The next time you travel to Los Angeles, California, hit up one or more of these recommended spots.
Between the celebrity-run restaurants, pop-ups from famous chefs, and all of the food trucks; good food can be found almost anywhere in Los Angeles. This seems like a great problem to have when you live in L.A., but what happens when you’re just visiting for a day or two? All of those options just seem overwhelming – a little direction would be helpful.
Tasty has provided three food options in their very first episode of a new series, Friend in Town. The premise seems simple enough, if you had a friend in town for one day, or were visiting a friend in another town for one day, where would you eat? What would you see? All of the options selected for Los Angeles are winners in my book; this new series is a winner in my book!
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Eggslut. Located in the very cool Grand Central Market, Eggslut is my go-to breakfast spot when I’m visiting LA. I go back and forth between the Fairfax, which is the sandwich highlighted in the video below, and the sausage, egg, and cheese. It all depends on my mood and how hungry I am. I may or may not have eaten both sandwiches at the same time once…. But seriously, if you visit only one of the restaurants on this list, Eggslut is my vote. Click here to find out more.
Lunch: Ricky’s Fish Taco’s Food Truck
It was a long time before one of my colleagues in Los Angeles took me to Ricky’s; I’d heard about it before but at the time, I still didn’t get all the fuss about food trucks (I do now!). Ricky’s really is one of the best street fish tacos I’ve ever had and trust me, I’ve tried a lot of them. If you’re in LA, click here to find out more about the location and hours of operation.
Admittedly, I have never been to Providence so this suggestion was new and one that I’ll be sure to hit as soon as possible. There is no other food group that I love more than that of seafood – that’s a food group, right? It doesn’t matter if it’s high end or not, seafood of all levels is insanely delicious (except imitation, I can’t stand imitation…). Providence is known for their award-winning dishes prepared with “only wild-caught, sustainable products.” Click here to find out more.
What do you think? Are these the options you would’ve chosen for a short day-trip to LA?
