Kaiza Eats // Figaro

Do you ever think about an ideal food day? Not the one where you have endless hours to cook, but a day when you eat out and everything falls into place (your mouth) and it’s delicious? Don’t hate me, but I keep having them at Figaro. In all honesty, I had never bothered to go […]


With all of us making so much of our lives public, it becomes one big ball of everyone’s photos looking the same, everyone repeating the same quotes—and all of us pressing like. Then comes portablesera. I stumbled upon her website during my nightly Instagram rabbit hole. It however, lead me to a really beautiful place—her […]

Kaiza Eats // In The Heat

The heat does strange things to people. That’s the only explanation I have for a late night numerology session with my roommate, a poorly worded website and the discovery that no matter what number came up, I love saying no. (It does explain why after seeing the movie Chef, during which I smiled the entire […]

Kaiza Eats // Boathouse Style

Kaiza Eats // Burger Edition

Los Angeles is the home of many things, including a staggering assortment of burgers. It’s the land of brioche, slow cooked onions and mountains of arugula, gourmet prices and sous-vide meat. Which, barring this town’s obsession with brioche, I normally love. But sometimes you just want a no-frills burger. A simple, rugged sandwich made with […]

New Food New Year // HomeState

Any place that mentions breakfast tacos (or any tacos, really) excites me. HomeState didn’t disappoint. Adorably decorated with the requisite deer and Texan baubles, it instantly comforts the diner. Located next to Covell, the menu is full of Central-Texas inspired delights, including weirdly delectable Tex-Czech (?!)  pastries called Kolaches. The brisket taco was incredible and […]
