@killernoodle_tsujita draws you in with their flavorful, Szechuan spiced noodles. From noodles flavored with ground pork and green onion to these downtown style noodles flavored with sesame, they’ve got lots of spicy noodles to hit whatever you’re craving. If you’re not big on spicy food, don’t worry, you can customize your spice and numbing levels for each dish.

This molcajete reminded me of fajitas, but was so much better. @fondadonchon combined charbroiled steak, chicken and shrimp in a volcanic rock dish with cactus, cilantro and green onions in a special sauce, topped with oaxacan cheese. Served family style with fresh tortillas, rice and beans, this unique, flavorful dish is a must try.

@cheftimhollingsworth’s black cod is something special. The fish was cooked perfectly, the burnt allium had a truly distinct flavor that added depth to the dish, and the sea beans were salty, briny addition that made the whole dish taste like the coast. I would order this dish again in a heartbeat.

When temps start to drop, one of my favorite foods is a bowl of piping-hot soondubu.

I’ll just leave this here... • • • • I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again now: Houston’s Pasadena is one of my favorite restaurants. This time I went for their full rack of ribs that are fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious. 📸: Barbecue pork ribs with French fries and brussel sprouts #cravingLA

Still dreaming of this orecchiette from @felixlosangeles.

The thought of this pasta has me ready to book another reservation for next month. The pasta was aldente, and had just the right amount of spice.

Most important rule of KBBQ: Bring your appetite
• • • •
Never tried Korean barbecue? Get ready for round after round of delicious grilled meats, with lots of sides including kimchi, steamed egg and kimchi beef soup. One of my favorite meals to eat in LA.

There’s no better way to spend your birthday than sipping cocktails at California Adventure’s @lamplightlounge. Their Celtic Cure was a refreshing lifesaver in this heat 🙌

Look out Campbell’s. Side Chick is taking chicken noodle soup to a whole new level.
• • • •
I love the Hainan and roast chicken dishes at @sidechickla, but this week I decided to switch things up and try their HK chicken noodle soup. The bone broth is absolutely delicious and makes the whole dish. You’d never guess this is food you can find at the mall.

These crispy egg rolls are always a must when I get pho. Wrap them in a piece of lettuce, add some of the carrots, basil and noodles if you like, dip in the sauce and you’re good to go.👌🏼

I’ve been eating at Brewco for years and it never disappoints. With delicious food, a huge menu, and an extensive beer list it’s hard to go wrong.

PSA: The Crack Shack has landed in Los Angeles.

That’s right. Top Chef alum Richard Blais’ chicken restaurant has officially opened a location at @westfieldcenturycity. SD foodies will know all about this place. From crispy, juicy fried chicken to a chicken sandwich with pozole broth for dipping (you read that right), kimchi barbecue sauce and fries, I can’t imagine getting sick of their menu any time soon.

• • • •
Even in the middle of summer, I’ll crave this piping hot beef tofu soup. Soondubu arrives at your table boiling hot filled with pieces of tofu and meat in a broth typically flavored with gochujang (chili paste). Whether you eat it alone or with rice, it always hits the spot.

Spent the weekend down in San Diego and had to check out the one-and-only @philsbbq! This place is no joke. We’re talking 4.5 stars with over 12K reviews on Yelp. Trust me, these fall off the bone ribs are worth waiting in line.

When bread arrives glistening at your table, you know the rest of the meal has got to be good.

Finally made it to @felixlosangeles and wow it was worth the wait. We started off the meal with their sfincione, a Sicilian focaccia bread, which was topped with rosemary, sea salt and olive oil. The bread itself was slightly crispy on the outside and light and fluffy inside. Wish I had taken five of these to-go.

@pezcantina is a great spot to grab a drink or a bite (or both!) in downtown LA. I always order fresh chips and guacamole to go with one of their refreshing margaritas. The agua fresca margarita (made with pineapple juice) and the hibiscus berry margarita are my favorites!

One of my favorite ways to cool off is with a cup of soft serve from @matchamatchala. Aside from their delicious matcha flavor, they are always changing their second flavor to options including Hokkaido, black sesame or mango. Always a must when I’m at @westfieldsantaanita! 📸: Matcha and mango swirl soft serve with chocolate pocky #cravingLA

Time to talk about one of my favorite foods. 🥢
• • • •
When I’m craving shabu-shabu, nothing else does the trick. Diners cook veggies and thinly sliced pieces of meat in simmering broths, and typically eat them with steamed rice and sesame and ponzu sauces. Although traditional shabu-shabu uses kombu (kelp) broth, my favorite combo is thinly sliced beef cooked in sukiyaki broth. Make sure to cook udon noodles in the broth after, too!

What a perfect summertime dish☀️
• • • •
The Thai noodle salad at @hillstone_santamonica is one of my favorites. They combine cold noodles with tender pieces of marinated filet, tomatoes, mangos, avocado, peanuts, basil and mint to create this bright, flavorful dish. If you love Houstons’s in Pasadena, this dish might sound familiar. You can order it at their sister restaurant, Hillstone, in Santa Monica too!

Some snacks for the road from @85cbakerycafe in Azusa, CA
---
Glad I got some extra snacks for the airport since my flight back to Chicago was canceled due to weather and I ended up being rerouted and getting home 8 hours later than expected!

Even though there are better bakeries out there, I definitely wish we would have some 85c's here in Chicago just for the convenience (and for the sea salt coffees). Hope to come back home sometime soon!

Second dinner of two at @bestiadtla in Downtown Los Angeles
---
Came here right after dining at @rossoblula with @ctctctctctct and @andrewdle and Bestia is still as wonderful as ever.

The bone marrow continues to amaze even though it seems the dish has become tired and boring most everywhere else (and the gnocchetti is like crack); the cavatelli may still be my favorite dish at the restaurant; the gizzards were surpsiginly soft rather than toothsome; and the charcuterie board was really special (thanks for the rec, Clayton!). Finally the Shiro Manhattan was a perfect way to cap the night after a lot of great food.

What a way to end a culinary trip home.
