The City of Angels, famed for The Hollywood Sign, The Walk of Fame, Sunset Boulevard, shopping on Rodeo Drive and of course, spotting the odd celebrity house. But there’s more to Los Angeles than just the entertainment industry.
In fact, the state is home to some of the most delicious places to eat. And if you’re on the hunt for a place to bite into something delicious in LA, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites.
Here’s our guide to the best restaurants in LA:
The Farm of Beverley Hills
Serving happy customers for the past twenty years, The Farm has earned its reputation as one of the places to go for the best brunch in Los Angeles. Try their buttermilk pancakes, a favourite of serial brunch-goers, or opt for the Farm Breakfast Burrito, for the true American dream.
Breakfast is served until 3pm so there’s no need to get up early for this one. Happy Hour starts at 3pm until 6pm, so be savvy and book a table around 2.30pm then turn your brunch into a boozy one for half the price. And the even better news is, it’s located in the heart of Beverly Hills, so you can shop until you drop on Melrose Avenue afterwards.
Food trucks in LA
Known as the food truck capital of the world, you don’t need to walk far to feel overwhelmed by the amount of options you’ll find. We want to make sure you make the most delicious choice when dining on street food, so after careful deliberation we’ve decided which we think you should try.
Simply pick your cuisine, then head over for a meal on wheels:
El Chato Taco Truck
With a mouth-watering variety of Mexican food to choose from, sample your way through the menu with their $1 mini tacos. El Chato is known to have some of the best dishes in the states.
Cousins Maine Lobster
There are two types of lobster roll on the menu here, Connecticut and Maine. The Connecticut is warm and smothered in butter, while the Maine is served chilled and topped off with mayo. Both are served on a New England-style roll. Which one will you prefer?
The Grilled Cheese Truck
What’s more American than a Grilled Cheese Sandwich? If you find out, let us know!
A staple dish in pretty much every American sitcom and one of the best comfort foods, bite into cheesy goodness here.
Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream
Stay cool on a warm LA day with a cone from this portable ice cream parlour. With the original food truck based in Brooklyn, Van Leeuwen’s was instantly popular when it drove its second set of wheels into LA. With so many scrumptious flavours to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice, they even have vegan options.

For those exploring all parts of the state, 71 Above is arguably one of the most beautiful downtown LA restaurants. Worth a visit for the atmosphere and interior alone, the menu proves to be one for foodies wanting a delicious meal in a breath-taking setting. It’s excellent for date night…
Expect enchanting plates created by chef Vartan Abgaryan that match the stunning 360-degree views. Thrill seekers should opt for the Edge Table, a one-of-a-kind dining experience with seats at the edge of the building facing Santa Monica, Malibu, and West Los Angeles. What more could you want from this DTLA restaurant?
Morton’s is proof you shouldn’t knock a chain restaurant before you try it. With 78 outlets across the country this is a firm favourite with many Americans. The LA branch, located just a mile away from the famed Sunset Strip and Rodeo Drive, is known to be one of the best steakhouses in Los Angeles.
Cooked to perfection the steaks are excellent value for money, serving prime cuts of beef always. And with no small portions in sight, diners should be prepared to leave here with very few thoughts about their next meal. If you do happen to save room for dessert we recommend Morton's Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake.
Famed for offering its guests an authentic Indian dining experience, Electric Karma has long since been described as one of the best Indian restaurants in Los Angeles. Speciality food is made fresh daily using traditional ingredients for a little taste of Asia in LA.
If you’re booking with a large group, ask if you can dine on their patio that features traditional murals that cover the walls. There are four large tables positioned low to the ground, with scattered pillows to keep you comfy. Sit back and order tasty dishes from the kitchen ran by two brothers.
Order a range of starters to share with the table and pick your main from the list of Karma Specials. You can thank us later.
