If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or know me personally you know I love food, and maybe even more so, I love Bon Appetit magazine. When Bon Appetit arrives at my door I put it in a special place by my couch, ready for me when the weekend hits. I spend my Saturday or Sunday with coffee, reading the newest issue on my couch and could not be happier. Whenever there is a list of new restaurants, best restaurants, chefs…..basically any sort of list, I INSTANTLY look for an LA shoutout so I can bookmark it on Yelp and feed my LA pride. Much to my dismay my September issue did not arrive on my doorstep as expected and I was about as mad as anyone would be about something important or life changing, except this clearly was not, but obviously to me it was. I got the issue a little late which is why this post is just happening now but nonetheless, I was inspired to share. The big story in the September issue was “The Hot 10“, which is the magazine’s 10 hottest new restaurants across the country and guess who made the list? Thats right. LA. (did you have any doubt in your mind? I didn’t.)  Definitely an underdog, The Grand Central Market made #10 on the list. I recently went there for lunch and had Egg Slut (which was great) but this article had me itching to go back and do a mini food crawl up in that place. I loved the article so much I wanted to post it on here to share with everyone (even though I hate when Refinery 29 does that. At least there’s some backstory right?). Bottom line, if you live here, if you’re visiting here I am now a believer this is a must try. I want to do this for my birthday-weekend brunch in a few weeks and again when my friend comes out to visit from Taiwan at the end of the month. I’ll be sure to share my experience and I hop you can make it out there too!

 HERE is the full article.

Thanks Bon Appetit, for always having such amazing, inspiring and ever changing content. Your magazine is truly my happiness.

A Day of Gluttony

FOOD, FOOD AND MORE FOOD! Reflecting on this trip has made me realize that I’ve done nothing but use my eyes to look at the sites and use my teeth to devour various, tremendously fattening foods, but I’m totally ok with it. I love learning about other cultures and places that people live and I love to live as they do while I’m there so this trip has been a huge success in my book. Saturday consisted of eating breakfast and the cutest diner I’ve ever seen (Camellia Grill), thrift shopping, trying out the “best fried chicken in America” (Willie Mae’s Scotch House), riding on the street car, and sampling beignets and chicory coffee (Cafe Du Monde) even though I couldn’t fathom taking another bite of food. I feel like I’m on an episode of No Reservations or Bizarre Foods but really, that’s all I’ve ever wanted.
