I’m really impressed by the artistry behind these show cards for David Choe’s upcoming exhibit in Beverly Hills. Choe, a superstar in the pop-art circuit, hasn’t had a solo show in Los Angeles for six long years. Continue reading →
Los Angeles Street Food Fest 2010. After heavy traffic, getting lucky with parking, and standing in a seemingly never-ending line I was finally inside! Set in the middle of downtown Los Angeles, the food fest was surrounded by tall buildings, and filled with thousands of hungry people. Food trucks were everywhere- a grilled cheese truck, pancake truck, french fry truck, ice cream sandwich truck, pastrami truck, and much more. However, in the midst of the land of trucks was Mama Koh’s Korean-style chicken wing booth. What made this particular food booth special was for one, it wasn’t a truck. Two, it was a family run operation, and lastly all proceeds made from selling these delicious wings were donated to relief efforts for Haiti. What a great way for a family to have some bonding time, experience LA and share culture while supporting a good cause. Mama Koh’s was also the first place to sell out at 2:45pm.
I didn’t have much time to try many other places considering the wait in lines were on average over an hour long. I was able to try some goodies from the Argentine truck Piaggio on Wheels and squeeze in some dessert from King Kone.
Overall, it was a great time surrounded by good company and tons of people wanting to experience this unique event that brought the joys of food and culture together.
