Summer Road Trip: Brooklyn Gets a Taste of L.A.
When I discovered I’d be taking a cross-country road trip this summer to California with my fiancé, I immediately started making plans. Naturally, food was a top priority.
I searched #losangelesfood on Instagram and found the Godsend that is Free Range. I typically use Yelp to find snazzy restaurants with great food, but my recent experience proved a simple Instagram hashtag search can provide awesome options.
Free Range is an independently owned and operated food service. The cool thing is, it’s a food truck, and you have to go to their Instagram page (@freerangela) to find where they park each day. With a rotating menu and different weekly specials, they’re sure to keep your mouth watering, like mine is now.
I could definitely go for another OG Wolf Special or Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich. Yeah, the meal may have cost us $38, but the combination of tempura-fried free range chicken, Fresno chili coleslaw, cheddar cheese, a fried egg, bacon, whole-grain honey mustard, honey and Sriracha on a toasted bun was totally worth it.
If you ever find yourself in L.A., check Free Range out. They're definitely #ChickenGawds.
Be well, Auburn.
