When I first started thinking about my trip to L.A. and planning it all out, a few thoughts ran through my head:
1) L.A. is home to some of my favorite food haunts. A few places which I have not enjoyed in a long while.
2) A three-day weekend affords enough time to visit quite a few of the places I have missed so much.
3) I know people in L.A. Some of these people like food as much as, if not more than, me.
These all swirled together to formulate my final thought: I am going to organize a Food Tour. The requirements were simple: you had to enjoy food to come and the food had to be good.
Here are the highlights.
Did I mention we spent a lot of time watching The Food Network, specifically the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate? One of the best things one of the hosts on the show had ever eaten was from a L.A. restaurant called bld (which stands for breakfast, lunch, dinner — so clever, they are!) They were bld’s blueberry ricotta pancakes. They were good, but not as good as I had hoped. The best part, though, was getting syrup in a mini log cabin (upper right corner).
