In N Out (instagram)
You can not visit California without going to In N Out… Per Anthony Bourdain, this is America’s only reputable fast food burger joint… Cosign to that! Gotta luv the fresh made to order burgers. My status is to go off the menu with the animal style and protein burger. Though the cheese on fries gets cold quick. Bottom line, In N Out is a must visit.
Just touched down LAX, it’s about 4pm… What hip spot can we go to for some good eats? let’s get on that Venice cool and hit up Gjelina for some outdoor dining. The food is typically new american but since we came off hour, we got the Neapolitan pizza menu. We ordered one lamb sausage and one proscuitto. Pizzas were delicious, fresh ingredients, wood fire feel, and addictive. What a great spot to start drinking with crew.
I had the turkey sausage with fried egg on Brioche… Oh my…this experience was well enjoyed. Also try out Commissary next door for some solid coffee.
Umami Burger Hollywood (instagramed)
Let’s kick off the LA series, whaddup mami! All I have been hearing is how much Umami has the LA burger game in a choke hold. So I made it priority to hit it up and try this trending Truffle Glazed burger. Oh my…long and behold, this burger is the truth. It hurts on so many aspects of goodness and harmony….the beef, the combo of the truffle and truffle cheese, and the brioche like bun (people are still searching for its identification).
Then to add off the menu cheese tots, Singha beer, and hanging with my homies! This is a true memorable LA dining experience. The downside is they do not let you add bacon to this burger as my friend says “You are offending the chef”.
