A list with some of my favorite places to eat or drink something.
Whenever I'm in Napa Valley I always grab some pastries from Thomas Keller's bakery. The almond croissants and the TKOs (Thomas Keller Oreos) are some of my favorite ones.
I've been here a couple of times and it never disappoints. Whether is a regular Cheeseburger or the American (their take on the Quarter Pounder), you'll make a great choice.
One of the first burger joints to appear in the city. You'll be good ordering any of their burgers, but my favorite here is the Donkey Donut — a double bacon cheeseburger on donuts.
Nice old school restaurant inside a hotel by Koreatown. You should order a Cassell's 1/4 lb with American cheese. Finishing with a slice of Pecan Pie would be ideal.
Mar del Plata is known for many reasons, including their medialunas: the Argentinian take on traditional French croissants. To me, Boston has the best ones in town.
As Argentinian as it can get: it's old, loud and there's soccer everywhere... even in the walls! A must-have if you're looking for Argentinian-style pizza.
This cool bar makes the Office Burger: it comes with caramelized onion, applewood bacon, gruyere, Maytag blue and arugula.
A very nice pub-like steakhouse located in Napa Valley. Got the G&G Burger after some cocktails and it was delicious. A really juicy high-end burger.
Came here a bunch of times after reading about it on George Motz's Hamburger America. The California Burger together with a Cookies & Cream Shake is a delicious combo.
100000000/10. These guys definitely know what they're doing. A crispy smashburger made of 100% ground short rib with cheese, pickles and their house sauce on a Martin's Potato Roll.
The Double-Double Animal Style is the best fast-food burger I've ever had (shares #1 spot with Shake Shack's ShackBurger). Sometimes I also like ordering it without lettuce or tomato and still tastes great.
There's not much to say here. These are the best empanadas you can have.
They've been selling one of the best Argentinian-style pizzas since the 1930s. Getting a slice of fugazzetta (mozzarella cheese and onions) changes your life.
If you're looking for solid BBQ on the Westside this is the place. I usually lean towards brisket, some mac and cheese and their buttermilk biscuits with a heavenly honey butter served alongside them.
A nice coffee shop with an old-school vibe. I really like their Spanish Latte.
Lots of croissants, coffee & pastries in this cute spot. I LOVED their berlinesa de mamey y pixtle.
This high-end, Tokyo-style neapolitan pizza is one of the best I've ever had. Getting a 'Diavola' would be my choice.
This colorful, hipster-friendly Vietnamese-Argentine restaurant is a cozy and casual – and affordable! – foodie haven in Retiro.
To be honest I've deeply enjoyed every single burger I had here. But if I had to choose one, the ShackBurger would be my favorite. I've also had the chance to try the exclusive Birria Shack at EEEEEATSCON and it was delicious.
You can think about it like In-N-Out but for tacos. This chain from Monterrey makes delicious tacos al pastor.
Eating by the counter on this old school diner is awesome. Order the Hickoryburger and get at least one slice of Banana Cream Pie because you won't regret it.
I've been a regular since it opened about five years ago. Fun fact: the owner is a really good friend of George Motz. So... getting an Oklahoma Fried Onion Burger is the best choice you can do here. +1 to their incredible fries.
The combination of beef + American cheese + Martin's Potato Rolls makes the perfect Cheeseburger. They're so little and cute that I'd eat 20 of them nonstop.
