Lunch near 3rd and Fig

I work near the corner of 3rd and Figueroa, and have found the area to be something of a lunchtime culinary wasteland. Anyone know any good, cheap takeout joints nearby? Anything good in the Bonaventure?
Thanks, Jake

  1. that's pretty far south of DTLA. If you're walking then no idea. All those shops in the ciudad plaza? if you have a car, I'd take it to jtown, or if you're on the dash b route, i'd take that to jtown.

    1. Inside the Bonaventure is a place called the olive branch (the level where bonaventure brewing company is). Not a place to go to if you are in a rush but you can get some good and fresh chicken, shawrma, hummus, tabouli, and salad for about $5.

      Bonaventure brewing company has good bar food too. Any one been to the Pho place in the Bonaventure? It looks like a burger king that sells Pho.

      Also, the Italian place in the Ciudad plaza has a good pizza salad combo. They give you a small pizza and a tiny salad for about $6

      1. Jake,
        Try the new pizza joint just north of Sunset on Fig, east side of the street. I think it is called LA Pizza works, but I'm not sure. Great empanadas and salads, and a nice spin on pizza. It is a take out place mostly, just a couple tables outside and a stand-up bar inside.
