Recollections of food experiences that have helped shape my love for homely, wholesome, honest food
Eating my way through L.A.
My first trip to America, junk food was always going to happen! Here are a few snaps from my recent trip to LA.
Oh how I loved the Mexican food in LA. Authentic or not, it was definitely so much better than what we get here in Sydney. My favourite was a standard chicken burrito with black bean, although each place has their own version of a burrito. I was also a massive fan of Chipotle!
This crepe cafe in Santa Monica was one of our favourite places to go for a late night drink, or a light dinner. The nutella crepe, and the Salmon Salad are both really delicious! http://www.cafecrepe.com/
These Chocolate peanut butter cups from trader joes’s are amazing! Trader Joe’s is a grocery store that is only in California.
In and Out is a fast food place that is only in California. Apparently, each employee has a share in the business, making them hard working staff who care for their workplace. The fries are freshly cut to order (I saw them grab a whole potato and slice it through a big press) and they have the best texture! It is best when the burger is ordered ‘animal style’ which is not offered on the menu, but is more of a ‘secret’ add on. Animal style is fried onions and melted cheese on top of the meat. The chips can also be ordered ‘animal style’ too!
