Watch Animal's Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo on 'Munchies'

Animal chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo star in the Hollywood edition of Vice's "Munchies" TV series.

"The food scene has really taken a turn here [in L.A.] in the last five years," says Dotolo on the show. "Now it's a place where it's considered to be a culinary mecca of the U.S. I don't know if the rest of the U.S. would agree with that, but I think we want to kind of wave that flag a little bit."

So the Animal guys pile into a van with a dozen others, including actors Aziz Ansari, Michael Rapaport, Ethan Suplee and Zach McGowan, to do some late-night snacking at Gui Rim, Dino's Chicken & Burgers, Mi Teresita taco truck and more. They also make doughnuts, which, according to Shook, are seasonal. "Believe it or not, doughnuts only work when the temperature is right here in L.A."

What is this- "Jackass" of the culinary world? No moral qualm with their choice language but these hipsters aren't doing themselves any favors by acting like cro-mags.

The way people eats is so bad!! In the next five years everybody in the hospital for high cholesterol and you name it...
When are we all going to learn. I have an advice for everybody, you need to start taking care of your eating habits now!!, later in life, too late, the health care system is sinking because of all this dishes...CHICKEN WINGS..so famous right now, pure fat...
These restaurants are killing us and we let them...not me.
