Indigenous treats?

aliris | Jan 30, 2007 08:33 AM

There was a thread recently about bringing something "LA" to out-of-towners (SF I think), but I can't find the thread. Anyway, my question is a little different with apologies if it's been contemplated; can't find it in the archives.

*IS* there anything light-weight, interesting, tasty, and LA-ish to bring to out-of-towners? I think the lemons I haul along from the backyard are getting old, and are hardly light-weight besides (ours are 6"d minimum). Someone just mentioned "going to Surfas". but that's a tad inspecific. Besides, most of that stuff is interesting but not especially endemic. See's chocolates doesn't qualify because they're heavy, big and gross. My brilliant attempt at bringing Jin pastries ("cakes") was a complete disaster (posted elsewhere).

Anyone have some other suggestions? I'd appreciate especially locations on the westside for my imminent departure, but for the future, I'd also love to hear about portable, unique delicacies that are more far-flung too.

TIA hounds!
