‘Discoveries’

Pacific Diner

WHY Hearty omelets, calamari and eggs, chicken-fried steak. WHAT Of San Pedro’s several old-school breakfast diners, this is probably the most revered, more for its longevity and funky charm than its food—although the egg dishes go down just fine. WHO Cops, old longshoremen and assorted crusty San Pedro folks. 3821 S. Pacific Ave., San Pedro, [...]

Kitchen Outfitters

WHY For professional knife sharpening in Long Beach. WHAT Drop off your knives (standard, serrated, ceramic, Japanese) and shears by 2 p.m. on Monday, and you’ll get them back sharpened and/or repaired by 5 p.m., thanks to the Perfect Edge mobile truck. While you wait, you’ll have fun shopping for kitchen gear in this Naples [...]

Grounds Bakery & Café

WHY For the best bagels in Long Beach; good breads and muffins, too. WHAT Just-chewy-enough California-style bagels (that is, large and relatively light instead of small and dense) are the main draw at this large, open bakery and café; try the onion, the poppyseed and the pumpkin. Also worthwhile are the muffins, the sourdough breads [...]

La Creperie Café

WHY For generous, delicious sweet and savory crèpes in a campily ornate setting. WHAT Belmont Shore is packed with restaurants, and sometimes they all seem to blend into one another. But this place stands out for its over-the-top décor: huge mirrors, huge chandeliers, velvet curtains and giant Moulin Rouge mural. It’s also notable for its [...]

Gioia Cheese

WHY Fresh burrata, made every single weekday, and other lovely soft Italian cheeses. WHAT Vito Girardi is a third-generation cheesemaker and the man responsible for most of the burrata you see in L.A.’s best restaurants. It is our good fortune that he also sells to the public—not just burrata, but also mozzarella, ricotta, mascarpone, affumicata, [...]

Library Coffeehouse

WHY Perfectly fine coffee, respectable pastries and light meals, free WiFi and a very comfortable funky-chic setting in a great neighborhood. WHAT A longstanding Belmont Heights hangout, the Library is large and rambling, stuffed with pleasantly shabby Victorian furniture and bookcases stocked with used titles for sale. WHO The young ‘n quirky, often with a [...]

Authentic Korean Dumplings

WHY For the steamed King dumpling (a big daddy filled with beef or pork and either leeks, kim chee or rice noodles), the pan-fried dumplings and the kim chee dumplings. WHAT This Koreatown shack (really—it’s an actual shack) lives up to its name and serves authentic dumplings, but they’re as much Chinese as they are [...]

Amer’s Falafel

WHY They do crispy right—even to the point of packaging takeout falafel in a separate paper bag to preserve that lightning-fast fry. WHAT The falafel doesn’t hit the oil until you order, and the result is a revelation: thin, ultra-crisp exteriors with succulent steaming insides. Go with a sandwich, or, better yet, order as a [...]

Panos Char Broiler

WHY All-around excellent fast food: tender, tasty gyros; crisp falafel; savory souvlaki; pita or regular burgers; good fries. WHAT This long-established dive serves great, cheap Greek-Medi-American comfort food, and it serves it fast. Hours can be inconsistent, so don’t be shocked if it’s closed. 16045 Victory Blvd., Van Nuys, 818.780.4041 B, L & early D [...]

Tasty Garden

WHY Exceptional menu, cross-generational clientele. WHAT The fare at this lively, Hong Kong—style coffee shop is well made, fantastically tasty, mostly Chinese and definitely eclectic. Crowds come for the filet mignon with pepper and basil and (no kidding) the peanut butter pizza. WHO Seniors at tea time, clubbers in the wee hours. 228 W. Valley [...]
