Visit to LA from NYC

Hi, coming into town in late October and would love some must eat food spots. Will travel in any part of LA for good food! I do have a few things I'd love suggestions on:

1. Soup Dumplings-- We have Joe's Shanghai in NYC. Anything similar in LA? Would like to try a West Coast rendition.

2. Best Hamburger-- Where can we find the best hamburger in LA? I'm in love with the Minetta Black Label burger and the Shake Shack burgers (although two completely different styles, both monumental).

3. Best Mexican-- So full disclosure, I'm originally from Austin and grew up on cheesy tex-mex. Would like to find something like that, but totally appreciate the cleaner flavors of West Coast Mexican too. Maybe a place that has both?

4. Wild Card-- what one place do we need to try?
