We’ll also get into why Kris wants people to come to his restaurant, order wine, and leave.
On the third episode from our LA series, we’re heading to Koreatown to drink up downtown LA on a michelada bus with the powerhouse siblings behind the James Beard-award winning Oaxacan restaurant, La Guelaguetza, to discuss how this restaurant has become the unofficial LA Oaxacan consulate, or the heartbeat of what many people refer to as “Oaxacalifornia.
On today’s episode, we’re eating veggie burgers at BurgerLords, a burger-walk up in LA’s Chinatown with the band YACHT. Besides making music together, Jona Bechtolt and Claire Evans are writers, artists, and the developers behind the popular app “5 Every Day,” a curated list of rad things to do in Los Angeles. Over burgers, I wanted to get YACHT’S impressions on why this town is one of the fastest growing cities for creative types, discuss some of the strange histories behind some of the city’s best restaurant spaces, how they go about curating the app, and why LA rewards curiosity.
