The Fields LA (new food hall)


#1

Article from LA Mag. Great roster so far. They need some type of dessert or ice cream to round out the offerings. Chris Bianco might open up a Roman style pizza place? That would be great



#2

Has anyone been?

Food still need work, but they’re constantly trying to make it better
edit: i’ve had it, went there for dinner twice, it’s a nice space, parking is free when there aren’t any games at the stadium.
i think Chad Colby’s Roman pizza was good but when i went, they weren’t heating the pizza so they were sitting under the heat lamp the next time i went they were heating them up when asked. so…it feels like they’re changing and adjusting accordingly.
mind you, i went for dinner so lunch crowd might be different. At dinner it was pretty empty so that could also account for something. a friend said the food was better during lunch.

Yep! We’ve been several times as we are FC season ticket holders and live in the area. We’ve tried most of the items and really like them.

Personally I find the Roman Pizza the best of its type in L.A., I like even better than Il Romanista in terms of taste and toppings. They also give you these AMAZING chiles in oil that really makes the pizza. The sandwiches are also really good. If you’ve had the Foccacia at Chi Spaca, you know what I am talking about. SO SOFT but still sturdy. They look austere, but good Italian food often is. It really is how it all comes together…

We have Akko Port is pretty good. Their flatbread is amazing. Now, I prefer the wraps at Madcapra and Dune, but they are still much better than most out there,

The Burritos La Palma are ON POINT!!! So delicious. The gringas from the new El Pastor are super goey (and taste so good with those Chiles in Oil) and the Fish Tacos from Conis are very satisfying… but don’t have that crunch that Ricky’s has… but very few places do…

A wonderful surprise was the Jambalaya from Barbara Jean. The bars we well stocked and friendly. The outside beer garden has EXCELLENT soft serve. Also the Waffle Fries at the Chicken Sandwich place are good… but they are the same one Soul Sausage has in the Stadium…

There is validated parking. Most items are well priced and they bus the tables. It’s a great place to do some remote laptop work, especially in the evening… There are some misses (The salads are CRAZY priced and the Dumplings at Ms Chi are meh) but we’ve always been happy with our meals there overall… especially if we get a slice…

Gringas and Fish Tacos (Italian Chiles)

$6 Roman Pizza and $14 Burrata Salad

Mortadella Sandwich with Parm cream

that pizza for $6 looks super steep?

The mortadella sandwich though… I’d eat the hell out of that.


#6

$6 is in line with the slices at Eatly (A little cheaper for some) and SO much better. It’s also fairly large and those dark spots are two LARGE sausage patties. Very satisfying.

The sandwiches are $9 which is less than most fancy sandwiches nowadays.

There is a soft serve machine at the outdoor patio bar. The twice I tried it, the flavors were Salted Caramel & Vanilla which swirled very nicely. I think they use Strauss as the base.


#8

Also they offer several types of baked goods in the first case at the north entrance. I haven’t tried any of them because I would rather have pizza.

Went there on Sunday evening.

Vegan Mapo Tofu from Ms. Chi. I liked how this was not as soupy as many other mapo tofu bowls I’ve had. Nice, balanced heat.

East LA fried chicken sandwich from CJ Boyds. Outstanding. Loads of heat throughout each bite that crept up on you. The bread was a bit dry but it otherwise did its job of holding everything together.

No LAFC game so we basically had the place to ourselves. There was a soccer match at the Coliseum (“Super Clasico”) though that didn’t seem to contribute much in terms of crowds.


#10

We really enjoyed that Mapo! Well seasoned and nice portion. Our favorite thing so far at Ms. Chi beside the fuffy tea…

Sad to hear that the folks at the Coliseum seemed to bypass it. It’s super hidden and I’ve mentioned to them they need some sort of signage around the complex.
