The ambiance was lively with many options to choose from. The pupusa shop was awesome with the choice of 3 pupusa types for vegetarians - jalapeno, Spinach and beans. Tables are busy but it is a floating population so you will always find a place. Easy access from belasco theater (bus down from the corner of hill and olympic takes... More

So my husband was very happy with the food, but I more enjoyed the experience. The food was just ok, nothing spectacular, but it's definitely worth the visit. It definitely isn't an easy place to navigate and eat with an infant.

Parking is $9-10 dollars, you can circle forever or bite the bullet and grab the closest parking lot - you're here anyways so splurge! Take your time and walk around the market... see what type of food you wish to try... then hunt for a table. You will find plenty of tables around except most are occupied on the ground... More

Did a walk thru after visiting the Bradbury building which is across the street. Many different eateries under one roof, including Eggslut, several Mexican places, and others. Also a couple of fruit and veg vendors. Worth a quick stop if you're hungry.

So many great food options. My favorite is the oddly aggressively named Egg Sl*t. (Trip Advisor won't let me say the real word) Delicious egg sandwiches. This place has a line as soon as the doors open. But so worth the wait. Eat at the counter for a communal experience.

So much choice, all looked inviting. We had the tacos - seafood and chicken. They were so fresh, great balance of flavour and spice. Loved the atmosphere, plenty of tables to sit at. Liked the bar option outside to have a drink after a feed. Tried the beers at the brewery. Loved the craft beer options. Great place to eat.

As the sign says.. cheap eats. You can choose from pasta, burgers, wood fired pizza, Chinese, Japanese, Salvador ian, Mexican and a few more. I lined up for Tomas Mexican food. I had a hard time deciding and with the gorditas gone, ended up with tacos. The carnitas/al pastor was a good choice. 3 tacos for $3.50 and very good.... More

Famed for its instragrammable neon lights signages. Grand Central is filled with stalls and hub for a unique foodcrawl experience. Eggslut may be overrated by hipsters but the fastest selling one.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
