We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Behold the Monte Cristo from Echo Park's The Park, a pork-and-sweet fried sandwich that might have the power to rethink that plan of yours to follow a healthy eating plan before bathing suit season.

As described by the LAist Featured Photos contributor who shared this decadent meal with us via Flickr, the Monte Cristo is: "Super big and super delicious, with an interesting and tasty touch of mustard. Drop a forkful in some syrup and then you're set."

A thing of beauty? A heart attack waiting to happen? Both? Up to you.
