LA: What should I EAT?

Had a good run at Venice Beach, hiked up to the top of the Hollywood Sign, walked the walk of fame......  At the end of the day, as satisfactions was building up, I still felt that something went missing.... but, WHAT? And here it goes again, the most important question in the world: What to Eat?

LA is a city sooo diverse, it is sprawling with unique food, not just typical ethnic food but FUSION. And oh you should try the staple LA food too... wait what about those colourful desserts? California donuts! You shouldn't miss that, and... the Kimchi fried rice down the street! ..and this!...and that! Well, you see, I just can't make up my mind!

1. Try some Fusion

Fusion food is iconic in LA. So many fusion food cafe/restaurant out there, so little time to try them all... Whether you are thinking korean, chinese, japanese or mexican, LA never fails to deliver.

2. The Staple

Just ask yourself, how would you complete this sentence: When I think Tokyo, I think Sushi/ When I think Seoul, I think Kimchi/ When I think LA, I think__________.

My answer: Dodger dogs (I am pretty sure the "looney tunes" has "nothing" to do with that! )
