The weekend is here, so that means take out or dining out. Here’s an insider look on some of my favorite places to eat!
1. Jinya (Lunch/Dinner)
Jinya is probably my first to-go place when I’m in the mood for some ramen soup. It’s located in the heart of Studio City, right off Ventura Blvd. and Tujunga Ave. Whether you’re in the mood to people watch or enjoy sitting inside, this place offers both options. My favorite soup is the Wonton Chicken Ramen with their infamous Jinya Bun! Can you say yummy? If you are looking for a casual date with delicious food, check this place out.
FYI- Get there early, it does get crowded at night.
2. Langers Deli (Lunch)
Located in Downtown L.A off the concern of 7th Street and S Alvarado St, Langers is sure to please those Pastrami Lover’s. Langer is famous for their Pastrami Sandwich and their Chili Cheese Pastrami Fries. Need I say more? If you are looking to please the meat lover in you, then this place is calling your name. You’ll see what the hype is all about!
FYI- Lines do get long, and there is a waiting list. Hurry what are you waiting for?
3. iPic Theater (Dinner/Nightlife)
The weekend is all about watching new blockbusters with friends and family. iPic is definitely on my Friday night activities. If you are looking to impress your date or just enjoy a relaxing date night, well you have to check this place out. I’m talking about Lazy Boy chairs that recline and servers that come take your order. A movie theater where you can eat and drink alcohol too, yes please! If you haven’t already, you have to try their Truffle Fries, they are to die for. Their burgers and pizza are extremely delicious too.
4. The Perch (Dinner/Brunch)
If you are looking for a romantic first date with the perfect view, then eat at The Perch. Hands down a perfect view of Los Angeles and to top it all off, the food is incredible. This place is more on the expensive side, but totally worth it. If you’re a pork lover, then I suggest their Pork Belly as an appetizer. Their Filet Mignon is worth the try, and the Gnocchi is extremely decadent.
5. Blu Jams Cafe (Breakfast/Brunch)
My girlfriends and I love coming here for breakfast or brunch on Sunday’s. Located in the heart of Sherman Oak, this restaurant aims to please all breakfast lovers. Starting with their Eggs Benedict and Grilled Potatoes that will have you wanting more. For a lighter meal, their Large Fresh Fruit Bowl will make sure to keep you feeling full and healthy. You can not forget their, Crunchy French Toast! Topped with fresh fruit, served with powdered sugar and their vanilla bean sauce, will have you coming back for more.
