another saturday, another adventure day

Oh wait, I'm blogging? Yeah, it's been pretty interesting around these parts and by interesting I mean busy. Between moving, weddings, traveling, etc. It's gotten pretty hectic and it's starting to slow down just a bit (I hope). 

Saturday's in this place are dedicated to "Adventure Day". Adventure Day is just that, an Adventure. We visit places we've never been or haven't been to in a long time. Depending on what our funds are looking like is how we decide what we're going to do. In the past we've taken adventures to Chinatown (i've lived in for 9 years and have never been - say whaaaa?) & Alvera Street (in search for the perfect cinco de mayo decorations) and trips to Solvang and Santa Barbara. Another key factor of making this day an adventure is we find places that we've never eaten at before. 

We live in a world of fast food and chain restaurants and if you aren't eating at one of them sometimes you find yourself at over priced places and all of these types of establishments lack "soul" to them. When I talk about "soul" I'm not talking about soul food, I'm talking about food that has a little "sumthin sumthin" about it. When I was a child I always enjoyed a good BBQ (& most southern foods). I'm always down to find real BBQ places but unfortch we don't live in the south and it's harder to find those types of places out here in LA. 

We decided to try out JNJ Burger Shack. There's a burger side and a side strictly dedicated to BBQ. It's a little shack and they have outdoor seating. It was hands down one of the best places I've eaten at recently. The key is to order two separate dishes, sides, etc. I ordered the chicken with potato salad and corn on the cob and the boyfriend ordered the ribs with yams baked beans. Ohmylanta it was heaven! The potato salad was whipped and delicious. The yams pretty much left me speechless. That's how much I enjoyed them. If you live anywhere near LA, I highly suggest paying JNJ Burger Shack a visit. You won't be disappointed!
