Our West Coast Road Trip, Part 2!

September 16, 2015


Share Post

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!

Vancouver, British Columbia

Jethro’s Fine Grub 3420 Dunbar St, Vancouver, BC V6S 2C2, Canada

Awesome ice cream shop we visited:
Earnest Ice Cream 3992 Fraser St, Vancouver, BC V5V 4E4, Canada

If you’re really into coffee, this place is freakin amazing for a totally custom cup:

Incredible middle eastern food! We had it after our fanmeet and it was freakin delicious with an incredibly nice owner:

Los Angeles, California

Oh man the mexican food! We visited two different food trucks, one on camera and one off. Both were freakin’ amazing!!!

Our on camera location with a constant giant lineup at nighttime:
El Chato Taco Truck 5300 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90019

Off camera location was opening in the afternoon and crazy yummy:
Leo’s Taco Truck 1515 S La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90019, United States

A healthy salad bar style chain with a lot of locations, but it was new and exiting for us! You can good the one closest to you if you’ve never been before. We went to the one on Abbot Kinney:
Lemonade 1661 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291, United States

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!

  1. Hi guise! If you ever get the chance to come to Portland again, there are SOOOO many other amazing food options for you other than the food carts. Granted, I love that little nook, full of deliciousness, but I also wanted to let you know that there are other amazing locations with great eats!

    On Hawthorne street there are so many awesome places to mow down:
    -For a vegan treat, check out Harlow – one of my favorite vegan restaurants and I’m not even Vegan!
    – Get your waffle fix at Waffle Window – from sweet to savory, delicious noms await you!
    -Chicken and Guns – a bad ass food cart that serves bombastic chicken delights. SOOO GROOOD!

    On Division Street:
    -Try out Pok Pok, Yummy Yummy Thai food, and they also have sodas with drinking vinegar. Weird? yes. Delicious, YAS!

    On SE Clinton Street:
    – Hungry for some Scandinavian food? Check out Broder. Delicious breakfast and lunch options from vegetarian to the typical omnivore. I recommend the Traditional Aebleskiver, Pytt I Panna, and Forlorade AGG (Lost Eggs) ^-^

    And one of my favorite artisan restaurants is called Raven & Rose. Melding American favorites with traditional Irish quizine, this by far is one of my favorite places to dine in Portland.

    I hope you guys get the chance to come back soon – I know you are moving to Japan right now, but if you do get the chance, Guise it would be so worth it. There’s so much more to Portland than the food carts!

  2. If you’re in San Francisco again, I recommend Polly Anne for ice cream. It’s a little out of the way, but they’ve been a staple of the Sunset district for decades. Lots of flavors available, close to 100 if memory serves me well. If you can’t pick one, you can spin the wheel. Then you have to choose either the top result or the very bottom. (I always just go with the coconut ice cream.)
    3138 Noriega St
    San Francisco, CA 94122

  3. I think somebody needs to make/buy Simon one of those beard guards that restaurant workers have to wear. maybe some crafty person could make you a nasty one. lol

    poor SooZee first Simon cheats to beat her at the underwear game,then Simon eats her Oreo and now making her carry in the luggage. :(

  4. Hi there :). First time commenting. Just wanted to say I really like the music on the videos. Did you guys create it or are you using a song from a know artist.

    • We found it from a list of songs that YouTube offers as background music :D

      And welcome to the comment section! I hope to see you around more often!

  5. Oh man, Blue Bottle is my favorite. I feel like you missed out on the best latte OF YOUR LIFE.

    Philz is alright for pour over, but there’s something so quaint about walking down an alley and getting a latte (no flavors, no sizes, all is just right) from what looks like someone’s warehouse.

    Next time, Gadget, next time. :)

    • You know, we wanted to go to Blue Bottle, but then people told us that Blue Bottle is out and Philz is in. We didn’t know the difference between the two, so we just trusted them.

  6. Can’t remember in which video you had (and loved) a kimchi quesadilla, but today I saw this on BuzzFeed and thought you might like it as well! http://www.buzzfeed.com/robertcrauder/kimchi-quesadillas#.siG93Ze2Dn

    • I am obsessed with kimchi quesadillas. Kimchi and mexican food are a match made in heaven. yuuummmfndlijgnag

  7. Both of these videos were amazing. I love your “regular” videos and they are the bread of my life, but these Super Pro Hi-Def MagicEdit videos, like these two and “What to Do in Busan” are really awesome to see once in a while.

    • Thank you for that. We like to switch it up sometimes, and we’re interested in what people like more :D
