La China Poblana

sandwich - video

If you’ve watched the BuzzFeed Sandwiches Around the World video, you know who had my favorite…



La China Poblana specializes in Cemitas – a Mexican sandwich from Puebla…

DSCN6664 …daily fresh bread, meat of your choice (I ordered Milaneza – fried steak), avocado, white and Oaxacan cheese, onion, jalapeño – I hope they’ll make a vegetarian version for Abe because I’m already planning my next pilgrimage to Boyle Heights.

Here’s the unedited clip of my initial reaction – as you can see, I couldn’t shut up.

Got to meet the incredible Awkwafina

…over breakfast at Go Get Em Tiger.  No coffee for me, but there were eggs, a biscuit, and a shot of salsa.


We’ll probably be going-and-getting-em less, now that we received some coffee grounds from Groundwork


…and a gorgeous Thermos from Camelbak to put it in.  This little mama is SPILL PROOF and I’m in love.   Almost cried the other day when I left it at The Bungalow.


Went to see Birdman with Sam and John; mind blowing, as were these onion rings from The Oinkster afterwards.  (Their chili was solid as well.)


Been doing a little cooking!  What do you know?  On Halloween night I made a big batch of BBQ Jackfruit and shoved it into Toasted Bavarian Pretzel Rolls with coleslaw.  Glorious.


New headshots!  Taken by the multi-talented Violeta Meyners.  You can see more of the pictures on my imdb page.

Have you heard of the minimalist fashion site un-fancy?  It’s been inspiring me to de-clutter, get rid of things we don’t use, upgrade items.  Simplify.  It feels good to change with the seasons.


Hot Red Bus

restaurant - sandwich

We discovered Hot Red Bus via the BuzzFeed Sandwiches Around the World Video, and I’m so glad we did!

DSCN6619 “LA’s first British Indian Chip Shop” has great fries, as I tasted in the “Chip Butty” seen in the video

…another sandwich I sampled (which didn’t make the final edit) was the “Full English” – as in a Full English Breakfast…


…Sausage, Bacon, Beans, Mushrooms, Onions, Tomato, Cheddar, and a Runny Egg.  Bloody marvelous.



Usually, when I’m in Alhambra I get Chinese Food; next time, I think I’ll stop by for some Fish n Chips.
