I enjoy healthy foods of all types, but tend to lean towards Asian foods. Anything with garlic is always good! Love Armenian garlic paste!
Metro Diner is my standard for California/continental cuisine. It's in Culver City connected with a TravelLodge. I call it Californian Cuisine with a Serbian/Oaxacan twist. How many times have I gone to a new place and sigh with disappointment, "I'd rather be eating at Metro Diner!" Other places are Tender Greens, Mandarin Noodle House and the Taco truck in Venice on Rose and 4th. So many good Korean restaurants in Koreatown but I don't know their names.
Grilled salmon with Dill. Of course I leave the skin on so it gets nice and crunchy!
Aside from eating food, I enjoy cooking, shopping farmer's markets, and learning about the functional nature of foods. You'll probably hear me quoting NPR during our dinner conversations.
