Rather than the usual "In Search Of" or "Trying to make dinner plans" or "where is the best" type of topics that float around, I thought I'd mix it up and post something that while isn't wholly unique to LA, but is certainly an element of life in Southern California:
I'm wondering if anyone's ever decided "Screw it, I'm just getting something to eat instead" rather than sitting in traffic. On surface streets, the temptation is more immediate, but on freeways, the alternatives are more far reaching.
Here are my traffic pit stops:
405/22 interchange - Brodard behind the 99c store.
101 near Encino - Chili My Soul
Robertson near Beverly Hills - Natalee Thai
Wilshire near Westwood - Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
405/University - Pho Bac Ky
