We went to a totally fun Ukrainian Dim Sum Pop-up tonight at What’s Up? Hot Dog! on Hastings near Nanaimo. Hosted by @whatsuphotdogvan, with food by Mike Scorgie (@scorgiesown), and some front-of-house assistance from Sarah from @communitypizzeria.

NOTE: this was a one-time-only pop-up!

After shaking off the emotional crap from the previous night, we headed out and did an epic day:
- Quan Ngon Nha Trang (San Gabriel)
- Fugetsu-do Sweet Shop (Little Tokyo)
- Far Bar (Little Tokyo)
- Angel City Brewery (Little Tokyo/DTLA)
- Wurstkuche (Little Tokyo/DTLA)
- Pie Hole (Little Tokyo/DTLA)
- Pizzanista (Arts District)

We could’ve easily added in Mexican food (of which there are a ton of regional styles available in LA) but surprisingly we didn’t have a drop of during our entire trip because we just couldn’t fit it in.

I was actually inspired by 33 Acres’ “Summer Sunday Br3w-BBQ” but I wanted to involve my family, so I decided to do a weenie roast of my own! Estimating two sausages per person, I needed to buy two dozen sausages. Of course, I only buy the very best for my family, so off to Oyama on Granville Island! 😉 Continue reading What Does $69 Worth of Sausages Taste Like? Oyama Sausage Co.
