Quest for good food: LA food-lovers, where should we go?


We will be visiting LA for the first time from Chicago. We are foodies and have great appreciation for ALL types of food. We will pay (we'll be coming from a meal at TFL and have been to some of the best restaurants around), but we will also wait in line for a greasy brown bag of deliciousness. We have great pride in Chicago and all the wonderful finds it has to offer an adventurous food lover. I know we could just google some popular places, but I would love to hear from some LA folks who feel strongly about their food favorites... So, natives, anyplace you can't live without?....
Thanks for the time to reply! We're looking forward to coming to your city!!
