Living and going to school in LA means that there are a lot of exciting things to see around you. You’ve got concerts, great beaches, the best weather, and most importantly: lots of ice cream.

Sometimes, I plan my school days around food. For example… “Okay, so, after I grab my warm breakfast from RTH Café, I’ll go to SAL for office hours until I finish the second homework question.

Usually, when people think about college life as an engineer, questions revolve around coursework, free time exploring the city, and student organizations for ways to get involved.

Oh boy, am I excited to be writing this blog. If there are three things in this world that I love, it’s food, eating, and restaurants.
