Eat-LA


Clementine

Clementine

WHY Delicious updated feel-good food, like sloppy joes, saucy BBQ pork and vegetable lasagne, to feed two people or a crowd. WHAT In addition to being one of L.A.’s more popular caterers, Annie Miler also runs this café, bakery and takeout place. Some dishes, like sandwiches and breakfast items, are served on an individual basis; [...]

Jack’s Classic Hamburgers

Jack’s Classic Hamburgers

WHY Great bacon-chili-cheeseburgers, classic burgers sparked with fresh jalapeños and slightly healthier turkey burgers (which we fatten up with bacon). WHAT In a parking lot next to the 170 Freeway is the best burger stand in the Valley, home to fresh, quality hamburgers, crispy skinny fries, good onion rings and tasty chili. 11375 Riverside Dr., [...]

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

WHY You can’t underestimate the amusement factor of seeing emaciated middle-aged Beverly Hills social X-rays being presented with massive, glistening porterhouses. WHAT Wolfgang Zwiener learned a lot of things in his decades as headwaiter at Peter Luger in New York, especially the importance of good service in an expensive steakhouse. So he has this handsome [...]

Avast, Ye Tumors!

Avast, Ye Tumors!

What do pirates, bacon-wrapped hot dogs and Adam’s Attic have in common? Normally nothing, but on May 21st, they’re coming together for an afternoon party to raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, which funds research into neurofibromatosis, nerve-damaging tumors that strike children. Tickets are a mere $25, and they include all the bacon-wrapped hot [...]

Sapp Coffee Shop

Sapp Coffee Shop

WHY Thai food cooked for the Thai palate. WHAT This 20-year-old Thai Town luncheonette (open through dinner as well) has been spiffed up in modish citrus shades. But the full-throttle onslaught of capsicum heat in its po-tak soup, stir-fried pork or chicken reminds Thais and the rest of us how food tastes in the homeland. [...]

Jay Bee’s

Jay Bee’s

WHY Tender, just-fatty-enough pork ribs, pulled-pork sandwiches, rib tips, brisket and cornbread, to eat at the one picnic table or to take home—except most people can’t wait until they get home and rip into the ribs in the car. WHAT Barbecue fans can (and do) argue for days, weeks, even years about whose ribs are [...]

Locavores, Hybrids & Kendall-Jackson on KPCC

Locavores, Hybrids & Kendall-Jackson on KPCC

This week’s Eat LA on KPCC segment pays tribute to Kendall-Jackson founder Jess Jackson, who died recently; visits Street’s Susan Feniger at the South Pasadena Farmers’ Market to talk about eating locally and sustainably; learns about Mark Stambler’s cool backyard bread oven; and visits The Spice Table, LA’s newest Asian hipster hybrid. Check out the [...]

Torrance Farmers’ Market

Torrance Farmers’ Market

WHY Because the city of Torrance loves its farmers, and you can feel the vibe. WHAT The jewel of the South Bay, this market runs on two days, Tuesday and Saturday. Saturday is bigger, but both have a tasty mix of seasonal produce, plus a strong Asian selection—Hmong grower Vang Thao’s stand, for instance, is [...]

Pure Luck Restaurant

Pure Luck Restaurant

WHY Sweet potato fries and fried dill pickle chips that will make you feel virtuous, even if they’re fried. The jackfruit ‘carnitas’ is pretty darn good, too. WHAT This fetching cottage-style restaurant may be vegan, but at any given time about half of the diners are carnivores who aren’t the least bit annoyed that their [...]

Pork x Five

Pork x Five

If 666 is the sign of the devil, 555 now appears to be the sign of the pig, although we’re not exactly clear why—other than the folks behind a nationally touring food and wine fundraising shindig decided to make the event all about 5s. Dubbed Cochon555, the May 1 happening at Vibiana downtown will showcase [...]
