Short Order: Classic Cuisine in Los Angeles

April 23, 2014 9:02 am

Head to Short Order for tastes truly fresh and local to your area. Short Order serves fast-casual comfort food from organic, local, and artisanal ingredients. It’s all about showcasing simplicity here, and Short Order demonstrates what a few fresh ingredients can accomplish while recreating the classics: milk shakes, burgers, melts, fries, and salads.

All sides and bakery items are made from scratch. Starters and sides include old school fries and short order spuds—skin-on russet potatoes baked, torn, fried, and liberally sprinkled with olive oil and sea salt. Get either tossed in truffle oil, or order some loaded baked potato dipping sauce, a tasty bacon and sour cream based concoction. The pickle chips also come highly applauded. Balance your starchy side with some wood-grilled veggies and set your sights on salad or a burger as the mainstay. Nancy’s backyard burger—a dry-aged beef blend patty topped with applewood bacon, avocado, tomato, red onion, lettuce, comté cheese, and spicy mayo—is a popular pick.

Whether you’re looking for a new hobby or a fun pastime for the whole family, biking is an enjoyable activity for everyone. It can be difficult for beginning bikers to locate the best trails, however, and even if you’re a more experienced cyclist you’re likely always looking for new places to ride. These two websites can help.

Map My Ride
Map My Ride offers a straightforward interface and a huge database of trails to help you find the best bike routes and paths in your area. Simply enter the route name or your state and the number of miles you’d like to bike and you’ll instantly be met with a variety of trails, ranked by how well they suit your criteria. Each trail is submitted by a Map My Ride user just like you, and they include informative descriptions about the difficulty level and other important details.

Single Tracks
Single Tracks operates in a similar way, but it’s tailored specifically to mountain biking. The website searches thousands of trails around the world to find the best one for you, whether you’re in your home town or you’re on vacation in another country.
