Leo Beer. Chiang Mai, Thailand
There is nothing better on a hot muggy day in Thailand than a Leo beer. Cheap, refreshing and full flavored, this beer will soothe the pain from that Muay Thai fight you just lost.
Here is a tip so you don’t sound like a tourist. Singha beer is pronounced ”sing” the “ha” is silent.
Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog. Echo Park
2 A.M. You have been at Gold Room sucking back several of the $4 PBR and tequila specials. (more details on Gold Room in a forthcoming post) You catch your friend’s band at Lot 1 across the street and then finish off the night by dancing your beer and tequila soaked ass off at the Short Stop.
After last call you stumble to the street, hungry for something substantial to soak up all the cheap booze you have been pounding .
Fortunately you are in Echo Park, the land of the bacon wrapped hot dog. You can find a sweet little Mexican lady grilling up these hefty bundles of heartburn on virtually every corner. A mere $3 will score you a bacon wrapped dog, grilled onion, jalapeño , ketchup, mustard and mayo.
Tums not included.
