There is great street food to be consumed in Mexico City. One example is this blue corn quesadilla with grilled scallions.
I think it cost me 15 pesos, which is less than a dollar. The green salsa I added to it was fiery.
One woman cooked the quesadillas and another made tortillas.
Saint Anthony Bourdain would approve.
I went to the Los Angeles Food Bowl Night Market the weekend before last.
I had read about David Chang’s food for years. So when I heard that Momofuku would be opening a stall there I was very excited.
The food festival was located in Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles.
I had to wait 20 minutes to be served.
The cook cutting the meat gave me a free sample of brisket. The meat was salty, savory, fatty and tender.
I loved it.
I ordered both the spicy pork wrap and the salted brisket.
The flatbread was chewy and absorbed the oil well. There was some sort of a pickled vegetable in the salted brisket wrap and parsley, I think.
The spicy pork wrap wasn’t too spicy, but it was likewise delicious. There was a spicy sauce and cilantro present.
Even after eating both, I had some room left so I bought a sea urchin.
I went last Saturday with my brother but it apparently had ended. 😭
After walking back from Runyon Canyon some time last month I bought a hot dog from one of the food trucks parked on Hollywood Boulevard.
I asked for the spiciest salsa and it was nice and hot. A long time ago when I was in college I discovered that hot dogs were the laziest way to eat protein. For months I ate microwaved hot dogs with generic brand macaroni and cheese. Later I ate the notorious hot dogs sold at the Eighr Ball Saloon in Ann Arbor. Because of that it took decades to again desire hot dogs.
This one was pretty good. As it was grilled, it had nice char and was juicy, too.
