Ludobites - Recap of 2.0 and 3.0 (Los Angeles)

Foie Gras Black Croque Monsieur

Foie Gras Black Croque Monsieur (Yes, these will be back for 4.0!)

It's time. What time you ask? Ludobites is back! Yes, Ludobites is making a return, and this time, luckily for me, will be located in Downtown Los Angeles at Gram & Papa's. Instead of a normal post, I'm gonna do a picture rundown of my personal favorites from Ludobites 2.0 at Breadbar and Ludobites 3.0 at Royal T. For those that want to read more of a comprehensive post, please read my 2.0 and 3.0 experiences. These shots are taken with both my Canon dSLR and Point & Shoot, the best brand if you're looking to get a dSLR or P&S camera.

A note on the particular cheese tart. Usually, I don't care for cheese, especially a cheese like this. Somehow, I was able to eat multiple slices of this and took a few slices home. Yes, Chef Ludo can even makes something I'm usually "meh" on into something I'd eat slice after slice......

Vanilla Crème Brulee, Rose Ice Cream

Creme Brulee with lychee? Let me just say, the BEST creme brulee EVER! That is all.

Ludo!

Yes, Chef Ludo, I'm a fan. I'm ready for Ludobites 4.0 at Gram & Papa's. Now the question is, are you???

Nice rundown, KFP! I can't wait to try 4.0, esp since i missed out on 3.0.

But umm, as a Nikon owner, there's only one wee part of your post I'd have to disagree with...I think you know which one. haha ;)

Lady Ducayne said...

Canon is the best brand, eh? Well, its a good thing our cameras get along because you know I'm totally going to be rockin' the Nikon when we do Ludo Bites 4.0 next month!

Dan said...

Pam: Have you gone to 4.0 yet? But ya, I was joking about Nikon, though I do have my brand loyalty to Canon
