The Best Sausages in Los Angeles

10/10/2016

Joshua Lurie

Sausage is a time-tested tradition that takes off-cuts of meat and transforms them with spices and seasoning into encased flavor bombs. Oktoberfest first started in 1810 in Munich and has since become a hotbed for communal beer and sausage consumption. That legacy continues locally at places like Torrance’s Alpine Village. Thankfully, people don’t need to rely on that raucous stretch of time in September and October to get sausage drunk. Sausage traditions also extend far beyond Bavaria, around the globe.

Kennebec and Russet potatoes get the most love of any variety, but preparation, shape, and fryer oils vary wildly. In most cases, restaurants just thaw and cook frozen potatoes, and even those versions can still be good. Learn about 9 leading French fries in Los Angeles, many of which require extra efforts.

Set Sail for San Pedro's Best Bars & Breweries

08/30/2016

To call San Pedro overlooked is putting it mildly. Many recent transplants to Los Angeles don’t even know what to call it all (it’s pronounced 'Pee-dro’), let alone how to get there. That’s unfortunate, because this town is an unmined gem, gleaming humbly along the Pacific. The busiest port in the U.S. - by a significant margin - has seen its fair share of sailors and midshipmen for nearly a century now. That they have a hallowed history with hooch should surprise no one. Here you’ll find some of the city’s oldest dive bars, countless waterfront watering holes, multiple breweries, and a faithfully-recreated English-style pub. They even have a respectable wine bar.

When LA Fleet Week sets sail in September, San Pedro assumes center stage, welcoming sightseers from across the globe. But it’s also the perfect time for locals to check out what they’re missing, right in their own backyard. Drink your way through San Pedro at these outposts, representing the wide berth of options available in L.A.’s bustling port city.
