I had the most incredible foodie experience at Grand Central Market in DTLA. I was overwhelmed with culture, hipsters, delicious food and an expanded belly at the end of it, but boy was it worth it! If you love different food options and tapas, then I highly suggest going to this place. I want to go back so that I can try out all of the restaurants I was not able to try out quite yet!
I started at Egg Slut (cute name right?) and had one of the most epic sandwiches I have ever had, the Gaucho. This concoction of delight includes seared wagyu tri-tip, chimichurri, red onions, seasoned arugula and it is topped with an over medium egg and nestled into a warm brioche bun. Is your mouth watering yet?
Next I went to La Tostadera, which is a Mexican cevicheria that offers traditional food with a twist. The fish ceviche I had was impeccable. It brought me back to being in Playa del Carmen, and those ceviche memories are my most favorite. Also the large chips they give to you are so tasty! I want to go back already!
I took a break and had some coffee at G & B coffee house for a delicious espresso and off I went to stuff my stomach at Berlin Currywurst. I had a chicken sausage with orange ginger curry sauce, level 2 heat and man I wish I had room to have it in a bun. I decided to not intake any more bread, so I just had them “paleo” style. They were so full of flavor I wanted to order another one! I was secretly trying to convince my boyfriend to order one, only because I wanted to steal some of his, but he knew what I was up to and quickly told me to carry on to our next spot.
I thought our last spot would be at the incredible Horsethief BBQ just to have mimosas and munch on some more delicious things, but after a mimosa or two we all got hungry again and ended up at the epic McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream. This ice cream is so creamy and delicious, it is the absolute must on any hot day. I have never tasted a creamier sorbet that was dairy free, so major kudos to their mixologists!
I am already looking forward to going back to this wonderful foodie hub and there are so many other spots that I have left to try. I did not have an opportunity to go to Kroft, but I have been to their location in Orange County and they are absolutely delicious!
As far as what to wear, this is a casual spot, so no need to get all uber fancy. I wore high waisted denim jeans, gladiator sandals, chambray shirt and a white crop top paired with my mom’s vintage hat from the 80’s.
