Let’s Eat a Day in LA

Guys, I am so glad to be home sweet home. I spent the week in downtown Los Angeles, soaking in the sun and enjoying the city’s pulse, working. I did get a chance to sneak away for some of the city’s culinary wonders, devouring the best Smash Burger ever and a giant hunk of Key Lime Pie from Fat & Flour at Grand Central Market.

If you haven’t been – you must. The market It’s filled with local food stalls of all kinds. I could have eaten here every single day and never repeated a meal.

I also had a chance to check out some amazing restaurants. I started with Yangban, a hip Korean American restaurant with a Japanese flare. I had their Acorn Beignet with caramelized onion, gruyere, Benton’s ham, and Wings served with cucumber and Korean radish pickles, kimchi hot sauce, and black rice. I was stuffed and oh so satisfied.

As if that wasn’t enough, the surprise hit of the week was a casual Taiwanese restaurant in the South Park neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles called Pine & Crane. Again, amazing Korean food. I went with low expectations, but it was the best meal of the week. I clobbered these Dan Dan noodles – a lot like ramen noodles with a creamy peanut sauce and a bit of spice. It was divine.

But the real stars of the meal were these Chucky yet delicate beef rolls. The wrap was sturdy and flakey – never oily, and the beef with veg burst to life in your mouth. I am still dreaming about it as I write this. If you are in DTLA, you must try this spot. If you are ever in LA please bookmark these spots for a great meal with easy access if you are staying downtown.

Of course, I ducked into every interior, thrift, and antique store I could – even finding this fantastic lamp for the cabin for $75 bucks used. I can’t wait to roll it into the design. Speaking of the cabin. We are all set with the bathroom materials. We are just waiting for the tile, and we can get our contractor in with me to start the demo. I have been talking about it for ages, but I think we are close (like for real) this time!

One thing I love about my home in San Francisco is our backyard greenhouse. Don’t get me wrong, having the occasional faux plant now and then is great for adding greenery to a space, but it’s not the same as the real thing. Growing conditions for plants can absolutely be tough, especially in places like San Francisco. Fortunately, picking up a greenhouse is one of the easiest ways to maintain optimal growing conditions all year long. Check out my guide on how to find the best greenhouse or glasshouse for plants here!
