Joshua Lurie

The burrito, a beloved Mexican food item featuring a flour tortilla and a range of fillings, has origins in northern Mexico, with most people pointing toward the border town of Ciudad Juárez. Now, some of the most famous burritos are rooted in California. For instance, Mission burritos in San Francisco can be massive, and in San Diego the California burrito is known to contain French fries. In Los Angeles, we’re not bound by any particular traditions, so you’ll find a far larger variety, including many Asian fillings. L.A.’s most famous burrito may belong to Manuel’s Original El Tepeyac Café in Boyle Heights, which holds the distinction of serving burritos the size of small schnauzers. However, you’ll probably enjoy these 10 standout burritos even more.

Yakitori at Hinotori

Top 10 Yakitori Restaurants in Los Angeles


Clarissa Wei

In Japan, yakitori refers to bite-sized chicken meat or offal, strung on bamboo sticks and cooked over charcoal until beautiful crisp grill marks appear. In the states, that term has expanded to describe restaurants that serve grilled Japanese skewers. Also known as izakaya restaurants, meals at these places are fast, casual affairs that are usually paired with a sizeable glass of beer. Charcoal is the preferred cooking method because the ash radiates infrared rays to help seal in the flavor. Typically, the skewer is then dressed with salt or basted with yuzu or a sweet soy sauce. When it comes to yakitori, it’s all about the flavor. Here are 10 great yakitori restaurants in Los Angeles.
