I’ve lived in LA for 12 years. I love this city. But finding a good meal can be tricky. LA loves hype. All big cities love hype. Navigating between the alleged foodie haunts, food pimp shacks and trucks can be a real waste of time.
I’ve tried all kinds of food recommendation apps. I’ve asked friends. I’ve dragged myself over to the crap pit that is Yelp. Maybe it’s my taste buds but most places recommended are complete crap. And then some places are completely overlooked because they aren’t hip enough.
I prefer food that tastes good and doesn’t cost a fortune. But if it does cost a fortune, then it better rock and the service should be excellent. Otherwise, I feel like a chump.
