I have a quick trip to LA and wanted some advice.
Is doing a walk-in on a Tuesday night for Son of a Gun possible?
also, anything amazing lunch wise in Anaheim or Hollywood?
S of a G has a communal table and if you are alone I don't think it will be a problem to find a seat.
Hollywood has some of the best Thai restaurants in the US. I'm very fond of the boat noodles at Sapp Coffee Shop http://sapp.menutoeat.com/ in Thai town (really east Hollywood) but there are other very good places like Pa Ord http://www.yelp.com/biz/pa-ord-noodle... and Jitlada http://jitladala.wordpress.com/ for their Southern Thai menu dishes.
Tacos San Pedro in Anaheim
carne asada flautas are really good here
other favorites include:
carne asada anything
menudo on sat/sun
Hollywood lunch... Umami Burger just off Sunset Blvd (try the hatch burger)
or Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles, the president's LA favorite. The Obama Special 3 wings (waffle or potato salad or french fries).
If you want to spend a little more for some great pizza, Pizzeria Mozza has nice counter seating.
I stopped by the new Stella Barra Pizzeria near the Hollywood Arclight recently and was impressed. Very pretty inside (dark woods, industrial fixtures, open kitchen in the back), super spacious, great bar right in the middle, solid service and tons of quality baked goods made fresh on the premises every AM. Of course the pizzas are the reason to come-- foldable but with a chewier outer edge, which I like-- and that crazy-good burrata appetizer.
