Going on a lunch field trip to Ang. Hts (Echo Park)

My co-worker and I usually eat iat our respective desks, but once a month or so like to venture out to visit (and appreciate) the sights and flavors of LA. (Last time we went to "MILK." I "needed" molasses cookies and got a great lunch to boot.)

I recently got lost going home and found the coolest area I've seen in ages -- Angelino Heights in Echo Park. It looked like a scene from the Music Man or Mary Poppins in the middle of nowhere. (Well, not nowhere -- it can be pretty crazy in Echo Park.) I've since read up on this "pocket's" history and it is fascinating. So, my question for you experts is: If you were going there on a "lunch field trip," where would you have lunch?!!

Thanks to all -- and by the way, I heartily recommend field trips!

    1. I'm not sure about Lunch but I'd go to the churro truck afterwards and pick up 8 churros for $3.

      1. Do you want to specifically eat in Angelino Heights, or do you want surrounding areas like Echo Park?

        1. The Park would be a good choice. Rodeo Grill for informal Mexican.
