If you’re a true foodie, you will know many of these. The Godmother from Bay Cities. The Chopped Salad from La Scala. The Prime Rib from Lawry’s. Beautifully perennial classics that are quintessentially Los Angeles. We can all agree on this.

but…

The internal fighting about what made it to the final 100 was heated and brutal. Creating a list like this was a constant battlefield, because LA Magazine had to dig deep and figure out what “iconic” really means. Is it just something all of us like and keep coming back to? Does it have to be truly delicious? Can we include chains, or are we selling our souls? In any case, whether you’ve lived in Los Angeles for years, or you just arrived with a suitcase and a dream, these dishes, truly, should all be enjoyed at least once in your life. In no particular order, HERE is the list.

The KFC Fire Log Smells Like Fried Chicken

For more than a million years, mankind has been attempting to improve upon the simple fire. We’ve tried burning different things like sticks or leaves or various incriminating documents. We’ve tried making fires last longer. We’ve even figured out how to turn them into different colors. All of that experimentation, all of that innovation, has culminated in this event, the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog, from Enviro-Log. 

Imbued with the unmistakable, mouth-watering aroma of Colonel Sanders’ secret recipe, the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog finally puts to rest the age-old dilemma, “How can I make this fire a hundred bajillion times better?”

– Each Firelog can burn up to 2.5-3 hours.
– Can be stored and no shelf life. Store in a safe, dry area away from pets.
– May result in a craving for fried chicken. We know the fire log smells great, but please do not attempt to eat it.
– May attract bears or neighbors who are hungry.
– Please don’t put face directly into fire in attempt to smell fried chicken.

Order HERE for $18.99.

McDonald’s Launches New Triple Breakfast Stacks

Beginning November 1, McDonald’s customers can conquer morning hunger with Triple Breakfast Stacks, a breakfast sandwich that doubles down on customers’ favorite ingredients.

Triple Breakfast Stacks come with two slices of melty American cheese between two savory, hot sausage patties. They’re topped with crispy, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon and an egg. Guests can opt for their choice of a toasted McMuffin, buttery and flaky biscuit, or sweet and savory McGriddles cakes.

“People have been hacking our menu for years – so much so that it’s inspired our new Triple Breakfast Stacks,” said Manager of Culinary Innovation Chef Mike Haracz. “We love seeing the fun ways our customers and McDonald’s crew have been creating their own takes on our classics. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next – you never know what might end up on our menu.”
