One of my favorite happy hour places in LA is Black Market. They opened earlier this year and I cannot get enough of their delicious cocktails and food. My favorite drink is the punch for one but my friends enjoy the spicy red hot firing squad and strawberry jalapeño drinks.
Their food is delicious. Order the fried cauliflower, oysters, quail eggs, cheese plate, and best of all the deep fried fluffer-nutter. It tastes as good as it sounds.
Thai food is pretty much 100x better than the thai food in America. And not just thai food, all the food there in general seemed better (coke was more refreshing with 90% humidity!). My favorites included crispy fish, guava (my new favorite fruit!), lots of noodle dishes that I inhaled without photographing, dragon fruit, coconuts (especially the ones filled with a pina colada!), Tom Yum soup, papaya salad, crepe cake (exactly what it sounds like, layers and layers of crepes!), and I could go on forever. You wouldn’t believe how good Lay’s Sweet Basil chips are. I think a thai meal is a must for today.
