L.A. Taco Podcast: Learning About ‘Dominicans in Cali’ ~ Trying Out the Rams Sprinkles Donuts at Randy’s in Inglewood

[dropcap size=big]I[/dropcap]magine not having a restaurant for your national cuisine in Los Angeles? We didn't think it was possible, but it turns out that Dominican Americans in L.A. do not currently have a restaurant that represents their foods. But that hasn't stopped this small Latin subgroup (Dominicans account for less than half-a-percent of the total Latino population in L.A. County) from building a community here using Instagram.

Plus, yes, the Rams lost the Super Bowl. But the Rams sprinkles donuts at Randy's Donuts are still a winner for all! We check in with this iconic L.A. donut shop — you know it for its 32-ft donut replica on the roof — and learn about the wonders of its Apple Fritter.

PS. The first-ever Dominican Heritage Night is Feb. 13 with the LA Clippers.
