2012's Top 12 L.A. Foodstuffs Under $12

This post was originally published on The Unemployed Eater.

'Tis the season... of Best Of lists. Never to shy away from the holiday spirit, I am very pleased (for the third year in a row) to present Unemployed Eater's very own enumeration, 2012's Top 12 L.A. Foodstuffs Under $12. Twenty-twelve was a blessed year for the blog as I ate and drank my way through Los Angeles greater than I ever had before. Thus, in turn, I think this year's Top 12 is the most comprehensive to date. The list follows the previously set guidelines: 1) 2012 must have been the first year in which I consumed the item, 2) Restaurant must be located in L.A./L.A. County and 3) Foodstuff must cost $12 or less before tax.
