California Dreaming Part I: What I ate in LA

LA, California – My friends and I had a reunion in LA over the weekend. The City of Angels had perfect weather as usual, and the food was great as always (I miss being near the coast so much!). I didn’t get to capture every single thing, but here are some spots I’ve eaten around the city over the weekend!

Malibu Farm – 23000 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, 90265

I was too busy stuffing my face but we also had the coconut carrot cake (BOMB) and the Vegan Peach ice cream (THE BEST), so there’s that 🙂

Amazebowls – 300 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, 90013

Coconut Acai Bowls

These Coconut Acai Bowls from Amazebowls were not only super photogenic but also extremely tasty! I could actually have this every day.

Rock’N Fish – 120 Manhattan Beach Blvd, Manhattan Beach, 90266

Beer Battered Fish and Chips

This spot in front of Manhattan Beach gave generous portions of very fresh seafood! These fish and chips were better than the ones I had in the UK.

Love Coffee Bar – 1732 Ocean Park Blvd, Santa Monica, 90405

Kang Ho-Dong Baekjeong – 3465 W 6th St, Los Angeles, 90020

Can’t forget to have some good K-Town food in LA! Honestly pretty bummed that the chain will no longer come to Dallas, but this shall do. The 6 of us shared the large beef combo and we walked out pretty full. Another spot we ate in K-Town was Ham Ji Park, and I was so hungry that I didn’t even take a picture. I can always go back for their spareribs any day!

OOmasa – 100 Japanese Village Plaza Mall, Los Angeles, 90012

Chirashi + Tempura Udon

Dinosaur Coffee – 4334 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90029

Iced Cortado

Sul & Beans – 621 S Western Ave #208, Los Angeles, 90005

Strawberry + Green Tea

Pretty much faux Sulbing, if you know what I mean.

The Ivy – 113 N Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, 90048
