Los Angeles is an incredible city full of culture. In my opinion, Angelenos are the definition of West Coast "cool." They're trendy and they're always on the pulse of whatever is hip and fun in every part of life, from beauty treatments, to street style, to food. So when I moved out to this bustling city, I made it my own personal mission to try some of the most iconic foods in L.A. so I could learn how to be a true Angeleno. (It's safe to say it was a success.)
From towering poke bowls to delicious vegan bites, L.A. has no shortage of interesting — and of course, Instagrammable — food and restaurants. West Coast chefs from both gourmet restaurants and street stands truly create fun, memorable dining experiences for everyone. I've been to a street taco stand that makes its own corn tortillas from scratch, and I've also been to breakfast at Jean-Georges where the fruit plate was piled high with tropical delights.
Experiencing life as a foodie in L.A. is something truly special. Regardless of if you live there or you're just visiting, you should definitely make an effort to try all of these iconic foods. Your taste buds and tummy will seriously thank you.
