Places to eat like a local in Los Angeles

Jump to last reply

When I travel, I like to eat in places that are frequented by the locals rather than just restaurants that are targeted at travelers. So, I got to thinking, what are some places that we eat with our own friends and families that we would recommend to travelers visiting the area?

Since I live in Culver City, I will start there: Tender Greens in downtown Culver City for an excellent salad; S&W Diner for breakfast, if you don't mind waiting in line; Celadon near Marina del Rey for Thai food; Green Peas for a good soup, salad or sandwich (including vegan and vegeterarian options; Versailles for wonderful Cuban food.

Please add to the list, with restaurants stretching from Simi Valley to Pasadena to San Pedro to Downey and everything in-between and further out.
