where to eat in los angeles like a local!

Brunch on Sundays? Angelenos—as the southern California Los Angeles locals call themselves — love it! From a one-of-a-kind dining experience with celebrity chefs to takeout dishes from a food truck, Los Angeles has endless food options that nobody would have their appetites left unsatisfied. Los Angeles does not need advertisements to get that vibrant restaurant scene out of your imagery. We'll help you explore every inch of this unique food city, from the Los Angeles fine dining experience to the humble Middle Eastern neighborhood experience and the amazing food of Grand Central Market.

Get a fresh cup of coffee by the beach, then breakfast tacos in Santa Monica – just make sure you save room for the indulgent sweets and desserts from north, south, east, and west LA. We'll head to Downtown Los Angeles—or DTLA for short—for specialty meat dishes and natural wine at an open-roof bar or classic dining room. In Los Angeles, you can taste amazing dishes of every food trend before they go viral. Fine dining? We got it. Comfort food? That too. You want fried chicken and a good coffee on Thai taco Tuesday? Break the rules—you're in Los Angeles — you can have it all.

Wizz through Vermont Avenue, and uncover the hidden gems in or around Los Angeles, from Santa Monica to the Silver Lake to West Hollywood and San Gabriel Valley.
