Bamn in New York City - No Weird Meats?
LAist is on a cross country road trip to see what LA is missing.
Yesterday we arrived in New York City. We never want to hear anyone ever say that LA drivers can't drive. We've never seen such madness until we drove the streets of Manhattan. Maybe it was actually super-great driving because no one got in accidents and no one pulled out a gun, but we seriously wanted to beat some people's asses the way they cut us off, and then had the nerve to blare their horn after we cut them off by turning right from the middle lane. HA!
The taco we ate was horrible. The pedestrians that walk anywhere they want to were horrible. But we did love Bamn, a Euro-style automated food place where "25-hours a day" you could just walk up to a machine and get donuts or hot dogs or a variety of dishes for a somewhat reasonable price.
Because we're watching our figure we didn't sample any of the deliciousness but we did take this video mostly so you could hear the Jackson 5 playing. Our friends are from Holland and they complained that the pastries didn't contain any of the "weird meat" that they were used to. Baby, the whole thing is weird to us, but we could totally see one of these bad boys opening up on Hollywood Blvd. to compete with the taco trucks and hot dog carts, couldn't you?
