I'm a coffee guy in LA so here you go: Kumquat in Highland Park - takeout only rn. my favorite coffee spot these days Document in ktown - takeout only Coffee MCO in ktown Maru in little Tokyo Verve has a few locations all over Copa Vida in Pasadena Some oc-ish spots I've been to: Tiger Sugar - not just coffee and sell bread Drips Stereoscope Hopper and burr

Wow 🤩 Thank you both so much 🙏🏼

Park near muscle beach and rent a bike, then bike all the way up Santa Monica (it’s roughly 5-8 miles, but very chill); As for Asian food - you should look around Irvine, Arcadia / Monterey Park, Diamond Bar / Rowland Heights

Awesome. Thank you 👍🏼

If you’re going to Garden Grove, MoRanGak is a must. It’s the best bibimnaengmyum I’ve ever had in the US, and all the meats and banchan are of high quality. Also try Brodard and Vox Kitchen nearby in fountain valley. Great Vietnamese spots different than normal pho restaurants.

Add those restaurants to my list. Thanks a lot 🙏🏼

MPK and SGV in general for Chinese food. JJs, Savoy Chicken, Sam woo, The Hat, too many to choose from. Half and half for boba. Hike the Hollywood sign, Griffith park at night, Malibu for sunset, dinner at pacific palisades. IMO, OC is more fun for beach activities- much cleaner and more to choose from. Also top notch Cali Mexican food- grab a CAli burrito or carne asada fries. Hope you’re going to garden grove for family. Not much there. Best Pho ever had is Pho 54 in Westminster. Teochew noodles next to Westminster Vietnamese mall place called Kim Ky. Vietnamese coffee is at 7 leaves. Korean food- go to ktown for Hamji park. Or house of Galbi in Encino.

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
