Welcome to Part 2 of our West Coast Road Trip! Yesterday we went to Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland. Today we’re in San Francisco and Los Angeles. And we’re eating more delicious food, as always. Remember kids: the most important thing to do while traveling is to eat until you can barely move!
Now, before we begin, I’m sure some of you might be upset that we didn’t do that much in LA. It’s true. We tried a wide variety of foods in San Francisco. In LA, all we wanted was Mexican food trucks. And I couldn’t really see us doing the same food truck shots over and over again, so we just included the one. I’m sorry! We also spent a couple of meals at In & Out Burger, so we included that clip on our app (Android & iOS), so you can see more of that there if you’re interested.
And, for your food exploring pleasure, we put together a list of all the places we visited on camera and a few that we visited off camera that we especially loved. Also, none of these places knew we would be blogging about them. We just genuinely liked their food and wanted to share with you all! For the ones that we didn’t like we didn’t share their addresses here. So hopefully, if you’re making the same trip, you might want to check out the places we ate at!
Without further ado, here’s the list!

So that’s it for our road trip! I hope you liked the videos. We sacrificed our health to eat all of this, not for us, but for you! FOR YOU GUISE! Not for us, of course.
For those of you who came to our Meet Your Kimchi events, we’re working on that video now, and hope to have it up soon. We’re also putting together our picture post of some other fun memories and stories from our time in the US. If you want to check out the places we stayed at during our trip, here’s the list of Airbnbs we stayed in. Otherwise, here are some extra scenes that didn’t make the final cut. You’ll see Brian, our driver, give me a scolding for being gross. Yay!
