food break in Los Angeles

Another break from routine beauty blogginess..I flew down to Los Angeles to surprise someone and sort of failed at it. This person was not surprised *sigh* Oh well, it's the thought that counts, yes?
On saturday, 2/13 I managed wake up early enough to trek it to the LA Street Food Fest. Basically, it's all the food trucks you have to chase on Twitter all rolled up in to one big area.
There was an entrance fee of $5. Upon entering, I was given a drink ticket to redeem a full sized non-alcoholic beverage. The sun was beaming so I didn't even want to bother with alcoholic drinks.
the 1st truck I headed to: FrySmith for some foie gras fries
You can follow them here:
foie gras mousse fries w/ ginger braised leeks, chili cheese fries, rajas fries
dogzilla Japanese hot dogs (furikake dog was my fave!) follow 'em here:

shaved ice while waiting 2 hours for Ludo Bites. it really hit the spot! I was loving the lychee, Hawaiin Punch, pineapple combo I got :) follow here: 

the Ludo Bites fried chicken balls that took two hours of waiting! 
Thank you again Hansoul, you're a sweetheart!

Brunch @ Urth Caffe in downtown Los Angeles 
 the Spanish latte (very strong & good coffee)
my prosciutto panini

Valentine's Day aka capitalist Hallmark single awareness day
ankimo (monk fish liver) @ Hama Sushi , Little Tokyo Los Angeles

uni (sea urchin) @ Hama Sushi, Little Tokyo Los Angeles
I ate a bunch of other things like various nigiri, a spicy tuna handroll and salmon skin roll but those aren't worth mentioning or taking pictures of. Well let me rephrase that, the nigiri was good because the fish is extremely fresh at Sushi Hama but I was too hungry to take pictures! Hahaha 

Chúc mừng năm mới!


  1. Yum. Yum. Yum...that's all I can say. Now it's my turn to experience all that yummy Food Truck food when we head down to LA!

  2. Damn.. I don't know why I didn't even try to go to Food Fest -_-. SAD!

    Sorry about the NYX jumbo pencil. I haven't used those. Only their lipsticks and their eyeshadows. Good luck trying some of their other stuff!

  3. Man. Ankimo is the only kind of liver I'll ever eat. Looks so good!
