FOX 11's food and fun expert Mar Yvette searches the Los Angeles area for some of the best places to eat, drink, shop and have a great time. Featured guests then swarm our FOX Television Center parking lot every Thursday morning between 9am and 10am on Good Day LA, creating a big party as one jam-packed segment known as the Weekend Roundup!
Here's more information about the guests we featured:
Set along Downtown LA's exciting Restaurant Row at 7th and Grand, Mas Malo is all about East LA comfort food. Chef Robert Luna takes on the flavors of his childhood and gives them a gourmet twist using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. "These are the dishes I grew up on," says Luna. "Anyone growing up in the San Gabriel or San Diego valleys will recognize this unique style of cooking that draws on Mexican technique but is influenced by a distinct Chicano style that is the basis of a new kind of comfort food." The updated menu offers lots of plates intended to be mixed, paired, and shared with everything from Blasted Baby Chicken and Coke Carnitas to Mock Ground Beef & Pickle Tacos and Vegan Menudo (!!!). Set in a historic former 1920s jewelry store, the restaurant features a cool interior, soaring ceilings, an underground cantina and backroom tequila vault.
Celebrating its 12th year at the LA County Fair, Mariachi USA Fiesta is a 90-minute version of the ever-popular Mariachi USA show at the Hollywood Bowl. The multisensory show features the Mariachi USA All Starz including Mariachi Imperial de Mexico, the all-female Mariachi Corazon and Ballet Folklorico topped off by a huge sing-along fireworks finale celebrating Mexican Independence Day. The fun takes place on Sunday, September 16 at 7:30pm.
