Affordable tacos are available in a variety of juicy beef and pork options. Try their Ostiones a la Mexicana, where local oysters get a South of the Border red or green sauce treatment. Tuck into their delicious tamales. Each is a love letter from the kitchen, where a comforting envelope of masa with your choice of pork, chicken, or cheese and jalapeño gets a kiss of sour cream and cheese. For extra flair, try one of their daily specials, including one of their Instagram-worthy Esquites dishes.

Their perfectly steamed baos burst with BBQ pork, beef, spicy chicken, or sweet red bean. The buns are massive, and they don’t skimp on the filling. Each bite is full of flavor and sings with a dunk in the house chili sauce. Try their meat skewers, where beef, pork, or shrimp are swathed in spices and grilled to perfection. Be sure to add a delicately marinated tea egg to any dish. A bite of the egg paired with their green onion bread is heavenly.

These dreamy Taiwanese pillows are made fresh daily and tend to sell out. Be sure to stock up early.

They make all items in-house (except the scones and cookies), and their menu brims with heavenly breakfast and brunch biscuit options. Bless your heart with their ‘Tis a Southern Thang, which dresses farm-fresh eggs in gooey melted cheese and crispy bacon. Order a hearty plate of Biscuits and Gravy and enjoy pillowy biscuits swimming in perfectly peppered rich country gravy. Tuck into the Fried Chicken Brunch Biscuit, where a fluffy biscuit hugs a juicy rosemary fried chicken patty snuggling against pickles, delicate butter lettuce, and creamy honey chipotle mayo. Whatever you choose, the items will fill your stomach but won’t empty your wallet, as all menu options are $12 or less.

Pair your biscuit with a cup of coffee from Seaview Biscuit Company’s coffee bar. They proudly serve Columbia River Coffee Roasters and offer a range of classic and specialty coffee options, such as Americanos, Breves, Cappuccinos, and Espressos.

With a rotating list of flavor-bending specials, including Smash Tacos and Razor Clam Chowder, you’re in for a treat with every visit.

Wogger’s Waffles

You haven’t lived until you’ve been to a waffle window!

One look at their menu, and you’ll see why guests were lining up to try one of the newest restaurants on Long Beach Peninsula.

Tender, buttery waffles are the foundation for an assortment of mouthwatering toppings. The fresh yeast batter is made from scratch and requires 24 hours before being cooked to golden perfection. Going Bananas combines Nutella, marshmallow cream, and bananas in a sumptuous tower. Try the Curds and Whey with Ladybugs, where lemon curd, crème fraiche, and blueberries romp on the plate. Feeling angelic? Get your wings when strawberries, white chocolate mousse, brownies, and whipped cream create the Heavenly Bliss.

Their savory waffles will turn everything you think you know about waffles on its head. Pigs Swimming in Gravy pairs house-favorite link sausages on a crispy waffle raft and smothers them in warm country gravy. Chicken Bits Chased with Some Heat takes a fried chicken thigh slathered in spicy honey butter and lays it gently on its waffle bed. The Wogger’s Benny marries house-made Hollandaise with a beautifully poached egg and sizzling ham, bacon, or sausage. Upgrade to smoked salmon, crab, or halibut when available.

For those living life off the leash, get your hands on one of their dogs. You can top their specialty hot dogs with caramelized onions, tomatoes, peppers, Irish cheddar, chili, or numerous flavored mustards.

Wogger’s is only open on select weekends, so follow their journey on their social channels for the most up-to-date hours.


What do you get when you combine flour, water, heritage, and love? If you’re lucky, you’ll get WTFrybread. A local mom-and-son duo runs the Indigenous, woman-owned food truck. Their bright green truck usually has a crowd, and their menu is bursting with traditional flavors with a twist.

Order a Buffalo Soldier and find yourself on the receiving end of almost a pound of organic grass-fed buffalo nestled between two soft and crispy frybreads. Stacked with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and homemade Campfire Sauce, it’s a meal that won’t leave you hungry. Get to know the Arlene, a frybread smothered in homemade chili, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, sour cream, and salsa. If you’re looking for something sweet, try the decadent Oreo Bites. Oreos are wrapped in the signature hand-pressed frybread dough, deep-fried, and drizzled with chocolate sauce. For those feeling a little extra, quench your thirst with an All That Glitters Lemonade. Fresh-squeezed lemonade gets a glow-up with fresh fruit, flavored syrup, and edible glitter.
