Recs near Hollywood Boulevard
Not having a car in Hollywood is not a problem at all, because the Red Line subway runs down Hollywood Blvd.
Hollywood is also rich in great restaurants. Here are my recs, depending on what you want:
Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles
Get the chicken and waffles (duh!). The waffles are amazing.
Thai: Ruen Pair
Amazing thai food in the heart of thai town. I like the papaya salad, shrimp cakes, pad thai, etc. I also hear they do excellent fried morning glories, by have not tried them. It's really yummy, cheap, and closes very late (like 4am).
Zankou: Get shawerma sandwiches or some chicken with the fluffy white garlic paste from heaven. It's delicious.
If you don't mind walking a little...
close to the corner of Sunset blvd and la brea, there is Mashti Malones ice cream, which makes incredible, exotic ice creams (check out the thread on them currently active)
