about as American as apple pie and Chevrolet. And why do I mention this tasty little piece of American delicacy? Because today, July 23, is National Hot Dog Day!!! Actually, July is National Hot Dog Month.

All across America, every summer, large amounts of hot dogs are cooked on the barbeque and consumed by the millions. The National... Read More

Miri was born at the foot of the Himalayas, foretold to become shaman of the Adi people, her advice sought often when illness gripped the land. Her hut was east of the Upper Siang valley, found by the natives only when the need was great. That seemed odd since it was hard to miss, of two levels, made of dried mud and bark. The roof would open when a rope was pulled so Miri could read the stars at night. No one knew her age but it was believed everyone was younger than she.

One day after she picked the leaves of the Xingzan tree which she would grind up and drop in an open kettle... Read More
