Hollywood Food Tour
This past weekend we went on a Hollywood Food Tour led by Six Taste Food Tours. Thanks to a good deal from Groupon, we enjoyed a full afternoon of walking and eating (mostly eating) for nearly 4 hours! Our group of 10 people met up at the Kodak Theater and embarked on our eating adventure. At each stop, a table was waiting for us and 2-3 dishes were brought out for us to share family-style. We visited a family-owned Italian place, a Mexican grill, a hot dog stand, a lounge, and a diner. My favorite dish was Chicharron de Queso (pictured above) from Loteria Grill. The ultimate cheese skirt, this griddle-toasted cheese was both chewy and crispy and tasted great accompanied by guacamole and salsa.
We had a light brunch in anticipation of all the food we'd be eating that afternoon, but we were still incredibly full by the end of the tour and skipped dinner entirely. It was lots of fun to try new places, hear food-related historical stories, and meet new friends who were equally passionate about eating. My only complaint is that I wish there was more walking between each stop...so that I'd be able to eat even more. :)
