Travel Log - Olvera Street (Downtown Los Angeles, CA)

Today my mom and I went to Chinatown and drove by one of many infamous places here in Los Angeles, California, Olvera Street, and decided to stop and walk around.



Here's comes a little history for you guys to know more about this place. Olvera Street is actually the oldest part of Downtown Los Angeles, California that was founded by a group of Spanish settlers and is now part of the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument. Besides having recognition for displaying 27 historic houses there's also a Mexican marketplace that surrounds Olvera Street.


Colorful and unique accessories from the Mexican marketplace unravels the quaintness of Mexican culture!

My favorite are the sweet stands from the marketplace. Prices ranges from 15¢ to a few dollars. I love the fact that everything is more fresh compared to the ones sold in the stores. You guys have to try out the strawberry balls from these stands as it's my absolute favorite. Speaking of it, I really want one now!!!

If you guys are planning to eat something here at Olvera Street then I would recommend you guys to try out  Cielito Lindo as it was one of the most popular eatery with a lot of people in line. This shop got a 4 out of 5 stars of Yelp. Best part of this little shop is that all food prices include tax!
