Los Angeles, I'm Yours

L.A. doesn't like to play by the rules. It's the land that gave birth to new-wave food trucks and pop-up restaurants, and these days your next mind-blowing meal here could come from anywhere: that burrito shack on the corner, a secret sushi spot or an old-school deli near the park. From Roy Choi to Ludo Lefebvre, a new generation of talented Angelenos are cutting ties with convention and drawing inspiration from the diverse neighborhoods that surround them. Having access to some of the highest quality produce in the world doesn't hurt either. Skip the Walk of Fame and use this guide for a true taste of Los Angeles—whether it's electrifying Thai in WeHo, bustling KBBQ in Koreatown or Downtown's subterranean speakeasies.
