The best places for food and drinks in Los Angeles' Highland Park on York Blvd. and beyond.
You don't have to go to East LA to get a good fish taco. Via Mar has one battered to crispy perfection. They also do a mean ceviche.
Best huaraches in town, plus a wet burrito that won't quit. Try the adobada taco and huitlacoche quesadilla. Great prices, great salsa bar.
Best burger in town, according to me. Truffled grilled cheese on thick cut bread is a revelation. Both go great with a local brew on tap.
On weekends, they serve some of the best carnitas in LA. Choose from 8 different varieties of tender, juicy, slow-cooked pork. Delicioso!
The smokey salsa is the unsung hero here. Veggie burritos aren't bad either. Carne asada tacos and quesadillas are crave-worthy.
Bodacious coffee, tasty pastries, friendly staff. Best breakfast includes fried eggs with black beans, plantains and chunk of queso fresco
Frozen yogurt and ice cream made fresh daily with organic ingredients and agave nectar. Can’t get enough of banana, alfalfa, or blueberry.
Gourmet burgers in Highland Park. Try the house burger with pancetta, cheese tots and the pickle plate. Turkey burger is the best in town.
Oh, no big deal, just the best ice cream in LA. Airy, delicious scoops of Salty Caramel Oreo, Guinness Chocolate, Brown Bread…etc, etc, etc.
Vietnamese comfort food.Noodle salad is good, but pork confit is outrageous.Start with the garlic fries, try a pot pie and order a house soda.
Solid red sauce Italian.Start with the meatballs pomodoro and try the Orecchiette with sausage and kale. Burrata pizza is simple and divine
Brunch, lunch or dinner. It’s all good. Don’t miss garbanzo bean salad, fish tacos with mango salsa, or tender barbacoa with pickled onions
