Eat-LA


Haifa

Haifa

WHY For kosher, Israeli-style Middle Eastern cooking that’s fresher, lighter and more flavorful than most. WHAT This storefront looks cheesy from the outside, but inside is a cheerful café with yellow walls, vintage French posters and granite café tables. Its Middle Eastern cooking is a bit different from the Lebanese norm: easier on the oil [...]

888 Seafood

888 Seafood

WHY High-quality Chiu Chow dim sum, and lots of it. Don’t miss the taro and the exceptionally juicy sui mai. WHAT This vast and grand restaurant is famed for the incredible range of its dim sum-60 choices most weekdays and 80 on weekends—and its Chiu Chow expertise also extends to dishes like the whole perch [...]

Axe

Axe

WHY That Abbot Kinney esprit, plus a chance to feel virtuous and catered-to at the very same meal. WHAT From the sidewalk, Axe (pronounced ‘ah-shay’) looks so understated as to be practically unmarked, but that hasn’t stopped the hordes from discovering its green-friendly menu and tastefully minimalist vibe. The entrées, like the porterhouse pork chop [...]

Penzeys Spices

Penzeys Spices

WHY Kala jeera (black cumin) or French four spice, and knowledgeable staffers who can tell you what to do with them. WHAT This Wisconsin-based chain is the Grand Cru of spice shops. At both the new Santa Monica branch and in Torrance, you’ll find a dizzying selection of chile powder, cinnamon and pepper blends. The [...]

Wat Dong Moon Lek

Wat Dong Moon Lek

WHY For a taste of au courant Thai cooking followed by fine-dining-caliber desserts. WHAT A stylish storefront noodleteria where noodles are just a start. The kap klâem-bar-snack-like small plates-reflect the urban Thai culinary trends inspired by owner Billy Jalanugraha’s visits to his native Bangkok. Don’t miss the house version of larb tod: the fried ground [...]

Yamashiro Garden Market

Yamashiro Garden Market

WHY Yamashiro’s view, farmers’ market prices. WHAT This new market boasts sweeping views of L.A. from the terraced garden below the venerable tourist icon Yamashiro Restaurant.

Shanghai Restaurant

Shanghai Restaurant

WHY Ambitious cuisine for discriminating eaters. WHAT In its coveted spot-the second floor of the huge Chinese Focus Plaza-Shanghai could probably get by serving the usual cold wine chicken, spicy cold beef tendon and a few pedestrian hot pots.
