DELUCA’S ITALIAN DELI in Glendale, CA
The boyfriend and I were shopping around the Americana on Brand one afternoon and I really needed sustenance for all of the walking around, so we stumbled on this Italian deli smackdab in the middle of the shopping area and decided to give it a try! We each got a sandwich- he got a porchetta panini and I got a baguette with mortadella and fresh mozzarella. Add on a side of soup and a bottle of Pellegrino and our meal is complete! I really really liked my sandwich and thought it really hit the spot. Definitely gave me the energy I needed to continue walking and head onto the next activity!
WINSOME in Echo Park, Los Angeles
I’ve been here for brunch before and loved it so when my friend said he wanted to go here for a birthday lunch, I was more than happy to join! I grabbed myself a small coffee and we ordered several dishes to share. The food is so colorful, fresh, and super yummy that I can’t really describe everything, so I’m just going to keep it short and sweet and just tell you guys that you need to go try it for yourself!
They have great drinks both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. Since I don’t drink alcohol, I’ve had the horchata and coffee, both of which were delicious! I also recommend their potato chips and salmon rosti.
AMAZEBOWLS at Smorgasburg LA
This was my second time at Smorgasburg in DTLA and I think I may have eaten more this time around. I went with the family and everyone got different things to share. It was like Thanksgiving, street food style. A cornucopia of delicious items! Didn’t really get to take a picture of everything we ate except this beautifully made Acai bowl from Amazebowls. It was really refreshing and I love that they put it in a coconut and added little edible flowers on it.
