Living in Northern California, Los Angeles is not new territory for me. Yet, I can’t wait to go back! Don’t get me wrong, the Bay Area is still far better than SoCal. But as a foodie, I do love trying new restaurants. And this time around, I found a few new favorites that might just be worth driving 6 hours on I-5 (and I hate I-5). I was sadly sick during this weekend so it was a struggle at times… but overall, it was a great way to spend the 4th of July weekend!
