The Tasty Chronicles: If and when you finally make it to Downtown Los Angeles, I recommend a visit to The Grand Central Market to eat, drink, and shop. This Foodie mecca is perhaps the best representation of L.A. food all under one roof. 

One of my favorite food stalls at The Grand Central Market is Sticky Rice where the Thai street food menu is small, but a good one with favorites like Hainan Chicken, Panang Curry, and the ever so hot and spicy fresh Papaya Salad.

The Grand Central Market, Sticky Rice, and many other food stalls are easily accessible via the LA Metro Red Line at the Pershing Square Station. Just follow the signs to 4th Street/The Grand Central Market and the Angel’s Flight.
