After reading this book, I think I need to go visit the food in Los Angeles! I thought this was a good book that covered info on all the food out there. I’m more concerned that there’s a place called Eggslut? Lol!!!! I’d check it out! Also, I’m not anywhere near vegan, but dang, I want those vegan avocado tacos!
My one con was the coconut-lime cocados (macaroons). I hate anything with coconut, so I may have dry heaved from looking at the pictures of those! Overall, this is a fun little cook book if you want to get a feel for the taste of Los Angeles!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
