I C Food N Eat It! The Go Metro Food Crawl

I am amazed with how easy it is to get from point A to point B using the Los Angeles Metro. After one month of buzzing around town using the Metro, it made sense to have a food crawl to the various ethnic communities throughout the Los Angeles area. Our Go Metro Food Crawl will take us to Thai Town for Noodle Soup, Chinatown for a dumplings and baos, Koreatown for Tofu Soup or BBQ, East Los Angeles for tacos or tamales, and Little Tokyo for coffee and dessert. For those of you who have attended my dining events on Pleasure Palate or LA Foodies in the past, please trust my knowledge of restaurants. For those of you who have not, well, you'll soon find out.

This unique Pleasure Palate event will involve a lot of time, walking, waiting, eating, and recovery from a food coma. So bring cash, purchase your $5 all day metro pass, and don't forget to bring your big appetite to join me in a unique way to dine around Los Angeles.

The Ground rules:

  • Update 12/3/12: Please note that this event covers a lot of different areas in Los Angeles. It also involves a lot of time to get from point A to point B  and a lot of walking too. We'll be touring around for hours and hours. With this said, I suggest that you check your personal schedule before your RSVP or perhaps change your RSVP to "No" if you are unable to walk for a long period of time or if the the amount of time allotted is too much for you.
  • I will be collecting $40 cash upfront before we depart to our first dining destination. We will use our group food money to order one or two dishes at each restaurant.
  • Bring a little extra cash to pay for your own beverages and a tote bag for shopping.
  • Expect family style dining, lots of fun, conversation, and plenty of urban exploration. Bring your cameras too.
  • Whether you eat or not, you are still responsible for paying for the meal.
  • There is no Refunds or Change if you leave this event early. So please plan your schedule to stay with the group for the entire event.
  • If you have food allergies or are a picky eater, don't bother to sign up for this event.
  • Please don't ask me how long this event will be, because I don't know either.
  • Please Make Note of Pleasure Palate Attendance Policies and our 3 Strikes Rule by clicking here before RSVP-ing to this Event. Cancelling your RSVP within 24 hours or not showing up at the event without contacting the Organizer ahead of time will result in a strike. 3 Strikes and You're Out!
  • Last but not least, a profile photo is required to attend this event.

Hope you can join me.

    Sally is right, it was up there with the best of the meetups! Thanks Sunny. Again next year? I'm going to explore some of the ELA spots in case we want to do an ELA Mexican metro crawl.

    One of my ALL TIME favorite meetups! Sunny, you really outdid yourself. And such a fun group, too. I'm about to upload pictures, just looking through them again I realized just how much ground we covered. What an incredibly fun and tasty day.

      Thanks Kiyo! Energizer Bunny? No, I think the Champurrado at Mr. Churro was piked with lots of sugar. LOL

    What a great time! So nice to explore the city by Metro and try some new places with new friends. Many thanks to Sunny for coordinating the five-course meal — from churros y champurrado at Mr. Churro on Olvera Street to bao and pastries in Chinatown, Tom Yum noodles at Pa-Ord in Thai Town, bossam and pancakes at Kobawoo House in Koreatown and all the way back to Little Tokyo for mochi ice cream and coffee at Mikawaya and Cafe Dulce. Looking forward to going back, and to trying out the East LA version of the crawl :)

    A big thank you to Sunny for organizing such a wonderful food crawl. Everything was totally yummy and a great way to just get out and explore new things. Can't wait to go to East LA!

      Thanks Mary. I'm happy that you had a great time exploring the restaurants with me. Yep, don't forget to save your appetite for the East LA food crawl. My mouth is watering from thinking about it. See you.

    Um, let's see. Just as I predicted, a Go Metro Food Crawl is possible. The I C Food N Eat It! The Go Metro Food Crawl was a lot of fun and I enjoyed the company of Foodies. In a nutshell, it was really a tour of all my favorite places to eat and the things that I enjoy eating there. It was just a coincidence that these places were accessible via the Metro. Lots of eating, but all worth every bite. First course: Churros and Champurrado at Mr. Churros at Olvera Street. Second course: Preserved Egg and Red Bean Pastry, Curry Pork Tart, and Baked Char Shiu Bao at Family Pastry in Chinatown. Third course: Tom Yum Noodle Soup (Medium Spicy) at Pa Ord Noodles in Thai Town. Fourth course: Bosaam and Seafood Pancakes at Kobawoo House in Koreatown. Fifth course: Mochi Ice Cream at Mikawaya in Little Tokyo Plaza to pay respect to the owner who recently passed away. Coffee, tea, Fruity Pebbles Doughnuts, Maple Macadamia Doughnuts, and Green Tea Roti Bun at Cafe Dulce in the Little Tokyo Plaza.

    Wow SuNny, Metro lost money with your group! LOL

      Foodies, Locals, and Tourist now know how easy it is to use the Metro to visit LA's ethnic communities to dine at really good restaurants.

      December 10, 2012

    • SuNnY

      Now if only the Metro was easily accessible to San Gabriel Valley and Montery Park, because there's a lot of really good dining there too.
