Discover why L.A.’s dining scene is blazing hot. Come out west with us for L.A. Week at Tasting Table.
For people passionate about food, Grand Central Market, a nearly 100-year-old Downtown L.A. institution, has become a must-visit. It houses a mix of long-standing vendors like the Cantonese China Cafe and Mexican groceries selling a variety of mole pastes, as well as more recent additions like cult breakfast sandwich spot Eggslut and Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson’s Middle Eastern-inspired Madcapra. The market has a half-outdoor, half-indoor feel to it and pulses with energy during the day with diners and shoppers.
By evening, things used to settle as the vendors closed up shop. But starting in early June, that changed, with the market hosting nightly events ranging from live music to trivia to drag queen bingo hosted by Bingo Boy, which Angelenos might know from West Hollywood’s iconic Hamburger Mary’s.
We stopped by earlier this month to enjoy some bingo and bites—and to see what happens when the sun goes down at Grand Central Market. Check out a virtual tour below.
