Foodie In The U.S.A.

A huge part of traveling for me is trying out local food hot-spots and blend in, as opposed to touristic dining. My tastes range from budget meals to gourmet depending on the city and its definition of the latter. On my last month-long vacation to my beloved U.S.A. where I left my heart as well as my childhood, I collected snapshots of where I ate, and voila, my food journal!

Carney’s on Sunset Boulevard in California is an old train transformed into a diner.
