Comfort LA A Modern Soul Food Pop Up Opens In the Arts District

Los Angeles has a serious lack of late night places to eat if you exclude chains. If you get hunger pains too late a taco truck may be your only decent option. That is all changing with the Arts District recurring pop up Comfort LA. Opening tonight from 9pm to 3am in the back of Daily Dose Cafe.  They will be serving plates of their fried chicken with vegan greens, mac and cheese, and loaded cornbread. The thing that makes them stand out is their secret hot sauce/possible honey sauce. Its good on almost anything Southern. Follow them on Instagram to find out when they are open and if they have any specials. And make sure to try their ginger and sugar cane kool aid.

Changing Up Cheesesteaks: Philly Fusion Opens in La Mirada

  Change has come to the sleepy town of La Mirada. John Slater has brought the taste of South Philadelphia to this Orange County border town. Philly Fusion is a small store in a newly renovated strip mall. John runs the shop with his sons so its very much a family affair. But a nice shop and friendly employees only go so far. Its all about the food. Philly Fusion offers a classic cheesesteak made from thinly sliced ribeye (and not processed fake steak like some other guys) but also offers what makes their name fusion takes on a cheesesteak. One of the best ones is the BBQ cheese steak. It has BBQ sauce, and onion rings. The onion rings add a nice crunch and sweetness to the sandwich. Which the sauce gives it a little tang and complements the meat nicely. If you are in La Mirada this is definitely one of your best dining options
