Food + New Friends = @DishCrawlLA #ktown

My first time dining with #DishCrawl and my opinion of this event is that it is a great way to meet new people without alcohol having to be the main focus.

Well, maybe for me it still was, but I kept my composure and actually had conversations with the other guests.

I met so many new friends last night, ones I hope to see again at the next event.

I was introduced to it by Mini the ambassador for #DishCrawl #Koreatown and although most of the guests that attended was expecting Korean food, they all seemed happy to have enjoyed other fantastic cuisines offered in #Ktown.

I met a group of girls who were celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday. Two guys that were writers/producers for a network show, some bloggers and USC grads.

It was a great mix of people and an amazing turnout.

The food offered at each restaurant was portioned well and with variety.

I wish my appetite wasn’t so small that I could eat a lot more, but I guess this is the price I pay for wanting to be skinny. 😛

I tasted everything, ate more of the items I liked more.

Hello Italian was my favorite and it was sad to see that they weren’t that busy. I feel like the location is hidden and not visible to the public enough for it to be busy. Kind of like Chynna Dim Sum.

They apparently have a dinner special. Two entrees, one appetizer and a free bottle of wine for…I’m sorry I forgot how much.

They also have buy one bottle, get one free. Just how I like it! 🙂


Hope you get to check out the next DishCrawl next time!



Our first stop… such a cute place! Something you’d see in a Korean drama series.



I love mini bottles of champagne.

Dinner time at Concerto~



Too bad I don’t have photos from #EscalaLA…

I couldn’t believe the transformation that it had gone through to make this place way more enjoyable! High ceilings and open floor plan with indoor/outdoor feel. Bohemien was a piece of crap and so not smart with utilizing their interior architectural design.

Good job to the Escala team for creating a great environment to want to hang out, eat, drink and be merry.

Now my only job is to go back and enjoy the food, for real this time.


I really enjoyed meeting new people and running into old friends. I even enjoyed overeating and overdrinking.

I can’t wait for the next one and I hope to throw an event like this in the future too!


Great job Mini!
