5 Los Angeles: Cultural Dining Destinations

Food in L.A. is hard to equate. There are flavors from all across the world, representing sweet to sour, and definitely tons of umami in-between. Demanding patrons whose palate must be satisfied are as routine as construction delays on the 405. That is why I’ve compiled 5 delectable foodie hang-outs to help you quickly answer, “where should we eat?” These affordable restaurants will fill you up, without breaking your bank account.

Manuel’s Original El Tepeyac Cafe –
812 N Evergreen Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90033

El Tepeyac has been featured on food shows such as “Best Bars in America” and “Man vs Food” for its signature burritos. If you are absolutely starving, then pull up a chair and get ready for 5lbs of tantalizing burrito that challengers attempt every day here. Perhaps you’re hungrier? Don’t worry, they have much much more to offer. From classic horchata to quesadillas that have cheese for days, you will find yourself in an L.A. staple that proves quantity and quality can co-exist.


Philippe’s the Original –
1001 N Alameda St
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Philippe’s is the home to French dipped sandwiches and has been seen on the show “No Reservations.” Unlike other eateries in this big city, this one actually created its trademark dish. In 1918, Philippe Mathieu accidentally dropped a French roll into the roasting pan which resulted in the creation of the iconic French dipped sandwich. While the french roll can be found in any Ralph’s deli, only this restaurant can lay claim to creating a style of food found all across the world. The prices stay low and the lines can get long, but look at the secret beauty of this L.A. gem…free parking.


Seoul Sausage –
11313 Mississippi Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90025

Seoul Sausage has been seen by millions as a food truck, actually, as the best food truck on season 3 of Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race.” Stop on by their home-base here in Sawtelle, where you can find mouthwatering burgers, flavored rice balls, and definitely the best sausages in the area. This establishment revamps Korean BBQ and finds a way to make appetizing Asian cuisine on-the-go. It is definitely worth checking out this restaurant that exposes new audiences to the insatiable taste of Korean. Parking is tricky but manageable in this area.


Giuliano’s Delicatessen & Bakery –
1700 Aviation Blvd
Redondo Beach, CA 90278

Giuliano’s has been an essential part of L.A. (county) for more than 60 years. The bread at Giuliano’s is made at Giuliano’s! Unlike other places where day old bread passes for the par, here you will taste the difference. The portions of classic Italiano entrees are tremendous. You not only can find pastas, sandwiches, and pizza, but a stocked deli with shelves filled with other food and drink as well. It is hard to place what makes this restaurant/store/deli irresistible yet so charming. Perhaps, the friendly staff make this establishment gain a couple points or maybe it is the desserts that are so amazing that you may ponder living off. Whatever the answer may be, you’ll gladly pontificate over a healthy hoagie at this delicious delicatessen.


Oi Asian Fusion –
7242 Canoga Ave
Los Angeles, CA 91303

Oi Asian Fusion is the place for when you want Asian but have no idea what type to eat. Some have heard of Oi through the food blog of “Los Angeles Magazine;” this tasty find features flavors from the Philippines, Japan, Hawaii, Korea, and classic American, that are all fused into meals as unique as the restaurant’s name. Where else can you find delicious pork belly and umami gravy bowls sitting on the same menu as dynamite sweet fries, adobo bowls, karaage fried chicken buns, and loco (moco) burger bowls. This is the ideal spot if you want to impress your friends and colleagues with one of L.A.’s best kept secrets.
