Los Angeles has no shortage of food blogs- and it’s a particular haven for Mexican food bloggers. This city has some of the best Mexican cuisine in the United States, and that should come as no surprise. Approximately 36% of LA’s residents are of Mexican heritage! Food blogs are fantastic resources when you’re looking for deep dives into food specialties by foodies or connoisseurs. So, we wanted to share some of our favorite LA-based food blogs with you!
Okay, so they aren’t totally a food blog, but they do have some great food-focused programming! The Watcher channel is helmed by LA-based vloggers and former BuzzFeed sweethearts Shane Madej, Ryan Bergara, and Steven Lim. This media company publishes an amalgamation of their zany but always entertaining antics directly onto YouTube. They have a podcast as well! Watcher’s food-based TV-quality web shows include:
