all the right ingredients: just add LA

DineLA week is the best week(s) of the year. It is the food LOVERS week. You can dine at some of the best eateries in Los Angeles for a set price, tasting foods you would normally skip over, and appreciating some risky new foods chefs prepare. DineLA is a chance to "eat" Los Angeles in a creative, affordable way.

However, I have found that going for the ordinary is usually the most disappointing. The two times I ate at "common" restaurants, the excitement I had was crushed by the lack of love in the food I was served. My advice to the LA diner... go for something you normally wouldn't. Try Moroccan food, or something Pan Asian. Yes, everyone love's a French bistro; but when you have the opportunity to go out and dine like a King for cheaper than usual, opting for the half roast chicken with potatoes is simply playing it safe. These DineLA weeks are a festival of food for a reason. Indulge yourself.

Out of the places I have dined (about 10), these have been my favorite: 

Angeli Caffe--> They mixed two of my favorite things to make an amazing Butternut Squash-Fontina Lasagne (which comes topped with Seared Mixed Mushrooms)

Coupa Cafe --> Traditional Venezuelan food taken to a whole new level. Try the Cachapas and Maracuchitos.... Mmmmm and don't forget Tres Leches cake

Sweet Love Hangover --> They have something called the The Pop Tart Tower: deep fried strawberry pop tarts layered with Vanilla Ice Cream. You also get to play board games at the table. Battleship anyone?
