Medieval Times at Buena Park Castle!

Sophia says: Hi Readers! This week we went on vacation to L.A. On the first night we went to a restaurant called Medieval Times. It is shaped like a castle, and knights sword fight in front of you while you eat dinner. It was amazing!!!!! First, you buy a ticket at the entrance or you can make a reservation ahead of time. After you do that someone gives you a paper crown with a certain color on it. Ours was blue. Then you enter into the bar where you can buy drinks. The knights fight in another room where there is a big arena and you sit in certain sections depending on your crown color. The dinner and show starts at 6:00 so if you get there early, you can shop at the gift shops. Josh and I got a mango slushi at the bar before dinner. When it's time to eat, you sit at the arena and you cheer for your knight. Its awesome! The knights sword fight, joust and do cool tricks with their horses. One part was where a horse was dancing sideways! The dinner is castle bread, tomato soup, chicken, ribs, potatoes and pastry for dessert. Our waiter was super nice and during the end of the show, he gave all of a the girls a carnation. Also you get to eat with your hands! (there were no utensils in the medieval period).  When the show was over we got to meet all of the knights. They were super nice, even the bad guy. One of them even looked like Thor from The Avengers movie. Overall, I had a wonderful time!
P.S Our vacation was great!

Josh says: Hi Readers! We had the best dinner ever! We went to Medieval Times and it is awesome. It is a place where you get to watch to people fight on horses and without horses. You also get to eat amazing food, like dragon meat and dragon soup and the dragon soup tastes just like tomato soup and the dragon tastes like chicken. And the most fun part it that you eat with your hands!  And you cheer for a knight that is on your side. We had the blue knight and the blue night did amazing tricks. I think he was better than the other knights. The best part was the blue knight won the battle by fighting a bad guy.  And the bad guy got sent to jail forever. After the show I got a wooden sword and wooden shield. And I got to meet every single knight. It was my favorite dinner and I would definitely come back!

Paul says:  Great surprise in Southern California! A well produced show and true horsemanship skills. The dinner was fantastic, surprisingly delightful.  The young guys who were the knights are really skilled riders, you can tell they love what they do.

Jodie says: We had so much fun and it was such a great night! I had no idea what to expect and everything was wonderful.  We had about an hour before the show to walk around and see the costumes and the beautiful horses before the show.  The service was great and the food, the show, the arena was all put together so well. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend anyone visiting the LA area to give it a try!

Rogers Deli!

Sophia says: Hi Readers! Today for breakfast we went to Rogers Deli. They have donuts, omelets, pancakes, sandwiches, and french toast. I split the blueberry pancakes with my brother which had two big pancakes and eggs. When you order, they give you a number and call it when your food is ready. Ours was #4. This restaurant used to be just like a donut place that my dad and brother and I used to get donuts from, but now it is a restaurant with inside and outside seats.  I also ordered orange juice which is in the drinks display. I liked my food and next time I would come back and try a donut or a cinnamon roll.

Josh says: Good morning Readers! Today we went to Roger's Deli for breakfast. We got to sit outside because it was such a beautiful day. First we ordered at the counter and I ordered blueberry pancakes. My pancakes tasted delicious! And it also had scrambled eggs and the eggs were good. I would probably come back. 

Paul says: This was a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent and the plates were huge and easy to split. The decor is very basic with more seating outside than inside. I would definitely go back.

Jodie says:  We have driven past Rogers Deli for years and I have never eaten here until today.  It is a very casual restaurant/store set up. We got there at 9:30am and it was already crowded. Paul & I ordered the bacon omelet to share. All of there breakfast plates come with toast and home fries. The portions are huge and it more than enough for 2 people. The counter service is friendly and everything else is self serve. The inside was very crowded but there were plenty of open tables outside. The prices were also very reasonable. I'm glad we had a chance to try it out and I would like to go back sometime for lunch.
