L.A. TRAVEL DIARY: EATING OUT

I could not wrap up my L.A. Travel Diary without telling you about some great eats around the city! There's so much variety in California! My friend did a great job introducing me to many new places, so today I picked out a few ''the best of the best spots'' that you absolutely MUST eat at. Believe me, the foodie that he is and the always hungry girl that I am, you won't regret visiting those places ;)


BREAKFAST at Paper or Plastik Cafe


Let's start off with this note. It was the first time I came across such an idea, and I think it's brilliant. With all the social media frenzy and a feeling of staying updated every second of the day, sometimes we forget about the little things and those that are right in front of us. Sometimes it's good to put down your phone for a while and just enjoy your meal and conversation. I know, often it all looks too good not to take a picture (and I'm guilty of it too), but it's important to have boundaries. Props to Paper or Plastik Cafe for a nice reminder!


As far as food goes, Paper or Plastik Cafe offers the highest quality of food and an interesting menu. There were many things on the list that seemed very new to me. Since they serve everything fresh, I would recommend coming early, because they tend to run out of things. I had to put in three orders to finally get what they actually still had. Nevertheles, it was still amazing. I ended up with a turkey and avocado sandwich with a bacon JAM! BAM! Wild party in my mouth.

address: 5772 W Pico Blvd



LUNCH at 101 Coffee Shop


Next up is this Hollywood landmark (best known for its appearance in the Swingers movie and the TV show Entourage), which will take you back to the 1960's. 



Authentic retro style design, amazing service and even better food, those are all the reasons to vote in favor for this place. And when I say amazing food, of course I mean American staples - milkshakes, burgers and pies. I went with the waitress's suggestion, and got a Nut 'n' Honey Shake (made with vanilla ice cream, peanut butter and honey) - insert lots of crazy happy emojis. And of course a cheeseburger with frieeees.

address: 6145 Franklin Avenue, Hollywood



SWEET TREAT from Sprinkles Cupcakes


This one is the obvious choice when you're in L.A. Although the city is known for being a capital of donuts, you have to make a stop at Sprinkles and try their delicious treats. It's a must and an order!

address: 9635 South Santa Monica Boulevard
189 the Grove Drive
735 South Figueroa Street



DINNER at Craig's


If you're a fan of  any celebrities, you know paparazzi follow them everywhere, especially in Los Angeles. Craig's is known for mouth watering dishes, but also for being a celebrity hot spot. Practically any night you go there, you'll find somebody famous. I got to see Ozzy Osbourne with his wife Shanon, Cara Santana and the novelist Jackie Collins. Just pick a seat at the bar and you'll notice everybody coming in. As soon as the camera flashes go on, you'll know somebody important just entered the restaurant ;) Apart that fact, food is amazing and staff really friendly. The only picture I got to take is the one of a chocolate pizza. It's a special treat, which doesn't even exist in the menu, so you just have to ask for it. It's worth it!

address: 8826 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood



LATE NIGHT RUN to Carney's


By now you probably heard about L.A. staple fast food In 'n' Out, but I've got an alternative for you, which I believe is even better. For those late runs munchies -  head to Carney's! I don't know if it was the high after all the fun watching a stand up comedy at the Comedy Store nearby or a couple drinks I've had, but this meal was everything I needed at midnight! And how cool is it dining out on a train on Sunset Strip (few blocks from Chateau Marmont)?!  

address: 8351 Sunset Boulevard
