Our Favorites from LA Weekly’s Plates

Chichen Itza's cochinita pibil tacos. So flavorful.

Elise: Some food festivals are so big you get full before you can try everything you want, and others are so meager they leave you unsatisfied. LA Weekly’s Plates event a week ago Sunday was just right. It was well-curated, with popular places like Huckleberry and hidden gems like Earlz Grillz. As for the ambiance, it just doesn’t get better than the Peterson Automotive Museum.It makes everything simultaneously fun and elegant.

Bob: Sometimes these festivals create serendipitous pairings by the way the booths are placed, and a favorite this year was the mixing wigged-out Asian stab at poutine from Roy Choi’s Chego, situated right next to Oneega, who offered delectable bits of spicy pork in a banana leaf. The two bites combined to make one spectacular dish. These guys should get together and jam, they’ve clearly got a hit on their hands.
