Secret Recipe: Juhu Beach Club's Masala Chai Tea

There's something about masala chai that just warms our hearts, and we can't think of a better blend than the spiced goodness being served at Oakland's Juhu Beach Club. Now you can get the same feeling at home with the JBC official recipe. Feel free to add bourbon or dark rum for a treat!

House of Prime Rib Has a Secret Menu ... and It's Delicious!

A Bay Area institution with a cult following, House of Prime Rib has been serving quality cuts to locals and tourists alike since the 1940s. In fact, the iconic restaurant goes through upwards of 5,000 pounds of meat per week(!), which means that the shiny steel-domed “meat zeppelins” that make the restaurant so fun, have carted around millions and millions of pounds of prime rib over their long life. That's a lot of meat sweats.

Secret Recipe: Grits with Goat's Milk Curds at Al's Place

Al's Place was named The Best Restaurant in America by Bon Appetit Magazine last year, and we have a feeling that their grits had something to do with that decision. Topped with goat milk curds and shaved parmesan cheese, these are some of the tastiest grits you'll ever put in your mouth. Make them at home for a dinner that's sure to impress everyone you know.
