Food tour of Los Angeles

Chewing, chewing, chewing

Cheesy mac and rib melt, and brie melt, from the Grilled Cheese Truck.

Paulette macarons: earl gray tea, caramel, passionfruit, caribbean chocolate, violet cassis, and rose.

I have been eating so many amazing things since coming down to visit, and it's only been three days!  We've also had pastor burritos with avocado from Cactus, guava cream cheese pie at Cafe Tropical, little tastes of four unbelievable burgers from Umami Burger (plus some superb sides), and a trip down memory lane at Clifton's.  And we've still got plans for the rest of the week: Singaporean food, frozen yogurt, french dips, bacon donuts, more burgers, Brazilian beef served on swords, and a chili dog burrito concoction that will evoke thirteen years old.  Currently in the middle of a never-ending food coma combined with some serious nostalgia, but that may be a good thing.  I have a ridiculously long plane flight in my very near future, and sleeping off a week of delicious food may be just the way to spend it.


  1. Wow! You both always do such good food when you're in L.A. together. Good thing I'm not there because i'd put a terrible strain on my diet. Yum to all of it!
