    Mitsuru Cafe

    8 reviews

    They have one of the best authentic Japanese snacks in the area. I never dined there but I love getting their food on a stick when I feel like eating light. Most of their food on a stick costs about $2-$4. Average is $2. They have different kinds of fish cakes, shrimp balls, fried shrimp shumai, takoyaki, dango (rice balls ...

    Langer's Deli

    Had the 19 for lunch. Cleaned my plate... Rye bread, coleslaw and all (and i'm not usually a fan of either rye or coleslaw). The only thing about the bread i could do without is the crust. It was harder than i would've liked. The Pastrami was so tasty and tender. there are so many other things on the menu ...

    Yellow House Cafe

    6 reviews

    Not well-versed in K-town, I ventured to this spot on a recommendation expecting either something revolving around karaoke or AYCE BBQ. What I got from the very unassuming entrance was a beautiful setting inside, or should I say outside, because the seating consists of many tables with comfortable chairs under open air views. Unfortunately, that also means that most of ...

    The Dresden

    7 reviews

    This place is an institution. It's a steakhouse set in Los Feliz with $3.50 valet. Upon entering, the host asked us twice if we had reservations for dinner. Yes, we were there for dinner since it was a quarter to 6 pm. If you've ever seen the movie Swingers, the Dresden is referenced in the movie and there was scene ...

    Mapaya is such a cute little dessert shop hidden among the bustling street of Sawtelle. Decorated ice cream animals and crepes are a nice change of pace if you're tired of always getting boberz at Coco's or Volcano Tea House for dessert. I tried a "flat" crepe with strawberry ice cream with nutella and whatnot. It was "A-OK." It satisfied ...

    Guisados Tacos

    17 reviews

    Guisados has a good variety of authentic and tasty tacos with some very interesting flavors. I also like their melon drink quite a bit and would highly recommend getting a six-taco sampler if you're here for the first time.

    Hae Jang Chon

    13 reviews

    Yum! Love the brisket here and I was stoked when my little brother did too. His and my mom's first LA KTown KBBQ experience :) they make kimchi fried rice for you after your meal too. As always, don't leave any extra meat on the table, you get charged.

    What amazingly fresh sushi! The lunch special for $35 is solid here. The set comes with two pieces of blue fin tuna, blue crab hand roll and butterfish and several other great additions. The service is superb and there's a free lot for parking! One if my favorite lunch spots in the area!

    Mashti Malone Ice Cream & Ice

    What a find (!!) I can't believe that this small mom n' pop shop is only footsteps away from Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Seriously... if you're going to walk around one of LA's most tourist infested area, you might as well enjoy it with some amazing ice cream! I decided to get two scoops ($4 double, $3 single) with two of ...

    Fantastic brunch spot in Loz feliz. The bread pudding and omlettes are all ginormous and tasty. You can probably share a plate. The service is great as well!

What a good cup of coffee. Smooth, rich, and such a bold, unique sour taste. You can taste the quality and effort put into carefully brewing ...

    Daikokuya Original Noodle & Rice-Bowl

    20 reviews

    The best ramen in Little, LA. Jinya is closer to me but Daikokuya is my favorite. The broth is milky, complex and perfect. Noodles are curly, al-dente. Pork is soft, egg is usually great (today it was a bit overcooked but usually it's a soft boiled egg). Bean sprouts, tons of green onions. Perfection. The fried rice is also ...

    I did dine la here and it was 45 dollars before tip and tax for a delicious 3 course meal. The chicken liver, market fish and s'mores were so tasty! I also tried moules frites which was huge! This is a a shareable plate! I can see why president Obama dined here last year!

    Black Hogg

    9 reviews

    So many of my friends recommended Black Hogg as one of the best places to go for dineLA but I just couldn't find a reservation. This time around, I made a reservation several weeks ahead and finally found a reservation for 2 on a Wednesday. All the tables were full and food came out as they are ready. I would ...

    Public School 612

    10 reviews

    Made a stop here after shopping at skidazzle. Its a cool place to hang out and eat with friends. The whole theme is a “school classroom”. Even their menus look like school composition journals. Definitely try their burgers: the pub and the lamb burger is amazing. Order a side of brown bag fries and they have a great beer selection. ...

    Delicious late night soft serve, made out of whole milk and honey comb. You can taste the strength of the milk from the very first bite. The honeycomb adds a great touch to it!

    Chaya Brasserie Beverly Hills

    8 reviews

    Finally got a chance to try Chaya during dine la. The squid ink risotto and albacore tuna was phenomenal as well as the croissant bread pudding! I'll come back just for the dessert. Excellent service and classy ambience. I'm sold and will be back! I can't believe I've never been here as it's right down the street from me!

    Make sure you have time because lines here lasts at least 30mins. The food here is amazing. They are filipino owned and cooked the best eggs, no wonder why they are called eggslut. I've had almost everything on the menu. They use brown eggs in their burgers and food. Juicy delicious and the egg just bursts all over since it's ...
