Which cuisines does Los Angeles do better than anywhere else in the US? Discuss.

Hey all, so I was wondering, what food does LA do better than anywhere else in the country?

The reason I ask is because I feel LA is not lauded as a top US food city but it sure seems like we do some ethnic cuisine really good.

I seriously have no knowledge of other cities' food scenes, mainly I'm just curious.

But, it seems to me that we must do Thai pretty good, given that we have the largest Thai population outside Thailand. I especially imagine LA does regional Thai really well with restaurants like Jitlada (southern) and Spicy BBQ (Isaan.)

How about Vietnamese? I figure our main rival is the bay area?

Mexican? Jewish Delis? Ethiopian? Persian? Help me figure this out!
