A Taste of LA
My husband and I had a great time in LA! We spent our long weekend eating, drinking, site-seeing and relaxing which was a nice break from reality. Here are some of the delicious dishes we tried on our mini-vacation:
Our first stop, In-N-Out Burger! You have to stop here if you are on the west coast. Their burgers, fries and shakes are so good. Try ordering your fries "Animal Style" which means with cheese and chilli on top...Yum!
The next day, before heading out to do some LA site-seeing, we stopped at Pink's Hot Dogs. So many combos to choose from! Carter ordered the "Lord of the Rings Dog" and I went with a hot dog with cheese, fried onions and bacon. We couldn't not order the cheese fries and chilli too! Everything was so good...
Later that day, after a long day of tours and site-seeing, we enjoyed margaritas and Mexican food at El Coyote. The "Scratch" margaritas were freshly made and perfectly strong!
We ate at Blue Plate Oysterette in Santa Monica for our last night of vacation. Carter enjoyed a sampling of West Coast oysters while I tried the tuna crudo appetizer. Both were amazing but the highlight of the dinner was the lobster mac n cheese. It was so rich and delicious!
