Food in LA | September Eats

For the month of September, we actually tried a lot of new food in LA. Our foodie friends were even in town one weekend, so we ate around the clock. We’re going to need this after all the food we’re going to be eating.

All the photos above were from my instagram and taken with an iPhone5.

I also modified my rating system. Instead of just having three categories, I decided to use the same 5 star rating system as yelp / goodreads. That way… they can match, and I don’t have to figure out whether a 2 or 4 stars round up or down. :D

Food in LA | September Eats:




  • Ink (West Hollywood) – We liked 2/3 of the dishes. The octopus was our fave.
  • Urth Caffe (Pasadena) – The earl grey boba is surprisingly good, but the pizza was just okay.
  • DK’s Donuts & Bakery (Santa Monica) – We liked their bacon maple (cr)onut best.
  • Semi Sweet Bakery (DTLA) – I still want to try their savory crullants.
  • Pho 999 (Van Nuys) – It’s not bad for being so close to us.
  • SK’s Donuts & Croissant (Mid-City West) – Get the blueberry donuts over the cronuts.
  • Harajuku Crepe (Beverly Hills) – I like how they have earl grey flavored crepes.
  • Tsujita LA Annex (West LA) – It’s good, but not as good as their sister store across the street.

This next month will be an interesting one because of the 100 days of less challenge. Since we can only eat out twice a week, we’re going to have to be more selective about where we go. And I’m going to have to teach myself how to cook everyday meals.

Where’s your absolute favorite place to eat in your hometown? Still adding to my food & travel list. :)

    I am so glad I found your blog! All of these LA food posts are really going to come in handy when I visit family in Cali… last time we went, we only ate Korean food. I love Korean food… just not every meal for 5 straight days. Plus, I know that LA has so much great food to offer.

      haha grass is greener on the other side for me! i wish we would go more into korea town.. but it’s always such a hassle with traffic and parking down there. maybe we can swap restaurant lists, so i know what’s good in k-town. :)

      OMG, it is SO delicious! I keep asking Jacob to take me back, and he’s not convinced as I am that it’s worth an hour drive for a donut. haha
