Happy Thursday, Whittier. I've been thinking lately how I just don't blog half as much as I used to. So, this is my first attempt in, well, a long time. If you like the nature of this post and want me to try something specific, drop me a comment below!
Today I wandered around Uptown Whittier and found myself at one of my favorite places for lunch, The Commoner. Yes, you heard right, they're now open at 1:00PM for lunch. They spruced up their menu a bit and added some of these items below! First, I tried 'Kaleos Katsu Melt', packed with a 3 cheese blend and pineapple-jalapeño jam! Woooo, this one was good and very filling! And of course, my go-to, SALMON POKE! I literally order this every single time I'm here. The Commoner is the only restaurant in Uptown Whittier that makes poke bowls!! They now offer 3 different variations of poke; salmon, spicy tuna & hawaiian. Not only is The Commoner a great place for a bite to eat + an awesome craft beer, but it's also home to the Obregon brothers. They're a creative, hard working bunch, constantly striving to make their business and Uptown a fun place to visit. Stop in for lunch and say "HELLO!" while you're at it!
