From Mac n Cheetos to top-secret burrito menus, today you can watch the California Dream Eater passionately and hilariously eat his way through some of Southern California’s best restaurants on behalf of foodies everywhere.
Created by Visit California, “California Dream Eater” is an original “eatertainment” series that follows culinary connoisseur Chase Ramsey in his search of dream eats across the Golden State. The program, which launched its pilot season during summer 2015 featuring America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, Sacramento, has already received more than 5 million video views.
“’California Dream Eater’ is an extraordinary stage to showcase some of California’s most sought- after culinary creations,” said Caroline Beteta, president and CEO of Visit California. “Because the program is crowdsourced, we’re really getting an authentic look at what dream eaters everywhere want to sample, and Chase’s hilarious antics keep them coming back for seconds.”
The new episodes released this week feature restaurants across Southern California including San Diego, Huntington Beach, Long Beach and Los Angeles. In San Diego, the California Dream Eater realizes his deep-fried and icing-covered dreams at Donut Bar; experiences true “Cali-Baja” cuisine at Galaxy Taco; and learns about bone marrow charring at WhisknLadle. In Huntington Beach, he samples the classified sauces and secret menu burritos at Sancho’s Tacos; enjoys fresh seafood and California craft brews at Sandy’s; and learns the art of wine pairing at Sea Legs Wine Bar. While in Los Angeles County, he stops at Long Beach’s The Attic to try their Mac n Cheetos (mac n cheese topped with candied bacon and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos!), before heading to downtown LA to find out what an Eggslut is and to taste the cold brew horchata and quesadillas at Guisados. All videos can be viewed on YouTube and at visitcalifornia.com—be prepared to laugh out loud!
To stay true to “California Dream Eater’s” signature phrase “You insta-gram it, I insta-cram it,” featured locations were selected through a crowdsourcing effort with help from the local destinations’ social media channels.
“California Dream Eater” is currently taking orders for Northern California. Viewers can suggest their favorite California restaurant by following @CaliforniaDreamEater on Instagram and tagging their suggestions with #DreamEats.
The launch of these new Southern California episodes ties into the sixth installment of California Restaurant Month. Throughout January 2016, foodies are invited to combine a passion for healthy, locally sourced meals with iconic Californian vacation experiences, enjoying everything from prix fixe restaurant promotions and chef tastings to foodie events and wine samplings.
