LA Bucket List
Before leaving Los Angeles after being there for a year and a half, I made a food/drink bucket list. This list included places I loved and also places I havent been to.
1. Toast Cafe
I lived less than 2 miles from Toast, and never bothered to come. This place has everything from Chilaquiles to avocado toast. It's very tasty, and reasonably priced. Weekend brunch can get very crowded, also parking is a little challenge.
2. Urth Caffe
I've been to Urth many times, for coffee, teas or the sweets but never for the food. I always thought there were too many people, especially the Melrose Ave location. But this time, I was determined to actually get a table and enjoy a nice meal. I went in thinking I would get an omelette but then saw the breakfast pizza and life was never the same. If you don't eat pork like I do, I suggest the Lox pizza, it was delicious and don't forget to get some tea!
Sure I've had Lemonde, but only from it being catered which isn't great. I came here as a last resort and I'm very thankful for that. All I can say, is this shit is bomb, the desserts as well.
Hands down my favorite neighborhood bar. This place has great vibes and $7 wines for happy hour. Their beef sliders and popcorn are great as well.
5. Sweet Rose Creamery
There wouldn't be a food list without Ice cream. Came here after hearing they had vegan Ice cream, and that was enough convincing for me. And Yes, it was delicious.
6. LA Burger and Beer Festival
I couldn't leave LA without ever attending a food festival. Shoutout to my homegirl who got us free tickets to this awesome event. We came hungry and left full and bloated as fuck. There were over 50 vendors ranging from Plan Check, to Terroni, and many more. And basically every brewery in LA was there. It was a very calm, and relaxing day.
7. Commissary at The Line Hotel
I'm sure you've seen the stunning photos of this greenhouse. It's as pretty as it looks in person, great food, a little over priced for the amount of food you get. But overall, it's awesome.
