Best Downtown Lunch Buffet – Azalea is located inside the Japanese New Otani Hotel in Little Tokyo, actually, but just a block away from City Hall. So, essentially, it is in downtown. This restaurant serves weekday "World Cuisine" lunch buffet. World Cuisine means different "nationality" food for every day of the week. For Thursdays, Azalea serves Filipino food and this was the day that I visited this restaurant. On that day, they had this excellent pork ribs. I believed it was boiled then deep fried. Kinda like how a crispy pata is cooked. The restaurant also served different types of green salads and mango salads. The mango salad is Filipino style but hte green salads were not 'cause Filipinos traditionally do not eat raw salads. However, the green salads were also good. Back to the main entrees: they also served noodles and breaded fish fillets. The latter ones were just so-so. There was also quiet a selection of desserts--some Filipino, some not. Overall, I enjoyed my visit. Wish they offered this during weekends.
Perfect place to take a person named Al. – The menu is tailored to suit the Citys distinctly conservative tastes. The Beer Garden is truly an oasis in the crowds of Downtown Los Angeles. Dishes such as traditional Azalea Luncheon Buffet and Crunchy California Roll and Beep Fried Baby Sardine are so scrumptious that they even distract from the fantastic views. All dishes are exceptionally well made if somewhat on the pricey side and there is plenty of Alcohol for those seeking to impress either a date, client, or anyone named Al.
If you are looking for a train or maybe an extra 3rd person.
Beer Garden is the place where fantasy can be reality.
