FOOD GUIDE TO LOS ANGELES

We love visiting Los Angeles for its laid-back vibes, sunset views, old friends, and all the great food around town.The food scene is amazing from Silverlake, Culver City, Westfield mall, La Brea Avenue, Koreatown, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Los Felix, West Hollywood to Japan town. Also, we love our dear friends, The Tran family, for showing us their secret hideaways for excellent food and concepts so we’re guaranteed a full tummy and good time.

Another food pit-stop is visiting our dear chef friend, Vincent Cheng of Miss Yip Chinese, who opened three delicious Chinese restaurants in his hometown of San Gabriel, California. Just 25 minutes west of Los Angeles and definitely worth the drive for Peking duck , roast pork and Hong Kong comfort food.

What’s a trip to LA without a  visit to some of our favorite spots. Din Tai Fong for the BEST fried rice and dumplings; Chateau Marmont for cocktails; Beverly Hills Hotel for breakfast; The Apple Pan for burgers and Café Gratitude.

Tell us about your favorite spot so we can trade some foodie secrets. (Updated November 2021)
