FOOD TOUR: LA 2016
One week in LA. How much food can I cram into my face hole? Let's see!
- 1.In-n-Out (Inglewood)Straight off the plane, as you do.
- 2.Kogi Taqueria (Palms)Ever since watching @Bourdain tour Koreatown with Roy Choi back in '13 I knew I had to check out his trucks. Fortunately, the day before arriving in LA he opened a storefront. This is honestly my new favorite restaurant. That tofu taco/Korean short-rib burrito combo had me moaning like a pornstar. I saw @Papi hanging out outside, but didn't wanna bug him. Had to go back a couple days later because I couldn't stop thinking about it. Yum.
- 3.In-n-Out (Marina Del Rey)Shit was cash, as always.
- 4.Roscoe's Chicken 'n' Waffles (Anaheim)The Obama's Special with mac 'n' cheese. Add a little bit of Rooster Sauce to the mix... GODDAMN!
- 5.Corner Bakery (Redondo Beach)Well rounded breakfast to get the day started.
- 6.Chibiscus (West Hollywood)Corn brûlée, vegan ramen, and strawberry lemonade. Oooooooh damn! The corn brûlée was odd - basically mayonnaise mixed with corn, topped with cheese, and torched.
- 7.In-n-Out (Torrance)Three times in four days? WTF is my problem? I'm glad these aren't in Sandpoint because I'd be there every day.
- 8.Fruit Stand (La Brea Tar Pits)The works with chili, salt, and lime juice! Very refreshing on a sunny day.
- 9.California Roll Factory (Beverly Hills)Pretty good for takeout in a strip mall. Philly roll with soy sauce is pretty hard to beat. Side-note: Why is everything in LA closed on Mondays?
- 10.Holy Cow BBQ (Culver City)I think a BBQ restaurant is only ever as good as their brisket, and by that measure Holy Cow is fucking fantastic! I had a 1/2 lb of brisket, a 1/2 lb of tri-tip, collard greens, bread, macaroni and cheese, and a lemonade. It was too much, but so worth it.
- 11.Cici's Cafe (Tarzana)Big, thick French toast slices. Pretty darn good, but not worth $12 without any sides.
- 12.Jinya Ramen Bar (Santa Monica)Perfect lunch. Couldn't finish it!
