This week Gerren and Anthony go back to the Eat! Drink! Adventureland known as Grand Central Market. After experimenting with some new tenants last trip, they decided to go old school: experiencing the multi-generational ethnic melting pot that is the counter at China Café and getting knee-deep in some hog at Las Morelianas, home of the best carnitas in DTLA. So take a listen and then go get lost for a day at DTLA’s finest open-air culinary experience.
The spirit of New Orleans is a concept that is both elusive and intoxicating. Once you’ve visited the crescent city, you find yourself always craving its essence, but rarely, if ever, finding it outside the confines of Louisiana. DTLA’s Little Easy miraculously finds a way to give you a little piece of the French Quarter, while still providing the quality Eat! Drink! experience one expects from a Los Angeles watering hole. Come explore how this Historic Core hidden gem finds a way to bring you authentic (and delicious) Jambalaya and a Hurricane that’s better than anything you’ve had on Bourbon Street.
Little Easy is located at 216 W 5th St Los Angeles, CA 90013
This week, Gerren and Anthony tackle the one spirit they are completely unfamiliar with: the unique, one of a kind liquor of China—Baijiu. Unlike anything else you’ve ever sipped, this experience can only be had at one place on the entire west coast: Peking Tavern. The brainchild of two friends, Andrew Wong and Andrew Chiu, Peking Tavern aims to recreate a time, place and feeling the two friends shared during their time in Beijing in the 1990s. Inviting, elegant, and down right “homey,” this basement Tavern will blow your mind with its high quality ingredient focus for its “street food,” and the Baijiu cocktails know how to pack a punch. From the high octane spirits, to the delicious dumplings, all the way to spirit of friendship, Peking Tavern defines #FunDining.
