Postcard from LA: Yoshinoya Takeover
I'm in LA for my best friend's wedding. I love LA, you know that? There's an energy here that doesn't quite exist in sleepy SF. Plus, this is the city where my family first landed in AMERICA. We lived in the cuttycuts of Koreatown with cockroaches. Nostalgique.
Driving around with my brother, I noticed something: Yoshinoya. Everywhere. The famous King of Beef Bowls (OG location in Tsukiji Market, holla) seemed as ubiquitous as any fast food chain. This one here, right near MacArthur Park, in front of the historic Westlake Theater, was clearly housed in a former Taco Bell.
