You are what you eat. Who are you L.A.?

Like-Go-Eat? | May 23, 200604:21 PM

The L.A. story as told by food combined with a certain ambiance (or lack of ambiance) like In-N-Out Burger -- L.A. Cool or just something different or special about the place, people and location that make the food taste better. What places do you think are a must for a travleer to be able to get to know who we are by eating what we eat, the way we eat, at the places we eat. LA Chow that that will probably not be found or served anyplace ealse? Maybe the Original's Tommys Breakfast sandwich? That is LA. What ealse? Primo's donuts (now 50 years old with the same owners)?
