The Los Angeles experience is nothing short of fashion, celebrities, weather, beaches and of course food.
This past week, I took a trip to Los Angeles, CA to get the “L.A. Experience.” Going in I wanted to go on a “foodie” journey from the fancy 5 star restaurant to the mom and pop restaurant on the corner.
The biggest hit with tourists and celebrities is Pinks Hot Dog, located on the corner of La Brea and Melrose Ave.
I decided to try this highly praised hot dog stand that’s ranked number one in the U.S. according to Fox News.
I typically don’t eat beef so I had to start at the “beginners” level priced at $5.25. I ordered the mushroom mozzarella cheese hot dog.
I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of mushrooms, but then again it is a MUSHROOM hot dog.
I took a bite into this rather mountain topped beef stick with a bit of hesitation, I took a bite into my cheesy mushroom selection.
Here’s my reaction.
Pink’s is the ultimate Mom and Pop hot dog stand. It’s a Hollywood love story, starting with Paul & Betty Pin selling hot dogs from a cart on a neighborhood street corner at La Brea & Melrose in 1939.
Pinks has been in business for 75 years and is renowned for its delicious variety of hot dogs and hamburgers, huge portions and affordable prices.
