I love trying new food places. It makes me cry a little that the city/town I am currently living in is essentially a barren desert for good, diverse restaurants compared to SoCal. So over winter break, food was one of my main destinations. May I present to you, my food highlights:
When I visit the OC, meeting up with my undergraduate friend Sissi in LA has become a sort of tradition. And in every one of our meetings, there is always food involved. We would eat our way through LA, trying out the relatively newer restaurants and dessert places that have popped up while we were away in far, far lands learning the craft of medicine.
In between eating, we would try to pass time occasionally by sightseeing. This time, we visited the Getty Center (1200 Getty Center Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90049) on the West side of LA. Despite living in LA for four years as a UCLA undergraduate, I never had the chance to visit this place. Go figure!
I was really excited to see the gardens and architecture. And I was not disappointed.
It’s two days into the new year, 2016. I am currently back in West Virginia, after having spent the past two weeks in Southern California with friends and family. It was a wonderful two weeks.
