I moved from Hawaii to Los Angeles a year ago. I missed the good food back in the islands of Hawaii. Last weekend, my friend took me to this place and the food is very very good. I tried their bbq short ribs and will go back to try other items. They are located at city of Monrovia.
Pink's is probably the most famous hot dog stand in the country... certainly in Los Angeles! Located near the corner of Melrose and La Brea, Pink's can be found by looking for a crowd of people and following the aroma of fresh meaty chili and soft hot dog buns.
When you walk into Literati, you know you've arrived somewhere different than the norm. The refreshing, sophisticated environment is perfect for meeting friends, or for writing your screenplay, or just to eat the best soup of your life.
Been around since 1947 Best Hickory burgers and pie in the city. Check it out! this place has not changed since 1947. They redo the decor but it's always the same, inviting and warm. Nice place to feel like a community family. People that move away still come back whenever they are in town, including me. I went there as a child in the 40's and now my children and their children have enjoyed the same warm cozy friendly Apple Pan.
Located on Franklin Ave. across from the Scientology Center (I know, I know), the B. Pig is one of the most fabulous cafe/hangouts on the East Side of Los Angeles. It's decked out in Morroccan style, complete with internet access, a fabulously mellow back room, and strawberry smoothies like you've never had. A must visit.
great place to meet and eat. Great Family owned Breakfast,lunch and Dinner spot. Casual and Trendy. Most important, the best food in LA. You are always made to feel welcome and part of the family. The son, Paul is now running it and it's growing daily because of the reputation of the food and service. It has always had a family kitchen feel and now it has the family dining room too.
Ajisai is a good neighborhood sushi bar in West Hollywood. Shoei, who serves you from behind the bar, is also the owner. His wife is your hostess. Maybe the family scale is what gives Ajisai its sense of relaxed welcome. Shoei can be found wrapping and rolling every night except Mondays. As a good sushi chef, he is available not only to prepare your dish but to chat with you (or not) if you like. House specialties are named after the American presidents. You can order the Bush, the Clinton, or the Nixon if it suits your fancy and politics. Shoei has been here about a dozen years and says he plans to stay. So when you're hungry on Santa Monica Boulevard, turn just north onto Palm Avenue and look him up.
