There is a big Latino, especially Oaxacan(a region in Mexico famous for its moles, herbs, and cheese..etc) influence on 8th Street.You might have heard of the famous Guelaguetza Oaxacan Restaurant in Korea Town which is housed in a traditional Korean style building on Olympic Blvd.
That is Los Angeles K-Town in a nutshell where different cultures mingle and enrich each other. So, let's look at the 8th street's vibrant sidewalk scene with all types of people doing business, working, eating, and enjoying their lives!
We will check out Korean restaurants and hidden cafe, rice cake store; Oaxacan markets, eateries, Oaxacan/Mexican street food, drinks, desserts, and much much more! We shall explore, experiment, and have a lot of fun!
Bring cash since we will be eating mainly from the street food vendors but will end up at a cute hidden Korean cafe where we can get drinks and food.
We'll meet at Alchemist Coffee Project, get caffeined up, do intro, and start exploring!!
**Remember to wear comfortable clothing, walking shoes, and good sun protection! This street is very sunny when it's not raining. I even plan to bring a sunbrella! See you soon ;-)
PARKING: Sunday easier street parking. Park anywhere along our route so you can get back to your car from around 8th and Hobart street. Don't park in the parking lot for the coffee shop since it's only an hour parking.
