Eat in Los Angeles: Canter's


Matzo Ball Soup with a side of bagel chips

I visited Canter's, the historic Jewish delicatessen, bakery, and restaurant located on Fairfax, on a rainy December day.

To warm up from the cold, I ordered the Matzo Ball Soup with a side of bagel chips. The matzo ball was dense and soaked up the delicious chicken broth. The bagel chips were made with fresh bagels of all types like plain, pumpernickel, and poppy. It's no wonder Canter's is a classic.

If you've visited Canter's recently, what do you recommend trying?

Eat in Los Angeles: The Pie Hole (Pt. 2)


Earl Grey Tea pie


S'mores pie


Cappuccino

I stopped by The Pie Hole's new Hollywood location with my mom this December. Everything I remember about visiting their original location in the Arts District holds true for this larger space on Hollywood Boulevard.

I ordered my favorite, the Earl Grey Tea pie, while my mom had the S'mores pie. Mine was as good as before. The S'mores was pretty good too -- it had a nice graham cracker crust and heaps of chocolate and cream inside.

Eat in Los Angeles: Massis Kabob


Persian Koubideh Beef


Persian Koubideh Chicken

I visited Massis Kabob, a Persian restaurant found in the food court at Westfield Century City, twice during my two week respite in Los Angeles. I think that's saying something.

I tried the Persian Koubideh Beef, served with rice, pita bread, a roasted tomato, and side of tomato and cucumber salad, both times. The beef and rice are packed with flavor, while the vegetables provide a nice crunchy balance. I enjoyed placing a bed of rice, a piece of beef, and some salad inside of a pita, eating it all together. I also tried a bit of the Persian Koubideh Chicken, which is moist and delicious.

Eat in Culver City: Loqui


Pork on Flour Primo made with lettuce, cotija cheese, onion, cilantro, and salsa

I caught up with an old friend over tacos at Loqui, a trendy Mexican spot in Culver City, in late December.

I tried two types of their Primo tacos: the pork made with lettuce, cotija cheese, onion, cilantro, and salsa, and the chicken made with cheese, guacamole, onion, cilantro, and salsa. They were pretty good. They were much larger than the tacos that fit in your hand, so you might be good with just ordering two. They're made with fresh ingredients and they're pretty dang photogenic to boot.
