Beyond Meat Burger Review: Hopefully You’ll Give It A Try Too

As a resident of North Los Angeles, it’s impossible to complain about a lack of access to great foods, specifically delicious burgers. There’s just one problem, the traditional meat option for burgers is beef. That’s all well and good until you start reading stuff on the internet that makes you worry if your love comes at a cost greater than the menu price.

LAX: Now Home to Kogi BBQ

Chef: Roy Choi

If you live in Los Angeles, you may have noticed the food scene upping its game over recent history. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone as the diverse demographics are conducive to not only a wide variety of culinary palettes, but one of the biggest perks perks of living in a melting pot are the fusions of complementary flavors that push the boundaries of dishes you thought couldn’t be made better.

I used to in Santa Monica and was lucky enough to benefit from the food truck trend. If you head over to 31st and Ocean Park, you’ll see a variety of trucks serving anything but run of the mill food offerings from gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches to curry cheese fries. If there was a man to thank for the explosion of trucks that shattered the notion of mediocre food from roach coaches, it’s Roy Choi, and what could be better than his delicious food having a home at the Los Angeles International Airport?

In more recent media, if you’ve seen (and drooled while watching) the movie Chef, you’ll see why the residency makes sense. Any airport can have a McDonald’s or Starbucks, but bringing Roy Choi’s famous Korean taco fusion to the masses sends a bold message that Los Angeles is more than a home for sports teams, insufferable traffic, earthquakes, and the entertainment industry.

So if you’re looking for a reason to get to the airport earlier or dread layovers, maybe your next traveling experience will be more memorable after a bite of Kogi BBQ.

Ben & Jerry’s Wants You To Try Their Schweddy Balls

Alec Baldwin is one of the finest actors of our times. His range is limitless and he’s managed to sustain a career that seems to only get better with age. In addition to a multitude of awards, Alec Baldwin has also become one of Saturday Night Live’s favorite guests. When fans think of Alec Baldwin, one skit certainly comes to mind: Schweddy Balls. The Schweddy Balls skit is to Alec Baldwin what Jeopardy is to Will Ferrell.

In this skit, Alec Baldwin plays Pete Schweddy, a guest on an NPR show, The Delicious Dish, where he talks about his signature holiday dish, Schweddy Balls. The skit, approximately 6 minutes, is a giant exercise in the use of sexual innuendos that would make Michael Scott wet his pants.

The ice cream is described by Ben & Jerry’s as “Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum and is loaded with fudge covered rum and milk chocolate malt balls”. Be sure to grab a pint while they’re around for a limited time!

The skit continues to hold mind share in fans of the show despite the fact it aired over 10 years ago. If you’re unfamiliar, be prepared to laugh. Do NOT attempt to watch this while drinking coffee or operating heavy machinery:
