My brother is visiting me in L.A. for the first time next weekend, and as part of my campaign to get him to move here I'm making next Saturday as complete a food tour of L.A. as I can manage. What I'd like to do is go to as many places as possible, sampling as many kinds of cuisine as we can without breaking our wallets or busting our guts. Recommend your favorite L.A. snacks, please, especially from cool little ethnic spots. We're plenty adventurous. We'll be based in West Hollywood but of course will be driving all over the place.
To give you an idea of what I mean, here's the start of my list (these are some of my favorites and are non-negotiable, so I'm looking to add to them).:
A drumstick at Kyochon
A paleta at Paletería La Michoacana.
A mulita at La Taquiza
Hojaldra at La Flor de Yucatan
Al pastor taco from El Taurino
