Eating near UCLA

We have just arrived in LA from Australia and want to go out tonight to have a nice meal and, hopefully, keep ourselves from falling asleep due to jet lag. We are interested in all foods so all suggestions near UCLA are welcome. We have a car so getting somewhere a little out of the way is fine.

  1. Great Custom made pizza with wonderful ingredients at 800 Degrees. Always a line out the door but well worth it. Lot's of copies around but this is the real deal. Open till 2am nightly.

      Or maybe somewhere on Sawtelle (Tsujita Annex, Kiriko, Seoul Sausage) if that's not too far for you. Or even CH fave Shunji a bit more SW.

                Both a great fried chicken sandwich or smokey fried chicken plate. Both are really really great. Fresh made to order donuts for dessert too.

              Have you had Emporium Thai recently CB? I haven't had it in a while and might order delivery from it in the near future.

                Maybe 3 months ago. Very good, especially for the area. It's no NIght + Market or Jitlada by any means but blows the locals away.

            2. Good Chinese food at The Mandarin Kitchen on Westwood Blvd.

                  Monte Alban is a great suggestion for foreign visitors (unless the are visiting from Oaxaca, I guess).
