School is picking up (and finances are winding down), so I’ve decided to try and explore locally.
After a workout session, a couple of classmates and I decided to binge on some Mexican/Asian fusion food. Enter Belly … Continue reading “Tripping Locally: Belly”
When you make plans to catch up with me, we’re always going to eat somewhere. I’m not a coffee person. I can’t hold my liquor. I don’t do “just drinks.” I need to be fed.
A trip to L.A. occasionally includes meeting some old classmates, and this trip was no exception. This time we took a little foodie adventure on Sawtelle Blvd. in West L.A. Read on . . . Continue reading “Sawtelle Blvd. Dining”

I had planned on taking myself on some hikes around some of LA’s most iconic landmarks (including the Hollywood sign), but the recent storms in the SoCal area had put that on hold for me. I changed my direction and decided to scroll through Instagram and visit the sources of some of LA’s most popular social media food subjects. No sponsors, just hungry and hooked on Instagram. And bored. The boredom helped. First up — Mr. Holmes Bakehouse. Read on … Continue reading “L.A. Foodie: Mr. Holmes Bakehouse”
I know I don’t normally do food on this blog, but I really was intrigued by this restaurant.
It’s called City Tavern, and I first saw it on PBS. Continue reading “Old Timey Food at City Tavern”
