When food is heavy for heavy food's sake, it needs to be strategic. It needs to be prepared in February, when it hasn't warmed up for like, six weeks and the big dirty snowbanks are given the ultimatum to pay rent or get out. And it obviously should involve bacon, because it's Wednesday.

      People are sometimes surprised that I miss food things from LA besides In-N-Out and amazing Mexican food (though I of course miss those things). I miss getting sushi in Little Tokyo.
