Young Dong Restaurant

Young Dong Restaurant

Los Angeles, CA

This place is awesome. I like the soup the best.

Swadesh

Swadesh

Los Angeles, CA

Very authentic and affordable ($30 for more than enough food for 4 people). It is cafeteria style so you order at the counter and seat yourself. The fish curry, tandoori chicken and roti are great.

El Jalapeno Taqueria

El Jalapeno Taqueria

Los Angeles, CA

El Jalapeño is a taco shack that caters to those with a palate oriented toward the more adventurous tacos: lengua (beef tongue), buche (pork stomach), and cabeza (beef head). The suadero (beef brisket) is also really spectacular, as well as the alambres, which is meat sauteed with peppers and onions.

Kyochon Chicken

Irresistably crispy, this Korean Fried chicken joint has a fun modern atmosphere. My go-to favorite are the honey wings
