Downtown LA-Musts

My wife is going to explore downtown on foot on Monday. Other than Philippes and the Grand Central Market what are the musts foodwise.

  1. I suggest walking around Little Tokyo and buying pastry/desserts at Mikawaya and other surrounding bakeries.

    1. El PARIAN for the Birria

      1. Izayoi on central @ 2nd is some of the best food downtown. Daikokuya on 1st is good. The coffee shop on the Alley on 4th 1/2 block west of Main is an underground local place. How hungry is she?

        1. Not another "must" just a Phillipe's must: the lamb sandwich, double dipped, with a healthy shmear of the mustard.

          1. Ditto the rec for Little Tokyo.

            Also suggest a scamper through Chinatown.
