Backyard Bite – “My Favorite Things”

Last year as I discovered my foodie footing, I found some amazing places right in my backyard. Those who know me well know that besides a passion for food, I also love to sing… a lot.

I’m a big believer that good food should make you burst out in song!

Here is a list of just some of my favorite places in LA that I discovered last year…

(to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music)

Cupcakes from Sprinkles and tacos from Yucas

Coffee from Bricks and Scones and Village Pizza

Deep dish from Hollywood Pies makes me sing

These are a few of my favorite things!

 

Cru has got Vegan there’s Forage and Local

Escuela Tacos they make me go loco

Lidia’s food truck has good rice and beans

These are a few of my favorite things!

 

Lindy and Grundy‘s sustainibly meaty

And, Mac and Cheeza’s deliciously cheesy

Shaky Alibi, Olio, Philippe‘s

These are a few of my favorite things!

 

When I’m hungry,

When I’m thirsty,

When I’m feeling starved

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don’t feel so bad!

 

Golden State’s beer floats and burgers are nommy

Robata Jinya, Orris and Umami

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don’t feel so bad.

 

There are of course, MANY amazing restaurants I regrettably couldn’t fit in the length of the song… Who do you think I missed? Tell me who you think I should have included, and maybe your suggestion will get added to next year’s recap!
