As is the norm, after work I was hungry because I hadn’t eaten all day. The Nickel Diner has always been on my “to try” list but for whatever reason it never ended up happening before this past Thursday at the DTLA Artwalk.
Once I got as far as the front door, when I decided to leave (ask me why when you see me, because I wont blog about it). So, Thursday night, since I was in DTLA before all the action started, I had no excuse not to finally eat at the Nickel Diner.
They are somewhat known for their Pozole. I felt it was a little on the bland side, so I added a lot of pepper.
The burger was okay, nothing fabulous. And the onion rings? Well, I’ve definitely had better. This first visit was somewhat disappointing overall. Maybe I just ordered wrong.
As I left, I saw that they were having a bake sale out front! Their pastries all looked very nice and tempting! They even had homemade pop tarts! After much deliberation, I bought a Ding Dong for $3.25.
As I was taking a bite, a homeless man walked by and seemed confused because he thought it actually cost 5 cents.
