The effects of the pandemic have been felt everywhere, restaurants being some of the places which were affected the most. Throughout the past few years, various eateries around downtown Los Angeles have developed ways to survive and thrive through it all. In this special live event with How To LA’s Cheap, Fast Eats team, we’ll hear from folks at great budget-friendly spots in notoriously-pricey downtown LA. We’ll get the origin story of how superstar flour tortillas get made and hear tales of how restaurant owners and workers have endured everything the past few years, through innovation and creativity. Join hosts Brian De Los Santos and Gab Chabrán who seek to uncover what it took to persevere and succeed with food in downtown Los Angeles. And of course, there will be something delicious to eat!
