Pho: Golden Deli in San Gabriel. If that restaurant is full (which it routinely is), hit up Vietnam House in the diagonal plaza. I think they're owned by brothers? And the menus are exactly the same. Cheap, delicious food.

I lived in san marino for the first 20 years of my life and I've never been to this place. Guess I have to check it out.

My favorite stores have all been mentioned, but as to my favorite eats/drinks:

Food:

Sona (One of the few LA eateries I'd consider world-class, and about as unpretntious as they come)
Comme Ca (Not the most authentic bistro, but always great food and a great atmosphere)
Le Petit Greek (on a really nice, out of the way street in Hancock Park, pretty good traditional Greek fare)
Lucques (Can't exactly classify the cuisine, but very, very good)
Boa (Others will prefer Cut or Mastros for steaks, but I prefer the SM location of BOA)
Katsu Ya (the Studio City location, not the SBE offshoots, awesome sushi and a legend)
Millese (A bit stuffy and over the top, but amazing food)
Soi 7 (Probably not the best Thai in LA, but I love the atmosphere and decor of the place, and the food's good)
8oz (Known for their burgers, I love the shortrib grilled cheese)
Bottega Louie (Food is really good if not particularly creative, pizzas are awesome, dining room is amazing)
Panini Cafe (5 star it's not, but great for a quick lunch in either BH or downtown)
Little Door (Great Med food, nice atmosphere, love the multiple dining rooms)

Drink:

Library Bar (Downtown, love the cucumber martini, really chill place)
La Descarga (Cuban rum bar in East Hollywood, awesome atmosphere)
Thompson Hotel in BH (Rooftop bar has nice atmosphere and view, drinks suck, come loaded)
7 Grand (If you love whiskey, you can't miss this one)
Roger Room (Speakeasy style bar, but I've had much better (and cheaper) prohibition-era cocktails in Chicago (where else?))

Coffee:

Spring for Coffee (downtown)
Luxxe Caffe (Santa Monica or Brentwood)
Espresso Profetta (Westwood)

El Carmen (This small Mexican dive on 3rd is not to be missed, great place to get in trouble)

Al pastor tostada -- El Taurino in LA


Fried chicken -- Furaibo in Gardena (I think the one in LA closed?)


Ramen with pork -- Santouka in LA

Born and raised in LA (I'm 27), but currently in Ithaca, NY going to grad school. I'm from Venice, and despite the westside changing drastically in the last 10 years...I would suggest Townhouse (venice) Renees (santa monica) and a divey bar around 14th and Wilshire (also in santa monica) that I can't remember the name of that is pretty cool ($3 pints in SM is almost unheard of). "Pizzarito" has been around since the '80's and has been serving some of the best pizza I've had (in L.A.) for the price since then. Located in marina del rey. If you want to sleeze on some LMU girls try Brennans.

Burgers are decent there. Excellent onion rings.

If you mean the one on Sawtelle near Olympic, it was still open as of a month or two ago.

I think the divey bar you're talking about is called 14 below or something like that (you walk down some steps after going through the front door), although it has changed management (haven't been there in some years) and may have changed names. If it's the one I'm thinking of, the bar is along the wall fronting 14th and there's a small stage area for bands towards the back? And while it's no Skybar or whatever, it isn't (or wasn't) all that divey, at least by my lowbrow standards. More of a neighborhood bar with a small performance space.

Just don't go to The Standard. That place is douchey as fuck.

Which one was your douchetastic experience at? I find the place epitomizes LA attitude, the drinks are watery and the food is what I imagine prison food tasting like. And, now that I have a roofdeck downtown, I really don't need that from them either. However I will continue going to the Rudy's at the downtown location, as there's one guy who does a really good job for cutting my hair.
