Westwood's Best Dessert Spot Just Opened

Westwood is not a neighborhood you think of eating wise when it comes to Los Angeles. You may need to rethink that with New York's The Tuck Room  coming to Wilshire's iPic. 

Sherry Yard (of Food Network fame) is Tuck Room's Exe Chef. Being the best baker on Food Network means that this spot is a must try for desserts. 

Don't get me wrong. The steak here is cooked well and the chicken is great. 


Sherry is famous for a reason. She didn't even want attention to her simpler desserts like her macerated strawberries and vanilla ice cream. The fact is its one of the best sundaes I have ever had even in its simplicity. 

 What could be better than  the sundae? What about a red velvet pavlova with crispy vanilla meringue, red velvet raspberry chunk ice cream and whipped cream? 

I think the most amazing part is that these desserts don't cost 20 dollars.

LA County Fair Food Sneak Peek 2016

The LA County Fair is here tomorrow! Before you go check out some of the deep fried, baconed....and...more deep fried? Options you have for the fair this year!

As a official partner of the fair this year we got a sneak peek of some of the food offerings. 

The fried chicken inside a waffle on a stick is the sure to be big winner of this years fair. Made by fair food master Chicken Charlie's its sure to get people looking at you in envy while you walk the fairgrounds. 

The things I think you should look out for? The fried buffalo sauce is pretty good....but the deep fried s'mores covered in chocolate and bacon will be the biggest head turner. You may want to take an extra lap around the fair after eating that!

Trejo's Tacos Hits the Streets of Los Angeles.

You can't stop Danny Trejo. 
After opening the super successful Trejo Tacos in Mid City, Trejo now has a taco truck.

The Trejo's Tacos Truck will run over LA with a small rotating menu focused on a few tacos. Like everything on the menu at Trejo's Tacos they will have a healthy twist to them.

Want to find out where the truck will be next? Check out their IG for locations! They hot the streets of LA this week.

Koreatown's Next Hotspot? Horse's Mouth

Charlie Yusta is Chef's Chef. Before Horse's Mouth he started a national catering company that still does star studded events nightly. As the new owner of Koreatown's Horse's Mouth he is bringing the same level of dedication and passion to the former Iota Coffee space on Western.

So what is Horse's Mouth? Well if you ask Charlie he is excited about the raw bar/oysters. He is trying to bring in rare oysters people don't get to try very often. Do not expect one dollar oysters when he brings you a New Zealand oyster topped with pickled red onions. 

Strange enough Horse's Mouth is the kind of restaurant I expect some people to hate. The menu is very small. One dish the yellow curry with mussels will definitely clear out your nose (don't let Grandma order it) and its the only mussel dish I have ever actually liked. Yet  online reviews have been praising Horse's Head. 

Charlie tells me that he makes everything here from scratch down to the hot sauce paste they serve with the duck leg with Chinese pancakes (which is great but so is most everything.)

So yes. Try everything. Bring friends and share (if you can bring yourself to) . Get Charlie to tell you how they use freshly killed lobsters to make their lobster rolls instead of the mechanically process lobster meat most places use. 

Go before the crowds find it.

Check Out This Taco Spot Gem

"Discovering" taco stands seems to be a thing these days in LA.

With LA's abundance of illegal street taco spots, taquerias, and taco trucks an authentic taco is not hard to find these days. A great taco? That's a little harder.

 The Spot Car Wash is not a place I can recommend for anything car related but after six it becomes one of the neighborhoods hot spots.

Most likely you are going to be in line waiting for this little street taco spot. What drives people to come to this ugly stretch of Western in South Los Angeles? Well here they try a little harder.

The tortillas here are made to order. They are a little uneven and have little scorch marks on them.

They do their carne asada the right way. If you pay attention there's a small charcoal smoker they are dumping hardwood charcoal into, just for the beef.

So come check it out. Try a asada taco with a little of their housemade habanero salsa.

Don't like it? Well it's only 1.25.

Let us know on our channels what you think of this spot!
