Last week a group of us checked out Manuel's Original El Tepeyac for their famous Burritos.
My roommate, his friend and I split a Manuel's Special (Chile Verde Pork). A nearly $20 creation meant to feed an entire family.
Eat the whole thing solo in under an hour (nearly impossible) and join their wall of fame.
The three of us just barely finished it. And it was amazing. Often giant "novelty" items like this lack flavor but this monster was a layered treat.
Maybe someday I'll try and eat it myself. Someday.

Lots to talk about but I feel pretty unmotivated.
Earlier this month I went to Vegas for some top-tier insanity. Just a taste from 'The Buffet' at Aria.
Also this month.
Pulled Pork Sandwich from Oinkster in Eagle Rock. Damn near perfect.
Checked out Juicy Burger for some custom Burger action. Incredibly decent.
Eastside Market and Deli. Good sandwiches but they close at 4pm, so you have to wake up early to enjoy it.
Back to Cole's. For the Beef French Dip. Awesome. All I'm gonna say.

Lady and I went to 8oz Burger Bar for the first time. We started with the Grilled Artichoke appetizer, which was fantastic, maybe the best bite of the whole meal.
Main course, I went with the Lamb Burger with a side of Baby Broccoli.
Becky had the classic 8oz Burger with Thick Cut Garlic Fries.
Overall, everything was pretty good. I like how 8oz has a full bar and all the sides and apps looked great but in terms of Burgers, Umami still has the edge.
It comes down to the Bun. These were too big and fluffy, each bite had so much Bread and you lose some flavor.
The Meat Party Continues

Lunch time. Picked up some goodness from Mendocino Farms downtown.
A Sandwich Study of Heat.
Turkey, Smoked Gouda, Avocado, Chili Aioli, Jalapeno Relish, Tomato, Romaine on Rustic White. Served with Chipotle Salsa and some Rotini Pasta Salad.
Boom goes the dynamite.
I've been on a real Sandwich kick lately. Can't wait to try Bay Cities Deli.
Just try and stop me

The meat party continues. I went to Hoagie Steak Out in Hollywood for a little taste of Philly. My buddy went with the 3 Pepper Scarface.
I opted for the Teriyaki Samurai (with Chicken add $1)
And an order of Cheese Fries to wash it all down.
These bad boys were awesome. Huge, lots of flavor and super satisfying. It's really the great Bread that makes the Steak sing. Most sandwiches start around $5.75.
If you are looking for a challenge try the Braveheart.
And in case you are wondering.
I ate it all. That Samurai didn't stand a chance.

Over the last few months I have been rethinking my views on meat. I've added some Poultry back into my diet and things are going good.
Last week I joined some friends in Korea Town for a Birthday Dinner. We met at Soot Bull Jeep, a Korean BBQ joint. My friend ordered for the table. The various cuts are cooked table-side over the charcoal grill.
It smelled and looked incredible.
So I dove in. My first taste of Beef in 10 years.
I don't know what to say. The food was great and now I have a taste for flesh. Watch out.
Welcome back to the Dark Side

Finally went to Xoia here in Echo Park. Did their Soup and Half Sandwich Lunch Special $6.99.
The Chicken Curry Banh Mi and Vegetarian Soup. Really good.
I don't understand all this complaining about Vietnam. Get over it. The food is tasty and here to stay. Why did I wait so long try this place?

Driving around looking for lunch. Stopped at Food Lab on Sunset for something new.
They have a killer list of Sandwiches. Breakfast too.
Garden Sandwich with Couscous Salad.
