Lunch near Wilshire and Hauser

amascia Jan 11, 2010 09:27 AM

I'm in town on business and was hoping to get some recommendations for lunch near Wilshire and Hauser (where I am for a mtg) or somewhere in West Hollywood. Any cuisine and price point is appreciated.

    Will you have a car? If so then I recommend Parks Korean BBQ (about 3.5 miles from your location).


    Or, if you would like to try out some of the Oaxacan food available in that area (great black mole over a tamal) then: http://www.guelaguetzarestaurante.com/ which is about the same distance to the Olympic Blvd. location (which has much better parking than the 8th St location - which is closer to your starting point).

    3014 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90006

    3337 1/2 W 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90005

      assuming you have a car...? it really depends how far you're willing to travel, and what you feel like eating!

      initial thoughts within about 1/2 mile:
      Umami Burger
      Luna Park
      Flora Kitchen

        if you have a car:
        Angeli on Melrose; it's not very crowded over lunch and the food is delish.
        Angelini on Beverly
        on Third is Izakaya Katsu-ya. a fun business lunch place. you may need to call ahead for a reservation.

          For inexpensive tacos and salsas, there also is Chulada Grill at San Vicente and Hauser. I just go for the tacos and the pico de gallo, but they also have Oaxacan food. Chulada Grill also delivers: http://www.chuladagrill.com/

          I also second Guelaguetza. Get the chicken tamales with mole negro.

          At Olympic and Fairfax are a collection of Ethiopian restaurants. Messob is my favorite.
