City of Gold

I’m a big fan of Jonathan Gold – the Pulitzer Prize winning food critic for the LA Times. I’ve certainly enjoyed some amazing food thanks to his knack for discovering culinary gems worth visiting. The downside is of course, that his reviews can really blow spots up, which, while presumably a great thing for business owners, can be frustrating for longtime clientele. Still, sharing is caring, as they say. This award-winning documentary City of Gold is all about the talented writer and it’s in theaters now.

Guisados

I don’t post about food much here – maybe because I’m vegetarian, and I’m not really a foodie. I usually like to keep it simple, and by simple, I mean pizza. Today I went to Guisados in Boyle Heights again with a friend and loved it as always. I gather their meaty offerings are well-worth writing about; the vegetarian ones are too. Never disappoints. Also, the Limon Aguas Frescas is amazing.
