Here are the other foods from my LA trip that I didn’t have enough for their own post but were so yummy I couldn’t leave out!
If you’re ever in the West Coast, I highly recommend you try In-N-Out. They have amazing food for a takeout burger joint. I started off with their In-N-Out Chocolate Milkshake. It’s so thick that I had to let it settle because I couldn’t suck it up initially! But it keeps it’s texture throughout.
You can’t go wrong with a Cheeseburger and Fries but they also have a secret menu that I’ll tackle next time I’m in LA :).
Trader Joe’s is a market I WISH we had here in Canada. It’s a cross between Whole Foods and No Frills; most things are healthy and don’t have preservatives but the prices aren’t through the roof and very affordable! We stopped by to get some breakfast items and I grabbed some snacks and such as well. (All yummy by the way!)
I always go to one of these when I’m in the US; Dylan’s Candy Bar. You’ll find people of all ages in here and there’s so many different variations and funky flavours as well. It’s also fun to just go around.
You can also mix and match since it’s all counted by weight. I got some chocolate gummy bears and rice crispies, chocolate raisins, mint chocolate chip malt balls, etc.
We passed by a Chinese restaurant that sold desserts so I picked up a Coconut Milk and Sticky Black Rice Pudding. It was so good and creamy, like a mousse.
I don’t remember the name but this is an amazing soon tofu restaurant where the tofu is organic and everything tastes so fresh. Everything is cheap too, $10+ depending on which one you get.
At Universal Studios theme park, we stopped to eat at the Jurrassic Cafe. I was craving the Turkey Leg Combo and it was HUGE! Here’s my cousin’s hand as a comparison. It was good but a bit salty halfway through.
While in LA, we took a road trip to Las Vegas. It is legal to drink while walking around and you can get your daiquiri fix at Fat Tuesday. We both got Bellini because there’s nothing better than that!
For dinner, we went to this artisan pizza place with a wood oven. I had the Verde with Mushrooms and it was great; the crust was soft and fluffy and there were plenty of mushrooms.
My cousin, who loves her vegetables, got the Vege. It has spinach, artichokes and cheese.
On the way back, we wanted something simple and who doesn’t love Popeye’s fried chicken? Their 2-PC Chicken Meal is just the right size.
On a trip to Catalina Island back in LA, we stopped by a famour ice cream parlour called Big Olaf’s. My got my go to flavour, Cookies and Cream. While the waffle cone was fresh, I would’ve liked there to be more cookie chunks.
While I had a layover in Chicago, I had to stop by Garrett’s Popcorn and grab some bags of their famous Chicago mix (caramel with cheddar popcorn mix). I don’t know if its because of the way it’s made but it’s so GOOD!
