After a long and arduous search, I just closed escrow on a SFR; Found a great house in Mt. Washington that I am moving to at the end of the month. I work downtown and am pretty familiar with the food choices there, as well as Silverlake, Los Feliz and other parts of central and west LA. While I will always travel for a good place to eat, sometimes it is good to know the lay of the land in your own backyard.
So, I envision that I will spend more time eating in and near the community that I am moving to. What is out there that is notable-- starting in Highland Park (good taco spots here?) and proceeding to Pasadena/South Pasadena to the east. Any help is greatly appreciated.
