A Girl's Gotta Eat
One of my favorite things to do on a trip is to find the best places to eat, or just see to find those uncommon places that not everyone goes to. It's not only a great way for you to get some delicious food, but it's also a great way for you to explore the city that you are in. We made no exception for L.A. as we found some awesome places to eat at. Some were popular spots and some a little less well known. So without further ado, here were some of my favorite spots to eat at in L.A.
7200 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046
Monday - Thursday 7am - 7pm | Friday - Sunday 7am - 6pm
First stop is Fratelli Café located on Melrose Ave. This place is super cool and a perfect place to grab some food, chill with some friends, or maybe even get some work done. The atmosphere is great and the staff is very friendly. On top of that, they have a brunch menu packed with some delicious items. For this stop we had the Mushroom Tartine and the Avocado Toast with their delicious fries. Both items were not only good but very affordable for those of you keeping to a strict budget. Also, I would just like to say that this was the most perfectly poached egg I've ever had in my life. So, if you're ever hittin' the shops on Melrose (which you should be) make sure to make a stop at Fratelli Café.
317 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013 | Grand Central Market
Sunday - Wednesday 11am - 3pm | Thursday - Saturday 11am - 9pm
Knead is a delicious pasta pop-up within Grand Central Market, and though it may be a bit pricey, it's completely worth it. Their pasta is made fresh daily, and they do not skimp on portion sizes by any means. You're sure to be full and satisfied after you eat their delectable spaghetti and meatballs or one of their many other dishes here. And because of their prime location, you can just round the corner and grab some dessert after you've cured your pasta craving.
DTLA: 800 E. 3rd st @ Traction Los Angeles, CA 90013 | Venice: 625 Lincoln Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90291
DTLA: Monday – Sunday: 11 am – 1:30 am | Venice: Monday – Sunday : 11am – Midnight
Next we have Wurstküche, originally seen on Buzzfeed's Worth It, is a sausage place that gives you a variety of flavors like you've never seen before. From traditional Louisiana hot links to vegetarian sausage to rattlesnake? This is definitely a destination for foodies. They also have an extensive collection of beers for you to pair with your sausage, so head over to one of their two locations, and chow down.
4624 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027
Everyday: 8am - 3pm
Another find thanks to Buzzfeed's Worth It, this place is so freaking good! We could have eaten like 20 of their tacos, they are that amazing. HomeState should definetely be on you list of places to eat, if it's not already. They have a taco for everyone, from vegetarian options to your meat eaters, everyone can grab a taco and dip it into their delicious queso. Also they have really good Hibiscus Limeade, like really good, and very refreshing on a sunny L.A. day. Parking may be a little difficult to find, and seating is scarce, BUT this place is totally worth scouring a parking spot for. (Tip: if you go behind the building that HomeState is in, there is 2 hour parking.)
