Some friends and I are planning to explore downtown LA (including Little Tokyo and Chinatown) by foot. This includes the delicious food that downtown has to offer. Our goal for the day will be to walk around and drop a few dollars here and there on tasty treats. Eventually, we plan to get full from all this random nibbling. Naturally I need everyone’s help in picking the spots. Here are some that are on my mind:
“Tijuana Dog” in the Garment District
Bacon wrapped hot dogs with grilled peppers, onions, and mayo. Planning on finding a random cart.
Gyoza: Tokyo Cafe 116 Judge John Aiso St, Los Angeles, CA
Delicious little fresh gyoza.
Egg Rolls: Empress Pavilion To Go 988 N Hill S, Los Angeles, CA
Where are the best egg rolls to-go in Chinatown?
Bahn Mi: Bu'u Dien 642 N Broadway, Chinatown
Although the bbq pork in my first and last bahn mi from here was as tough as beef jerky, I am still willing to give it another try. If anyone knows any other great bahn mi places in downtown, please speak up!
This list is clearly very scanty. I am looking for anything that is very cheap, delicious, and bite size. Any ideas?
