You know when some things just work out? When we left L.A. to drive up to San Francisco we actually didn’t have much of a plan. We didn’t know where we were stopping or what we were eating… we didn’t even know where we were staying!

Like a lot of things during #LostandHungry, we were going on the fly and were recommended to spend our last night around L.A. just up the coast in Malibu… A suggestion we just couldn’t ignore! Jamie booked a place and off we headed, up a road with the most spectacular views.


We turned up at a house that was literally on the beach and complete with surf board (for Barry and Jamie) and a fully kitted out kitchen and BBQ grill. We had lucked out and just had to make the most of it, starting with a spot of surfing and football on the beach (yes, American football… we’re not very good!).

Afterwards it was time for dinner, and this is where you guys came in! We’re going to come clean here… we really felt like steak. And since we were on the beach, juicy shrimp too :) We *may* have left a few subtle hints in our tweets asking what to have for dinner. #sorrynotsorry.

You guys came through for us. Luckily quite a few people suggested that we have surf and turf. Great idea.


We grabbed some ingredients, Ben prepped while Mike cooked up a storm on the grill (yes, he really did). With a bit of teamwork we had a hell of a spread set up.

We’ve eaten at some fantastic places during #LostandHungry, but sometimes the best foodie moments are the ones you share at home with your mates! Cook up your own #LostandHungry meals with your friends and let us know how it goes. Thanks for getting involved (and Mike – great job with the food!)
