California, Los Angeles: 2014 West Coast Road Trip

Been having much wanderlust these past few days and thought I would go look at some old photos to reminisce good ol’ times. For a start, here are some snaps of California, Los Angeles, from our 2014 West Coast USA Trip.

One of our first meals was to try the much lauded In-N-Out Burger. It’s good but to be honest, nothing to shout about. 20140927_172718

The next day we had breakfast in the Farmers Market.

Our most memorable was this Mediterranean dish from Moishe’s.


Then we headed off to Santa Monica Beach to have a look-see.




After having Kogi for dinner (see previous post), we popped by Sweet Rose Creamery for some dessert.20140928_200355

Next morning, we headed to Downtown LA Grand Central Market for breakfast before driving off to Vegas.

Of course, we had to have THE Legendary EggSlut. Boy, was it pretty damn awesome. 20140929_09174620140929_092008 20140929_092051 20140929_092142

Tacos and more tacos from different Mexican joints with the market. We also dapao-ed a huge arse burrito for the road (not pictured).

Not forgetting this luscious, sinful, and hands-down-best-ever grilled cheese sandwich from DTLA Cheese, another shop in the market.



California, Los Angeles: Kogi Food Truck

I had this mapped out as a meal option but didn’t have high hopes that we would have the time to pop by. Kogi has apparently a fleet of five food trucks that go around LA serving up their delicious tacos and burritos. The one that looked closest to where we stayed still looked like quite a distance away to be honest.

In any case, things worked out and we found ourselves standing in line for some of that famous Kogi Mexican Fusion goodness. In fact, we were the last few people in line who got lucky. Staffers came out and had to turn away some people in the queue behind us. Phew! I strongly suggest you check out where they are going to park themselves and head down early if you don’t want to leave empty-handed.

We had the Short Rib Tacos, Kimchi Quesadillas, Blackjack quesadillas and the Spicy Pork Burrito. ALL of which were so flavourful – especially the Kimchi Quesadilla (who would have thought??).

I highly recommend this if you’re headed to LA. There’s absolutely nothing like this in all of sunny SG!
