Urth Cafe & The Halls of LA

I was sensing a hipster night in LA, so my friends and I decided to hit up Urth Cafe for a late dinner. This was officially my first time ever trying Urth Cafe! I had to try out one of their most popular drinks which is the Spanish Latte. I wanted to stick with my usual vanilla latte but I was highly encouraged by my peers to get the hot Spanish Latte. Hot because you want to get the latte art in there.

My friend Apoorva and I both got the Spanish Latte with hipster latte art. There was a unique taste to this Spanish Latte where it’s a sweet in a different way compared to any general vanilla latte. This Spanish Latte has a sweet kicker to it.

We also shared a Panini Caprese that had mozarella, roasted peppers, sun dried tomatoes, pesto and olive spread. It was a simple yet filling panini.

Derek got a Moroccan Mint Tea Latte with a Hello Kitty foam work. Derek looked pretty happy with his latte art.

Victoria got a vegetarian Sprout Sandwich that is filled with a lot of good veggies.

We were probably there past 9:30PM and it was still packed! After sipping on some hipster drinks and eating hipster food, we decided to just walk around some concert halls. We checked out the Ahmanson Theater. You can just stand there for awhile and simply be entertained by the water show.

We went over to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Oh man, that venue has a bunch of hidden spots of beauty. The garden reminds me of the forest scenes in Snow White. Perhaps the landscape is designed in relations to the Disney’s movies. Though it was quite dark when we were exploring the outside of the concert hall, it was still beautiful. I’d definitely like to see it in sunlight. (Sorry for the poor quality of the picture below. I forgot to bring my fancy camera! This was taken with my iPhone.)

After much exploration, we headed back home. Thanks Apoorva for joining me last minute to hang out in Los Angeles with Derek and Victoria. Thanks Derek for driving us around!
