I'm from Los Angeles and will be spending a week in Des Moines for work starting Wednesday. I will not have much access to a car and may be confined to walking or DART outside of work. I'll be staying at the Marriott Downtown and working out of the State Historical Building. I think there will be a group meal at Centro and I will try to get to a Culvers and maybe a Sonic while I am in town.
Is there anything I shouldn't Miss? I saw a post from earlier this year which gave me some ideas, but what I am looking for is food I won't find in LA. Also looking for thoughts on what I can bring back to share with friends.
