BOTTEGA LOUIE, DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES

Girls night at Bottega Louie! Cutest place in downtown LA, and it totally feels like you are in New York City. The place was PACKED on a Saturday night, the line was out the door- there was almost a two hour wait. Luckily we didn’t have to wait that long, because I’m VIP and shit, lol kidding, but you can’t make reservations at this place you just got to know that you are going to wait. The food was great and the ambiance was super chic and cute. Loved! See below what we ordered…   BREAD They bring you bread and set it right on the table with no plates! lol SALAD: MODENA Buttered lettuce, candied walnuts, crumbled goat cheese, shallots, garden herbs & creamy balsamic vinagrette   PORTOBELLO FRIES I’ve never had anything like this! They are literally mushroom fries. It came with a delicious garlic aioli dip. I love mushrooms and french fries are my favorite food so it was a great combo for me lol. I recommend this if you are a …

FOOD TRUCK GALORE! LA FOOD TRUCK CHOWDOWN- DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES

Yesterday on June 11, 2011 from 11am-6pm, at the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown LA, over 50 of LA’s most renowned and iconic food trucks gathered for an event to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Tickets cost $10 to enter which went to a good cause, and there were two stages with live bands, carnival games and more food than I have ever seen in my life! My friends and I went to town with all the food trucks there. I had to try as much as I can for my blog. See what I do for my readers! I couldn’t move at the end I was so full lol, but it was fun and worth it. There was a big grass area where people chowed down at picnic tables, and had picnics on the grass while listening to the bands play with the skyline of Downtown LA in the background. It was a beautiful day. There were more than 50 food trucks there, only made it to a couple of them but I …

ARTSY DAY IN DOWNTOWN LA! SPITZ RESTAURANT, GEFFEN MOCA MUSEUM, & ANGEL CITY BREWERY & ART EXHIBIT

          I had a great day in Downtown LA recently. Went to the Geffen MOCA Museum, which is an “urban street art” exhibit, then went to lunch at Spitz, and went to Angel City Brewery for some freshly brewed beer.      The Geffen MOCA Museum was cool. All urban street art. It’s something cool to see if you are ever in the Downtown LA area and you are into art. It gives you a lot of history about how “tagging” became a popular form of art in big cities, and hundreds of pieces of art from famous street artists. Me in front of the Geffen MOCA in a window lol      After the MOCA, stopped by Spitz for some Doner Kebab sandwiches. I’ve heard about Spitz so when I walked by it, I wanted to give it a try. It has been written up in several LA Magazine’s and voted “LA’s Best Sandwich” by Los Angeles Magazine. Spitz is a Doner Kebab spot in the heart of Little Tokyo. I used to live in Berlin, Germany and …
