When Fluffy meets All Flavor No Grease

Watts hit All Flavor No Grease is now rolling in a food truck, having earned the cash to jump from a driveway taco and quesadilla operation into something a bit more legit. That didn’t stop Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias from checking the place out a while back for the premiere of season three of his Fuse show Fluffy’s Food Adventures.

There’s a clip of the pair together, eating and cooking and talking about the All Flavor concept that everyone has come to know and love. The full episode airs tomorrow night on Fuse, but stick around until the end of the above clip for a nice surprise.

A whole new Gold Diggers

Gold Diggers in East Hollywood has been reborn as of a few months ago. The unassuming dive bar was taken over this spring by folks from the Short Stop in Echo Park and now features an updated decor, themed party nights, and way better drinks. Time to give this old haunt a new look.

Brunch drives

LA Magazine offers a kind of wild tip for saving a few bucks on weekend brunch: Drive to Santa Barbara. The Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara does an expensive $80 option on weekends, but anyone willing to get up early can join in on the similar buffet offered to hotel guests pre-9 a.m., views included.

Ria Barbosa returns

Former Go Get Em Tiger chef Ria Barbosa is returning to the stoves for one night later this month, cooking as part of the latest Pelican Taiwanese pop-up happening around Los Angeles. No word yet on what her next formal move will be.

Taix’s French moves

Echo Park legend Taix is getting in on all things French this month, says LA Weekly, with a slew of special dinners, one-off nights, and other affairs for the local Francophile. Plus the place is just as charming as always, so it’s worth a stop no matter what.

More Downtown Indian food

A new Indian food option has hit Downtown, this one called Mr. Marsala. It lands at 949 S. Figueroa, and seems to have just opened last week in the former EJ’s Bites space across the street from L.A. Live.
