"Real?" He went to Roscoe's, talked shit on what is essentially stoner food, and then went to Cole's for an ok french dip. The rest of the episode was about traffic, Derby Dolls, and Jerry Stahl. He might as well have gone to Norm's, or to Brown Derby for a Cobb Salad.
The whole episode was really unimaginative. I didn't expect him to be dining at AOC or anything, but I was really hoping he would focus on all the great overlooked places that are sandwiched between liquor stores and laundromats in strip malls. Or maybe spending a little time in Korea Town or Little Ethiopia, or just about anything besides Roscoe's and Cole's. If I remember correctly he did go to the Thai Town grocery store. That was good.
