It’s time for the 818 to shine
After finding the essential restaurants in Fairfax, Downtown, Silver Lake, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, the South Bay, and Venice, we now take another look to the Valley, an area that was once considered somewhat of a dining desert. That’s more than just a simple misnomer though, as the vast areas of northern Los Angeles actually offer a wealth of exceptional cuisines, from Thai to Japanese to everyday American fare.
Previous iterations of this map have included Middle Eastern favorites Carnival and Joe’s Falafel that make way this edition for Syrian staple Kobee Factory and food blogger darling Hummus Yummy. The most authentic Thai street food experience outside of Bangkok also makes the cut, along with North Hollywood’s landmark barrel bar and a Granada Hills breakfast classic.
Presented now, in no particular order, are the most essential eats in the 818 right now.
