Listen, I love the Bay Area. I was born and raised here — it’s home. But as much as it pains me to say it, I have to admit: the food in Los Angeles is better. Way better. The sushi, the fried chicken, the Iranian food, the Chinese food, the ramen, the dumplings, the paletas — I could go on and on. But I’ll let the photos do the talking instead. Nishan and I headed to LA for a quick weekend trip, which basically meant eating as much as gluttonously possible in between pretending to sightsee before we could check out the next dining spot.
