I quite like La Cevicheria and Ham Ji Park, but otherwise don’t have a ton else to add. Out of curiosity, though, is this for a project of one kind or another? And I assume you are aware of the J. Gold thing? ( http://www.laweekly.com/news/the-year-i-ate-pico-boulevard-2129883 )


Teriyaki House Pico, of course.


Did you want to limit the region of Pico, cuz it’s kinda long… :wink:

Ice cream: Sweet Rose Creamery.

Hi @Nemroz - Didn’t you used to go to a tiny soul food spot that closed for remodel? What happened to that place?

My 2 Cents? Is it closed? Yea i like it.


For my area of Pico, John O’Groats for pancakes and other things of a breakfast nature. Also Sotto for pizza, pasta porkchop, etc.


Sotto, Foster Freeze, Rae’s, and god I miss Torafuku.


I feel that Torafuku’s replacement, Harikawa, has even more focused cooking, with that same great kamado rice that Torafuku featured.

Really?? I heard tepid things when they first opened and was so sad, I loved Torafuku. I was even a regular and the sushi chef knew me and was so nice.

I’ll give Hariwaka a try, good to hear about the rice, that rice was excellent.

El Grullense - better than King Taco

The Spot - fried chicken and waffles (and pineapple cobbler)

Happy Taco - carne asada fries

Olsons Scandinavian Deli - shrimp sandwich or caviar and egg sandwich. yum.


No. I am always up and down pico Blvd, from downtown to the beach and thought this would be a good idea. Also, to do other streets, Olympic, Wilshire etc…

I’m going to start trying one of these a month. Trying to keep my weight down. :slight_smile:

What about taco trucks? The one across from ralphs in mid city?


Stevie’s is reopening on Pico. They are hiring too.
