And we’re off! (Plus food trucks recap)

Posted: April 23rd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Los Angeles, Meals | 9 Comments »


After a 6 day volcano-related delay, we are now off! We’re at LAX, waiting to board the 1:35 to New York.

We were a bit sick on our stay-cation, but made the best of it. We tried some of those new, fancy food trucks to see what all the “hub-bub” was about. They’ve popped up like mobile mushrooms throughout Los Angeles recently. Neither of us had taken part in this hot new trend, so we decided to seek a few out.

Some googling led us to the 5800 block of Wilshire where a bunch tend to congregate for the lunch hour. Two Korean BBQs, Haitian, and a truck dedicated to shrimp were among the options. Halbe had Kassama’s chicken brown stew for $7. Hearty and wholesome, it was our favorite thing. I had the “Bool Bowl” from Bool Korean BBQ. The beef was smokey and juicy, but I remembered too late that kimchi is not for me. $6.

Now we are sitting in terminal three at LAX and waiting to finally start our journey. Two days in the Big Apple then on an Aer Lingus flight to London. Take that, unpronouncable Icelandic volcano!

    Aaah, you guys look so happy! And you caught an earlier flight so you didn’t have to spend quite to long hanging out in LAX. You’re really on your way!!!

    Got a great picture of you guys on the airport shuttle. Sounds like you got on an earlier flight. Did subway work for you to get into NYC?

    We’ll put the picture in a scrapbook when we get back. You’re right — we flew standby on a flight that left 2 hours earlier. Riding with you guys was a blessing in disguise! Subway directions worked like a charm.

    So good to see you too! NYC was wonderful. We’re glad it’s the city that bid us farewell and the city that will welcome us home. See you in September, and hopefully Frank, too.

    I assume you’re safe and happy in London (or the countryside somewhere) by now. Can’t wait to hear updates! Enjoy!

    In the countryside for sure – outside a small down, Crediton, in Devon County. So far, food is tasty and I’m drinking lots of tea!
