Wet Meat

It took a very long time but I finally got around to eating at Philippes.

Philippes, for those who don't know, is a Los Angeles landmark. Their French Dip Roast Beef Sandwiches are legendary, from the tip of San Pedro to the double-wide trailers of Sun Valley.

The food was good. The price was better. I snagged a decent Lamb sandwich for only $6.75.

I might even go back to Philippes if it weren't for the awful location.

You see, the far eastern and northern sector of downtown Los Angeles has a distinctive urine-y smell. That's something you don't want to think about when you're eating wet meat on wet bread.

On a positive note however, I can scratch off another activity that makes living in Los Angeles so iconic.
