Urasawa, Los Angeles

Hairy crab with uni

Toro, radish, and caviar

Not much to say here other than this place 100% deserves all the hype and fuss. One of the best meals I've ever had.

Mexican Food, Los Angeles

This is a fat, cheesy carne asada sope from a weekend night market in Boyle Heights. Fortunately I brought a bottle of lactase pills. I also got to try some pozole and a chicharron (fried pork skin) gordita, both of which were pretty awesome. 

The vendors set up their carts in a parking lot and the atmosphere is mellow and fun. It's mostly Mexican food but one lady was selling pupusas. Highly recommended if you're ever in LA. I spent USD 8.50 and left totally stuffed.

Sorry for the crappy photo. The street lights are dim in East LA.
