I'm originally from LA, but I've never actually explored LA, so I know nothing about the city. I'm arriving at Union Station to meet up with a buddy, but the problem is that I arrive at 5:30am and my friend won't be able to join me until noon.
My current plan is just to walk to Olvera Street for a nice menudo or posole with fresh tortillas and then continue on to Chinatown to get a couple steamed buns or something. Any recommendations on the best places to do that?
I'm also open to any other suggestions. I've never taken the Metro Rail before, but I wouldn't mind taking it to get to somewhere noteworthy.
And yes, I do know about Philippe, but I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I don't like their sandwiches very much. It might be because I'm born and raised on The Hat.
