When it comes to food, LA has a lot to offer. If you love options, than you’ll certainly want to make your way to the Grand Central Market in Los Angeles. The market has been located in the heart of downtown for decades, and today, it does a great job of featuring food vendors serving up flavors from around the world. With so many options, you might not know where to start. Check out some of these best vendors in the market.
If you’re looking for tacos, head straight to Tacos Tumbras a Tomas. There will likely be a line when you get there, but it’s for good reason. With lots of meat options from goat to carne asada, you can’t go wrong, but do yourself a favor and order the carnitas. Top it with salsa verde and you’ll be sure to leave happy.
If instead of tacos you’re looking for a delicious sandwich, than Wexler’s is the place for you. In fact, at this location, you’ll find some of the best pastrami in all of Los Angeles, and that’s saying something since Jewish delis are not few and far between in the city. Here you can grab the original sandwich with pastrami and mustard on rye or switch it up and get a sandwich just to your liking. Whatever your choose, the fresh meat and bread will treat you well.
If you’re looking for a sandwich that’s a bit more nostalgic, head to DTLA Cheese. Here, you’ll find grown up grilled cheese sandwiches that will remind you why you loved these sandwiches as a kid. Their three cheddar blend features two cheeses from Wisconsin and the third from the UK, after that, they mix the blend with fresh, local mozzarella to add to the goo-factor of this delectable sandwich. Served between two perfectly toasted slices of brioche, you really can’t go wrong.
For BBQ, head over to Horse Thief BBQ where you’ll enjoy classic, Texan style BBQ right in the middle of downtown LA. Their brisket is smoked for up to 16 hours and they also feature pulled pork and fried chicken sandwiches. Don’t forget their incredible sides like their potato salad, coleslaw or mac n cheese.
