I've only been to LA once, and had about a day there. Next week, however, I'm there from Thursday to Sunday.... and I want to eat! I'm in NYC, and while we have great food here I'd love to get some LA gems that aren't something likely to find elsewhere (or at least in NYC).
I'm particularly interested in recommendations for Mexican food (which in NY is embarrassing), Korean, Japanese, street carts, anything that is unique or very notable. Price range is pretty across the board but nothing too crazy- I'd probably cap it at around $100 a person, but also happy to try $5 sandwiches that stand out.
Can you recommend LA-specific deliciousness for a weekend?
Many thanks for any suggestions!
