LOQUI – 1 taco, 2 tacos, 3 tacos, 4

Tacos at LOQUI are incredibly satisfying. This may be due to the special scatch-made flour tortillas or the ingredients that make me feel like I’m back in Mexico. Cofounded and led by Mexican-born Ari Ampudia, LOQUI celebrates the connection between familial culture and Mexican food. LOQUI recreates the flavors and simplicity of a classic taqueria.  It is impossible to not eat one or two on your … Continue reading LOQUI – 1 taco, 2 tacos, 3 tacos, 4

Tito’s Tacos – now offering delivery for the first time in 60 years

For the first time in 60 years, Tito’s Tacos is offering delivery (permanently) and pickup, but no phone orders.

A rare treat when we haven’t eaten out in 3 months. A Los Angeles staple in … Continue reading Tito’s Tacos – now offering delivery for the first time in 60 years

The Tooheys Taste Tacos and Quaff Queso from QDOBA

Full disclosure- I was a huge QDOBA fan during my adolescent years. Fifteen years ago, if you visited their storefront in sleepy Westlake Village, you may very well have spied me chomping on chips with family and friends. They were efficiently doling out dishes with fresh and natural ingredients before “fast casual” become the foodie buzzword du jour. But the last time I had their … Continue reading The Tooheys Taste Tacos and Quaff Queso from QDOBA

Yalla Mediterranean Opens Up Shop in Culver City

We fell in love with Yalla Mediterranean before the fist bite because our Yalla girl, Tammy Hughes, was just too adorable when she brought by two massive trays to our LaLaScoop Sunday Bubbly #LAbubbly to help us celebrate our two-year anniversary.

Out of India: Sāmbār, Culver City’s new Restaurant

The last time I consistently ate Indian food was my stint living in England in 2004. London had a strip of the best Indian cuisine outside of India and I found myself eating Chicken Tikka Masala and Naan bread once a week in my home of Leicester to get over the British cuisine. Somehow moving back to DC, then coming to LA caused a slip … Continue reading Out of India: Sāmbār, Culver City’s new Restaurant
