24-hour food

Does anyone have suggestions for the best 24-hour food in LA? This could be diners, bakeries, street food, even sno-cones -- as long as they're serving til the break of dawn, I'm interested. The wackier, the better. Thoughts?

        The PDC in Santa Monica is also open 24/7. The downtown location closes for a few hours each month -- I think it's 2a-6a on the first Sunday, but don't hold me to that. The SM branch may also close once a month, but I don't know, because I haven't gotten stuck there, as I did a few years ago trying to get into the one on W. 6th with visions of that great filet and eggs in mind.

          Most 24-hour places have a policy of closing for a few overnight hours once a month or so, for routine maintenance and to give the kitchen a thorough going-over.

          It's usually not scheduled, and it's damned annoying when you hit it on that one day.

      2. Is Dupar's still open 24 hours?

        1. BCD Tofu House for the win! Many locations, as it's a chain, but where else can you get Korean soft-tofu at all hours of the morning? Only the Wilshire, Western and Garden Grove locations are 24/7.

          Here's their website:

          BCD Tofu House
          3575 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010

          BCD Tofu House
          869 S Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90005

          BCD Tofu House Restaurant
          9520 Garden Grove Blvd Ste 9, Garden Grove, CA 92844

          1. Los Tacos in West Hollywood for greasy Mexican food.
