Why King Taco?

LA Mag takes taco truck originator King Taco to task for their middling meats and lack of innovation, calling the chain out on a number of fronts and citing Gustavo Arellano and Jonathan Gold as big-name Mexican food fans who somehow still back the brand.

Donut Farm's rocky start

Per their own admission, Donut Farm says they've taken some time to get up to speed since opening a few weeks ago, resulting in a slew of doughnut giveaways in those early days. Now they've got things coming up aces, meaning Silver Lake should be ready to enjoy vegan doughnuts for a while to come.

Your first look at an Evan Funke pizza

Pizza will be (at least in part) the name of the game at Felix on Abbot Kinney in Venice, the forthcoming Evan Funke restaurant we've all been waiting for. And, as if right on cue, here's an early first look at what sort of pizza you can expect.

Preview the beers at Brouwerij West

The San Pedro brewery space of Brouwerij West is now officially open, which means you can head down soon to enjoy some of their beers. To know just what you're getting into, check out this Beer and Baking blog post about the process, the brewmaster, and the Brouwerij beers.

The reviews are in

Early local reviews are starting to pour in for City of Gold, the Jonathan Gold documentary now playing locally. The LA Beat has already seen the film, calling it a film that "captures the rhythm and colors of Los Angeles."

Rock & Brews comes to LAX

It's beer and music time at LAX, with the arrival of KISS-backed chain Rock & Brews to Terminal 1. Add it to the list of ever-increasing awesomeness coming into (or already at) LA's biggest airport.
