The only redeeming quality of Los Angeles for me is the food. To commemorate great friend & culinary buddy Allison Walsh’s escape from Los Angeles, we embarked on a dining campaign this weekend to hit as many local favorites as possible before she moves to Washington DC. In 36 hours, we experienced swanky fusion street food, pub-style dessert, home-style Korean, Middle Eastern ice cream, and a Chinese Dim Sum breakfast. Below is a list of our samplings:
Alibi Room (Kogi BBQ)
- Sweet Chili Chicken Quesadilla with Salsa Naranja
- Tofu and Citrus Salad with Taro & Lotus Root Chips
- Korean Spiced Fries
- Vegan Sesame Leaf Tacos with Asian Pear and Salsa Roja
- Smoked Salmon Lox Breakfast Burrito
- Sriracha Chocolate Candy Bar
Stout (Hollywood Burgers and Beer)
- Gourmet Bread Pudding
Western Doma Noodle (Korean)
- Dduk Book Gi (Spicy Chili Rice Cakes)
- Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap (Korean Fried Rice)
- Beef Bulgogi Hot Pot Stew
- Galbi-tang (Ox Short Rib Soup)
Mashti Malone (Exotic Ice Cream)
Most people do not eat breakfast in the morning, which is silly for three reasons:
- It’s important – we desperately need protein in the morning to kickstart our day.
- It’s inexpensive – a two egg and spinach salad meal could cost you as little as $0.32.
- It’s easy – limited gear, fast cooking times, light cleanup, no skills required.
Scrambled eggs are easiest of all. Whip eggs and other stuff together in a bowl, toss in a greased (with light butter or macadamia nut oil) skillet on medium-low temperature, cook until firm, and eat.
That said, scrambled eggs can get a little boring. I recommend a mix and match of any six of the following to mix it up to taste in the morning:
- Sliced lunch meat (my favorite is pastrami, but there’s other better ones for you)
- Chopped garlic (only a little)
- Tabasco Sauce
- Chili powder (if you want more of a kick)
- Garlic Salt
- Ground Pepper
- Splash of honey (if you want it to be a little sweeter)
- Splash of milk

What else do you put in your eggs in the morning?
