LA's Favorite Snacks You Can Make at Home

April 27, 2020
When you think of LA, you probably just think of Hollywood, show business, Beverly Hills, 'the city of dreams,' and the like. You're unlikely to think of food, aren't you? Well, that's not surprising. Especially since a lot of the people here are mostly fit and healthy. You'd probably think that they don't eat that much at all. But you're wrong. Though it's not a food capital like Paris or London, Los Angeles is just as good as a have for foodies as those places. It boasts its own signature array of favourite snacks, some of which you can actually make at home for you to enjoy!

Breakfast Burrito

Since California is near Mexico, expect some of the more famous dishes from the Latin American country to be beloved in the "City of Angels." One of them is the burrito. This compact snack of rice, beans, and your choice of meat fits perfectly well with the bustling on-the-go lifestyle in this city. And this is probably why a lot of locals have made it a breakfast mainstay. Forget the cereals and pancakes. In a city like LA, you don't have time to eat all of that. Better to just grab a breakfast burrito and munch on it as you drive or commute to work.

BBQ Pork Belly Sandwich

Make no mistake, however, that just because people from LA tend to gravitate towards exotic dishes doesn't mean they don't like an old-fashioned American snack every once and a while. The people here, even with their fancy diets and high-style cleansing juices, still enjoy a good barbecue every now and then. And one of their most favourite snacks is the BBQ pork belly sandwich. A handful of top-notch restaurants offer this scrumptious dish, as will some street vendors too. What's not to love about it? It's filled with meaty goodness all compact into one hearty delicious sandwich!

Hickory Burger

In West LA stands a culinary institution that's practically synonymous with the city, Apple Pan. Having opened in 1947, this monument to classic American fast food has served locals and visitors alike these past few decades. And one of their signature dishes is the Hickory burger. It's a smoky and rich take on the classic American snack, cooked just right and served with secret sauce. Although you probably won't be able to accurately replicate this iconic sandwich at home, there's no harm in trying! Still, the best thing is from the restaurant itself. But if you live in another state, or another country for that matter, making one yourself will do!

Mediterranean Gem Salad

Now for something healthier! You can't talk about food from LA and not include a salad! It's practically the city's official snack. From high-profile celebrities to housewives who want to be celebrities, a salad is often their go-to lunch, dinner, and probably midnight snack too. But of course, any old salad won't cut it for these high-class haute cuisine connoisseurs, that's why they often go for the Mediterranean Gem salad. Made with fresh vegetables, some nuts, and other delicious surprises, it's a healthy stomach-filling option that will ensure that you won't grow an inch of your waistline after you're through with it.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Okay, you may be thinking, "Chicken noodle soup is so common! Why is this on this list?" Well, when it comes to healthy eating, let's face it, Los Angeles practically has every other major city beat. Say for a couple of Asian destinations, probably, but in the Western hemisphere, no other city eats as healthily as LA. And so the chicken noodle soup from here deserves a mention! A rich a flavourful dish, you'll want to have it even when you're not sick. And the best part is, you or your mom probably already know the recipe by heart!

Strawberry Doughnuts

Time for dessert! Yes, people in LA actually still eat dessert! Not everyone can be fitness freaks here, you know! Anyways, so what's for dessert in LA? One classic that you've probably seen on TV quite a lot is the strawberry doughnut. The city makes it in two ways. There's the standard pink-frosted kind that Homer Simpson is obsessed about. Then there's the scrumptious flavour-filled kind that actually makes use of real strawberries. And don't worry, one is not better than the other. It only depends on your cravings on which one to make at home!

Ice Cream Sandwich

As a city known for its sunshine, it's no surprise tha tone of the most popular snacks in LA has something to do with ice cream. In fact, the sweet ice-cold dessert is what many people here devour for their cheat meals or reward treats. But, of course, LA doesn't do it the common way. Here, forget the cone or the sundae glass, it's all about the ice cream sandwich! Think of it: a nice scoop of ice cream between two delicious cookies. It's heaven in every bite! Just make sure your teeth are strong enough to handle the cold!
