The LA Food Bowl is in full swing now with different events everyday in the month of May.  If you missed the Night Market don’t worry you can go next year and don’t miss it next year because there was so much to eat that you will want to go several days to try everything.  I can’t pick a favorite because each stand and food truck was good so whatever you try you won’t disappoint you.  Also, there is such a good variety of food that everything is so different you can’t really compare one to another.  Night Market was in Downtown LA in Grand Park and it featured 50 restaurants, bars and food trucks.  I went on the last day and thought I was going to try everything but I couldn’t.  Next year, I will take my time trying it over the five days and to explore all…
