FOODIE ADVENTURES IN LOS ANGELES
Rose petal champagne brunch at Green Street Tavern in Pasadena. They take brunch essentials to whole other level, especially with the house-cured bacon that has the perfect crunch along with flavorful, roasted potatoes.
|My first DineLA meal of the year took place at The Gorbals in Downtown Los Angeles, and they're known for their unconventional use of ingredients. Although I wasn't entirely blown away, I loved their toffee bread pudding that is swimming in a pool of caramel as well as their creme of celery (with a gastro-molecular foam topping). All in all, it was fairly decent at $35 per person.|
|If you're looking for authentic paella in the LA area, consider going to La Paella. My absolute favorite is their squid ink paella. Beware though -- your teeth and lips will be stained! Definitely not something to attempt on a first date ;)|
|Morinoya, being only a few blocks away from my apartment, is one of those rare neighborhood gems you simply don't want to tell anyone else at the risk of being overcrowded. I shared this soymilk truffle hot pot with my sister and her girlfriend on a chilly, Friday night -- it was divine.|
|Snuck away on a work lunch with the always lovely and gorgeous HoneyNSilk at Sommunan. This hole-in-the-plaza will redefine what Korean cuisine truly is, starting with their Gamja Tang, which is a pork neck bone soup that has simmered in a hot, spicy broth. The combination of both lean and fatty pork meat will have you salivating!|
