I decided to stay at Shelter Hotel, a boutique hotel, located in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles.
My first stop Grand Central Market, which is a great space that has all kinds of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, food stores, bakeries, and dessert makers all under one roof.
My first stop Sarita's Pupuseria, Salavadorian food.
Two pupus-one with bean filing the other with cheese and pork with cabbage and carrots.
Followed by Berliner Weiss beer with pirogis at Golden Road Brewery.
Angel Flight is across the road.
On the plane I was reading the in-flight magazine and they mentioned a cool new restaurant in Koreatown Here's Looking At You, so I checked it out-interesting fusion fare, great service and obviously very popular-packed on a rainy night.
Stacciatella Cheese: pepita, yuzu koshi, perilla, with charred bread-excellent. I may have to come back.
Beer Belly for some craft beer.
Korean food court.
Frank & Hank excellent dive bar.
There's another fun bar at Hotel Normandie.
