Returning to L.A. for the first time since cutting out meat (not including seafood) a couple months ago. On my itinerary are Gjusta, Otafuku, and Holbox. Of the three, I’ve only eaten at Gjusta.
I’m mostly looking for affordably priced (preferably under $25 before tax and tip), new-to-me recs that are close enough to Westchester/Ladera, from the Westside to South Bay. I love Coni’ Seafood in Inglewood and Simply Wholesome on Slauson, but I’ll return another time. I’m not particular about broths/seasonings that have animal ingredients (and I might end up blowing it all with a cemita poblana de milanesa ) but pescatarian friendly recs are appreciated. I’ll be down for a longer trip in August, so I’ll keep in mind any places I don’t get around to visiting this trip. Thanks in advance!
