Sausages!! -Wurstküche, Los Angeles

Before I left to Los Angeles, I did some research on some of the unique restaurants that I might want to drop by.  Wurstküche was one of them and the other one was a macaron shop called "Lette" in Beverly Hills.  Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to Lette but I made it to Wurstküche.

"We're young; let's have fun with encased meat," says Joseph Pitruzzelli, the 27-year-old co-owner of Wurstkuche, downtown L.A.

Wurstküche is inspired by German sausages and it serves Belgian fries, 24 imported beers on tap and exotic grilled sausages.  It's located in downtown LA and they are opening one in Venice beach.

The entrance

I loved the red brick walls and it was like this inside as well...  The walls actually reminded me of restaurants in Crosstown! (i.e. Cafe Medina)

When I first walked in, the place seemed tiny with only 5 chairs.. a display of sausages, cashier counter and a couple of grills behind

Zuni Cafe -San Francisco

When we first arrived at San Francisco,  we were craving for Italian food so I searched up Italian places on Urbanspoon and Zuni's had one of the highest ratings.  We walked to Zuni's from our hotel which was in central part of downtown and we ended up in the sketchiest neighborhood in downtown San Francisco. It took us 15 minutes to get to Zuni Cafe.

Zuni's is a fancy restaurant and it reminded me of the restaurants in crosstown, Vancouver. 

Zuni Cafe is famous for their Chicken for two roasted in the brick oven ($48) but it takes approximately one hour to cook.

the menu at Zuni Cafe change every day inspired by seasonal ingredients incorporating Italian and French cuisine.
