Claire and I will be heading to Los Angeles for Christmas and New Years! We’re looking forward to kicking it with some old friends and spending some quality time with the family. One week is hardly enough time to do everything and see everybody, but it’s better than nothing. I personally can’t wait to order half the menu @ Tony’s Mexican Grill. Good Mexican food is hard to come by in Seoul.

We’re also going to try to hit around a dozen cafes while we’re there to make sure we represent the burgeoning LA coffee scene on this site. Here’s a short list of my favorites we’re definitely going to visit:

LA MILL – Silverlake
Intelli – Venice and Silverlake
Caffe Luxxe – Santa Monica
Lot 44 – Downtown
Aroma Coffee & Tea – Studio City

And a few that I haven’t been to that we might check out:

Espresso Profeta – Westwood
Kean CoffeeOrange County
Neighborhood GrindsRedondo Beach
Spring for Coffee – Downtown

Am I missing anything worth visiting? If you think so, hit up the comments. This is the last time I’ll be in LA for quite some time and I want to make the most of it!
