Every now and then, you need to eat later than usual. Maybe you had to work late, or you need something after last call, or your dinner earlier just didn’t cut it. Ironically, in this city filled with so much nightlife, it can be hard to eat good food after that dreaded 10 p.m. closing time that many of our beloved eateries abide by. There isn’t anything necessarily wrong with eating greasy tacos and even greasier bacon-wrapped street hot dogs every once in a while. But if you’re craving something that’s even remotely more wholesome, here is our multicultural list of exceptional eateries around town that offer just a little more to hold you over - at least until breakfast.

Spicy food is easy to come by in Los Angeles. There are such a variety of spices available, from the tongue-numbing Sichuan peppercorn to the elusive ghost chili. Here’s a tip: don’t wash it down with cold water. Water actually will spread the spice in your mouth and make the burning sensation worse.

The Best Pho Restaurants in Los Angeles

Pho has been around for a century and is indisputably the national dish of Vietnam. A good pho takes hours to make; beef bones and parts are simmered under low heat to obtain a rich, complex flavor. Pho is typically divided into two camps. Southern pho is the more common one, with an abundant use of spices and flavorings (fish sauce, hoisin, etc.) and versatile cuts of meat like tripe and brisket. Northern pho is much more simplistic - the noodles are flatter and wider, and the focus is on its pure beef broth. The main ingredients are rice noodles and thinly sliced raw beef. In the north, accoutrements are not necessary. Here are ten great places to get your pho fix in Los Angeles.
