So, the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival is in a couple of weeks, from May 1-8, in venues in Downtown Los Angeles (close to Little Tokyo) and West Hollywood (around the Director's Guild). My job in the festival is to get out information to filmmakers & guests of the festival, and since I enjoy eating, I wanted to put out some recommendations for good places to eat close to the venues. There will be a chunk of folks from out of town, as well as locals who may or may not be familiar with these two areas.
I have been scouring the posts for good suggestions for West Hollywood & Downtown and wanted to make sure I'm not missing any favorites.
Since it's the Asian Pacific film fest and there will be a lot of Asian American folks in the mix, I definitely want to include the best Asian spots in these areas. But especially for out-of-towners, I want to make sure to cover places that are really good LA spots of other cuisines as well. (Taco trucks, heyyy...)
I get the impression there will be a mix of budgets among the filmmakers, so if you can, please indicate if this place is cheap ($25). It's all weekend, so it's breakfast, lunch & dinner.
