Brisket salad by In my red Kitchen

Salad with shredded beef |

Eating out is something we do regularly in Los Angeles, basically every weekend. During the week, I always cook at home, exept on some Tuesday because we go eat at the food trucks in Santa Monica often. But overall, I always cook from Monday to Friday. Ok, actually Monday to Thursday because Friday is also weekend to me.
There are so many good restaurants and eateries here in LA, the weekend is too short to try them all! It’s that I love cooking so much, otherwise we would easily eat out every night.
LA is a meeting point of different cultures, each of them bringing their own food to town. The city has several areas: Little Osaka, Koreatown, Little Armenia, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, etc. And of course you can get the most amazing authentic food there!
