Singer/Songwriter Meiko is this week’s guest on Food is the New Rock the weekly podcast I do with Chuck P from KCRW, where we talk to musicians about food and chefs about music. You can download or stream the podcast for free from iTunes, but we also had her share her favorite places to eat lunch in Los Angeles…
Favorite Kind of Food: Japanese
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Food that sucks
Favorite Place(s) to Eat Lunch: Hama Sushi and Daikokuya Ramen in Downtown LA.
The “goto” lunch place you eat at too often? Tomato Pie in Silverlake
Place You Heard of Thanks to Midtown Lunch: Hurry Curry of Tokyo
The farthest place you’ll drive for lunch on a normal day? The Boiling Crab in Alhambra, CA
Dream job location (anywhere in the world), purely for lunch purposes, and why? Japan for the amazing food and people, of course! If anybody knows the best places for sushi in Tokyo, let me know…
