LA’s Koreatown is home to great bulgolgi and bibimbap, but that shouldn’t blind you to great non-Korean food in the same ‘hood. Chowhound Jase recently noticed Café Todo Dia, a casual Brazilian place that serves an array of tasty bites from an unexpected location on Olympic Boulevard.
Appetizers stand out, especially the croquette-like coxinha (pictured), filled with nicely seasoned chicken (warning: these sell out fast). Another must: fresh-out-of-the-oven pao de queijos, cheesy bread puffs with perfect chew. You can choose skirt steak, chicken, tilapia, or Brazilian sausage for your entrée plate, served with rice, beans, collard greens, and pickled vegetables. And hey, since it’s K-Town, Todo Dia’s Korean owners send out free banchan after you place your order. “Overall, just a good solid neighborhood place,” Jase says.
