Beware: food porn ahead

Well friends, I am sad to say that my California trip has come to an end. Sophia and I indulged our foodie selves since I was there visiting. Asian food is my favorite because not only are the flavors on point, but it’s pretty cheap. If you’re paying over $8-10 for Asian dishes, you’re paying too much!

A lot of tacos were eaten as well! We went to “The Best Fish Taco in Ensenada” which won Tacos Wars in LA. It was pretty good, but I actually preferred the fish taco from this hole in the wall place near Huntington Beach. 

Ready to drool?

Los Angeles treated us well. There are many different areas of LA that have completely different vibes so I feel like it offers something for everyone. I didn’t think we would see any celebrities, but we did! We saw Adam Shankman who is a dancer and judge for So You Think You can Dance and also singer Gavin Degraw at a bar in Hollywood! Sophia did not recognize either, but I will admit that I am a bit of a fan girl when it comes to celebrities. Can I also mention that LA has a high population density of attractive people? 

I also loved the Farmers Market at The Grove. It reminded me of Pike Place Market in Seattle! Going to Griffith Observatory was one of my favorite things to do during our LA stay. Just look at that view : )

I can’t talk about California and not mention the traffic. I always heard it was bad, but man…..people are not exaggerating! It took a lot of patience for me and I was only a passenger the whole time!

Overall, I had a great time during my visit. It was good to get away for a bit. Now I am back to cold and snowy Ohio. Here’s a view of Columbus from the plane so people can be reminded of how pretty it can be.

Awaiting the next Kasual Life reunion!
