In Los Angeles, we’ve noticed a few odd moves from our favorite restaurants -– and we kind of like it! Call ‘em trends, call ‘em tributes; this is an ode to the dining curiosities courtesy of our city.
The Mysterious Moving Bäco
1 of 26
Once upon a time ago, we ate a bäco. It was in Echo Park at a weird place called Lot 1 Café
. Then, like a phantom it disappeared and reappeared at The Lazy Ox Canteen
. It's not always available, but we got to eat the bäco because chef Josef Centeno once made it for staff meal, and well, it was damn good. Then, Twitter revealed a new user: @the_baco
. It's bio: "I'm a delicious flatbread sandwich created by Josef Centeno." Truth. Like the bäco, the twitter account moved around as well (to @bacomercat
), but hopefully both have found a resting spot in Bäco Mercat
, a brick-and-mortar shop, .
