Food is Happiness

Foodspotting LA's April Eatup

Posted on: April 30, 2012

Last week Foodspotting LA had the April Eatup at La Casita Mexicana. I had a great time with the company of foodies there along with a lot of dishes that came our way. The topics I heard was photography, technology, traveling, Google, smartphones, other dining services, Yahoo, and other delicious places to eat at. I would say that this was the best eatup I’ve been to yet.

Special shout out to LA Foodspotting ambassador, Aisha aka the Choosey Foodie for putting it all together. I really appreciate the work she puts into organizing and curating the places each month for us to meet up and eat at– eatup! The set menu prices, the meal, and the company all come together into a nice community of foodies here in Los Angeles. She has a blog post on this event too.

Chefs Jamie and Ramiro were super nice and greeted our group before, a little bit during, and talked with us after dinner. I did take some video throughout the evening. I’ll try to get around to editing it and posting it up here.

After dinner, the chefs had a little treat for us next door with some take home candy at La Tiendita Mexicana.

After that, I pulled some people into the bakery on the other side of La Casita Mexicana, so I could get some take home snacks. I couldn’t resist, it smelled good!
