Good Food: Los Angeles

{Pepperoni & "Big Sur" pizzas}

While in LA training for my new job this week, my free time was limited to after work activities. For someone who loves to eat and shop, you'll hear no complaints from me because that is just what I did. I was lucky to catch up with two friends who moved out to LA two years ago and my cousin whom I haven't seen in six years. My friends introduced me to Pitfire Pizza in Culver City where we enjoyed delicious wood-fired pizza and seasonal sangria (ok, they had beer and I had sangria) while my cousin took me to Cha Cha Chicken in Santa Monica for incredible Jamaican cuisine and homemade ginger ale (he's not quite 21). It was a short trip, but by the pictures alone I am sure it's obvious that it was successful. Here's to hoping I get some good Mexican today in celebration of Cinco de Mayo!

{Chicken croquette appetizers}

{Homemade ginger ale with mint & orange} 

{Coconut fried chicken (incredible) & spicy Cuban fries} 

{Ropa vieja (even more incredible than the coconut fried chicken) & the best fried plantains I've had}
