Lately I've been hitting up the Fruit vendor guys who are scattered throughout Echo Park. For a few bucks you can get a delicious mix of freshly cut fruit. I get Watermelon, Pineapple, and Cantaloupe/or Mango. They offer to add Salt and Chili Sauce but I always turn them down in favor of a straight bag.
The cart at the corner of Sunset and Echo Park Blvd is my recent go-to. Here small bags are $3 and large are $5. The guy is friendly and works fast. And if you tell him the secret phrase "the moon landing was faked" then he'll sell you weed for $10 a bag.
I love this neighborhood
