LA can't miss eats?

Sooo I'm going to Los Angeles, literally just for 1 day, this friday, i'd normally grab some mcdonalds or eat at the hotel but i thought i'd try something different this time.

I know there are a million websites for answering this, but where better than here on RS?

any suggestions?

Bottega Louie if you're downtown. Amazing food and atmosphere, easily my favourite restaurant in L.A.

If you like steak hit up STK. For more upscale try The Palm.

If you're a coffee drinker, try Philz Coffee. It's a San Francisco company but I know there's a couple locations in the LA area.

Are you there the whole day? Specifically which areas are you going to be in?

If you've only got one day I would recommend;
On the go breakfast - Egg Slut
Brunch - Gjelina
Lunch/Dinner - Bottega Louie (as stated above, their desserts are pretty legit too - grab a few for the lady friend/to go!)
Dinner - Kang Ho-dong Baekjong (Favorite KBBQ place i've been to so far)

If you're looking for something a bit cheaper, if you're in the area I would recommend 'Sapp Coffee Shop' for lunch or something, legitttt thai/asian food for really cheap. There's also things like Roscoe's chicken and waffles and Umami burger that we don't have locally that are worth giving a try!

Also, if you're a fan of Uni I really liked the uni dishes & lobster roll at EMC seafood.

Makes me miss LA

I just got back from Los Angeles yesterday. Egg Slut is good for breakfast as jtanner mentioned.
Before heading to LAX I had breakfast at Superba Food & Bread at The Point location. Their avocado toast and french toast are amazing. The added bonus is there are so many milfs at this location, I think I was the only guy there

If you are in Long Beach you gotta have the Seafood Cobb salad at Kings Fish House.

If you are downtown check out Grand Central Market on 3rd Street. It's a big food hall with some good offerings (this is where Egg Slut is located).

Also, Sandwich Shop at the corner of S Grand and 6th Street. It literally is called Sandwich Shop and looks really basic, but they make awesome sandwiches. The Cuban is pretty legit. They have the movie Chef running on repeat most of the time

I heard downtown is sketchy at night. Also a lot of the restaurants are so far away, the public transportation system sucks so a car rental is sort of required.
