House of Blues Anaheim - Music and Food to feed my Soul

I have always thought of music venues as great places to go and have "bar food", maybe, if you're lucky.  

The new House of Blues Anaheim has changed all of that.  Their dining room and restaurant have raised the bar very high for any restaurant.  Not only is the music venue top notch and an absolute thrill to go to with the high caliber of performers on the calendar.  The menu is a match for high caliber food and absolutely wonderful eclectic southern menu.

A Bar-B-Que menu has just been released and I was hosted and invited to try the new menu items.  If you are a fan of Bar-B-Que, the twist that HOB and Chef Kelvin Crisostomo has come up is extraordinary a southern flair and some fantastic twist to traditional bbq, you will be thrilled.  For example my favorite twist was the Kimchi cole slaw that was served with the pulled pork sandwich.

  • Korean BBQ Riblets: Marinated pork riblets, slow cooked, kimchi (currently available on the Foundation Room Menu)
  • Pulled Pork Sandwich: Slow-smoked pulled pork, BBQ sauce, coleslaw (currently available on the HOB Anaheim Restaurant Menu)
  • Smokehouse St. Louis Ribs: Dry-rubbed, smoked and covered with BBQ Sauce and served with BBQ baked beans and coleslaw *gluten free  (currently available on the HOB Anaheim Restaurant Menu)
  • Bourbon Bread Pudding (currently available on the HOB Anaheim Restaurant Menu

Everything was superb, and don't get me started on the dessert (Bourbon Bread Pudding with Caramel sauce).  I may or may not have tried 2 Bourbon Bread Puddings.

If you're going to a performance at HOB Anaheim, you don't have to go anywhere else, the food, libations, desserts and talent are all just amazing and House of Blues is now an official destination.  

The House of Blues is now located in the Gardenwalk of Anaheim on Katella.  Their website has all information and calendar of events for you to peruse.  This is the night out that is perfect, it has everything you could look for.  Great food,  a very magical atmosphere, and wonderful talent and performances.

 I can say I am a fan of all of their food, my next venture there will be the Gospel Brunch.  

I can't wait to try the food and listen to some amazing Gospel music, feed my soul in every way!
