Diners drive-ins and dive Los Angeles

Just when the world thinks it's finally figured out that LA is the perfect place for food, giant food trucks start popping up on the streets. This speaks to the demand for better food experiences that LA finally has access to.We recently launched the Diners and Drives In Dives Los Angeles, a guide to LA’s best and most authentic culinary experiences. But where did we get the inspiration and how did we keep an eye on the places we were recommending and when were we were recommending them? By becoming a member of an aging social media community and email newsletter.

GUY

Guy Fieri is unmistakeable: bleach-blonde, spiky hair coupled with his black goatee, his sunglasses flipped over the back of his head, and his chubby, yet lovable face (though he does suspiciously look like a hedgehog…). The host of the hit Food Network show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy Fieri gallivants around the country from restaurant to restaurant, pulling up in his red sports car in order to taste the best of the best. Although he never happens to stumble across horrible restaurants (shocking!), he manages to represent small, mom-and-pop shops who do produce excellent grub. Check out Guy’s pick hits for where to eat in the City of Angels.

Chef-Owner Eskender Aseged left quite the impression when he appeared on Guy’s Grocery Games — so much so that Guy made sure to check out Aseged’s Ethiopian joint Radio Africa & Kitchen when he was in San Francisco. Follow Guy’s lead and order the seared tuna. It’s topped with chermoula, a Moroccan cilantro and parsley sauce, and served over a bed of sauteed vegetables. “I don’t want this dish to end,” Guy exclaimed. (Source: www.foodnetwork.com).

LOS

MDK Noodles in Koreatown (and Anaheim) is trying to switch things up with a new shabu and kalguksu menu. The traditional Korean knife-cut noodle restaurant has a pretty massive back outdoor dining area that’s been successful for the longtime K-Town favorite, but the increasing popularity of hot pot and shabu-shabu in Los Angeles has led operator Stella Shin to try something never really done in LA. The AYCE menu costs $35.99 a person starting next Thursday and has a choice of chicken, anchovy, or veggie broth with traditional shabu vegetables, knife-cut noodles, selections of wagyu and prime meats, pork belly, and chicken.
