    Diddy Riese Cookies

    926 Broxton Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024
    36 reviews

    I went to Ucla. The smell of the baking cookies when walking by at 9 am is incredible! I have many memories of waiting in the crazy line with a bunch of friends after midnight to get our diddly rinse fix! Now no trip back to Westwood is complete without a cookie ice cream sandwich!

    Hakata Ramen Shin-Sen-Gumi

    132 S Central Ave Los Angeles, CA 90013
    14 reviews

    A bit larger and more upscale than the Gardena location and I'm happy to report it's just as tasty! Parking is easy next door at the Staples parking lot and they validate so it'd be free.

    Emperor Noodle

    800 W Las Tunas Dr
    4 reviews

    The Xiao long bao soupy dumplings gives ding tai fungs a run for its money. 8 dumplings for 5 bucks and at fantastic quality - much cheaper than its rival. Their dumplings have a thicker skin and more meat. I can see why la weekly rated it second to din Tai Fung. Also no wait here! Amazing! Also try the ...

    Mama's Lu Dumpling House

    501 W Garvey Ave Ste 101-103 Monterey Park, CA 91754
    15 reviews

    90% of the tastiness of Din Tai Fung. 60% of the price. That's a winner in my book. Seriously, their dumplings are delicious and everything is cheap cheap cheap. You can even buy a bag of 50 dumplings for $13 and steam them at home, which is an even better deal.

    8233 Firestone Boulevard, Downey, CA
    17 reviews

    How have I not written a review for Porto's yet?! I like to come here EARLY so I don't deal with people. But there's always people here. Good thing is that their staff is so well-oiled, that it doesn't take too long to get to your pastry delights! LOVE: Guava Cheese Pastry Cheese Rolls LIKE: Spinach Cheese Croissant Empanadas Cubano ...

    In-N-Out Burger

    7009 W Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028
    19 reviews

    This was my first In-n-Out experience being from the Midwest. The place was constantly busy the hour we were there, but service was quick and super friendly. The food was ok. But I had high expectations from what everyone told me. It was good, fries were great, and the milkshake was a step above ok. Bathrooms were decent, not a ...

    651 W Duarte Rd Ste F, Arcadia, CA
    14 reviews

    I've been eating at this place for years, and I love that the food is always consistent and the prices don't seem to increase (that I know of). My staple choice is the pork chop rice, but the pork chop noodles are good, too. I like that the rice comes with veggies, corn, and tomato and egg. The pork chop ...

    Don't let the lines for this place stop you from coming here.... it sort of goes by fast and its sort of worth it! The place to grab some lunch and dessert!

    Seoul Sausage Company

    11313 Mississippi Avenue, West Los Angeles, California
    17 reviews

    No wonder these guys won the Great Food Truck Race. Excellent Korean-style sausages infused with American goodness. Lots of delicious items to choose from, ranging from the sausages to the "balls" that were so popular on the show. This place is packed, so get there early. This comes with the distinction of knowing one of the owners from high school. ...

    Father's Office

    1018 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403
    48 reviews

    Hands down the best burger I've ever had. i think it tasted 100 x better for me and my date because we were starving AND were craving for meat. I'm really curious how they made it so delicious. This is probably the first burger I enjoyed without ketchup. We were lucky enough to find a place to sit at the ...

    Nickel Diner

    524 South Main Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013
    4 reviews

    Ah, it's the best and worst of traditional American food. BLTs, pancakes, sausage and omelets. Lots of butter and cheese. Comfortable, yet lively the night I went. We all appreciated the fun atmosphere, hearty food, and bluejeans feel of the place. And it was not expensive. I'd go again and I'd be happy to bring my friends.

    4 reviews

    the cutest little gem in this part of town. used to be our secret go-to place but glad that others found it. the drinks here (all the bobas and milkshake) are amazing, the desserts are so cute, and all the menu items have cute names like "bowlitoes." I love their bowls, their tuna salads, their huge rolls, pretty much everything. ...

    Don Day

    300 South Hobart Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, United States
    8 reviews

    One of my unmentioned spots to stop at when Road to Seoul is jam packed. Some may not like the service here but I'm here for the different meats to BBQ on the grill. Great marinades and in my own opinion, I think the service is great. Friends I bring also think the same. Come make your own decision based ...

    Half and Half's iced milk has nothing on Tbay's fresh cream hokkaido green tea! The Fresh Milk Cream Hokkaido Green Tea is a part of their Milk Cream series and ... it's amazing. I wanted the caramel one, but they don't make caramel because it isn't as special as the Hokkaido or sea salt, so I went with the Hokkaido. ...

    11 reviews

    Wow one of my new seafood restaurants! The uni pasta is great, but super rich. The garlic noodles are fantastic and the fresh uni and salmon carpaccio are killer. However, the best thing is their $1 oyster happy he from 4-7pm! The bar manager, Joshua is super great! Ask him to make you a custom cocktail as he is a ...

    3 reviews

    ​On this particular day, I was on a mission for one of my favorite Southeast Asian street foods: wonton noodles. I presented Sapp Coffee Shop with the challenge of pleasing a customer coming in expecting something specific. I had a vision for what I wanted put in front of me. I wanted slightly chewy freshly made egg noodles as a ...

    20 reviews

    OK, everything is deep fried here, but this seaside institution has been serving up great seafood since the days of the beach boys and you still get that vibe when you come after a day on the beach for a great meal as the sun sets on the Pacific.
