It's 2 a.m., where do you go to get your chowhound fix?

gotta go with the Pantry, a t bone every once in a while is healthy. Fine dining after 2am, you're gonna have to stretch your definitions to eat. At that hour I would call Mao's Kitchen fine but I forget how late they stay open.

Best Coffee in LA

Where's 3 Square? Yes, the pastries are delicious but I only eat one maybe every 3rd visit otherwise...

Best Coffee in LA

I enjoy Groundworks. And I always like a little history about a place. These days my favorite place for a cup of coffee is Rockenwagner bakery on Washington Blvd. near Beethoven. The cup says julius meinl, since 1862 on it. It's very good.

Best Carne Asada Burrito In West LA Santa Monica?

well, yes, at Gallegos they are an old, established deli that was in Santa Monica for 40 years before they moved to Venice Blvd. They don't go out of their way to serve the masses. They open 7 or 8am to 6pm M-F. And they close at 4:30 on Sat!
but there are a ton of treats on the menu. I believe the barbacoa is beef and it is a heavenly marianade. Just meat, onions and salsa. So good. If you're lucky they sometimes have sweet, flaky empanadas for a desert, I think the cherry is fantastic. Good luck getting over there when they're open.

Best Carne Asada Burrito In West LA Santa Monica?

Go try the barbacoa burrito at Gallegos Mexican Deli. South side of Venice Blvd. in a strip mall just west of Centinela. Simple, flavorful, juicy, hard to keep the wrapping paper dry, burrito.
