Natalie Peruvian Seafood

Natalie Peruvian Seafood

WHY Peru’s Chinese influence is evident in the wonderful fried-rice dishes; also try the fried calamari and classic pescado saltado with french fries, and wash it down with an Inca Kola. WHAT This rival to Mario’s goes a little easier on the chiles but turns out Peruvian food that’s still powerfully flavorful. It’s a pleasant […]

Lotería Grill

Lotería Grill

WHY Tacos stuffed with chicken mole, mushrooms, cactus or squash, huevos rancheros for brunch and stunning aguas frescas made from fresh fruits or jamaica flowers. WHAT This little stand turns out some of the best Mexican food for miles around with a creative Mexico City—style flair. For more of a sit-down meal with the same […]

Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles

Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles

WHY Fried chicken and big waffles, of course. WHAT The name pretty much says it all. The original location of this small chain of gut-busting L.A. soul-food cafés, Roscoe’s is a Hollywood institution, and it’s a haven for people who can’t bear one more vegan scramble or nonfat chai latte. The fried chicken, waffles and […]

Azuma Izakaya

Azuma Izakaya

WHY Bargain izakaya dishes served in a casual, fun setting: udon, fresh mussels, fried chicken, miso black cod and much, much more. WHAT Three grill chefs send out excellent food until midnight from a menu with at least 100 items. Sake drums and beer kegs stacked in a corner decorate the tiny dining room, which […]

Don’t expect to rest in the weeks ahead; starting this weekend, April delivers scads of fun as well as a few actual showers. No joke. Loco for Tacos Whether native or transplant, if you […]
