“This is one of my favorite taco trucks in LA. On the weekends they have the pastor out on a spit and slice it fresh for tacos and other dishes. The salsa bar is great as well. There's no seating really just some tables for people to stand and eat around. But ones of LA's most famous taco trucks. ”

Steakhouse

“Ok this one isn't walking distance...but it's the only steakhouse I go to. Ask Alex to make you a dirty martini the way James likes it; order the coulotte cut medium rare(only two cuts of these per steer), and ask the waiter to show you the booth that Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack used to sit in. Oh yeah, did I not mention this was their favorite too? This place has been around since 1947.”
