For those of you who are longtime readers of Friday for the Foodies, you will recall that last August I took a trip out west to spend a week in Los Angeles. The food from that trip was covered in the the postings F4tF: Los Angeles Adventure, Pt. 1 – The Neville Brothers @ Hollywood Bowl, F4tF: Los Angeles Adventure, Pt. 2 – The Santa Monica Farmer’s Market and F4tF: Los Angeles Adventure, Pt. 3. Well the time has come again for me to take a well deserved vacation and I have decided to make a return trip to L.A. once again.
Last August’s trip included visits to Pizzeria Mozza, Fatburger, The LA Food Trucks, The Griddle Cafe, Santa Monica Farmer’s Market, LA Farmer’s Market, Animal, In-N-Out Burger, Neptune’s Net, La Salsa and more.
This year’s trip promises to be even better with meals planned at Son of a Gun (new seafood place from the guys who own Animal), Comme Ça, Sushi Zo, Totoraku (not yet confirmed, but very close), Pizzeria Mozza (again) and a few surprises that my L.A. Chef friends say they have cooked up for me. If you want to keep up with my daily dining exploits on this trip, follow me on Twitter.
I told a friend the other day, the only way I survive eating my way through Los Angeles is by doing 5 mile hikes of Runyon Canyon every morning (first hike is tomorrow, April 2nd) followed by Yoga in the Park at Runyon Canyon Park (which is free btw). During last year’s trip, I emailed a non-L.A. based Chef friend daily about my eating exploits and told him about the canyon hikes. After a few days of dining updates, I got the following message : “I can understand the Hill Climbing better with each email!”
