Smorgasburg LA / 11 month blog update

Hello ladies! How are you all doing? I’m over here just getting ready for my boys to be off and turn my days upside down, LOL! My oldest has his culmination today. He will officially be a high school kid. I’m so proud of him. We hit some bumps in the road this year , but he managed to get passed them and he will be off to 9th grade. Let me tell you all raising a teenager isn’t easy. I mean we were all teenagers once. But that doesn’t mean we know how to raise one. I’m learning along with him and I just pray his high school years are great!

Today I wanted to share our trip to Smorgasburg LA this past weekend. We had been wanting to try it for sometime now. And we finally planned it out and went. Of course my family had to go on Donut Day. If you don’t know about this Event. It takes place every Sunday in Downtown LA. They have an instagram and yelp. It’s basically over 60 food pop ups that are all pretty unique and great. Some have actual restaraunts and some are just trucks. We walked around to get a good look at what they had. It can be overwhelming, because there are so many options. So before I show you what we ate, I’m going to give you a few tips if you plan on going.

  1. Try to watch some You tube videos on Smorgasburg LA, we did this after and wished we had done it before to give us an idea of what to try.
  2. If you go with a few people try to get different things so you can try a little bit of everything.
  3. Take water
  4. They have a beer garden so if you want to drink don’t take the kids.
  5. GO hungry

My kids aren’t so adventurous with food yet so we kept it simple since we took them with us. We first had some delicious burritos from Burritos La Palma. They actually have a restaurant in El Monte highly recommend.

Next we tried a taco from Baohaus this was so delicious. The hubs and I tried this one with fried chicken. They also have a pork belly one we will try next time.

I had never had Mango sticky rice, Ya I know crazy. So it was a must to try. I liked it but I think I’ll stick to just mango and tajin. I’ll leave sweet rice to Arroz con leche.

David loves churros so he tried Churro Boss. You can get toppings and ice cream added to the delicious churros. He got cinnamon toast crunch. I thought they were delicious.

And you can’t go on Donut day without getting a donut. Breaker kept it OG and got a chocolate sprinkle from Donut friend. They had a lot of Donut options that day but the lines were a little long especially for the Side car doughnuts, that I wanted to try. I guess I’ll be taking a trip to Santa Monica to try!

 

I say check it out if you haven’t, it was cool and we will be back. I think minus the kids, LOL!

11 Month blog update! So I can’t tell you how proud I am. I’ve been consistent for 11 whole months. I won’t go into too much since I’m going to have my one year next month.  I want to leave more for that post. All I can say is I’m not giving it up. It’s not getting any easier, but I’m learning more and ready to put more and more into my blog. I feel this first year has been my learning experience. I’m ready to possibly make something more out of my blog. I have faith in myself and I’m proud. That’s all that matters.

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and great weekend. Till next post.

XO Lisa
